Fluke Opens May 17th…Blues Are In!!!…Striper Fishing Is Hot

Posted by Montauk Matt on

The trout action over at west lake has still been holding up well. Several customers have come in and reported that they were able to land several brown
and rainbow trout on kastmaster lures as well as baits like night crawlers and wax worms.

This past week has seen a slight lull in action as far as stripers goes. Maybe due to a lack of effort because of the several windy and rainy days we had.
Despite the conditions though, those who still went of fishing were able to find some luck in the back bays from shinnecock to fire island. Both sides of the tide have been productive but I suggest targeting the outgoing more due to warmer water temps. Bunker chunks still remain the best choice when going after larger fish.
The local docks have seen some fish up to 35" in the last week. Two other excellent spots that are holding fish this time of the year are the Ponquogue and smith point bridge. Soft plastics rigged on a jig head have been absolutely deadly. Come in and ask our expert staff for tips and tricks.

Bluefish have come into our bays and action is improving daily. Some are being picked at the local docks on bunker chunks. Some having also been finding
luck with the blues using topwater lures at smiths point bridge. Cotton Cordell pencils, creek chub poppers and super strike poppers will all work great!
