Great Fall Fishing Continues!!!

Posted by Montauk Matt on

This week was filled with reports of bass up to 33" roaming our beaches and inlets. Many regular customers have come in speaking of the great fishing going on along our south shore right now. Both the day and night tides are producing fish. The last of the incoming and first of the outgoing have been been tides to focus on. For daytime fishing try using diamond jigs, kastmasters, poppers and bucktails. (sandeels appear to be showing up.) This provides some great action.

For best success at night you can try using darters, bottle plugs, sp minnows, bucktails and swimshads. If you are in search of larger bass then you should give a
live eel a shot. Those throwing bunker chunks have also had good results when trying to target larger fish. Some boats clam chumming have been doing good numbers on smaller keeper sized fish. Many have been heading to either Moriches or Fire Island inlets in search for “stripes”and have been returning successful. Don’t overlook the bridges either with clam or soft plastic lures.

Boater are trolling and searching for bunker pods. Hugh fish have been taken on the “snag and drop” method. Also, you can capture some humongous blues too. These tackle buster have been reported in the 20b class. Now that’s a monster!!

The local docks continue to see some action with smaller bass. Shads will do the trick.

One customer is specific that had a quality catch from the Moriches surf from the past week was Dave Kobel who beached a 30lb bass on a pencil

Black fishing has been ok. Green crabs seem to do the trick along with clam in those sandy spots. The local south shore reefs have been holding
a lot of fish with a fair amount of “keepers”. A fun way to black fish is using jigs. Just tip it with a peice of crab and send it to the bottom.

Customers are also doing will with sea bass while black fishing. Most are fishing in 80-90 ft of water. Customers are reporting non stop action. Good chance of limiting out.
