Many anglers fishing  from Ocean Beach, Peconic Bays and Great South Bay have all produced weakfish.  Striped Bass catches have been reported from south shore inlets and back bays . North Shore anglers have also produced some quality fish too.  Bass are ranging from "schoolies" to "chunky" fish in the 20lb Plus range. And, Fluke fishing has produced quality catches from Moriches and Fire Island inlets as well as the eastern shore of Peconic Bays.

Regulation update

As some of you may have heard, there is talk of a new emergency striped bass slot size regulation of 28-31 inches that is poised to go in to effect. BUT NOT YET!!!

As of right now this is only a "dictate" from the Atlantic State Marine fishery Commission (ASMFC).

The current regulation of 28-35" slot size stays in effect until New York state approves this rule from the ASMFC. Currently NYS has until July 2nd to ratify this proposal.

However, until a decision is finalized by the NYS DEC the current slot of 28-35 inches will remain in place.
