STRIPER SEASON KICKS IN

Posted By Tom Melton, April 16, 2018
STRIPER SEASON KICKS IN
: Little Jordan Leonard with a keeper flounder from Great South Bay.
 With a few nice days towards the end of the week, and even earlier in the week when it was cooler, some flounder were caught. Although the catches may not have been banner formation, they were enough to spur interest. This week looks better towards the end, with a wicked cold front due in as I was typing this report. Striper season is also now open, and with reports of fish to the west, we should see more action daily. For striper fans, several Captree party boats begin their seasons now, targeting stripers. Blackfish remain on the somewhat quiet side, with some fish reported but nothing to sing about. As far as blackfish are concerned, we need a little warmer water temperature. In speaking to seasoned captains, we never see blackfish in our area until around April 20. If that holds true to form, anglers should see fish on the inshore and bay pieces the end of this week. For flounder action, fish the mud flats on the dropping tide and look for darker areas where the sun has had a chance to heat it up a bit. Heavy clam chumming will also aid in your catch.
