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.

W. Brooks Paternotte took the helm of Irvine Nature Center as executive director in July 2013 and immediately began building on the strong 35-year foundation. Brooks is a Baltimore native who was a teacher, coach, advisor, dean and Head of the Middle School during his 13 years at Boys’ Latin School in Baltimore. He is also an instructor and ambassador of the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) and is a Leave No Trace Master, as well as an avid outdoorsman and a features writer for FlyLife Magazine.
