Reel People: Fishermen of Plum Island

The Fishermen of Plum Island is a one-hour documentary film exploring the culture of fishing on Plum Island, Massachusetts. The barrier island just off the coast of Newburyport is one of the finest fishing locales in the Northeast and draws an exceptionally diverse group of people searching for Striped Bass, Bluefish, Cod, Flounder, Mackerel and others.

Through a series of interviews and live-action footage, director James Waldron brings out the dedication of the fishermen on Plum Island in a human and lighthearted style.
