Most party and charter boats have been locked up due to ice and strong winds. When they are able to get out though the fishing have been consistant with cod. Locally, ice covered all the lakes last week giving ice fishermen a good shot at ice fishing. Using shiners or nightcrawlers at Great Patchogue, West Lake and other lakes in the area produced fish.
The Connetquot river has still been offering consistant fishing for those who have been working the beats. The cold weather slowed the fish down a bit but when the temps climb a little we will see a spike in fish activity again.
The shop itself in now in winter hours mode. Hours are 9-5 Monday through Saturday and 9-3 on sundays. In the next few months we will have booths at the following shows and flea markets...

Come down to these events, stop by our booth and say hi! Its always a plesent time and a good way to restock on needed tackle for the season.
