Rockaway Inlet & NY Bight
This coming Thursday marks Thanksgiving Day, a day local anglers would give manifold thanks for light winds and moderate temperatures to replace the gusty winds, cold, rain and, in some areas, snow that has enveloped the northeast. Striped bass and blackfish are getting satiated inhaling schools of bunker, sand eels, clams and crabs from Montauk to Sandy Hook. Greater action and larger fish appear decimating sand eels between Fire Island Inlet and Jones Inlet. There, anglers are using white spoons and diamond jigs from the beach to 50 feet of water to catch their saltwater turkey. Bass to 44 pounds were caught off Robert Moses’ Field 2 on diamond jigs, while nocturnal bass are near the Robert Moses Bridge hitting clam bellies and bass assassins. Fewer bass seem to be west of Debs Inlet, but the area between Breezy Point and Coney Island has produced fish for both surfcasters and boaters alike. And, like Montauk, blackfishing is good on area wrecks and Rockaway Reef, but you’ll have to cull through lots of smaller fish to find keepers. 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
This coming Thursday marks Thanksgiving Day, a day local anglers would give manifold thanks for light winds and moderate temperatures to replace the gusty winds, cold, rain and, in some areas, snow that has enveloped the northeast. Striped bass and blackfish are getting satiated inhaling schools of bunker, sand eels, clams and crabs from Montauk to Sandy Hook.  Greater action and larger fish appear decimating sand eels between Fire Island Inlet and Jones Inlet so best bet is go east when leaving Deb's or Jones Inlet. White spoons or diamond jigs in depths as tight as the beach out to 50 feet of water will catch your saltwater turkey. Bass to 44 pounds were caught off Robert Moses’ Field 2 on diamond jigs, while nocturnal bass are being caught on eels at night if you can get out and clam bellies at local bridges. No word on herring yet. Fewer bass seem to be west of Debs Inlet, but the area between Breezy Point and Coney Island has produced fish for both surfcasters and boaters alike. And, like Montauk, blackfishing is good on area wrecks and Rockaway Reef, but you’ll have to cull through lots of smaller fish to find keepers. If you have reports to share text them to 516-435-8382 or e mail Rich@thefishingline.com  

 

Capt. Al (516-623-2248): Capt. Tommy Weiss says they had a good catch, a very good catch on Wednesday with a light crowed with limits of blackfish to 6 pounds. They did not sail Thursday or Friday but did get out on Saturday (11/17). They bit slow in the morning and they waited them out as the life continually came on. They finished with limits for 9 out of 10 people with blackfish to 6.5 pounds. Our full day adventure leaving at 7am and returning around 4pm. As always, we do not take reservations.

Fire Island Inlet / Great South Bay / Moriches

This coming Thursday marks Thanksgiving Day, a day local anglers would give manifold thanks for light winds and moderate temperatures to replace the gusty winds, cold, rain and, in some areas, snow that has enveloped the northeast. Striped bass and blackfish are getting satiated inhaling schools of bunker, sand eels, clams and crabs from Montauk to Sandy Hook.  Greater action and larger fish appear decimating sand eels between Fire Island Inlet and Jones Inlet. There, anglers are using white spoons and diamond jigs from the beach to 50 feet of water to catch their saltwater turkey.

Shinnecock Inlet/Hampton Bays
This coming Thursday marks Thanksgiving Day, a day local anglers would give manifold thanks for light winds and moderate temperatures to replace the gusty winds, cold, rain and, in some areas, snow that has enveloped the northeast. Striped bass and blackfish are getting satiated inhaling schools of bunker, sand eels, clams and crabs from Montauk to Sandy Hook. On the East End, black fishing has been phenomenal with fish to nine pounds at the Point, Outer Shagwong, Fisher’s Island and Block Island taking both white and green crabs. A smattering of porgies, sea bass and codfish complete a nice mixed bag. Adult stripers have departed Montauk, but schoolies remain to entertain anyone interested in catch and release angling from the surf and on the troll. Moving here into the Shinny area, the same striper action, schoolies on the beach and on the troll with an occasional twenty pounder mixed in continues until far greater action and larger fish appear decimating sand eels between Fire Island Inlet and Jones Inlet. 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
