Long Island Sound Reports On Radio Show
John Richy of Terminal Tackle joins Rich Johnson weekly, live on The Fishing Line Radio Show
Saturday afternoons at 4 p.m. on WGBB 1240AM radio to give current and live updated reports for the LI Sound Region

Peconic Star II (631- 289-6899): Capt. Dave reported again the same dealio…great great porgy fishing no matter how many people are on the boat. Saturday (6/25) 50 people had all the porgies their hearts could handle. Just fantastic!! Same thing during the week. Just super-duper porgy fishing and some days they have to go home early. Same thing Sunday and Monday (6/27) as they went home early on Monday the porgy fishing is the best in 10 years. All giant porgies and so many you can't even get the bait to the bottom for sea bass.

The fluke boat did great on Friday with quite a few limits but did not get out on Saturday. Sunday they did well with a half dozen limits around the boat for 19 people, everybody had a fluke or two to take home and pool winner almost 7 pounds. Two full day boats sailing daily at 7:30, one for porgies and one for fluke

Huntington to Port Jeff
Terminal Tackle
John Richey reported the only real change is the bunker and giant teen size blues that showed mid-week in the deeper areas like the Triangle and surrounding areas where there is structure and probably outside Crane’s Neck. This has put a little damper on the bass action, but still bass of 30 to 46 pounds have been weighed in like at buoy 15. Over on the CT side look at buoys 32A and 28C. Otherwise g
reat fishing all the way around as striper action is solid with big fish being caught. Trolling is not as hot as the chunking, in the deep water on wire line with fish to 30 pounds on the spoons, while a mix of shorts and fish to 15 pounds are falling prey to umbrella rigs.

Fluking is very good anywhere in Smithtown Bay and still some very big fluke mixed in. Every day several 5 to 7 pounders come through the door to hit the scales. Lots of action and plenty of limits anywhere in here. Porgy fishing is super and getting better with the best of it seeming to be east of Terminal Tackle down around Port Jeff as that area is banging the porgies big time. Big scup too! Closer to Smithtown all along the beaches have porgies at Crab Meadow, Callahan’s and Mackamah as long as the top half of either tide is in play. As long the rocks are covered with water they catch porgies. The good news for this upcoming week is a relaxation of sea bass regulations. Beginning Monday, June 27, we can keep three sea bass per day 15 inches or larger. Make sure you ask for your Terminal Tackle catalogue, it's free! On the web at  

James Joseph II (631-651-8235): CCapt. James Schneider reports fluking this week has been best on the 7 a.m. trips and the 4:30 p.m. trips with a slow pick on the noontime trips. Just the way the tides worked out. The good trips see limits all around the boat and tons of action on shorts and sea robins. The noon trips saw the slow pick but some large fish. Pool winners run 5 to 8 pounds. They are now sailing 7 am, noon and 4:30- for giant fluke. Monday saw a good morning trip with some large fluke and a good pick on the noon trip too. They are now sailing 7 am, noon and 4:30 pm for giant fluke. On the web at


City Island / Western LI Sound
Reports have good bass fishing right now and the dusk bite is red hot as Sal & Vinny fished Friday night and had 40 fish between 7 and 10 pm with many 25 to 35 pound fish on the chunks. Fish the edge of the channel at Stepping Stones for some great action. The top of the outgoing in that area but also the incoming river tide is very good over by there. Still bass at the reef east/northeast behind Harts Island. Shallow water action live lining bunker in here, 40 to 50 foot of water at Stepping Stones Light. Execution also has fish. The guys fishing midnight till dawn are doing five to 15 bass of 25 to 35 pounds, while the morning and daytime bite sees bass 15 to 25 pounds. Good bass fishing at the Glen Island Gazeebo and Hudson Park. Fluking is okay, not great and not a lot of fish around. You’ll fish a few hours for a handful of fluke, mostly all keeper size and millions of sea robins. Porgies have been seen as close as Rye Playland but the larger porgies are over in the Greenwich area. You still need to travel east to find them.
