Boater/angler meeting with NYSDEC, USCG, Fast Ferry & NJ Marine Police
This free meeting will include presentations from the USCG explaining “Operation Clear Channel.” There will also be representatives on hand from New Jersey Fast Ferry and New Jersey Marine Police. NYS DEC Officers will be on hand to field any questions about rules and regulations for the upcoming season. This is a great opportunity for anglers and boaters to bring their concerns and questions about a variety of issues, directly to those who can answer.
Were you ever cut off or “waked” by a Fast Ferry and felt it was unnecessary? Here’s your chance to bring it to their attention.
How many times do you wonder where the NY/NJ border is when you are on the water fishing? Which regs should you follow? With representatives from both agencies on hand, here is your chance to get a definitive answer.
Meeting includes free refreshments and fishing tackle door prizes. This is a free, no fee, and non fund-raising event. Seating is limited. Call or e-mail Mr. Richie Chan to reserve a seat. This meeting is in co-operation with The Fishermen’s Conservation Association and The Great Kills Yacht Club. As an added post-meeting feature, the test out option will be available for those in need of a NJ Safe Boating Certificate at a reduced rate.
