Striped Bass Opens April 15th-Dec 15th 1@28" Per Person. Get yours NOW!!!!

Posted by Montauk Matt on

Rainbow and Brown trout (Just recently STOCKED) at the local lakes are providing consistent action for anglers. The “stocked trout” have been taking baits such
as wax worms, meal worms, night crawlers and trout worms. Fishing any of these baits about two feet under a float with give you good odds at getting a bite. Also, try some lures such as kastmasters, blue fox spinners and Thomas lures for another method of landing
these stocked fish.

Bassing” at the lakes is picking up too. The warming water has got the bass to feed more aggressively.
Live shiners are the number one choice for LM Bass. However, using a senko worm or Berkley worm (rigged weedless) can draw some strikes too.

Flounder fishing this past week was still on the slower side. Still the key is to find the warmest water in the bay. Chumming heavily will increase your odds greatly. Sandworms and clam are both the baits being used to pick away for flatties.

Striper action is improving daily. This past week, with sunny days and mild nights, we saw that the fishing action improved greatly.
Most Stripers are out and about feeding heavily. Try one of my favorite lures. A soft shad body rigged on a leadhead.
My other recommendations are Bass Assassins, fin-s fish, curly tails and small rubber bowl shads. Small plugs such as the sp minnow, red fin and bombers are picking fish too.
Most fish are small and under 20" but it is possible to pick a fish over 28."

This past week, many anglers were reporting that Some bigger fish have been running along the western Sound. If you are willing to make a trip it can pay off.
Just a reminded that the season opened this Saturday, April 15th. The regulations this year is one fish per day, per angler at 28"
