Don't Forget Dad-Sunday June 21st • "Fun Fish Around Long Island"

Posted by Matt Broderick on


Fluke fishing has stayed okay in Shinnecock and Moriches bays. Its a pick and the spearing/squid combo has out produced the gulp. The water has still been a little on the colder side so I would recommend trying the outgoing tides around the inlets.

Porgy fishing has been good on the north shore as well as the Peconics. Once again this week sandworms and clam both performed well. Using chum helped keep the fish around longer. Some of the Porgys have been quite large too, pushing the 3lb mark.


 Open 7 days.

For those offshore guys we are getting word the the Tuna bite has been hot. Trolling has been getting is done. Some fish have been running right along the beach but a consistent spot has been the Combria wreck out of Shinnecock. Don't forget a permit is required for Tuna and Shark fishing.

Weakfish has been decent off of Ocean beach in the bay. Sandworms and squid have been working well for them. Try them on a small diamond jig along the bottom. Some of the fish being caught have been up to 8lbs.

Crabbing is also starting out hot and heavy. With an unusually large amount of softshell crabs being found. Some tasty treat!

Bluefish have been staying in the jetty in numbers. Fish are ranging from cocktail to teen sized. Bucktails and tins have the the go to for them. Fishing around the higher parts of the tide have been better when targeting blues.

This week saw a good pick at Striped Bass in the inlets as well as a nice showing of larger fish in the ocean. Inlets have been most productive at night with bucktails and rubber swim shads. In the ocean the number one method has been snagging bunker and waiting for a Bass to come by and eat it. Some of the fish being caught are over 50lbs. The main pods of fish are at Moriches inlet and East.

Lake fishing locally have been active. Most customers have been using nightcawlers or live shiners. Species being caught are Largemouth bass, Yellow Perch, Bluegill and crappie. A few trout are still being caught at west lake as well as upper lake.

Attached is a list of some "Fun Fish Around Long Island." Most are edible and plentiful too. So enjoy the summer and tight lines. (PDF)
