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
Bluefish to 7 pounds have been caught by landlubbers from Canarsie Pier, Floyd Bennett Field and even Emmons Avenue in Sheepshead Bay. A decent night bite worming striped bass has developed off Rockaway Jetty with one fish weighed in at 48 pounds.


Point Lookout & Jones Beach
Spoke to several anglers on Friday (6/17) who all said it was an up and down week with mostly just a slow pick and not too many people seen on the beach. Most surfcasters seem to be working the Rockaway side from Beach 19th into the Deb's Inlet. This area has given up quite a few good innings on the bluefish of cocktail size and a bass or two. Dave W had about 5 bass for the week on the bucktails with two keepers to 32 inches. He has heard of quite a few bluefish and then the porpoise move in each morning. It happened again in Debs Friday morning where the Rockaway side had a ton of bluefish action, the porpoise moved in to massacre the bluefish, they ran straight to Dave at Silver Point where he caught quite a few blues before the porpoise chased them out the inlet. The guys out front using clams are picking at some fish with a keeper here or there.

Fire Island Inlet|

Landlubbers have been enjoying the blowfish action off local docks and piers, but blue claws have yet to arrive. Bluefish have thinned out some but still seem to be the main players right now with 1 to 10 pound bluefish and larger. While farther east, try the Smith’s Point Bridge area for a mix of bass and blues.


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

A few bass gave been picked at by patient surfcasters along the open beaches. Very slow but fish are filtering in now.
