As I sit on my boat preparing the first instalment of the 2018 offshore report section, I can’t thank enough the service men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice to ensure America’s freedoms. Sadly this Memorial Day hits a little closer to home to the Fisherman staff. Long ...

FLOUNDER ABOUT

Posted By Bob Misak
Location: Southern New Jersey
The past week was absolutely crazy as anglers mixed it up between the sea bass out front, striped bass fishing in the bay and around the inlets, weakfishing, or that crazy, crazy drum bite in Delaware Bay. Drum to 70 pounds are being caught daily but the average drum runs ...

Posted By Pat Vogt
Location: New England Offshore
After a seemingly endless winter, the spring has failed to offer much relief in the weather department. With blizzards into April, and a constant barrage of rainstorms since, many boaters are still on the hard and scrambling to prepare for launch. As I type this on a (finally) sunny Memorial ...

SOLID BASS AND BLUES

Posted By Fred Golofaro
Location: Long Island Surf
Big bluefish are still very much in play this week, and there was more talk of big bass being taken in some areas. Montauk is seeing solid striper action on day and night tides with very few casters taking advantage of it. If you enjoy fishing the point but don’t ...

TAKE YOUR PICK

Posted By Geoffrey Lawrence
Location: West End South Long Island
What to do, what to do? Despite the rainy weather all species have been in a cooperative mood so what do you fish for? Gorilla blues have now joined the act and big boys to 10-pound plus have attacked whatever bait is in the water; especially in the bay. There ...

THREE-DAYS TO FISH

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
Striper action continues to improve and move through the Sound from west to east. The heaviest action (and heaviest fish) is still concentrated between the mouth of the Hudson and roughly the mouth of the Housatonic. These fish are the breeders exiting the Hudson and most of them are in ...
