Greenport & Orient
The number one game in town up here is blackfish at Fisher's Island. Some real nice fish on the green crabs and tog 4 to 7 pounds plentiful. Despite our windy, cold weather that enveloped the east coast most of this past week, remain cooperative. The best blackfishing by far is off Fisher’s Island and any rocky area near Montauk. Those anglers trekking to Block Island are finding a few codfish mixed with the tog weighing up to nine pounds.

Huntington to Port Jeff
Blackfish remain cooperative and action good when conditions are right. The best blackfishing off Mt. Sinai in 35 to 40 foot of  water.
Water still in the 50’s and best bet is 40 to 50 foot of water. The numbers of keepers is very good even with the 16 inch it size and still some good sea bass in the mix but they are thinning out. Striper fishing is so so with some fish here and there and some fish coming out of the river around the boat ramp at night as they are feeding on alewives or peanut bunker. Decent fish 24 to 36 inches. Bucktails and Sluggos are working as well. Bass on the east side of Smithtown Bay from the Mansion to Stony Brook Harbor on the troll in 25 foot of water and some  bluefish in the Triangle too.

City Island / Western LI Sound
Despite our windy, cold weather that enveloped the east coast most of this past week, striped bass and blackfish remain cooperative. Blackfishing has been good with most regular spots all having blackfish 3 to 6 pounds. Lots of shorts too. Porgies and sea bass have moved out and most are targeting blackfish now with the Asian and Green crabs. Best blackfishing is from 25 to 40 foot of water so they are spread out over any rocky bottom.
