North Shore Western Sound
Meanwhile in Orchard Beach Lagoon we have the last few days of flounder season and they have been cooperative. A few porgies are wandered in here so shore anglers are finding a mixed bag of small bass, flounder and now a few select porgies. Bass fishing is better now despite the wind, rain and super moon on Thursday. There is bunker in and around the Whitestone Bridge and bass to 23 pounds and big blues in this area. Use larger Danny swimmers around dawn and dusk or fresh bunker. Also bass where the Hudson meets the East River, anglers are nighttime fishing with fresh bunker and doing quite a few bass to 35 inches. Bass also in Turtle Cove on the chartreuse swim shads. Bloods in the Hudson is still producing stripers too.  

North Shore Middle Sound
Terminal Tackle (631-269-6005): Accompanied by spasms of snow and wind, the blackfish and striped bass seasons officially ended Thursday and Friday with sporadic reports of schoolies in the surf, occasional keepers on the troll and nearly all tog caught too short to keep. Herring fishing, however, is on the upswing at the 69th Street, Coney Island and Magnolia Piers with the fishery slowly moving eastward toward Captree Pier. Except for a couple of party boats targeting ling, sea bass and cod, most boaters are well in to shrink-wrap mode, counting the days until spring fishing puts a real spring into our collective steps. And so as we end the year and the fishing season yearning for more, we would like to thank all the bait and tackle store personnel that provide not only fresh bait, quality tackle and good advice, but the information essential to any accurate report. So thank you to the guys at Bernie’s, Bay Park, Woodcleft Canal, Combs, Gateway, J&J, East End, Star Island and Gone Fishing for your time, patience and friendship. And to all reading this missive, may we wish everyone a joyous holiday season and a happy, healthy 2018!Make sure you ask for your Terminal Tackle catalogue, it's free!

South Shore
Rockaway Inlet
Pretty wild surf action all weekend, in the snow all day and night Saturday and again Sunday (12/10) wild 25 knot west winds. It was cold and the wind chill put it in the low 20’s, but boy were there a lot of fish caught. Some angler’s report almost 40 bass per trip with action on bucktails or teasers fished ahead of any plug. The action seemed to be centered around Deb’s Inlet on either side with action at Silver Point and over at Beech 19th Street on the Rockaway side. Action in the Rockaway's spread all the way to Tilden where it is not stop schoolie action and largest fish we heard of about 24 inches. Monday (12/11) they still had some fish at night but it was much slower as the best catches were around a dozen fish, but therer may have been more or less...only reporting what we have reconfirmed. If you have anything to report text it to 516-435-8382.

 

Point Lookout & Jones Beach
Scotty's Fishing Station (516-432-4665):
Pretty wild weather this week and Dave W. has hit the rocks a few times this week for...nothing. The numerous schoolies here as we predicted with the snow dump earlier this week have moved west in a hurry or deeper. Could be over, but you may pick another few if you have nothing to do this week. Lots and lots of herring at Magnolia Pier! And so as we end the year and the fishing season yearning for more, we would like to thanks Andrew and the staff at Scotty's not only for fresh bait, quality tackle and good advice, but the information essential to any accurate report. And to all reading this missive, may we wish everyone a joyous holiday season and a happy, healthy 2018! On the web at scottysfishingstation.com. 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 

 

Fire Island Inlet
John reported he hammered the stripers at Jones Beach Field 6 on Monday (12/11). He caught 35 bass 12 to 22 inches...as he had non stop action pretty much the entire day on small bucktails and teasers.
