The fishing reports you hear on "The
Fishing Line" are the only, true up to
the minute reports you can find in the entire fishing industry. If you follow the reports
on paper, you follow fish and never quite catch up. Good anglers know fish are always on
the move. Old news is no news...of any value!
I compile these reports late Friday night and all day
Saturday right up till air time. I call nearly, every tackle shop on Long Island and get
party and charter boat reports right from the captains on the VHF radio! Then my staff
work the phones, updating these reports through the show until finally, when I give one of
five (5) report segments, they are truly "up to the
minute." I'll give you fishing reports for the entire Long Island
region from Montauk to the NY Bight and all of Long Island Sound.
These reports are updated every 24 to 36
hours...HOWEVER...just because the words on the page have not changed...does not
mean we didn't make the calls to update the reports. It takes 12
to 14 hours to do all these reports and if nothing has changed for better or for
worse...then we can't spending 12 hours typing new words to say the same things. If and
when the fishing changes, we'll change the words to say so. If the reports haven' changed
then the fishing has not changed!!
In this section of "The
Fishing Line" on the Web, the up to the minute
fishing reports are downloaded every Saturday evening by yours truly when I return
home from doing "The Fishing Line" radio show. This way, in case you missed the
broadcast (shame on you!), you can download all the up to minute reports for your use on
Sunday and the following week, thus increasing your catch & success rate. Then I do
the whole thing over again for the Sunday edition, so the reports are fresh Sunday
afternoon & evening too!
Simply click on the Report Section you wish to read on the buttons to the left.
Remember, these reports are updated throughout the day Saturdays, so when you hit the
Know where the fish are...not where they were!!
