Point Lookout
Capt. Al (516-623-2248):
Capt. Tommy Weiss says fishing has been very very good with a good mixed bag of giant fluke to 8 pounds, sea bass, porgies, triggerfish and some bluefish. Wednesday as 12 fares picked away at fluke and sea bass all day. Not many porgies this trip but there was a few small bluefish and triggerfish mixed in. It's a shame that the weatherman really screwed up another beautiful summer day, but at least HE still gets paid. Some fares caught their limits of fluke and sea bass with fluke to 6 pounds. The fluke bite was ON Friday! We caught fluke everywhere we went with plenty of keepers and shorts up to 7 pounds. Quite a few fares had their limit of fatties. Some Sea bass and mackerel mixed in as well as a few porgies. At times the drift was very slow and only those casting and bouncing the hooks caught consistently, and when the drift was a little faster everyone caught. We've been finding fish on the sandy bottom, the mussel beds, and on the hard bottom. 40'-80' of water has been best. Saturday (8/25) the fluking was not as fast and furious as it was yesterday but they caught enough and they found new sea bass grounds and the sea bassing was much better. Everybody had limits of sea bass, some mackerel, fluke, porgies, even some small blues too!  Don't forget to bring your gulp bait and bucktails. Bucktails with sea robin or Porgy strips are a hot item for the fatties and gulp baits also working really well. Squid strips are also producing some real nice fluke and bass. We will be sailing every day from 7am till 4pm for SEA BASS, ling, cod, whiting and fluke. No reservations needed just come down there's plenty of room for all.

Peconic Star
(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


James Joseph II
Capt. James Schneider said on Saturday (8/25) the porgy fishing is still just terrific and they are doing it now at 7 am and noon. They switched over to the bluefish for the 4:30 trips and the blues showed up on Friday for a good evening of action and bent rods. 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
