NY's 2014 Fluke Reg's Almost Official

City Island / Western LI Sound
Jack’s Bait and Tackle (718-885-2042): John DeCuffa reports a beautiful weekend with 70 degrees starting on Friday and running through Monday. They started to see a nice uptick in the flounder population with some fish in the Eastchester Bay area shallow waters. A few on the Orchard Beach Lagoon too. Water temps are mid 40’s and the flounder still have some mud on their bellies but they are more active for sure. Look for temps to drop back into the 40’s for midweek. Some striper action really turning on in the Hudson now with fish from Piermont and anywhere north of the Tappan Zee from Nyack through Tarrytown on the bloodworms and even into Peekskill now with some on sandworms. Still no fresh bunker or bunker sighting yet. Hours now are 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. and once they are rolling with the bass season open on April 15 they will open the shop at 5 a.m. They have mussels and worms and all flounder & trout baits. Their skiffs are in the water and ready for your folks to flounder fish with recession buster pricing this year. Only $59.99 weekdays and weekends is $69.99 for a full day rental including the gas.

Huntington-Mid Sound to Port Jeff
Terminal Tackle (631-269-6005): John Richey reported most of the action is off the docks in the far back northern bays like Northport harbor for flounder and just as god as being off a boat. Sandworms are best. A few trout for the freshwater guys and a few osprey diving now so there must be some herring. On the web at


James Joseph II (631-651-8235) : Capt. James Schneider reports they will start full day flounder fishing on Saturday April 19. They will sail 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. for giant north shore flounder. Bait supplied free of course. On the web at

Peconic Star II (631- 289-6899): Capt. Dave reports they are working on the boat as we speak and will see you all for the start of the fluke season in May! On the web at
