FISHING LOGS: Long Island, Metro NY
East End


Posted By Tony Salerno, November 12, 2018
Blackfishing remains excellent off of the Island’s North Fork.
Does anyone out there know where the switch is to shut off the big fan? Mother Nature is being difficult to say the least. For three weeks I’ve been hoping to get outside Moriches Inlet with my Parker, but real lumpy seas and severe arthritis in my hips and back has put a halt in my crazy thinking of diamond jigging some catch and release stripers and hitting a few favorite pieces for a shot at some nice blackfish. In other news, blackfishing remains incredible despite the non-stop wind and rough seas. Fishers Island has been the hot spot where boats from three states are cashing in on the bounty that awaits with fish to 9 pounds. The Shinnecock Reef is also red hot with quality blackfish to 8 pounds when anglers can get outside to where they live. The Sound has also been excellent on the wrecks and rock piles just off the beaches and in the deep water. With that said blackfishing remains this week’s best bet. For steady sea bass and porgy fishing, head south of Block Island and most likely some cod and perhaps a bluefish or two will mingle into the catches. Most of the scup and sea bass from the local waters have moved on until next season as did the albies and bonito. Reports of stripers along the south side of Montauk continue but mainly of school bass in the 20 inch class. Some stripers are also being reported from the beaches along the Sound slamming jigs and plugs. Now if we can only find the switch to shut off the fan.
