Mark Sosin Interview Here

Peconic Star II (631- 289-6899):
Capt. Dave Brennan reports during the week the fluke boat was under some maintenance so they did not sail again till Saturday (6/27).  Fluking was excellent for a light crowd of under a dozen, and they all had their boat limits and the pool winner was 8 pounds for Jody Wong of Brooklyn.


Porgy fishing during the week was excellent and wonderful again and every day they come in early with the boat loaded with limits of giant porgies. A few bluefish or sea robins mix in but is 99% all jumbo porgies. Get in it while the getting is good it may not last forever. Cloudy / rainy days are the absolute best! Peconic Fleet is sailing two boats daily 7:30 to 2:30 one for fluke and one for porgies from the Railroad Dock at Greenport with tons of free parking.


Huntington-Mid Sound to Port Jeff
Terminal Tackle (631-269-6005): John Richey reported looks like Saturday (6/27) into Sunday will be a wind out / rain out again. During the week the fluke keeper ratio seemed to get better with new fish moving down from the east. Fluking does not get any better than it is right now. All the usual places, Sunken Meadow, Ashroken, the Coast Guard Station and to the east over in Smithtown Bay from one end to the other. Keeper ratio way, way up now and no matter where you fish in Smithtown Bay there is lots of fluke. Porgy action is improving in 20 to 30 foot of water and the beach anglers are scoring more fish this week than last week. This gets better as we get into July and some very large sea bass around that you can’t keep.


Good bass fishing in 30 foot of water on the structures with sandworms the real ticket now as they see to be turning off to the trolling action. Fish the Triangle, on the lumps and down to Buoy 15. Bass in Huntington Bay on the bunker schools. More bluefish now showing in the 2 to 3 pound range on small plugs and jigs with Mackamah, Callahan’s and the west end of Sunken Meadow and most likely in front of the river. The medium size blues are in the Triangle and at Buoy 15, not millions of them but when the tide is running you can jig them and a few bass mix in. On the web at


James Joseph II (631-651-8235): Capt. James Schneider says during the week the fish bit all through the day so they always found places to fish and they fluke did bite. Overall it doesn't not matter whether you fished the 7 a.m., noon or 4:30 trip as they had action on all the trips this week. Friday was fantastic as they hot them at the Oil Dock in the morning, then the noon trip they hit the Obstruction Buoy. Pool winners run usually 7 to 8 pounds. A few 7 pounders on Saturday (6/27) morning trip as well. The noon trip was sloppy as the wind was starting to come on. They are now sailing for fluke three times daily at 7 a.m., noon and 4:30 p.m.  On the web at


City Island / Western LI Sound
Overall a very good week but hard east winds with rain for Saturday (6/27) / Saturday night / Sunday will make fishing tough. All the local points, Sands, Prospect, Mattinecock etc,. have fluke with more large fish than numbers of fish. Fluke over in to Rye etc., the Blouses, Hart's Island and East Chester Bay and several large fluke caught and weighed in over in CT as well.  Bass fishing is still red hot in the deep at Execution, the bridges, the rocks etc. and north to Rye. All on bunker in the deep say 45 to 60 feet of water closer to Execution Light. Bluefishing is red hot as well as the night bite for them is excellent and even the daytime bite is worth it.
