SHOWING SIGNS OF LIFE

Posted By Fred Golofaro, October 2, 2017
 With no hurricanes in the forecast to batter the South Shore beaches, and finally a string of fall like weather under our belt, there’s hope that surf action shifts into gear this week. There are some indications that the surf scene may be slowly coming to life, particularly along both shores of the eastern end of the Island. Heavy surf from Maria shut down the ocean beaches during the week, but they were fishable by the weekend. Meanwhile, the good fishing taking place along the Rhode Island shore, south to Fishers Island, continues to offer the promise of those fish working their way down and along our shores.
Montauk is not what it should be, although the boats seem to be having little trouble finding good numbers of stripers in the rips. Despite the shortage of quality stripers in the wash, Paulie’s Striped Bass Surf Tournament held over the weekend did manage to produce a trio of decent bass to settle the contest. Richie Michelson’s 24.02 pounder took first, while young sharpie Ben McCarron took second with a 21.94 pounder and inveterate caster John Bruno nailed down third with a 21.60 pound striper.
Don’t forget the South Shore Classic coming up this weekend, October 13 through 15. See the ad in this week’s issue for details. The following week, sees the South Shore Spectacular hosted by Jones Beach Fishing Station take place October 20-22. See the events calendar, or contact Ed at 631-559-5938 or jonesbeachfishing@yahoo.com.
