The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife recently announced that Chris Kahler speared a New Jersey state record winter flounder (spearfishing category).
Chris was free diving near a jetty in Manasquan Inlet when he speared the 3 pound, 5 ounce winter flounder which measured 20 inches in length.
In 2014, the NJ Record Fish Program was expanded with the addition of a Spearfishing category for saltwater.
Seventeen (17) species commonly sought after by spear fishers are included in the category.
