A picture is worth a thousand words…..
Tuesday and Wednsday afternoon fish were all over central south shore beaches. bucktails and Kastmasters, tins worked the best. Loads of fish were taken from the surf!!!
All ranged from 14 inches to 25 pounds. As long as you had no weed on your line you most likely had a fish on. Most of the fish were bass but there was a few blues in the mix too.
Striper Fishing is Incredible:
This week had absolutley amazing action from the surf. Huge bodies of fish were spread from Moriches Inlet, to Old Inlet. The fish were chasing adult bunker as well as peanut bunker. Most days the action has been lasting all day. In some instances, all-out blitz type fishing occurred . Lures such as kastmasters, Bucktails, Poppers, Rubber Shads, Darters and Swimming Plugs have all accounting for many fish being caught. Most fish are just under legal size (28") with plenty of keepers mixed in as well as the occasinal fish over 25lbs. Get out any time you can, there's no rhyme or reason behind when these fish have been showing up. If you happen to be down at the shore at the correct time, you can assure yourself that you will have a exceptional day of fishing. The rod will be bent all day long. Nothing like it. " If you can keep the bucktail clean then you will hook up"
Those who have choose to bottomfish have also been having themselves luck with blackfish. The usually southshore wreaks as well as the north shore rock piles are all holding decent amounts of blackfish. Jigs as well as green crabs are both working well. The key is to make sure your bait is in the bottom at all times.
To add to the incredable fall, have you tried "squiding" (squid fishing) on the north shore.
Port Jefferson and Northport have been two productive areas.
