Rockaway Inlet & NY Bight
We the people—who happen to be anglers—have July 4th fishing options: fluke are all over both Sheepshead and Jamaica Bay providing action on Gulp and squid/spearing off Floyd Bennett Field, near JFK Airport and the Marine Pkwy Bridge. Fair warning: you’ll have to work to find keepers of 18 inches or larger fish. Size is not an issue with porgies as big porgies are calling area wrecks and reefs home awaiting a slice of clam. Bluefish are scattered throughout the bay and ocean, following meandering bunker schools while striped bass are frequenting Ambrose Channel mainly at night. One anonymous angler cited Ambrose when he weighed in a 52 pound linesider this week!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 them to us at rich@thefishingline.com.

 

Jones & Deb's Inlets
Scotty's Fishing Station (516-432-4665):
Tom reports fluking is strictly in the back bays and creeks for both recreational anglers as well as party boats as the ocean seems bereft of fluke. Try Fundy, Swift Creek, Reynolds Channel and the Loop Pkwy areas for good action on mainly short fluke, but all the rental skiffs do come back with at least one keeper per trip so it's not like you don't see any keepers, they are there. Fluking in the ocean is scarce and all due to the presence of sharks every where. A school of threshers was in 20 foot of water off the Pink Hotel feeding on the bunker schools and shark anglers only have to get to 60 to 80 foot of water to start sharking. A few striped bass have been caught at night on clam bellies in both Debs and Jones Inlet, but bluefish have temporarily disappeared, perhaps dissuaded by the presence of thresher sharks and porpoises in only 20 foot of water to 5 miles off the beach. 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. On the web at www.scottysfishingstation.com.

 

Capt. Al (516-623-2248): Capt. Tommy Weiss says this past week was good with ling and porgies both mixing as do some fluke and cod too. They do hook a few sharks every day now with threshers and on Saturday (7/4) a 50 pound mako was chewing through everybody's lines. Friday it was mostly large porgies on board and Saturday mostly ling, but as mentioned they see a few cod and now fluke on the inshore reefs. The 5 p.m. fluke / porgy trips now sail Wed-Sat and they did well this week on the porgies. Sailing every day at 7 a.m. for cod, ling, porgies, fluke etc. AND 5 to 9 p.m. Wed.-Sat. for porgies and fluke from the East Marina in Point Lookout..

 

Fire Island Inlet & Great South Bay:
Fluke reign supreme in the back bays, the State Channel and in both Fire Island and Moriches Inlets with excellent action on mainly short fish. Striped bass fishing is mainly a nocturnal event near the Robert Moses and Smith’s Point Bridges on either bunker chunks or clam bellies. Surfcasters hurling clam strips and bucktails are picking away at both bluefish and fluke from Democrat Point, the Sore Thumb and ocean beaches, with an occasional striper in the mix. Crabbing is slow at most bulkheads and piers, so be patient with the blue claws.

 

Moriches Inlet:
Silly Lily Fishing Station (631-868-0247)
: Gary reports the week leading in to our holiday weekend was very good with lots and lots of fish, fluke and blues. Anglers are catching their fluke limits in the area from buoy 14 to 29, just find a drift where wind and tide are together. Also good fluking in Harts Cove. Lots of fish and many limits this week! Largest was 7.6 pounds for John Emmel and that was caught in Hart’s Cove. Other news has schoolie bass at the Coast Guard Station, Buoy 26 to 29 and the East & West Cuts on clams with larger bass at the inlet on live or chunked bunker. Bluefish also all through the bay under the birds. Blue claws are more consistent in the back creeks and coves. 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:
Fluking has been good with a better keeper ratio in the western part of Shinnecock Bay as well as Shinnecock Canal on squid/spearing or sand eel combos and Gulp, while porgies can be had in the canal and at Roger’s Rock in the Peconics on clam. Bluefish have thinned out, allowing striped bass to migrate from the confines of Ponquogue Bridge to Shinnecock Inlet looking for bunker chunks or clam bellies. 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 them to us at  rich@thefishingline.com.

Montauk
A mix of striped bass and bluefish are on Pollack and Midway Rips, tearing into eels, parachutes and umbrella rigs on the troll. Fluke are scattered on both the north and south side of Montauk in 30 to 65 feet of water taking sand eels while porgies seemingly are velcroed on any given rock pile looking for a slice of clam. Offshore, bluefin tuna, in the 50 to 60 pound range are entranced by splash bars 30 to 45 miles from the beach. 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.
