The Fishing Line TV Show On The MagRack 24/7 On All Systems

With great sadness we heard of the passing of Willie Young this evening around 6 p.m. Willie was a great beach access advocate, president of the Montauk Surfcasters for decades and a friend of The Fishing Line. Willie succumbed to a heart attack late this afternoon (10/30). Willie was a regular on The Fishing Line radio show, supplied our Montauk Point surf fishing reports for 24 years and a did a great two part series with us on fishing Montauk Point for our television series. Our condolences to his family and the entire surf fishing community.

South Shore
Rockaway Inlet
A few junior size stripers still caught from time to time along these open beaches but the fat lady has probably sung already for 2018. Herring action is getting strong at the 69th St & Canarsie piers, but the 5-year-old 58th St. Pier has super herring right now. No bass action on the ocean front beaches but good bass action at night still around the VZ Bridge, all at night on baits with still some bass to 20 pounds being caught. Lots of schoolie at Manhattan Beach on the "Rail" side and good schoolie action at Caesar's Bay on shads and bait and herring all along here 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

 

Point Lookout & Jones Beach
I think we are going to wrap up this area for the 2018 season. It was a terrible fall, one of the worst ever we, and other anglers can remember. However all through this area we have seen a steady decline in the surf action since Sandy in 2012. Every year we say this is the worst and the following year turns out to be even worse than the year before we thought was the worst. Just very disheartening. Two anglers we spoke to fish on Thursday (12/6) and one has two tiny fish and the other none for 4 hours of fishing.
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
They are still diamond jigging mostly small bass off Fire Island by boats, so there are a few junior size bass being caught from these beaches from time to time.
A few junior size stripers still caught from time to time along these beaches but the fat lady has probably sung already for 2018. Not the greatest season for this area but a few folks had a few good innings. It is very close, if not already to being over though. 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.
