Long Island Sound Reports On Radio Show
John Richy of Terminal Tackle joins Rich Johnson weekly, live on The Fishing Line Radio Show
Saturday afternoons at 4 p.m. on WGBB 1240AM radio to give current and live updated reports for the LI Sound Region


 These will be the last reports for 2 weeks as I go on vacation and anticipate doing Hurricane clean up at home. The Phone reports will be updated instead so check those.

Peconic Star II (631- 289-6899): The Peconic Star reported still tons of porgies as they have LOADS of porgies being caught and easy limits for everybody! They see more and more large triggerfish every trip now along with some large fluke to  5 pounds and large sea bass to almost 5 pounds. A VERY good week of fishing! Not much else to say. The fishing has been awesome just all week! They sail 7:30 to 3 pm for porgies! On the web at www.peconicstarboats.com. .

Huntington to Port Jeff
Terminal Tackle
John Richey says more bluefish showed up, small 1 to 2 pounders and Lloyd Harbor was full of them earlier in the week. Lots of vids on FB now of large schools of these small snappers everywhere in the Sound. Fluking is pretty much done or no one is even trying now...it's porgies and more porgies. However lots of snappers around so that may get you going for some large fluke. Diamond Point is a good August fluke spot too. Porgies are still everywhere and have moved in to the bays now. We heard some 1 pound or better porgies now in the harbor and Northport Harbor especially. Stripers are in the river at night is slow and river water temps 80 degrees! Make sure you ask for your Terminal Tackle catalogue, it's free! On the web at www.terminaltackleco.com

James Joseph II (
: Capt. James Schneider said on Thursday (8/23) the porgy fishing is getting better and they had 1800 porgies on the 7 a.m. trip. They were picking at fluke on the noon trip and the 4:30 trip is the last fluke trip of off the year. Starting tomorrow (8/24) they are porgy fishing at 7 a.m. and noon and blues and bass at 4:30. The tides are perfect this weekend and next week for the blues & bass at 4:30 so get on board, but right now porgy action can't get nay better. They are now sailing the 7 a.m. & noon for porgies and 4:30 jigging blues and bass. Any additional information can be found on the website at www.jamesjosephfishing.com.   



City Island / Western LI Sound
Reports still have everything and everybody relying on porgies right now. NO blues to speak of anywhere except the large snappers and porgies have nothing to fear. They are everywhere and anywhere...all the way to the Maritime College, Throgs Neck Bridge... they are literally everywhere. Otherwise no fluke, no blues an not even any bass caught at night.! Very strange season thus far. Just terrible in the western Sound this season. Text them to 516-435-8382 or e mail Rich@thefishingline.com

Know where they are...not where they were...
