Fishing reports remain tough to come by with just a couple of boats left targeting cod this winter, along with a scarcity of herring. Despite the nice weather on Sunday, ice from last week’s deep freeze kept at least one boat trapped at the dock. There was a bit of an uptick in white perch action in tidal creeks when free of ice, but that’s been about it on the saltwater side. The cold weather did spur some decent ice fishing action on reservoirs in nearby Westchester County. Joseph and Sheryl Kallo have been doing well on largemouth bass, white and yellow perch and crappies. On the Island, Connetquot River State Park continues to yield decent trout fishing for flyrodders.
