FISHING LOGS: Long Island, Metro NY
East End


Posted By Tony Salerno, November 5, 2018
Here’s a big tog decked aboard the Orient Pt. based charter boat Nancy Ann.
Well chalk up another one for Mother Nature, shutting down yet another weekend of fishing, causing most open, charter and private boats to suspend all trips due to gale force winds and heavy downpours. Despite the hard blow during most of the week, some of the boats that did sneak out found the tog more than happy to crush crab baits and fill out limits for anglers who braved the elements. Therefore with that said, blackfish will again be this week’s best bet. Some porgies and sea bass are still hanging around locally, but definitely thinning out. In fact, the best of the bottom fishing is occurring off Block Island for jumbo sea bass, some nice scup and some codfish, while Fishers Island is the land of the blackfish and some sea bass. Striped bass continue their migration run, with a lot of small fish still sticking around along the south side, especially off Hither Hills State Park. There are some keepers in the mix for the guys who put the time in. The false albacore are also on the migratory path and will most likely be gone within the next couple of weeks or sooner.
