Striper fishing has remained consistant this last week. The bridges have held a good amount of smaller bass with a few keeper sixed being caught too. Mostly casters are doing wekk using small soft plastics on lead heads. If you want to use bait try clam or sands on a hi-lo rig.
Porgy fishing is hot right now in the Peconics. Using clam or sandworms on a double hook rig is the most effective method to catching them. the fish seem to be in most areas. Anglers have been doing well in 10-30 feet of water. Along the shoreline, anglers are also producing fish with clam and sandworms.
Reports of Striped Bass have been getting better almost every day now. We are finally seeing the break in the weather that is needed to get the season really going. Still lots of schoolies are being caught around the bridges and creeks but not mixed in are some larger legal fish to keep. Most of the fish are being caught on baits like sandworms and clam. If you want to try fishing lures id suggest using bass assassins, small bucktails, sp minnows and mag darters. The fish seem to be larger at night also.
