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.
Some schoolie bass and small bluefish are showing up in the suds from Far
Rockaway to Breezy Point on plugs and poppers at first light and sometimes
through sunrise. On the back side of the bay cocktail blues and a few
weakfish all though the J-Bay area along the Sea Wall and into Floyd
Bennett. Porgies too in the bay at the MP Bridge and along the Sea Wall of
Also albies and bonito zipping in and out of the inlets with a few lucky
anglers scoring using deadly dicks and other tins or large poppers with a
leader and small fly tied behind it.
Point Lookout & Jones Beach
Dave W had five bass on
Tuesday with no keepers and have four bass with one keeper on Wednesday
(9/21) morning, otherwise
still a very slow pick all through this area and weed still problem in most
of it this past week. On Saturday (9/24) with a stiff NE wind, we had a
larger than expected surf that was turning brown and no sightings of bait
from anyone we spoke to. Dave W. of Valley Stream had a couple of bass
Saturday morning with one keeper, but very slow going. Jim from Maspeth had
nothing to report either. No mullet, no bait sighting although mid-week
around Wednesday a ton of peanut bunker came down the beaches on the outer
bar and if you reached them with pencils you still found nothing as there
didn’t seem to be any fish on them at all.
Fire Island Inlet|
Surfcasters on the ocean beaches are now finding some schoolie bass and some
cocktail blues on plugs and bucktails early mornings through sunrise. Late
afternoon into evening as well. Looks like things want to pick up, but fish
are still hesitant. Some cooler weather is needed while local docks and
piers play host to both snappers and blue claws.
are finding big rays, sea robins and sharks off the ocean beaches and
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 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.
