Albies continue at the south shore inlets. Best action on the incoming tides that has let to some good fishing. The hot lures of the week have been Shimano Coltsniper jigs Deadly Dicks,  Joe Baggs Resin Jigs,. 

Officially fall has began. The days have been fairly warm but the nights have been chilly. Bait is starting to move and  Stripers are feeding on them. The past days it has been tough for most boats to get out due to high winds but many surf fishermen have found a way to get into some fish. We have heard of some fish being taken into the 30 pound class.  Most being caught are anywhere from 25" to 36".   Anglers have been sucessful from the sand beach using sp minnows, bombers, darters, bottle plugs and needlefish as well as the inlets by using bucktails tipped with either a fat cow strip or a curly tail.  Rubber shads such as tsunami and al gags lures have also produced.

Sea Bass have been steady when conditions make it favorable to get outside to the Artificial Reefs and wrecks. With Blackfish set to open on 10/15 a Sea Bass/Blackfish trip should make for a lot of tasty fillets for your freezer, check out the recipe section on our website.

porgies down at the inlet. They have mainly been taking squid and clam. These are some of the largest ones ive seen the whole year. The North Shore is still loaded with them also. A little bit smaller but many around. They have been less picky, taking clam, sandworms and squid.

Weakfish are not out of the question this time of year as well, they can be caught with squid strips, clam and artificial’s such as bass assassins and gulp baits

Bluefish have seen a fair action but you can still be picked up to 10 pounder in the south shore inlets. Most fish are being caught on bucktails and tins. It seems that the best time to go would be a few hours before dark, although some can be picked after dark as well.  It's the #1 fishing rule applies.

Fluke fishing ended well this year. Both shinnecock and moriches had steady action up until the last day of the season. We noticed toward the end of the season an increase in the number of keepers taken which was good.

Snapper fishing anyone???  Considering that we're heading into October, the snapper fishing is  turning into "cocktail bluefish" fishing.  They're getting big and fighting hard.  They're good eating too at this size.  Spearing, lures all will catch the limit.  Day time is best with a moving tides.

Freshwater fishing has been good within the past week or so according to our customers. Live shinners have been doing the damage. Some who have been using the live shiners have been coming in saying they are getting hit almost every cast with one. This is excelent action for freshwater. We will be carrying live shiners the rest of the fall into the winter if you need them.

Reminder the fall Blackfish season opens on October 11th for the north shore and the 15th for the south shore.  The shop will be fully stocked with Blackfish Jigs, Rigs, Hooks and Green Crabs.
