North Shore Western Sound
 

North Shore Middle Sound
Terminal Tackle (631-269-6005): John Richey says  plenty of porgies now at the Sunken Meadow area on the top of the tide. Big spawners in here and fish to 3 pounds on worms and clams. They see a bunch of schoolies now in this area and along the shores of the river. Make sure you ask for your Terminal Tackle catalogue, it's free On the web at www.terminaltackleco.com.  

South Shore
Rockaway Inlet
A mix of schoolie bass, small bluefish and fluke have been pulled from the suds at Fort Tilden and Breezy Point, but no great numbers or concentration seems apparent. And the fish of the week: a 100 pound black drum caught on the Coney Island Flats that was released. If you have anything to report text it to 516-435-8382.

 

Point Lookout & Jones Beach
Dave W of Valley Stream says out front and the Silver Point area along Dead Man’s stretch was actually brown on Friday but weed free. He gave it a shot on the early morning shift and was rewarded with one 20 pound bass on the outer bar using a popper. He also saw one other fish in the same class caught near him. Saturday (6/16) he had two small 22 inch stripers on the poppers tight to the beach along the “lip of the beach.” Other than this it was been weedy and slow fishing. Editor’s Tip: Pencil poppers off the tip of the jetties the middle two weeks of June is usually a sure bet for larger stripers as they are funneling out of the Jamaica Bay area and heading east in the ocean. Should also be plenty of fluke in the surf now too. 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
Two to 3 pound bluefish are all over from the docks to the inlet and into the ocean producing great action on tins and bunker chunks, thwarting many a bass angler whose bait is quickly consumed. Although surfcasters nailed a few bass at night from Democrat Point, most bass anglers are trekking west to the Rockaways where fish to 30 pounds have been weighed in. Surfcasters at the Sore Thumb, Democrat Point and the ocean beaches are catching bluefish on bucktails, poppers and bunker chunks, leaving the slower striped bass little to feed on. Other surfcasters are finding both fluke and weakfish off Democrat Point and the Sore Thumb inhaling sandworms and 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

 

 

Moriches & Shinnecock
Shinnecock Inlet is also playing host to a mix of striped bass and bluefish taken on bunker chunks, pencil poppers and tin. A variety pack of fishing awaits the eager angler as Shinnecock Inlet features a mix of striped bass and bluefish on poppers and tins. Surfcasters are finding both species on the open beaches with the better fishing at night. The inlet rocks have yielded blues and bass on bucktails now too. Shinnecock Canal features fluke, striped bass and big blues, so don’t leave your rod unsecured and bring extra terminal tackle. 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 Point / East End Beaches
Willie Young says the usual mid to late May bite is on with some smaller fish and just keeper size along the open sandy beaches on bucktails, tins and poppers. Ditch Plains is always the place to start and you work east from there. The end of May is always the time of year when BIG fish show up unannounced. You have to put in your time and again it's the south side from Ditch Plain, beaches in town and east to the rocky south side with 30 to 40 pounders due to show any day if they haven't already! 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.
