May seem like a dumb question but anyone in the NE fishing buoy gear for swords?
It is legal With permit. Some People have had success with it in the NE Canyons. As with any type of fishing subtle changes in gear make all the difference.You can 100% use Buoy Gear in the NE as long as you have the permit. It’s a FEDERAL waters permit. I’ve done it and it’s not like FL where your buoys cover a lot of ground as they drift North in the Stream. The mixed currents in the NE canyons tends to scatter the gear and sometimes not take it very far so it’s not as effective.
