ACTION IN THE GOM

Posted By Greg Metcalf
Location: South Shore Mass. to Maine
There are a few bright spots on the saltwater front. The haddock and jumbo pollock fishing is very good when the weather allows you to get out. Stellwagen Bank’s Northwest corner is a safe bet to fill your freezer for the winter. Make sure to check the weather first, however, ...

Posted By Geoffrey Lawrence
Location: North Shore Long Island
Everyone is happy about the overall numbers of blackfish but not so happy about the number of keepers. The fish are not hard to find and large numbers of them are available on local wrecks and rocky structure. Some spots to try are the City Island area bridges, Execution Light, ...

Location: South Shore Long Island
Once again the best bet for this week is striped bass! The bass have invaded the Moriches to Fire Island area, the only issue is finding larger fish. There is a ton of fish from teen to 25 pounds, but fish over 30 have been quite sporadic. Watch your electronics ...

For the third week in a row, or is the fourth, I am writing about the wind. This has been THE windiest fall I can remember. And it seems like the relentless wind has dropped the water temps much faster than anyone expected. The porgy season is, pretty much, over. ...

HOT TOGGING

Posted By John Hanecak
Location: Rhode Island

INCREDIBLE TOGGING

Posted By Tony Salerno
Location: East End Long Island
Does anyone out there know where the switch is to shut off the big fan? Mother Nature is being difficult to say the least. For three weeks I’ve been hoping to get outside Moriches Inlet with my Parker, but real lumpy seas and severe arthritis in my hips and back ...

LATE FALL BASSIN’

Posted By Tom Melton
Location: Long Island Freshwater
For this week, try bassing in your favorite honey hole. I would opt for lakes that have a little depth as the cooler temps should see bass going a bit deeper. They will however slide out of the depths into the warmer shallow water as the sun gets higher in ...

LBI LIGHTS UP

Posted By J. B. Kasper
Location: Central New Jersey
Needless to say the number one story along the middle coast was the influx of big stripers this past week. Bass in the 20 to 40-pound class, along with a few fish topping the 50-pound mark ruled the decks of the boats that braved the often brutal weather this past ...
