January 29, 2017 — Ice fishermen and groundhogs are scarce today.
The weather will make more ice this week, and some groundhogs will pose on their day Thursday.
So much for good news. Summer flounder fishermen will have to wait until next month to see if their season will be crippled by size reductions this summer.
The Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council will vote then on options that could the increase minimum size to 19 inches and a shorter season.
