temperatures on the western end of the island rising to 42 degrees, an
uptick in flounder fishing is noticeable from the
North Channel Bridge,
Pier and off the Cross Bay
trestle mostly on sandworms. Moving eastward, you can hear crickets

boats and in Quogue
Striped bass season
opens on April 15 and some action has started ion the area of the VZ
Bridge, Crossbay Bridge and in the back by the Rockaway's. Warmer
weather as we approach Passover and Easter can change migratory patterns
in a heartbeat.
Local angler Anthony reported on Monday (4/14) that
stripers are starting to hit near the VZ Bridge as he caught three on
Sunday using Bloodworms. We also heard from
Stefan Ramjag that he and his buddies have started to fish in the back
of the Rockaway's and the Cross Bay Bridge and had a couple huge bass.
One was was about 40
pounds, but couldn't get a good picture as the park police made sure we
immediately put back anything caught. No bunker as yet. Some people have
told us they saw a few in the bay, but we haven't seen any ourselves as
yet. Looking to go out tonight again fish after midnight as season
opens. We caught two like this, but the rest of the night was dead.

Tom reports they
are open but not too many people anywhere. Later this month they will get their skiffs in the water ready
for the fluke season. They have your frozen flounder baits and your
tackle needs ready for you. On
the web at
Capt. Tommy Weiss says
they did sail this past weekend even though it seems to blow every day. They
do see a little more life and things are better every day with more life
than the day before as it is coming back. They are fishing shallower in
90 to 110 foot of water and see a few ling and handful of cod with some
respectable blackfish they have to throw back and as we said each day is
better than the day before. They expect to be back on a seven day
schedule on Wednesday April 23. They will continue sailing three days a
at 7 a.m. for cod and
from the East Marina in Point Lookout.
