Your Reports

North Shore
Terminal Tackle (631-269-6005): 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.

South Shore
Rockaway Inlet
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 the Rockaway's. 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. Surfcasters are finding 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

Spoke 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.
