Holiday Gift Ideas

November surf fishing along the south shore beaches remains active with striped bass fishing being very productive. On the beach the stripers are still very active. They are mostly in the 18-28" class ,(sub legal fish)  but still make for good fun. It is mostly day time action with tins like Charlie Graves Lures and Diamond jigs are producing many fish.

December weather permitting, Some great  opportunities are still available for anglers. Sea Bass and Cod fishing has been productive off the south shore wrecks and the Montauk region.  Jigs and rigs baited with clam or gulp teasers are both getting results. On the north shore and Long Islands east end, anglers are still pursuing blackfish. Right now they are in about 60 feet of water crunching on green crabs. Use a hi lo rig or a blackfish jig.  Many anglers have grown quite fond of the Joe Baggs Blackfish Jigs. Super strong hook with great hookup ratios. Either technique should be productive. A chill is in the air....

Glacier Glove, the standard, and still the best... Cold weather challenges are welcomed when cold weather gloves from Glacier Glove are an option. Whether you are ice fishing, hunting or installing chains, our variety of cold weather gloves are designed to keep your hands warm.

With the holiday season approaching it's that time of the year to start thinking of that perfect gift for your favorite Fishermen. Maybe a quality scale such as a BogaGrip, made to handle and weigh your prized catches. Or why not some hand tied Fin-Strike fluke rigs as a stocking stuffer. Thanksgiving is the perfect time to get in on the last of this years catch while stocking up for next years bite with some Jecks Bucktails or Charlie Graves-West End tins. These are two of fisherman's favorite lures that are used through out the season.

If you cant wait for next years false albacore run grab some "Joe Baggs" resin rigs. They cast extreamly well and the single hook feature makes unhooking fish a breeze.

Another worthy product from the Joe Baggs line is his Blackfish Jigs. These jigs provide you a new fun and easy way to target Blackfish. Available in an array of colors and different sizes. "Good things come in small packages"

For the local lakes, they are producing good catches. Trout were just stocked in West Lake  and will hit nightcrawlers "fished from floats." They will also hit lures like kastmasters and bluefox spinners. A light rod with 4lb test line is all you really need to catch these stocked trout. Other fish like bass, perch and pickerel will hit live shiners as well as
artificial lures like weedless worms and swim baits. This time of year is better to retrieve your lures slower, due to the colder water and lethargic fish.

As the weather changes and there is a chill in the air,. We have the perfect answer to the upcoming winter weather.  Our Winter Gear Collection will keep you warm and dry while fishing in the worst of conditions.
