North Shore Middle Sound

South Shore
Rockaway Inlet
I
n the meantime, Tony form Breezy says things are slow there right now and suggested you try the back side of 222 St. and back Side of Breezy as things seem to be slow out front. Lots of birds between the jetty and channel markers and only hauling Hopkins can reach the small bass under these birds. Quality porgies up to 3 pounds will fill your adrenaline rush along the Queens side of the Rockaway Sea Wall, the Floyd Bennett Field area in Jamaica Bay

 

Point Lookout & Jones Beach
Fishing has been picking up after all that wind, weed and dirty large waves last week. On Sunday (11/13) morning Dave W had 8 bass with one keeper at the jetty in AB and Bobby O'Brien had six small bass all 18 to 22 inches in the west end of Long Beach. Bucktails and Hopkins in both cases. Full moon was Sunday night so this week should be gangbusters in the surf.  Lots of birds between the jetty and channel markers at Silver Point and Hopkins was the only thing they took when you could reach them. There has been some weed problems all along AB and Silver Point. Annoying but fishable aalso thick fluke still in the surf, I guess they don't know their season is closed. Text them to 516-435-8382 or e mail Rich@thefishingline.com.

 

Fire Island Inlet
Surfcasters have found that the bass are favoring deeper water; a few schoolies have been picked using poppers, but their numbers are significantly diminished. Bluefish, normally riding shotgun with the bass, are missing in action. 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.

 

 

Moriches & Shinnecock
Striped bass are giving surfcasters along the open beaches action on plugs and grayish-blue lures with a mix of schoolies and “just keepers.” Blowfish and porgies dominate Shinnecock Canal while larger porgies remain ensconced in the Peconics. 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.

Montauk Point / East End Beaches
In Montauk things are in full swing now from the surf with wind and stormy weather every day this past week. On Thursday (10/10) fish were everywhere from the beaches. North side, south side, at the Light and over to Shagwong and the North Bar. Hard NE winds always light up Montauk’s surf and this week were no different. Still lots of smaller fish around but many more keeper size bass now in the surf as they are blitzing everywhere you look from the Light all the way through the town beaches. Many more bass in the 30 pound class too now as things are where they should be this time of year. winds will be NW 10 to 15 so things should flatten out in most areas. In the Amagansett area, The Tackle Shop says big bass and blues were along the sand beaches all week with bass to 30 pounds caught on Tuesday at Napeague state park beach. Meanwhile Main beach in East Hamptons has slowed some, but the coming weeks will only better by the day as the fall run is on! There’s Blackfish on the north side of Gardner’s island and still some squid at the Navy Dock in fort pond at night. Still a few blowfish and snappers but after this blow that should be over. Bluefish still all over the bay and false albacore are showing well north of Gardner’s island at the ruins and the rip with some bigger bass under them! On a side not the Tackle shop is raffling off a surf rod for a charity and a tournament so check with the store for details on both.

In Montauk things are in full swing now from the surf with wind and stormy weather last week and Montauk surf was and is on fire. We’re expecting more W and NW winds this weekend so Montauk surf action could be hurt this weekend but with the fall run in full swing it never hurts to be in Montauk this time of year. The boats are doing well on false albacore, bonito and of course bass and blues and his should not slow down at ball over the next few weeks. 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.
