: Herring Run at Canal

On the way to the Cape I stopped at the canal herring run to show my 11 year old. Lots of herring making their way up the ladder. Quite a site. My son enjoyed watching them. He asked loads of questions. I even knew the answer to a few.

We are very fortunate to have these resources right in our back yard.

That's a great lesson for kids, my dad brought me there for the same reasons and one of my earliest eye-opening experiences with a big bluefish that cut my herring in half was right there.

I brought my kids to the Stony Brook fish ladders when they were young as well, to let them put their hands into the water and feel hundreds of herring finning by.

Time to go fish the bayside for big early cows...
