Huntington-Mid Sound to Port Jeff
Terminal Tackle (631-269-6005): John Richey says some white perch now behind the Taco Bell in Huntington on small spinners and pieces of night crawlers. Trout over in Argyle Lake which can be pretty steady and the new trout stocking will be soon as well.  If you would like to share your reports whether you caught fish or not, or what the conditions were where you fished, we’re sure everybody could benefit from themeverything is frozen over with 12 inches of ice on Northport Harbor. Other than this a few smaller ponds are frozen and some sweetwater anglers are finding some good largemouth through the ice. No word on the trout in the ponds yet. For March they are running sales on Gibbs, Sluggos and plastics so stop on in. On the web at

James Schneider reports they have a booth this year at the Somerset Saltwater Expo so stop on by and get deals on Wheel-well porgy trips on the 38 footer and get the schedule for the James Joseph II starting trips for Spring.
