DUST IN THE WIND

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
Man was it windy last week, and the NOAA forecast isn’t looking too hot for this week either. If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my 20-plus years of fishing hard in the salt it’s that complacency doesn’t play. I can’t say that I never fall victim to its temptations, ...

HIT THE FORKS

Posted By Fred Golofaro
Location: Long Island Surf
The ocean beaches through Southampton and East Hampton, and to a lesser degree further west (Demo saw a good bite Sunday morning) continued to produce excellent striper action both in quantity and quality. Some casters labelled the action epic at times this week, with fish from the low teens to ...

MAKE IT WORK

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England Surf
This week saw some strong winds and at times downright dangerous seas up and down the New England coast. There was a time when I salivated at such conditions, making a b-line for the nearest shore location to fight through the weather at the chance of finding some fish. Whether ...

Posted By Tony Salerno
Location: East End Long Island
Just when you thought the darn wind would finally give us a breather by easing off even just for a little while. Unfortunately nothing could be further from the truth. The big fan was left on high most of the week forcing open and charter boats to stay tied to ...

Location: Long Island Offshore
Water temperatures are finally starting to come down. Blue and white marlin will be very tough to find. But we should still hear reports of big eye, yellowfin, mahi mahi and albacore for the next few weeks taken at the canyons. From 30 fathoms in mid sixty-degree water is prime ...

RIVER ACTION

Posted By Bob Misak
Location: Southern New Jersey
The past week in South Jersey was a good one by anyone’s standards as anglers mixed it up for fall; there were solid catches of nice sea bass by those who trekked to 100- to 120-foot depths, with some triggers, porgies and chopper blues all part of catches, including a ...

SOLID BLACKFISHING

Posted By Geoffrey Lawrence
Location: North Shore Long Island
Blackfishing remained solid and good catches occurred on the days anglers were able to anchor up. The reports were consistent in regards to fishing the shallow depths of 20 to 40-ft. Green and Asian crabs helped nail ‘tog on bait rigs, and small pieces of crab on a jig worked ...

STILL FLOUNDERING

Posted By Eric Burnley
Location: DE, MD & Chesapeake Bay
It was another week of wind and rain so very few boats were able to fish the bay or the ocean. When conditions allowed some fishing to happen the sea bass and flounder were waiting. This will be the best bet for the week. On the Chesapeake, schools of ...
