Listener's Report

Rockaway Inlet & NY Bight
The herring seem to be in deeper water now with the cold freeze, so the best places now are the 69th St. Pier and and Coney Island. The action inside the bay along the Sea Wall etc., has slowed considerably. 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 Text them to 516-435-8382 or E mail them to us at rich@thefishingline.com.

 

Jones & Deb's Inlets
Lots of cod action on hard bottom areas inshore with very few keepers most days, you can catch 30-40 cod and maybe have a half dozen keepers. The best of it seems to be on small pieces off Moriches where the keeper ratio is much higher. Herring action pretty slow at Magnolia and like most piers try sunrise and sunset options first then try to figure out the tide.

Capt. Al (516-361-9275): Capt. Tommy Weiss says lots and lots of cod around that's for sure. Saturday (1/17) they did very well with a lot of fish and lots of little cod but a about 30 keepers out of about 200 cod caught and pool winner about 8 pounds. Sunday they caught some fish in the morning and then it died in the afternoon in a really crappy ocean and conditions. The swell got bigger as the day went on and the bite slower as well and no trip on Monday. Tuesday was very good fishing again as it picked up right where it left off. Everybody had a few keepers, and plenty of shorts with the pool winner about a 10 pound codfish. Wednesday (1/21) they had about the same action but a better keeper ratio with nicer fish too, more 8 to 10 pounder with a 10 pounder winning the pool. They sail every day at 6 a.m. for cod, ling, whiting etc. with free bait from the East Marina in Point Lookout, LI.

 

Fire Island Inlet & Great South Bay:

Lots of cod action on hard bottom areas inshore with very few keepers most days, you can catch 30-40 cod and maybe have a half dozen keepers. The best of it seems to be on small pieces off Moriches where the keeper ratio is much higher. Herring action pretty slow at Magnolia and like most piers try sunrise and sunset options first then try to figure out the tide. The best herring reports he's heard of have come from the North Shore in Centerport etc. 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. Email them to us.

 

Moriches Inlet:
Silly Lily Fishing Station (631-868-0247):
Gary reports lots of cod action on hard bottom areas inshore with very few keepers most days, you can catch 30-40 cod and maybe have a half dozen keepers. The best of it seems to be on small pieces off Moriches where the keeper ratio is much higher. On the web at www.sillylily.com. Silly Lily has been featured more than once on The Fishing Line TV program, the most recent was Triggerfishing in the 2010 season. Also shows on Moriches Bay flounder and bucktailing Fluke the others when Gary & RJ scored big time on the flounder with over 30 fish in a few hours, 20 or more of them were keepers and they threw back keepers as well. You can order the extended home release DVD which is longer than the 30 minute show version by visiting The Fishing Line." On the web at www.sillylily.com.

Shinnecock Inlet/Hampton Bays:
Lots of cod action on hard bottom areas inshore off Moriches where the keeper ratio is much higher.

Montauk
Looks like it's is a wrap for the 2014 season with the only news some DEEP water sea bass and codfish. A few stray blackfish around but that season will be closed after the 14th so it will be cod and ling after that. Time to change fishing line, lubricate reels and hope that a cod fishery emerges during the winter. 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.
