Lots of 1 to 2 pound blues all along the shores up here
and the best of it is at Short Beach east of the River. Fish out front, not
in the river for this fast action on blues and some schoolie bass. This can
pop up any time of the day as well.
Closer to Smithtown all the beaches have porgies at Crab Meadow, Callahan’s
and Mackamah as long as the top half of either tide is in play as long as
the rocks are covered with water.
The unrelenting heat and
humidity this past week has taken its toll on both fish and anglers alike.
Surf action is minimal, with surfcasters choosing to fish at night or early
morning for a mix of kingfish and fluke. Not much to report at all.
Point Lookout & Jones Beach
Very glad to hear Dave W of Valley Stream is back on the beach after almost
being fully recovered from a broken leg. He fished 6 to 7:30 a.m. on
Saturday (8/13) and fished out front in AB and the back side of Silver
Point. He found nothing except one 27 inch bass on a metal lip on the back
side of Silver Point. He said the front was pretty clean in AB but east of
there is a ton of eel grass and dirty water. Other than this things have
been very quiet along this strip except for fluke and kingfish.
Fire Island Inlet|
Nothing has changed except
Surf fishing off ocean beaches has been quiet except for a few schoolie
bass at night, while local docks and piers play host to both snappers
and blue claws.
Surfcasters are finding a few schoolies, big rays, sea robins and sharks
off the ocean beaches and Democrat Point.
It's more nighttime action
for any chance at a bass on clams or chunks.
Moriches & Shinnecock
Bluefish, bluefish and more bluefish is the name of the game.
A few bass gave been picked at by patient surfcasters
along the open beaches and at the Ponquoge Bridge.
Montauk Point / East End Beaches
Tony from Breezy who is in Montauk for a few days. He agreed with Willie Young of the Montauk Surfcasters,
that the main action is cocktail blues on both the north and
south side. Tony had a half dozen Saturday (8/13) morning.
He says Montauk has been slow as you would expect in mid August. There
have been some bluefish on the bars on the north side and if you hit the
rocks at night along the south side you’ll find a fish or two, as they are
always in there snooping around for food under the cover of darkness.
Otherwise it’s all boat action right now in Montauk.
