SOLID ACTION WITH PORGIES AND STRIPERS

Posted By Bob Danielson, June 19, 2017
SOLID ACTION WITH PORGIES AND STRIPERS
Chunking bunker and trolling Mojos and spoons continues to produce quality stripers in the Sound.
The fluke fishing has been slowing down over the past week with many of the fish being under the legal 19 inch size limit. The huge numbers of sea robins on the bottom have also been hampering the fluking too. There are still plenty of the fluke around as we heard about fish up to 9 pounds in this week’s reports. The porgy fishing has been really productive this week though. The eastern end of the Sound has been seeing plenty of fish come over the rails or onto the beach. Fish over 3 pounds continue to be landed on a regular basis. Fishing the deeper water from 15 to 30 feet deep has been where most of the scup have been. Bluefish have been all over but most of the fjish have been small in the 1 to 5 pound range although some bigger fish have been taken from the deeper water. The stripers are moving east with some bigger fish coming up from the areas around Huntington and Port Jefferson. Bunker chunks has been producing the bigger fish but guys trolling Mojo rigs, bunker spoons and umbrella rigs have been seeing plenty of fish too. We heard of fish up to 40 inches being landed this week so there are some quality fish around.
