Listener's Reports:
Rich,
You asked for some reports, so I am sending you one. I appreciate your posts and fishing reports, so I decided to do something back. Fished GSB at RM Field 2 on Friday (5/22).  As many gorilla blues as you could catch on swim shad, Yozuri darters, bucktails or especially A17 or A27s with red tails. People hooked up every few minutes and most fish were 8 to 12 pounds or better. I only caught one on a swim shad (first one ever on that bait). Water: clear, green/blue, cold, end of low tide, beginning of high. Wall to wall sunlight.
Thanks
Carpniels

 

 

North Shore
Terminal Tackle (631-269-6005): John Richey says they sold one dozen sandworms in the last week as there is no activity anywhere and most yards are 4 weeks behind now. The trout fishing in the stocked lakes has been very good. 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. They are running sales on Gibbs, Sluggos and plastics so stop on in. On the web at www.terminaltackleco.com.

 

Rockaway Inlet & NY Bight
In this area the best bet is the bluefishing and they are everywhere. It continues to be spectacular! Bill from the Bronx and his friends hit Beach 222 street and even as far east as Deb's Inlet and Beach 27th for all the bluefish you can handle from 5 to 13 pounds. They are in the back bays, the inlets and along the front facing beaches as well.  No word on bass with the exception of a few caught on pencils in the early morning in Jamaica Bay off Cross Bay Blvd, otherwise it is all bluefish from the inlet all the way through the VZ Bridge. 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 them to 516-435-8382 or E mail them to us atrich@thefishingline.com

Jones & Deb's Inlets
Scotty's Fishing Station (516-432-4665): Bluefish in the back bays still, but on Sunday (5/17) the bass showed up, finally on the back side of Silver Point to the Atlantic Beach Bridge. Dave W. of Valley Steam called at noon Sunday to say he caught five bass in Jamaica Bay early morning, then the tide quite so he hit the last of the outgoing in behind Silver Point and had 11 bass in two hours on bucktails with two keeper size finishing around 11:30 a.m.!
Monday Dave W had 14 bass with one keeper in behind Silver Point again on the morning tide and the same held true on Tuesday (5/19) as he had 11 bass with no keepers. All action on buck tails till the incoming tide brought in too much weed. 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 them to 516-435-8382 or e mail Rich@thefishingline.com.


Fire Island
 Friday (5/22).  As many gorilla blues as you could catch on swim shad, Yozuri darters, bucktails or especially A17 or A27s with red tails. People hooked up every few minutes and most fish were 8 to 12 pounds or better. I only caught one on a swim shad (first one ever on that bait). Water: clear, green/blue, cold, end of low tide, beginning of high. Schoolie bass are taking bunker chunks off Democrat Point for anglers who prefer catch and release fishing. Flounder, too, can be had on clams, worms and mussel off Ocean Beach. 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. Email them to us at rich@thefishingline.com or text 516-435-8382.

Moriches / Shinnecock Inlet:
Shinnecock Canal, meanwhile has become fishing nirvana for landlubbers as sea bass to 17 inches, fluke and striped bass are vying for bunker and spearing in this sheltered enclave. If you catch a fluke of any size, throw it back with instructions to return May 17, the opening of fluke season. 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 them to 516-435-8382 or E mail them to us at rich@thefishingline.com

Montauk
Montauk, alas, is still quiet as its colder water temperatures are inviting only to small cod.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.
