Rockaway Inlet & NY Bight
Tony from Breezy e mailed us to say bass and big blues hit the back side the last few days around 222nd St right in front of the round house. Friday night there was a good run for a while all on poppers and some guys on bait as well. Good numbers of bass 24 to 30 inches too. Snappers all over the place. Surfcasters are picking up snappers and a few fluke off the Sea Wall and Breezy Point. 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): Tom reported on Thursday afternoon that Deb's Inlet and the back side has seen blues to 12 pounds and bass to 24 inches on poppers each morning at daybreak and sunrise. Look for them just after dark as well. Meanwhile it is the 3rd week of August and as you would expect it's kingfish, some fluke and plenty of weed in the water on some beaches too, more so at the east end of this barrier Island. Fluke and kingfish are best two choices and can be good. If fluking in the surf, use a half ounce white bucktail with a 2 inch white Gulp on the hook and explore the jetties and open beaches as well. A few keepers have been caught and there are more fluke in the surf then there are bass or blues. Lots of kingfish now as we head into August. Use small porgy or kingfish rigs and a couple of chowder clams and use small pieces of bait. Two clams can last a couple of hours when kingfishing.

Fire Island Inlet & Great South Bay:
Gilgo State Park Beach is now OPEN for fishing and driving, this sent to us from Willie Young at the Montauk Surfcasters. Meanwhile Robert Moses Beaches should be getting more sand this fall/winter.
A couple of surfcasters have found success with striped bass on clam at Gilgo Beach during daylight hours, while cocktail blues sporadically feed in the suds. Snappers and blue claws draw landlubbers to local docks and bulkheads, an indication that summer is galloping along. 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:
Monster bluefish to 14 pounds have arrived in Shinnecock  Inlet, hitting virtually any bait day or night. Apparently they have scared most fluke into the bay, near the Ponquogue Bridge where anglers are finding keepers along with many shorts. Striped bass can be had at night on eels at the Ponguogue Bridge. Snappers and porgies are giving landlubbers action in Shinnecock Canal. 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.

Montauk
Willie Young of the MSC reported a few big bluefish on the north side with the northeast winds at Shagwong but they also showed on the sandy beaches from the town beaches back to Hither Hills and Gurneys. Big blues 8 to 13 pounds on plugs and bait. Meanwhile a 46 pound bass was caught on the south side rocks in the dark Friday night/Saturday (8/23) morning on a needlefish plug. Other than this a few scattered fluke on the sandy beaches, some schoolies here or there, but it is August and it is also going to get hot this coming week. 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. Text your report to 516-435-8382 or e mail it tom rich@thefishingline.com.
