Bluefish

It’s autumn and migration is in full swing. But more than just birds are preparing for their long journey south. Bluefish are on their way to warmer weather in Florida now as well. 

During the summer, bluefish are concentrated from northern Maine to Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. Lots of these greenish blue fish swim in and around the Chesapeake Bay. Their abundance reaches a peak near the mouth of the Bay from April to July and again from October to now. During the winter, most bluefish tend to be offshore and south between Cape Hatteras and Florida.
