As this year’s first crop of bay scallops came in to Southold Fish Market Monday, the baymen agreed: this season could have started better.
“We actually thought it was going to be good,” said Charlie Manwaring, owner of the fish market, “but a lot of guys are coming in, many guys not [reaching] their limit.”
The bay scallop season kicked off Monday, with many bemoaning a lackluster start that didn’t match up to the success of years past.
