Jim Oriscak of Toms River has made his way onto the state record fish list recently by landing a winter flounder while spearfishing. Jim was free diving off the shore of the Shark River "back bay" when he landed the 3 pound, 7 ounce fish.
The new record winter flounder-spearfishing measured 18.75 inches and had a 16.5 inch girth. It weighed 2 ounce more than the previous record.
