Maine flounder

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Tne flounder fishing on Long Island is such a sad, pathetic remnant of what it once was, that I can barely be bothered with it. What's the winter flounder season like in Maine? A June thing, I assume. Where ought a tourist go?

Never caught one in Maine, never seen one. I dont think there is even a fishable population. From what I understand there used to be, but dont think there is many around anymore.

Not too many years ago, Winter Flounder were the most prolific flatfish in the Gulf of Maine, especially the eaturaries from Cape Ann to the Kennebec area. Today, you can go for days without finding one.

And, yet, NMFS just did their latest stock assessment and announced that Winter Flounder are not overfished and are not in danger of being overfishing. Yet, commercial landings in Portland and Gloucester have diminised to a few tons each year. Even the commercial fishermen will tell you that they can't find W. Flounder.

Something is really rotten here.
