Point Lookout
Capt. Al
Capt. Tommy Weiss says fishing this past week has been super as you would expect, especially days with a light breeze where they can drift. They hammer the sea bass, porgies, ling and this week even had some great fluke catches with fish to 7 pounds. Even the days they have to anchor because of a strong wind, they still fill up buckets of fish for you! Good solid fishing. Great action all day Wednesday (7/11) with sea bass, porgies, fluke and ling. The fluke were picky in the morning but got better as the speed of the drift increased this afternoon. Most of the fluke have been taking sea robin strips and/or bucktails. Green Gulp Bait has been catching everything as usual and now a few mackerel coming up every trip. Another successful outing Thursday as sea bass, porgies, ling and fluke were caught in good numbers. The fluke was off a little due to an extremely slow drift for most of the day but we did manage a handful of keepers and several dozen shorts. Bouncing bucktails and sea robin strips along the bottom works great if you only want to catch big sea bass and fluke. Green Gulp Bait also works well on the larger fish. The weather looks great for the next few days and now that Hurricane Chris is out of the picture the threat of big swells is also gone. We will be sailing every day from 7am till 4pm. from the East Marina in Point Lookout, Long Island at 7 a.m. 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):
he Peconic Star reported on Saturday (7/14) porgy fishing this past week and the weekend just continued to be phenomenal! Nothing else to say as it has been super-duper with an occasional keeper fluke and a few keeper sea bass. Giant porgies and it really can’t get any better! They sail 7:30 to 3 pm for porgies!

James Joseph II
Capt. James Schneider fluking on a half-day schedule has been a pretty, pretty good as they pick away at big fish in the deep now. They will see about 25 keeper fluke per trip no matter how many people may be on the trip. They see most pool winners at 5 to 7 pounds, though Thursday at buoy 15 they had a 10.4 pounder and on Friday (7/13) they had a 12.4 pounder for Chef Nick. Nick lost his wife this past winter to cancer and Capt. James says “I just hope this cheers him up a bit ...I know it’s only a fish but he deserves it!” Most fish have been 4 to 7 pound pool winners but two over 10 in 36 hours?? Wow!! Usually a good mix of 50 keeper sea bass in these deep water catches as well. They are now sailing the 7 a.m. trip for giant porgies and sea bass with the noon and 4:30 trips still fluking. The charters have been hammering away at bass in the mid teen teens to high 20's class fish. Good chunking every day and sometimes three charters per day! Any additional information can be found on the website at www.jamesjosephfishing.com.
