Snackdown: River Herring Versus Stripers and Snappers

Studies show that manmade structures funnel herring into predators’ mouths

BY JASMINE LU JAN 5, 2022

WELLFLEET — In the summer, alewives and bluebacks — two species of herring that in spring migrate from the coastal marshes here to the Herring River’s kettle ponds — stay in the ponds to forage and feed until fall. As temperatures drop, these juvenile herring swim downstream, leaving their freshwater spawning grounds for the sea. There, they spend several years growing into adults. Each spring, mature herring face a daunting task: pulling a U-turn and pushing their way back up the Herring River to spawn the next generation.

Caught some monster pickeral and largemouths in the channels that feed those ponds.When the Great I project gets done that area will be great!
