FISHING LOGS: Long Island, Metro NY
East End


Posted By Tony Salerno, September 10, 2018
Catches of fluke like this made aboard the charter boat Top Hook make fluke this week’s best bet.
The September run of doormat fluke is underway, which with a good steady drift and applying some elbow grease, putting together an impressive cooler with nice fat flatties to 13 plus pounds is quite possible. In reality however, most of the ocean fluke are in the 5 to 7 pound range and there sure are a lot of them around, making the summer flounder this week’s best bet. Striped bass are chewing on the top of the flood tide locally, and are biting quite well off Block Island, especially at Southwest Ledge. Sea bass are also thick at Southwest Ledge to a whopping 5 pounds. Porgies and sea bass are both chewing strong along both Forks with the deeper water producing the larger fish. Along the Sound, sea bass, porgies and blues are the main attractions, putting on one heck of a show, while some red hot bottom fishing with kingfish, blowfish, weakfish and porgies are providing plenty of action and good eating inside Peconic Bay. Shallow water fluking inside Shinnecock Bay has also been quite productive this week with fish to 6 plus pounds. The Shinnecock Reef has plenty of short sea bass, nice size scup and a few fluke and triggerfish.

Matt Cafiero- on board Hurry Up in Montauk. We had a great run of sizable blues and Striped bass. One small sea bass, thrown back. Then I hit this cow. A 49 inch and 43 lb beauty off of Block Island. Capt Donnie Braddick, who helped Frank Mundus land the famous great white, does all he can to make sure you’ll go home happy.

My Joyce III Montauk, NY We had some good fishing this morning for the Kit Norris group with a lot of bent rods! It was quantity over quality this morning, but there were plenty filets for everyone. The afternoon trip was a bottom fishing trip for the O’Brien group. It was lock and load sea bass fishing. Then we trolled up some monster bluefish to round out the afternoon.
