Turkey…or Striped Bass?

“the notes of William Bradford of the Plymouth Plantation come as no surprise:

“’They begane to gather in ye small harvest they had, and to fitte up their houses and dwellings against the winter [. . .] For as some were thus imployed in affairs abroad, others were excersised in fishing, aboute codd, and bass, and other fish of which yey tooke good store, of which every family had their portion.’”

• Thames River Area

“Normally, by Thanksgiving, hordes of striped bass have begun to collect, if not move up, into the Thames River.”
