Editor's Note: We have been providing reports free of charge by phone, newsletter and web services here for nearly all of our 22 years on The Fishing Line. So please if you have anything you can share with us, even if it’s just the conditions where you fished sucked and that would save anglers from making a long drive to a particular beach it is all helpful. Thanks and text reports to 516-435-8382 or e mail Rich@thefishingline.com. 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.

Rockaway Inlet & NY Bight
Hot, humid weather has taken its toll on both fish and fishermen as many anglers have opted for the comfort of air conditioning and fish have, too as they have moved to deeper, cooler waters. The bays are alive with blue claws, snappers, cocktail blues, kingfish, sea robins and mainly short fluke to provide action galore. Many more keeper fluke are residing on the edges of Ambrose Channel looking for a squid/spearing combo or Gulp. Small porgies cover the area of the Marine Pkwy Bridge and local reefs and, if you put the time in, some keepers will swim your way along with sea bass. Striped bass and bluefish are in virtual hibernation, but moderating temperatures forecast for next week might change the piscatorial mix. 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):
Great fluke action in the back bays and inlets, but few keepers among them is motivating some anglers to trek to the Angler or Cholera Banks to find quality fish. The bays are loaded with sea robins and small sea bass, too, to keep you busy. Use live snappers now for a shot at doormats inside the bay and in the inlets! The offshore bite in the Hudson Canyon is red hot for bigeye tuna and white marlin on the east wall of 100 Square, while landlubbers continue to pick away at snappers and blue claws from 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.

Capt. Al (516-623-2248): Capt. Tommy Weiss says Friday they slaughtered the sea bass and fluke. Rich Johnson was at the dock to confirm this as they had three fluke over 7 pounds and quite a few other keepers and limits of sea bass for everybody. Saturday was the same with a 50/50 mix of sea bass and fluke with a few porgies. Fluke is winning the pool on a daily basis now. Sunday was no good, windy they had to anchor and could not drift. Mostly all sea bass with a few fluke, but good over all as they put a catch together but the end of the day. Monday was no good as it was blowing 25 from the NW and could not drift. A few fluke but mostly all sea bass and no porgies. Tuesday (8/23) was much better where they could drift all day and they had porgies in the morning, limits of sea bass for all but the fluke did not bite. They are trying to get the word out again the porgies and sea bass are ready to bite at 5:30 every evening! 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:
Cocktail blues and fluke provide plenty of action throughout Great South Bay with an occasional keeper in the mix. Anthony Cosentino weighed in a 9 pound fluke caught in Moriches Bay on a bucktail tipped with Gulp to make his day, month and season, while a few weakfish were a surprise catch for a couple of anglers off Ocean Beach. Surfcasters are finding a few schoolies, big rays, sea robins and sharks off the ocean beaches and Democrat Point, but diehard fluke fans are traveling to 70 feet in order to put a couple of fillets on the grill. Local docks are finding kids of all ages catching snappers and blue claws and, with the beginning of the school year looming, inhaling every joyous moment. 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 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, triggerfish now on the rock pile and blue claws are in the coves.

Shinnecock Inlet/Hampton Bays:
Fluke dominate the local scene in the bay and in 80 feet of water south of Shinnecock Inlet with larger fish outside. Plenty of sea robins, a few triggerfish and small sea bass inside, while deeper ocean depths are providing keeper sea bass for decent mixed bag catches. Shinnecock Canal features snappers and small sea bass with porgies at the north end, while the Ponquogue Bridge holds a few schoolies and snappers. 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
As usual, Montauk leads the way with piscatorial variety as striped bass and bluefish cavort off the Point, the Elbow and Great Eastern looking for spot, eels, or a live porgy with fish to 30 pounds. Fluking has been excellent off Gurney’s, Cartwright and Frisbees in 50 to 60 feet of water with a good ratio of keepers being netted. Sea bass and porgies are still ubiquitous wherever two pebbles come together, while the offshore bite for dolphin, white marlin and yellowfin tuna goes on 30 to 50 miles south of Montauk. 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.
