NORTH FORK STAYS HOT

NORTH FORK STAYS HOT
Cooling water temperatures have fired up the tog bite on the East End.
 November spells blackfish, and therefore blackfish will be this week’s best bet. Not because of what the calendar says, but rather after the hard blow early in the week, water temps chilled down to around 60 degrees and sparked off the blackfish bigtime since Wednesday. Weather you fish the Sound, North Fork, the north side of Montauk or Shinnecock, the togs are chewing hot and heavy. Some small to teen size stripers are still hanging on around the Mecca, but all those big and chunky linesiders have moved west to the delight of anglers fishing Fire and Jones Inlets. The best striper action along the Forks right now is no doubt the Sound beaches from Petty’s Bight to at least Northville. Loads of albies are also coming from the suds as are plenty of big blues. Sea bass remains one of the hottest tickets in town, especially between Fisher’s and Block Islands. Plenty of mixed size scup and codfish are also challenging for the sea bass bait. The Peconic’s have slowed down quite a bit after the blow with only a handful of bluefish, stripers, porgies and kingfish still being around. False albacore are everywhere along the north side of Montauk. The fall run is far from over as some of the best days are still ahead.
