Fan's Report:

Rich Johnson Report:

Rockaway Inlet & NY Bight
Word from this area is most surfcasters in the winds this week were watching the surfers with very little fishing action going on. Other than this we have porgies along the sea wall opposite Riis Park (porgy area) and some bass back around Beech 120 street along the sea wall that has the mural painted on it. This area is the spring flounder spot and the bass spot in the fall since it it has a rise or a mound within casting desistance. 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. E mail them to us at rich@thefishingline.com or text 516-435-8382

Jones & Deb's Inlets
Scotty's Fishing Station (516-432-4665): Heard from several people that the conditions have been terrible. The surf was huge on Friday (10/17) and Saturday not much better and Thursday the weed was terrible and on some beaches it was almost alive as it would crawl up your line. Some are still picking away at small fish though Jim had two keepers of 28 inches along the Deadman’s stretch in Atlantic Beach using bucktails and fighting the weed the whole way, though not as bad as the oil slick like waves of Thursday where most gave up. 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. E mail them to us at rich@thefishingline.com or text 516-435-8382.

Fire Island
Most of the action is on fresh bunker and mostly all bass with top fish we heard of a little over 49 pounds caught at night. Shops have been weighing quite a few quality bass of 25 to 36 pounds. The bass run on bait is on and although water quality has not been great or calm by any means. Water has been a little dirty as conditions are not great and you need 8 ounces at least to hold bottom and any blues they see are glorified snappers. Action is pretty much spread all along the Robert Moses beaches with one not any better than another. Tobay sees some bass but the better action on larger bass is closer to the inlet with the Sore Thumb and Democrat the betters spots. 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. E mail them to us at rich@thefishingline.com.  

Moriches / Shinnecock Inlet:
There should have been ton of fish in the surf on Friday (10/10) as the day before the gill netters were filling their tags of striped bass (24-34 inches) in just 10 foot of water or less as the day before they were in 30-40 foot of water. A few 50 pounders were released alive as they were only “hung” by the lip latch and an 18 pound pollock in one net and even a four foot sturgeon was landed and released. We anticipate a load of fish in this area on Saturday and Sunday with the NE winds and rain. This could be a gold mine for surfcasters this weekend.

Montauk
Willie Young of the Montauk Surfcasters reported on Saturday (10/18) things had been super right up to Thursday then the dreaded Montauk weekend curse took over and as of Friday afternoon it was very tough going. Some hard wind on Friday but a beauty of a warm day on Saturday. They picked at a very few fish under the bluff on the north side at sunrise on Saturday and after that it was all over. Before Thursday they had them pretty good under the bluffs and on the south side and the sewer area with fish into the mid 20’s. 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.
