FISH THE TIDES

Posted By Tom Melton, August 7, 2017
FISH THE TIDES
Some quality fluke are coming from the ocean now. Inside the inlet, fishing the last of the in and start of the ebb is critical.
For this week, and because they are so plentiful, would you believe sea robins. The bottom line is they are easy to catch, fight decent, and if you read the article on how to cook and clean them, you might be pleasantly surprised. Okay, so if sea robins do not float your boat, then make sure you fish the last few hours of the incoming current and first of the outgoing for best fluke results. You will have to weed through sea robins, but enough table size fluke are in the mix. Another option might be bottom fishing in Great South Bay. The Island Princess saw fares bag over 300 porgies on one trip in the bay.
Don’t forget about this year’s 34th Annual Snapper Derby in Patchogue is being held at Mascot Dock. This event will be taking place on Saturday, September 2nd. Two different divisions are going to be open this year. The first will be taking place from 1:00- 2:00 p.m. for ages 6-15 and the second will be from 2:30-3:30 p.m. for ages 16 and up.
