Rockaway Inlet & NY Bight
With the fluke season closing later today, anglers are finding summer flounder on the edges of Ambrose Channel more than willing to feast on squid/spearing combos and Gulp. A high percentage of these fluke are keepers, music to the ears of anglers catching wannabees all summer. Although striped bass are waiting for our waters to cool, an aquarium awaits in the bay as weakfish, cocktail blues, porgies, small sea bass and sea robins compete for a worm or slice of clam dangling from anglers’ hooks. Even false albacore are occasionally jetting across the bay and into the inlet and jetting back again to drive boaters crazy. Landlubbers are dealing with a bumper crop of snappers, while blue claws are thinning out. Let’s hope that Jose makes tracks for the mid- Atlantic so that we can enjoy good fishing.

. 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.

 

Jones & Deb's Inlets
Scotty's Fishing Station (516-432-4665):
Andrew at Scotty’s says When the winds relent, boaters have found keeper fluke on the Cholera Banks and in 50 feet of water near the tankers. On windy days, the bays and creeks are providing action with short fluke, small sea bass and sea robins combined with a growing population of cocktail blues satiating themselves at the top of the tide. Striped bass remain A.W.O.L., awaiting cooler water temperatures. Landlubbers are having fun with snappers and blue claws off local docks and bulkheads, while enjoying September’s beautiful weather.

Capt. Al (516-623-2248): Capt. Tommy Weiss says fishing was excellent this week with more fluke than anything else. You can catch 50 per man so by day‘s end you have a couple of keeper fluke, some sea bass, some triggerfish and porgies. Great action and plenty of fish to take home. Sailing full day for sea bass, fluke, ling and whatever else bites at 7 a.m. every day from the East Marina in Point Lookout

  

 

Fire Island Inlet / Great South Bay / Moriches:
A mix of schoolie bass and 2 to 5 pound bluefish are keeping surfcasters fishing the suds off ocean beaches happy as they connect with clams and small buck tails. The ocean, however, has been “nasty” as rollers spawned by the remnants of Irma has made leaving both Fire Island and Moriches Inlets difficult. Inside the bay, a mix of cocktail blues, short fluke, sea robins and small sea bass have been joined by false albacore to produce excitement and action. One noteworthy catch: a 7.8 pound fluke was weighed in by an anonymous angler, taken near the Coast Guard Station on a squid/spearing combo. Docks and piers are providing the venue for both snappers and blue claws as the end of summer draws near. 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.

Shinnecock Inlet/Hampton Bays
Shinnecock Inlet is the place to be if fleeing fluke and aggressive bluefish are what you seek. Shinnecock Bay seems inundated with sea robins, while snappers rule the roost in Shinnecock Canal. Porgies can found at Rogers Rock in the Peconics, while a few schoolie bass are responding to clam bellies/clam chum at the Ponquogue Bridge at night. 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.
 

Montauk
In the waning days of the fluke season, fluking is phenomenal in 60 feet of water off the Radar Dome, Midway and Frisbees with fish to ten pounds commonplace. A mix of striped bass and bluefish are inhabiting Southwest Ledge off Block Island, while bottom fishing for porgies and sea bass remains fantastic. 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.
