FLUKE FISHING A GOOD BET THIS WEEK

FLUKE FISHING A GOOD BET THIS WEEK
Fluke fishing is on the upswing on the East End, making summer flatties this week’s best bet.
With the mass amount of sand eels that have moved into Mecca this week, the fluke fishing is on the upswing once again and should really rebound big time at the Cartwright and Frisbee Grounds once the nasty swells settle down. The rips up front of the lighthouse and the north side are loaded with short fluke, but with a bit of elbow grease and perseverance, you should be able to grind out a catch to 8 plus pounds. With fluke fishing remaining steady off Mattituck, excellent in Shinnecock Bay and improving in Gardiners Bay and off Montauk, I’ll go out on the limb and make the call that the summer flatties will be this week’s best bet. Striped bass fishing remains good, especially on the flood tide at the Elbow, however there are many smaller fish swimming with the larger ladies. Porgy fishing was back to top shelf quality as we moved away from the hard moon tides. Sea bass are thick and ready for lock and load fishing once the season debuts next week. The waters offshore are loaded with big makos, threshers and blue sharks and a Great White estimated at 175-pounds was also caught and released aboard the My Joyce on Friday.

My Joyce III, Montauk, NY - We Fished the Montauk Marine Basin Shark Tourement this weekend! We had some big blue sharks and a 130lb mako shark. The offshore scene is definitely heating up! On our inshore trips, it's been stripers, blues and fluke. Our weekends are booking up fast, but we still have some available, as well as some weekday dates available. Call Capt Ken at 516-641-2138.

Bass in gut when tide is strong. But slow when tide is weak. Tons of short fluke mattituck limits. Masses of sand eels being chased up onto the beach by girds of searobins and bluefish off mattituck
