Rockaway Inlet & NY Bight
The excessive heat and humidity of the last week has taken its toll on the number of anglers venturing out to catch dinner. But those who did found porgies and fluke willing and able to provide excitement and tasty fillets. Porgies are still running all over the bay, from the Rockaway Sea Wall, to the Marine Pkwy Bridge and out to the Tin Can Grounds where a slice of clam, squid or sandworm can work wonders. Fluke are co-habiting with the porgies in the bay and on the Coney Island Flats looking for a squid/spearing combo to make their happy meal. Striped bass are strictly biting at night and can be had in the inlet and ocean by drifting a live eel. Local docks are home to small snappers and blue claws. One cautionary note to all anglers: in this excessive heat, make sure to wear a hat, use sunscreen every two hours and constantly hydrate with H2O. 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 the summer doldrums have hit his area big time for keeper fluke as the 19 inch standard is tough to reach. The good news is that there is plenty of action from small fluke and sea robins on squid/spearing combos and Gulp. The reefs are producing both sea bass and porgies but, again, you’ll have to cull through many shorts. A few striped bass have been picked at night at the Atlantic Beach, Meadowbrook and Wantagh Bridges on clam/clam chum, but most of these fish are schoolies. Local docks and bulkheads are seeing small snappers and blue claws, but the bigger guys should be showing up next month. Offshore they have bluefin at the Coimbra and its feast or famine out there but when it’s good it is superb and fish 40 to many, many 100 pounders with lots of yellowfin. Jason and John Auster on their boat had a 390 pound thresher last Sunday from 30 due south of Jones. On the web at scottysfishingstation.com.

Capt. Al (516-623-2248): Capt. Tommy Weiss says it was another very good week with lots of sea bass over 3 pounds and approaching 4 pounds. They have been able to do some drifting which yields more and more fluke every day with fluke to 5 pounds or so. When a fluke like that is caught it will usually win the pool. They see triggerfish now and they get a good shot at the porgies every morning too. Friday (7/14) it blew east, but they sailed with 5 people who had limits of sea bass, fluke to 5 pounds, good porgy action and triggerfish. Saturday they had a full boat and fish was off to a great start with porgies, sea bass and fluke on the local reefs. The weather looks great for the next few days and we are sailing every day from 7AM till 4PM. As always, we don't take reservations, first come first serve. 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:
Fire Island and Moriches Inlets are home to a mix of short and keeper fluke with one angler weighing in a 9 pound summer flattie. Squid/spearing combos, Gulp and bucktails are working to entice these fish on the turn of the tide. Striped bass, too, are plying the inlets but only after sundown looking for a drifted clam belly or live eel. Sea bass and porgies are making Fire Island Reef home for the summer, but the keeper ratio is 15 to 1. Local docks are playing host to landlubbers searching for blue claws and small snappers. 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
Landlubbers are enjoying a variety pack of fishing in Shinnecock Canal as a combination of porgies, fluke and triggerfish swarm through. The bay is loaded with fluke looking or a squid/spearing combo with the best fishing at the change of the tide. Shinnecock Inlet has a mix of triggerfish and fluke, but striped bass are A.W.O.L. Shinnecock Reef has a mix of porgies and sea bass, but the keeper ratio is 15 to 1. 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.

Montauk
“Everything is here!” on local resident exclaimed as striped bass to 52 pounds are gorging themselves on live spot and eels at the Point, all the local rips and the Elbow. Similarly, fluke to 12 pounds are hitting hard at Cartwright and Frisbees make limiting out commonplace. Excellent sea bass and porgy fishing on a moving tide wherever two rocks meet spells success. Even tuna fishing came alive late in the week at Butterfish Hole. Kenny & Rich Geyer were in Montauk with their boat this past week catching bass to 35 pounds by day along with fluke to 6 pounds and lots of quality jumbo sea bass. 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.
