FISHING LOGS: Long Island, Metro NY
South Shore


Posted By Tom Melton, July 10, 2017
The South Shore’s inshore reefs and wrecks remain well populated with sea bass.
The water is clear and the fluke are settled in from the Moses Bridge through the inlet area. The best tide remains the flood, but anglers enjoyed good catches with some fish pushing doormat class as evidenced by Zach Rupeck’s 31-inch, 10.3-pound doormat he caught Sunday on the Eskimo Too out of Captree. And, if fluke is not your fancy then head out to one of the pieces outside Fire Island or Moriches inlets for a great shot at quality sea bass. Moving back inside the bays, fluke action remained good in Moriches. In fact, I got out with my wife Kathie on Sunday and the two of us had a bunch of sea robins and several fluke just short of the keeper mark. We also fished the off tide – outgoing, rather than the preferred tide of in. For dock side anglers, crabbing has started and from what I am hearing it is a banner year with tons for the taking. Keep in mind, if you do go crabbing, they must be 4-1/2 inches point to point.
