As of this typing, it's at 12%. I talked to one guy who fishes commercially for bass and he told me the first day of the season was slow. Hopefully it will pick up and the season will be successful and last a while.
I heard the other day that several people are feeding the seals that have taken up residence at Great Point and the surrounding waters. They catch bluefish in the rip and then bring the fish to the beach and feed them to the seals. They are also attracting the seals to their boats by splashing fish in the water until the seals come up to the boat and eat from their hands.
I wonder if this is legal? Aren't seals a federally protected animal?
