PORGIES HOLDING STEADY

Posted By Bob Danielson, September 25, 2017
PORGIES HOLDING STEADY
There’s been no letup in porgy action on Long Island Sound as evidenced by this catch aboard Sound Bound Fishing.
 The winds from Hurricane Jose had put a slowdown on the fishing this past week. Big waves also kept the effort down. We have heard that the inshore water is still pretty dirty as of Sunday morning but that should all clean up within a few days. The guys that have been able to get out and fish have been finding plenty of porgies around to fill their coolers. Fish over three pounds have been reported this week. Those bigger porgies have been taking worms drifted in the shallows or trolled for stripers. I would target bigger porgies with worms drifted out in the current or slow trolling them on a tube and worm rig with smaller hooks. Blues have been around with some bigger fish showing around Mid-Island harbors, and we’re still seeing plenty of cocktail size blues and snappers around. The snappers are staying late I think due to the warm temps we’re still seeing but I wouldn’t think that they’re going to stay too much longer. There have been scattered reports of stripers along the North Shore so far this fall but we’re only a week into the fall so not to worry too much.
