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 reports they started the fluke season on Tuesday with a little picky fishing after two days of 30 miles per hour winds. They did okay with 60 keepers on the boat and the pool winner was just shy of 8 pounds for Bill Fullerton. They had about 52 anglers and lots of action with shorts and sea robins. The rest of the week leading into Saturday (5/21) was pretty good but a little picky. They sail every day with 30 to 40 anglers and they'll do 35 to 60 keeper fluke based on how good the drifting conditions are that day. Sunday they had a good day on the fluke with a dozen anglers scoring at least 2 per person and the pool winner was 6-12/ pounds. Pool winners usually are 6 to 8 pounds or so. Sailing daily for fluke full day at 7:30 a.m.

The porgy fishing has been INSANE!! Early limits and giant porgies. Even the fluke are eating 4 to 5 inch porch porgies the scup are so thick in this area! Just tremendous porgy fishing and limits for all!! Saturday was spectacular and the limited the boat early! Sunday was a little pickier with so many boats on the water that they spooked. All nice size Spring jumbo porgies. They sail at 7:30 everyday for giant jumbo spring porgies at 7:30 am. On the web at


Huntington to Port Jeff

Terminal Tackle (631-269-6005): John Richey reported best action is to the west in Little Neck and Manhasset bays with bass and blues. They are seeing bass to 38 inches trolled on wire line now in 50 foot of water in the Triangle and some of the humps out there on umbrellas and bunker spoons. For fluke look at Crane’s on Tuesday’s opener but there is plenty of fluke in the general area closer to home already. Fluke at the Golf Course and Crab Meadow already. Should be a good opener! Make sure you ask for your Terminal Tackle catalogue, it's free! On the web at  


James Joseph II (631-651-8235): Capt. James Schneider reports they started the fluke season on Tuesday with 47 keepers for about 35 people and mixed with almost 300 shorts and pool winner over 6 pounds. Capt. James Schneider reports excellent fluking since the opener and it has gotten better every day and they see 50 to 70 keepers per trip. With 35 to 45 anglers per trip the keeper ratio is super and pool winner 4 to 6 pounds every day. The 4:30 trips as well are doing very well on the fluking with lots of limits too. Sailing for fluke full day trips 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 4:30 pm to dark every day. On the web at


City Island / Western LI Sound
Best bet is the bass fishing in the Hudson River, now with bass from Piermont to Croton and as far north as Tarrytown. Bloodworms and herring are both working and we’ve heard of a few to 42 pounds. Smaller schoolies bass with a keeper or two to 30 inches in both Little Neck and Manhasset on the bunker and spreading eastward.
