Fan's Reports
.

 

Rockaway Inlet & NY Bight
With the back bays warming to near 80 degrees, fluke have moved to the deeper waters of the Tin Can Grounds, in the deeper channels near the VZ Bridge and in deeper troughs of the Coney Island Flats, or the up and down slopes of the Ambrose Channel, where squid/spearing combos and Gulp are enticing both short and keeper fluke to anglers’ hooks. Cocktail blues, following peanut bunker, have seemingly displaced bay fluke during the heat wave, while surfcasters pick away at kingfish near rock piles and jetties. Although both bluefish and striped bass have temporarily departed the scene, a mix of snappers, blue claws, kingfish and porgies can be had from Canarsie Pier, the 69th Street Pier and local docks and bulkheads. 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.

 

Jones & Deb's Inlets
Scotty's Fishing Station (516-432-4665):
Striped bass and bluefish have fled the heat wave and local waters, but fluke dominate in the bay and on the Atlantic Beach and Fishing Line Reefs where a 12 pound doormat was weighed in. Sea bass are keeping the fluke company on the reefs, which are relatively close to shore. When winds are light, anglers are finding keeper fluke on the Cholera Banks and on the Middle Grounds just south of the tankers and, while there is plenty of action from both fluke and sea robins in the bay, most fish are shorts.  Offshore, sharks have been caught 18 miles south of Jones Inlet on the Broadcast Wreck. Landlubbers are starting to see snappers and a few blue claws off local bulkheads and docks. 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.

Capt. Al (516-623-2248): Capt. Tommy Weiss says the 5:30 trips have been beating up the porgies real good. They have been hammering them and close to home too. A fantastic week on the 5:30 trips with limits all around. The full day 7 am trips have been seeing a real nice mixed bag with sea bass, porgies and fluke. Thursday was a typical example, while Friday in terrible winds they got the day in and mostly sea bass. Saturday (7/23) they had a shot at the porgies in the morning with a packed boat, then good action on the sea bass…a LOT of fluke with a handful of keepers and a real good number of ling as well. A good solid week as the summertime smorgasbord action on the Capt. Al continues. They sail every at 7 a.m. for sea bass, porgies & ling and EVERY evening 5:30 to 9:30 for sea bass and some porgies all from the East Marina in Point Lookout.

  

 

Fire Island Inlet & Great South Bay:
Bay action for fluke is exceptional at the top of an incoming tide on squid/spearing combos and Gulp with a nice mix of shorts and keepers. Fluke and sea bass share Fire Island Reef, where the fish tend to be larger. While the summer doldrums have convinced striped bass and bluefish to head to Montauk, surfcasters are finding a mix of cocktail blues, sea robins, small sharks and dogfish off the ocean beaches. A couple of anglers caught the first triggerfish from the Sore Thumb, while local docks feature a mix of snappers, blue claws, blowfish and small sea bass. 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.

 

Moriches Inlet:
Bay fluking is fantastic this past week with fish of 8 and 12 pounds weighed in. Most action buoys 14 out to Buoy 29 and as long as you find a place with wind and tide in the same direction you’ll catch fish. Good numbers of keepers and lots of shorts too. Bass have high-tailed it out of the area but a few are still lurking around in the bay and the inlet. Cocktail blues are being caught, no word on triggerfish yet and blue claws are in the coves.

Shinnecock Inlet/Hampton Bays:
Fluke fishing is increasing in quantity and quality both in the bay at Ram Pasture and the commercial docks and in the ocean in 80 to 90 feet of water east and west of Shinnecock Inlet from Mecox to Tiana with fish to 7 pounds weighed in. Shinnecock Canal features both porgies and fluke, while larger porgies still prefer Rodgers Rock in the Peconics. Clam chummers are coaxing a few striped bass to feed beneath the Ponquogue Bridge at night, while the inlet hosts returning bluefish and a few triggerfish on the rocks. 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.
 

Montauk
Striped bass and thinned out schools of bluefish keep anglers busy at the Elbow, the Point, Great Eastern and Pollack Rip where bass of 20 to 40 pounds are commonplace. Anglers trolling eels, spot, wire or parachutes are limiting out early and finding sea bass and porgies virtually anywhere two rocks come together. Fluke and sea bass as a tandem are at Frisbees, the Cartwright Grounds and Rocky Hill with many 4 to 5 pound fish in the fish box. Offshore, an early morning bite has developed for blue fin tuna at the Butterfish Hole and West Atlantis, approximately 20 to 25 miles from shore. 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.
