Re: Winter Flounder
All right, ya drew (chummed?) me in!
The flounder fishing we have in Boston Harbor has been steadily improving for the past 13 years or so. Until about 5 years ago the bass fishing was "very excellent" too. Since then the bass have pretty much gone down the tubes while that flounder have gotten better. The better flounder trend was evident before the downtrend in the bass fishing so I doubt they are related. Also, "we could" see much better (hard to imagine) flounder fishing in the future as there are far less bass to eat the juviniles now than a few years ago.
Now if I can convince the public that cormarants taste better than chicken.............JC
