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

Greenport & Orient
Up and down weather on the east end this week and another front coming through on Friday have all contributed to a slower than normal fluke & striped bass season on the North Fork, but a super start to the porgy season. For instance the Peconic Star party boat out of Greenport has plenty of giant porgies being caught and again going home early every day with great action. They are fishing close to Greenport up in Peconic Bay using clam strips and no problem getting your limit of porgies to fill the cooler & freezer. They are also catching some weakfish and schoolie bass on these trips. Best early season fluking on the North Fork is usually inside Peconic Bay from Greenport and in and around the west side of Shelter Island but it has been slower than normal. Zak from the Miss Molly charter boat says water temps have risen quickly from 48 last week to 56 this week, but squid, fluke and striped bass are all scattered and slower than usual. They’ll catch most fish in the Peconic Bay area and have a 9 inch fluke one drift and a 9 pounder on the next. They find one fluke right away and make several drifts for one or two more, this tells us they are scattered about, but it could happen any day as draggers are hitting a nice body of fluke offshore. Same thing for the stripers, they are here and there as anglers drag wire line to catch a mix of schoolies and keeper bass. Most of it is still in the bay area and the Southold Bridge will hold smaller bass from 12 to 22 inches on light tackled bucktails. Early morning the best time.

 

Peconic Star II (631- 289-6899): The Peconic Star reported nothing has changed except it is starting to feel like spring/summer and the porgy fishing got even better. They will be cleaning fish till 9 p.m.. Seventy people all had limits and some weakfish on the boat today as well. All nice giant porgies and people thowing back 50 as well...insane action and again going home early every day with great action. They are fishing close to Greenport up in Peconic Bay using clam strips and no problem getting your limit of porgies to fill the cooler & freezer. They are also catching some weakfish and schoolie bass on these trips. Lots of bait and good signs of things to come. They are sailing 7:30 to 3 p.m. for porgies everyday and the fluke boat will start sailing next week if not sooner. On the web at www.peconicstarboats.com.  

Huntington to Port Jeff
Decent bass fishing now with tons of shorts around and the larger fish should be in after this full moon this weekend so look for them. Fluke season is open! 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 them and would certainly appreciate them. Text them to 516-435-8382 or e mail Rich@thefishingline.com.


James Joseph II (
631-680-8159)
: Capt. Jim said it is staring to feel like spring and the fluking has picked up and the Sound is finally in the high 50's and was 59 degrees on Saturday (5/18). They had 35 keepers to 7 pounds on Friday and had two over 7 and many over 5 pounds. Same good action and same numbers of fish with a 100 shorts or more and 70 people on the boat Saturday. The striped bass charters are doing great right now too! Fluke fishing full days 7 am to 3 p.m. Information can be found on the website at www.jamesjosephfishing.com.    

 

City Island / Western LI Sound
We're going to wrap this up now for the season...no reports coming in, no one really trying. Thanks for being with us this season and please look for our new podcasts in 2019. As for herring, they have no rhyme or reason you just have to go when you can go and hope they are biting. 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 them and would certainly appreciate them. Text them to 516-435-8382 or e mail Rich@thefishingline.com.
