FISHING LOGS: Long Island, Metro NY


Posted By Fred Golofaro, September 11, 2017

A good heave on the ocean made fishing the open beach difficult for several days this week and weekend, and limited access to some beaches like Smith Point which was closed to 4x4s Friday and Saturday. Prior to the heave, it appeared shark action was in decline, but fluke were still an option as the flatties begin staging near the inlets prior to their offshore migration. Albies showed up in good numbers in Moriches and Shinnecock inlets, and they were thick for the boat crowd in Montauk. They should provide some shots for casters working either side of the harbor entrance and also along Gin Beach this week. Bluefish activity ranged from very few to very sporadic except up on the North Shore where some big blues appear to have settled into the Huntington/Northport area. A few bass continue to be picked in the inlets, with better action in Montauk during the week, although it petered out by the weekend.

A final reminder that this Thursday, September 14th is the date for The Fisherman’s Annual Surf Fishing Show & Workshop at the Huntington Hilton. The show runs from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. and the first 500 attendees will receive a gift bag of assorted tackle items. Every attendee receives a free ticket for a raffle featuring lots of great prizes, including rods, reels, surf bags, tackle and surf fishing accessories, and additional raffle tickets will be available for purchase. Admission is $20 for adults and $15 for kids 16 and under. The show features ongoing seminars that are included in the admission price.
