First NJ Record Fish by Spearfishing Certified - Fluke

October 27, 2014


The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife has officially certified the first entry into the new Spearfishing category in the State Record Fish Program.

Robert A. Davis of Bamber Lake, New Jersey, speared the state record fluke (summer flounder) on August 4, 2014, just five days following the initiation of the new Spearfishing category. The fish weighed in at 15 pounds 5 ounces which exceeded the set minimum weight of 12 pounds. The fluke is also being recognized as a World Record by the International Underwater Sprearfishing Association (IUSA).

The exceptional specimen was harvested near Barnegat Lighthouse in 20 feet of water.
