A nice spark of action lit up the south shore beaches this whole week. Countless schoolie Striped Bass could be found on all the beaches from east to west. Daytime as well as night time had similar result. Bucktails, swimshads and small poppers were perfect for the day time; while SP Minnows and Joe Baggs swarter lures or Super Strike plugs could be used for good success at night. Try to focus on the beaches around Shinnecock and Moriches inlet or the local docks for some "schoolie" action. Some bigger fish (up to 40”) are mixed in with the schoolies too, so be ready for the possibility to hook into one of them.

If the weathers doesn't cooperate, try clam chumming around the Robert Moses State Park or Smith Point County Park  bridge. (Circle hooks are required)

Bluefish gave casters some extra fun earlier this week when a school ran along the stretches of beach from Shinecock Inlet  to Moriches. Some of the blues were over 15lbs. Anglers have also been reporting  large blues on the east end North Shore along  with the bass.

Blackfish and Sea bass have been keeping many busy who have decided to hit the wrecks and Artificial Reefs. Using green crabs on tog jigs will do well.

More on Blackfish...They are still are being caught and in good numbers around the island. Fishing green crabs seems to being doing the trick. On the north shore guys are seeing picks of  nice "toggs" in the range of 5 to 7 pounds. On the south shore people fishing the wrecks and around the rock piles are seeing a steady pick of fish. Still fishing the same style with Green Crabs they to are catching some hefty blackfish.

West Lake  was stocked for the final time this year with more brown trout. Not many anglers have been focused on this but if you are looking for something else to target give this a go. They will have no problem going after small spinners, kastmasters or even just plain nightcrawlers fished under a float.

Connetquot River State Park  Still has been offering some great fly fishing. I took advantage of this earlier in the week. Beats 9-16 all had plenty of fish. The trout were responding well to streamers as well as nymphs. Largest fish went to 18" 

J&J Sports will be introducing fly fishing instructions and demonstrations.  Each class size is limited. Classes will start February 1. Reservations are required. Detail coming soon..
