Entering into the month of June we have already seen several good sized striped bass taken around the island from surf to boat. Most boat fishermen have been finding luck drifting the inlet with clams or bunker.    

Also Good sized schools have seemed to have taken hold in the long island sound feeding on bunker. If you can snag a live bunker that just may be your ticket to landing a trophy sized fish.
Those who have been venturing out into the surf can find luck either fishing the jettys with bucktails and trailers or a bunker sized swimshad as well as plugging the backbay shorelines with plugs like sp minnows, redfins, bombers and mag darters. The addition of a teaser can also help improve your hookups.

Massive schools of bluefish continue to hold in our waters. The blues having been feeding hard most days. The most exciting and fun way to target these fish would have to be topwater lures suck as super strike, atom and creek chub poppers. Cotton Cordell pencil poppers also work very well. Don't rule out the use of tins too. Charlie Graves tins as well as diamond jigs cast like a rocket and cut through the wind very well to reach the fish on windy days. Bunker and Mackerel chunks have also been working very well and sometimes can cull a bigger bluefish.

Fluke fishing still seems to be doing alright. All the bays have decent number in them. The place to target bigger fluke right now would have to be the north shore though. A straight fluke rig with squid and spearing works great. Using a bucktail with a teaser can also produce excellent results 

Porgy fishing has continued to be outstanding. Double headers are not uncommon at all. Using sandworms and clams are both seeing great results. Some porgies are topping the 4 pound mark also. 

The local lake continue to provide some action for the people fishing it. The sunnies and bluegills are willingly taking nightcrawlers as well as small jigs. Largemouth bass season will open up this Saturday 6/5. We typically have live shiners in stock but they can sell out quickly. Please call ahead of time for those.
