Probably with nobody watching and no reporting either. :point: MakoMike commercial fisherman or spokesperson for sure.

Well if you look at this graph of last years catch it contradicts your belief, most of the fish are landed from may to August, and by this time last year close to 90% of the fish were caught, and the quota was 800,000 pounds, of which they caught 88%, this year the quota is over a million pounds, because we all know fluke are getting more plentiful every year :banghd:

Just the facts, you can draw you own conclusions. How many boats do you think are fluke fishing in Nov. and DEC. ?

Here are the facts about the Massachusetts commercial fluke fishery for 2019 and 2018, sure looks like the vast majority were clearly landed in the summer, are you talking about a different fishery ??

Looks like the majority of the landing were in Oct to Dec, does it not?

It does not, the steepest part of the slope is June through August and accounts for roughly 90% of fish landed.

Sounds like you don't know how to read a graph. The highest landings come after that steep slope.

Take a minute to think about it before the snarky (wrong) accusation.

 

Lets look at the 2019 figure.  Quota is roughly 750,000 lbs and the graph shows that by the end of Sept about 65% has been caught, aka approximately 487,500 lbs.  The final amount caught is 550,000 lbs meaning only 62,500 lbs was caught Oct-Dec.

I still would like to see a confirmation of that bust on August 8 of that many poachers in the Canal. If it is true, it needs to be publicized in a larger forum that SOL - although this site is certainly a good source to find about scofflaws and scumbags! Let's see the facts!

I guess that's partly why they also call Fluke, Summer Flounder.  :bigeyes:
