JUNE MOON YIELDS BIG STRIPERS

JUNE MOON YIELDS BIG STRIPERS
The June moon triggered a big bass bite in the Montauk rips.
The June moon did not disappoint as many cow bass made it back to the docks in Montauk Harbor this week and continue to do so as of this writing. I don’t expect the bass fishing to let up anytime soon and therefore, stripers will remain our best bet for the third week in a row. Lots of shorts and cows well over the 40 pound range are mingling together, so make sure to hold on tight to those sticks. Porgy and bluefish are a close second and third with still a lot of jumbo scup mixing with mediums, while bluefish remain gator size and plentiful. Fluke fishing continues to be slow along the south side of the Mecca with most days being a grind, while the Mattituck area continues to see a great bite. Shinnecock Bay has also spark big flames on the prime tides. The Peconic’s continue to see some decent shots of fluke, however most the limelight has been focused on the exceptional bass bite inside the Race and Plum Gut. Despite cold water temperatures, bluefin tuna and sharks are south of the island

My Joyce III, Montauk, NY - Fished the Star Island Shark Tournament this weekend. Unfortunately we had nothing to weigh on the My Joyce this year and the charter of Mickey, Chris, Jimmy, Tony and Dwayne on Friday had some nautical conditions. We caught a bunch of blue sharks, but the highlight of the day was a great white of about 175lbs. The conditions changed and became nice and calm, and we caught 7 blue sharks but none of them were weighable. All sharks where released to fight another day. We are available for the Montauk Marine Basin Shark Tournament next weekend. We are also available for inshore and offshore tuna and shark trips! Give Capt Ken call at 516-641-2138.
