Hooked On Flounder

Friday, 15 March 2013 00:00

Beginners to old salts can’t

resist this fun, easy fishing

Whether or not spring shows its softer side, there will be plenty of fishing enthusiasts drowning sandworms on April 1st in pursuit of winter flounder. The two-month-long flounder season opens in April and is Long Island Sound’s harbinger of spring, offering what many consider the most delicious fish in our waters.

The Angler Fleet out of Port Washington sails for flounder daily, offering the unique feeling you get as the big fishing boat settles over a quiet bay sandflat early on a frigid morning. With minimal boat traffic this early in the season, the silence is overwhelming, and the morning sun gives the scenery a crisp clarity.
