Matts Fishing Forecast.....THE BLUEFISH ARE IN!!! ..... Porgy Time

Posted by Matt Broderick on

Local fishermen ventured out this past week to find some rather promising results. On the inlets, big gator size bluefish are hitting the rocks. With that better size bass are following those schools in to the bays. Other fishermen staying away from the inlets durning holiday weekend found luck in the back bays on top water plugs with striped bass. Some are also hitting on small swimming shads, but all fish are fat with bunker. So if you want to fish bait fresh chunks are a good go too. Blowfish have invaded local docks and back bays tipping the hooks with clams. 

This week the striped bass fishing was very good. Lots of small bass are being caught around the bridges with some bigger ones mixed in. The inlets are starting to yield some fish at night as well. By the bridges using small soft plastics on jig heads seems to work best. Small swimming plugs are working well also. In the inlets bucktails fished near the bottom have been working best. Some casters have been using swim shads too. For the bass try to fish at night. The daytime has had a lot of bluefish roaming the inlets. To catch blues heavy diamond jigs or tins and bucktails are the main lures used. The smiths point bridge has been seeing a run of blues as well. Most of the fish are being caught on topwater poppers but tins are working as well. 

Porgy fishing has been awesome in the Peconics. Many of the fish being caught are jumbos. Great on the grill! Our favorite baits for Porgy are sandworms, clams and squid. Using some chum will also make the fishing a lot better. The go to rig for Porgies is a double hook rig

Fluking has improved a lot this week with the warmer temperatures. The Smith Point County Park  bridge area has seen plenty of action with keeper sized fish up to 6lbs. Those fish are going after spearing, squid and gulp. Bucktails and fluke rigs are both very effective. In the peconics the fluking is decent. Some larger fish to 8lbs have been caught and the action has been consistent. To target a doormat try using a bigger bait such as a whole squid.

At the Local docks it has been reported that lots of blowfish are being caught. Either clams or squid are baits you can use for them. Using a little chum will help draw them in. Blowfish are very tasty and make a wonderful table fair.

The local lakes are still seeing nice amount of trout being caught from the recent stockings. Small spinners and kastmasters are what most people have been using. Either try West Lake  or Upper lake Yaphank. Just a reminder that right now you cannot target largemouth bass. They are currently spawning.

Hey Joe O here reporting for this weeks freshwater report I ended up scoring big with this nice 2 and half pound brown trout that ended up going for my home made dough.
Theres plenty of trout to be caught. The early mornings and late evenings are the best times to go due to the weather being cooler at those times but you still could pick off a few during the day if your patient. Thats all for now and like always GOOD TIMES TIGHT LINES!!!
