The Fascinating Flounder

by Ryan Collins

The winter flounder is also known as a "black back" and is native to the waters of New England. Both of the winter flounder's eyes are nearly always positioned on the right side of their body. They spend their time along the bottom, eating worms, clams, mussels and many other crustaceans and small fish. Winter flounder are also highly regarded for their delicious white meat.

Earlier this month I was finally successful in capturing underwater images of this amazing little fish, and today I'm happy to share the images and footage with you on My Fishing Cape Cod. Members of My Fishing Cape Cod can click here to uncover more details about where and how this footage was captured.

Tight lines and Happy Memorial Day Weekend! 🎣

I'm fortunate to have grown up on the beach, and I've been fishing since kindergarten. I have great family, friends and fishing experiences to be thankful for. Just being out there is enough-catching fish is just a bonus!

  • What a cool video. They are such a funny looking fish with the mouth one way and the eyes on top. Awesome to see them in slow mo. Have a great Memorial Day Weekend!
