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.
