Went to bay park in east rock away on Saturday and was surprised to see bunker were splashing around in the canal. Very surprised to see bunker in February. Looks like the 2017 season is getting off to an early start

Not that unusual. Last year, we had peanut bunker in our harbor in early March which suggests they stayed around all winter. But it does bode well for an early season.

Water temperatures at least 5 to 8 degrees warmer than normal. No ice to speak of in the canals and bay never iced over once. If flounder were around and legal to catch you can bet that they would already be biting. But we know that this is not going to happen this year or perhaps ever again. Gone are they like the buffalo...tight lines...

Flounder

The dec needs to shut down flounder fishing for a few seasons as they did the striped bass and hopefully they can make a comeback like the striped bass did
