RJ's Report: Please; we could all use the extra eyes and reports from all of you. We have been providing reports free of charge by phone, newsletter and web services here for nearly all of our 21 years on The Fishing Line. So please if you have anything you can share with us, even if it’s just the conditions where you fished sucked and that would save anglers from making a long drive to a particular beach it is all helpful. Thanks and text reports to 516-435-8382 or e mail


Fan's Report:


North Shore:  Kings Park west to City Island & Ft Toten
Terminal Tackle (631-269-6005):
John Richey reported the incredible amount of herring has not changed and the best John has seen ever! Better than the late 80's and early 90's! They are best in Centerport, Huntington Harbor off the town bulkheads. They are in the river on the incoming tide right near the ramp there at Kings Park. Port Jeff, Mt, Sinai, Stony Brook has them and to the west in Cold Spring Harbor. Still a few squid in Huntington Harbor too. They will be open Christmas Eve day and New Year's Eve day from 9 to a.m. to 3 p.m. They will close both Christmas and New Year's Day. On the web at

Rockaway Inlet
Now it is still fantastic herring this season. The Coney Island and Canarsie piers are loaded with herring and some anglers reporting 150 per trip. Herring also in spots along the sea wall in the Rockaways.

Jones & Deb's Inlets

Fire Island

Moriches / Shinnecock Inlet:

I want to thank Willie Young of the Montauk Surfcasters Assoc. for being so generous in his fishing reports to us this past seasons. Willie and his organization are just wonderful and if you don't know who he or they are look them up on the web.
