President's Report

by Mark Taylor
(from Jersey Coast Anglers Association April 2018 Newsletter)

I am currently at the Saltwater Fishing Expo in the JCAA Booth writing my monthly article. It has been a very busy month since the last issue. There was a meeting on porgy, seabass, blackfish and summer flounder (fluke) regulations which Past President Paul Haertel was there representing JCAA. Paul did a great job summarizing what went on at that meeting which is in this newsletter and also on our Facebook page.

I would like to thank everyone that came by our booth at shows and participated in our fundraiser High Roller Raffle purchasing some raffle tickets. A special thanks go to the individuals that volunteered their time in the JCAA booth at the shows. You should thank them also when you see them because they are there working hard for you. You should think about volunteering your time next year and see how hard these people are working for you.

It is a sad time in the recreational fishing community. We recently lost two great people that worked hard at what they loved. One of them was legendary Lefty Kreh. He is one of the greatest saltwater fly fishermen and instructors that fished New Jersey beaches along with the rest of the world. Lefty has touched so many with his passion for the sport. He will be missed but memories live on. I feel blessed meeting and talking with Lefty over the years.

The other great person was Noel T. Angelucci, the current President of Fortescue Fishing Club. He was a very knowledgeable and dedicated person for the members and people that fished that area. He will also be missed by me and the people he fought for.
