Clams the bait of choice!

The Catch

With Greater Boston considered ground zero for winter flounder, it’s encouraging to hear of a few flatties taken throughout the Plymouth area as well! Captain Mark Rowell of Legit Fish Charters knows of some who are targeting them among the vast flats/channel edges throughout the Three Bays and they are doing well. You should also do well this weekend chasing schoolie to keeper-size blitzes throughout the area as they are now commonplace! Obviously an early pre-traffic rise will improve your chances. Meanwhile Mark is finding one long ribbon of mackerel stretching from Stellwagen through Scituate. All that cow candy is just begging for a yard-stick long stripers to crash the party! I have no word on fish of that size yet but in all likelihood those fish will displace the current small keepers as newsworthy soon. For haddock, the skipper is finding them between 150 and 177 feet near the NE corner of the bank with clams the bait of choice. “On the Water”
