STRIPERS TO 60 POUNDS AND A SOLID BLUEFIN BITE
Will Henry with an 84-pound bluefin tuna caught south of Fire Island Inlet on June 2nd. It was weighed at Bergen Bay Docks in West Babylon.
June opened in grand style with the development of a solid bluefin tuna bite. Bluefins from 40 to 80 pounds were found as close as 60 feet of water, and also in the 30 to 50 mile range. Big stripers were trolled and taken on live bunker along much of the South Shore with Fire Island heating up over the weekend and producing several bass topping the 50-pound mark, including a 58 pounder weighed at Chasing Tails and the late report of a 60.4 pounder from Saltwaters Tackle. Bluefish are seemingly everywhere and keeping both boatmen and surfcasters entertained. Porgies still a sure bet in most of Long Island Sound and on the East End where Cherry Harbor is now the place to be. There was also improved fluking on the East End with good numbers of quality fish in the 5 to 10-pound range. At least one thresher shark was boated over the weekend. This coming weekend sees the first of many shark tournaments taking place this month.
