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

Peconic Star II (631- 289-6899): Capt. Dave reports the porgy fishing just continues on being supernatural. One stop, one drop and they go home hours early every day they catch so many 2.5 to 4 pound porgies. They see a few quality weakfish on the boat every day too. It does not get better than this!  The fluke boat had an up and down week from two keepers and some shorts on Friday to a 21 keeper day on Saturday (5/19) with a 10 pounder, several 7 pounders and quality fish all around the boat! Both will sail full days 7:30 to 3 pm with one for fluke and one for porgies! On the web at www.peconicstarboats.com.

Huntington to Port Jeff
Terminal Tackle
John Richey says not much of a change as waters are still cooler than normal, weather sucked latter part of the week right into the weekend. Porgy fishing may be your best bet. They are easier to find and are not moving around as much as the fluke as the flatties are honed in the the roaming schools of squid now. Lots of porgies and big 2 to 3 pounders now all through the bay at Sand City in Huntington and over at Sunken Meadow, Callahan's and the Brickyard just east of the Golf Course too! Be careful through very shallow and rocky in here. Fluking did get a little better and if you find the squid you find fluke with more shorts than keepers right now but some fish to 7 pounds. The best of it from the Platform to the Brush pile as this is where the squid are. Some fluke down east of Cranes as some squid is here too, the fluke are gobbling up the squid but as the squid keep moving so does the fluke. Find squid and you find fluke. No bluefish yet but plenty of schoolie bass in the harbors and in the river with a load of bunker now in Smithtown Bay. Make sure you ask for your Terminal Tackle catalogue, it's free! On the web at www.terminaltackleco.com

James Joseph II (631-680-8159): Capt. James Schneider reported the fluking has gotten better by the day with one or two keepers per person on Monday to 2 to 3 on Tuesday to a boat limit on Thursday with some folks hauling five or six keepers over the rails. All fish are spitting up squid, nice quality fish too to 7 pounds. Full day fluke at 7am and 4:30 evening trips too. Any additional information can be found on the website at www.jamesjosephfishing.com or by calling Capt James at 631-680-8159.


City Island / Western LI Sound
There is not as much bunker in the area as there has been this time of year the last few seasons and we need some bait fish to get the bass going, which is just starting. Anglers can do a few bass by boat in the usual early season spots, Manhasset Bay, Hempstead Harbor, Port Washington and the usual shallower spots. Even around the bridges they are pulling 26 to 39 inch bass, but again it has just started. The surfcasters seem to be doing better in Hempstead Harbor etc. from shore during different tides. 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
