Rockaway Inlet & NY Bight
Rain, wind, overcast skies and fog created the conditions for a lackluster week as most anglers sought shelter instead of terminal tackle. But for those intrepid anglers who donned foul weather gear and a thermos of coffee, their efforts were rewarded by striped bass off Breezy Point in the suds, in back of Jamaica Bay near JFK and off the Marine Pkwy Bridge where a mix of schoolies and “just keepers” inhaled bunker chunks, clam and bucktails. No lunkers have shown up yet, but there is action. Fluking, too, has been spotty; try different drifts in diverse areas from Jamaica Bay to the VZ Bridge using squid/spearing combos or pink Gulp to find a mix of shorts and keepers. Sea robins now abound in the bay with an occasional “lost” weakfish caught on a fluke hook. Bluefish sporadically show up in the ocean, but haven’t shown up inside the bay. 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):
A mix of schoolie and keeper bass have shown up at the Meadowbrook, Wantagh and Atlantic Beach Bridges taking clam/clam chum and bucktails on both tides. Small bluefish are in the bay busily getting impaled by fluke rigs along with loads of sea robins. Fluking has been decent in Reynolds Channel where a few keepers were caught near the Lindell St. School on squid/spearing combos and Spro rigs. Bluefish sporadically blitz the inlets; fishing off the Jones Beach Jetty, Marc Brody caught a 17 pound gorilla and carefully released the chopper to live another day.

Capt. Al (516-623-2248): Capt. Tommy Weiss says they sailed Tuesday through Thursday, did not sail on Friday or Saturday (5/19) because of weather. The action gets better every day and now high hooks are in the mid to high 20’s of ling. They see a cod each day win the pool but some large 4 to 5 pound ling in the catches. Other high hooks were 15 and 17 fish and everybody has plenty of fish to go home with for dinner. No porgies yet and some large sea bass are caught that have to be thrown back because of the terrible NY fishery laws. Sailing EVERY day now at 7 a.m. for ling, cod, whiting fluke from the East Marina in Point Lookout, Long Island.


Fire Island Inlet / Great South Bay / Moriches:

Striped bass and bluefish are all over Fire Island and Moriches Inlets, Democrat Point, the Sore Thumb and off Smith’s Point with most bass in the 26 to 30 inch range taking bunker chunks, clam, poppers and bucktails. An occasional weakfish shows up near Kismet and Ocean Beach with fish to 6 pounds: a serendipitous surprise for a fluke angler. Fluke action in the bay and State Channel has been slow with many more shorts than keepers, but sea robins hitting squid/spearing baits keep anglers alert and at the ready. If 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.

Shinnecock Inlet/Hampton Bays
Gorilla bluefish have joined striped bass in both Shinnecock Inlet and in the bay inhaling bunker chunks and clam/clam chum both on the troll and anchored near the Ponquogue Bridge. Shinnecock Canal features fluke, striped bass and big blues, so don’t leave your rod unsecured and bring extra terminal tackle. Porgy fans are heading to the Peconics near Jessups for scup in the 3 to 4 pound range. Still some large weakfish plying both Quogue and Shinnecock Canal taking rubber baits, with the better fishing at night. Fluke anglers are running to Greenlawns and Shelter Island to find a mix of shorts and keepers on squid/spearing combos. 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
Fluking is really taking off on the south side near Frisbees with a number of anglers limiting out with fish to 8 pounds. The old standby, squid/spearing combos, is working to entice the summer flounder. Porgies to 4 pounds, platter-size, have been chewing on clam strips near Shelter Island, while striped bass and bluefish show up sporadically near Ditch Plains. A few consecutive sunny days should galvanize these Montauk stalwarts into a feeding frenzy. 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.
