Angler Reports

Rockaway Inlet & NY Bight
Same story you’ll read up and down these pages, brutal winds, temps and wind chills and hardly a soul out this week. The party boats can do good numbers of blackfish when they sail but the private guy’s barley left the dock because of conditions. There are herring at the Coney Island and 69th St. Piers, but they have not made it in to the bay yet at Canarsie or the foot bridge. Huge schools of bass under bait in the ocean outside the inlet but no one could get to them unless they had a much larger boat, if so they caught but took the pounding to do it and with very few keepers. If you would like to share your reports whether you caught fish would appreciate them. Text them to 516-435-8382 or E mail them to us at rich@thefishingline.com

Knapp Street & Belt Parkway:
Flamingo 3 (718-2763-8745)
: Capt. Bob reports N/A. They usually do fish on Thanksgiving sailing at 6:30 a.m. as usual and back around 1:30 to 2 p.m. for your turkey dinner. CALL FIRST to find out please as we were not able to reach Capt. Bob over this past weekend or today (11/25). They sail daily 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 and Friday & Saturday nights at 7 p.m. Check out the new and improved web site at www.flamingo3.com.

Capt. Bob and the Flamingo was featured on The Fishing Line TV Show a couple of times for spring flounder fishing and jigging bass on another episode. Bob & RJ scored big time on both shows on giant bass with fish over 25 pounds. You can order the extended 55 minute home release video which is longer than the 30 minute show version by clicking the link

Do yourselves a favor...make sure you visit them this season. They have some awesome action and the Flamingo IS the bluefish boat to hit! New York's topwater, lure & jig specialist for blues, weakfish & bass. The Flamingo III started it over 50 years ago and while others may imitate them, no one can duplicate them. The Flamingo III is a family fishermen's boat catering to all anglers and pride themselves in a keeping a clean and courteous boat with the most experienced crew. The Flamingo III is located at Knapp St. & Belt Parkway and the UA Theater with plenty of free & safe parking.  

Jones & Deb's Inlets
Scotty's Fishing Station (516-432-4665): Tom Doheny reports bass on eels in the inlet at times, but no one really fished this week because of wind. Mark at Bay Park reported the only anglers he saw all week in the wind were commercial blackfishermen and they took a pounding to catch the fish, but they did bite. They jigged a lot of bass and sometimes the numbers of bass caught were incredible and you could fish all day for one keeper if you were lucky. The vast majority of bass were sometimes too small to tag commercially either, as most stripers were running 22 to 25 inches. Saturday (11/22) they had skim ice around the dock and Mark can never remember having ice in November. They will not open on Thanksgiving. 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

 

Capt. Al (516-623-2248): Capt. Tommy Weiss says Saturday (11/22) was poor with lots of short blackfish and a handful of keepers. They had some dogfish and the sea bassing offshore was poor with terrible winds. They fished on Sunday and while bottom fishing was poor again they jigged up a ton of bass and blues in the afternoon and had giant blues 10 to 14 pounds and plenty of bass too. They are in the shipyard doing some maintenance so they will not be sailing for the next week. We'll let you know when they are ready to sail. They most likely will NOT sail the a 5 a.m. trip on Thanksgiving so but you better call first before heading down to the boat. They sail daily full day bottom fishing for porgies sea bass, and blackfish at 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. with free bait from the East Marina in Point Lookout, LI.

 

Fire Island Inlet & Great South Bay:
Bill at Comb’s reported he hasn’t much to report with brutal winds and temps this week, even the draggers had trouble getting out so even bait and clams are hard to come by. The only news he really had was the guy’s sitting on the Cedar Bar west of Fire Island Inlet doling out the clams have some very good action. If you sit for the outgoing tide you can do 60 fish on a party boat and even high numbers on the private boats too. Keeper ratio about 1 in 4 and the large pool fish will be about 36 inches or about 15 pounds. Other than this no one could get to the sea bass or blackfish grounds, the bay waters are in the low to mid 40’s already so the ocean outside the inlets is about the only game in town. With the bad winds this week no one could jig or troll bass or blues either. We’ll have few windows to fish this week, but more wind is expected through Thanksgiving. Comb’s is not expecting to open on Thanksgiving with the 30 knot winds forecast and of course the Holliday. 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

 

Moriches Inlet:
Silly Lily Fishing Station (631-868-0247):
Gary reports there are still bass along the beaches if you can get out to them as wind was brutal again this week. Silly Lily is wrapping it up now and is done for the season as far as bait and tackle and will just be doing the engine repair work on the nicer days. They thank you all for your patronage and support this season and wish you the best of the Thanksgiving holiday. 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:
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
This wind never lets up and the fishing is very slow because of it. Not many reports from here at all with weather and wind seemingly never ending. 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.
