FISHING LOGS: Long Island, Metro NY
East End


Posted By Tony Salerno, October 30, 2017
Now is the time to catch that jumbo sea bass, along with big scup and maybe even a cod or two.
 As predicted, bottom fishing took off faster than a rocket ship once the barricades were removed from Uncle Sam’s waterway this week as scores of jumbo sea bass, jumbo scup and market to mid-size green cod stole the show from the local striper scene as most charter, open and private boats captains had their mouths all watered up with the anticipation of steaming off to the Block Island grounds, for what most skippers and their clients considered to be “Fantasy Fishing”. Unfortunately, the front that pushed in just in time for Tuesday morning put a cap on any thought of steaming offshore with dangerous high seas for a couple of days. Boatmen who braved the elements closer to home found medium to large scup along any rock strewn bottom they were able to locate out of the wind and rough seas. Striped bass slowed up this week a little bit for some anglers, while others seem to have little difficultly limiting out. Blackfish continue to build east of Montauk and Orient Points, while chewing solidly off Shinnecock and up in the Sound between Truman’s beach and Rocky Point. Albacore continue to sprout here and there just about everywhere with the north side of Mecca and Long Island Sound beaches the places to be. Big bluefish are with them at times as are some stripers to 30 plus pounds. Sunday was pretty much a washout.
