RJ's Report: Well this is the
time of year where we start to weed out the fair weather and summer
surfcasters and now more die-hards will be the only ones left on the
beaches. Please; we could all use the extra eyes and reports from all of
you. We have been providing reports free of charge by phone, newsletter and
web services here for nearly all of our 21 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
My name is John T and I've been watching your reports for a while, keep up
the good work.
On Sunday a friend & I fished about 500' east of the
extreme western end of the Tobay lot from 5:45AM until 9AM.
We only got one rat bass each.
We saw one other guy catch one but he also got a fish in the mid 20lb
range. This was all on tins and
bucktails. No fish on teasers. I
heard there was a ton of bunker right in the wash at JB6 on Saturday
afternoon but nothing was caught. I tried RM2, 4 and 5 on Friday night from
9PM until midnight with darters and bottle plugs - nothing. Seems to be that
you have to just be in the right place at the right time!!
Thanks / John Toro
Kings Park west to City Island & Ft Toten
On the beaches they mix in with bluefish. Some nice fish at night and larger
Along the beaches huge blues to teen size and more bass now too and even
more bass during the day with bass to 20 pounds off the beaches. But no way
to know where or when as there is no pattern at all right now. Bucktails,
rubber shad and small swimming plugs are your best bets.
Wild action on bluefish Wednesday with blues 5 to 17 pounds in the surf.
Most of it was from the Cabanas to the BP Jetty. Some caught 20 or more and
some a handful, depending on were you were. Started at 9 and lasted
till 4:30 or so. Thanksgiving morning the action was with bass in among the
frantic bird life from sunrise to 9 a.m. when we spoke with casters on the
beach. Some had three or four bass for their few ours some had none and Dave
W had a 30 incher. It was still sort of going on then too.
Jones & Deb's Inlets
Scotty's Fishing Station (516-432-4665):
Not much happening since last weekend. Dave W says it alas been slow and Jim
from Queens, a regular down here as well, says Wednesday there was not much
going on when he got the call to head west to Breezy which he did and was
successful on the blues.
With abundant schools of shad, peanut bunker and
adult bunker inundating local bays, surfcasters at Robert Moses #2, Democrat
Point, Gilgo and Tobay are having a field day on an outgoing tide hurling
darters and bucktails at night, bunker chunks and clam during daylight to
corral a mix of striped bass and bluefish that range from schoolies to fish
in the 20 pound range. Bluefish, too, range in size from 4 to 14 pounds.
Jay D. reported on
Sunday (11/22) morning at the beginning of incoming tide, big blues were in
at Demo only taking chunks while other reports said Sunday saw very little
at Tobay at all.
Moriches / Shinnecock Inlet:
Bass and bluefishing has been
“unbelievable” from the ocean beaches from Moriches Inlet west to the new
cut on an outgoing tide on rubber shads, bucktails and poppers with bass
ranging from schoolies to 30 pounds. Gorilla blues are along for the ride,
so bring extra terminal tackle and suspend your gym membership for a while.
Most fish seem to be boycotting the Shinnecock area.
