Don't forget Long Islands "fun fish." Sea robins are plentyful, Blowfish are making a showing and this week we heard of triggerfish in Shinnecock canal. Any bait will do fine. This bottom feeders are fun to catch and fine to eat.
Fluke- the fluke bite continues to heat up, with good fish being pulled from Moriches and Shinnecock bay as well as narrow bay. The best way to target these fish is a simple hi-low rig using either a squid and spearing combo or gulp bait in white, pink or chartreuse which have been producing the most. Bucktails are also a favorite choice of fluke anglers which are available in all sizes and colors. Shinnecock canal has also been holding a good amount of these flat fish.
Bluefish Madness continues around The Smith Point County Park Bay area, as well as both Shinecock Inlet and Moriches inlets have been filled with these aggressive bluefish. The varying sizes of these "yellow eyed" devils range from 4lbs to 15lbs. Popping plugs and tins have been the most successful lures these past weeks for these fish. For my bait fisherman mackerel and bunker are the baits of choice, these fish will only be here for another couple weeks! So don't miss out on this bite ! Striped bass fishing is now starting to improve more and more each day now. Reports are coming...
