PORGY POUNDIN’

PORGY POUNDIN’
Despite the recent hurricane swell, party boats like the Sea Tiger II are finding porgies are still chewing. “We only made it out on the morning trip on Friday and the seas were uncomfortable with 20 to 25 mph N winds and a SE swell but was not rough,” Capt. Hal reported, adding that Saturday was much nicer with buckets full of scup going to the cleaning table.
 Talk about a weather shortened week of fishing along the northern coast, most boats did not start sailing until Thursday or Friday. Hopefully the next storm heading up the coast, Maria, will take a big turn east and leave us alone. Needless to say Jose did a number on the beaches and really screwed up the water temps along the inshore waters. However, not all was bleak. The bass are on the move in the East River, Lower New York Harbor, as well as several places in Raritan Bay. Bluefishing seems to be decent all over and some weakfish are also being caught in a few places. Bottom fishing remains solid for porgies, ling, occasional cod, tog and tons of throwback sea bass. I won’t even mention all the fluke that are around and can’t be taken. Needless to say no boats got offshore this past week.
