A LIVE OCEAN

Posted By Tony Gatto
Location: Long Island Offshore
The 30 fathom line is still packed with a ton of life. As long as the sand eels stick around it is going to remain good. Bluefin have been reported in all size classes from unders, to overs and giants. Diving plugs, down riggers and planers seem to be producing ...

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Cape Cod & The Islands
If you were waiting for both striped bass and bluefin tuna to make a heavy appearance in and around the waters of the Cape, then this past week was a one-two knockout punch for you! Almost simultaneously both species arrived in force with load of big specimens hooked, and even ...

BETTER BASSING

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: South Shore Mass. to Maine
With large schools of pogies joining mackerel in the area from Boston Harbor north, local area bassing continues to produce large fish into the 50-pound class. Trolling a live bait as well as large swimming plugs and even tube and worm rigs is producing the bigger fish. Snag and drop ...

CANAL MELEE

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England Surf
I knew this past week was going to be good for local surf fishing. Not because I have some 6th sense of fishing, and not so much because I poured over past reports and logbooks, but because I was down in Florida all week for work attending ICAST 2018. In ...

COW BASS BLITZ

Posted By Tony Salerno
Location: East End Long Island
Quite simply striped bass will again be this week’s best bet and rightfully so. It seems as if you have a flooding tide at any of the rip lines that surrounds Montauk Point and drag live bait through them, odds are good of nailing a limit of cow bass with ...

The summer fishing pattern has arrived. Ling and sea bass are biting heartily, fluke are around but taking some work, and night bassing with eels for the striper-addicted crowd. The crabbing reports are simply excellent, some of the best reports in a few years, and plenty of places to do ...

DUKE OF FLUKE

Posted By Bob Misak
Location: Southern New Jersey
The past week in South Jersey was a good one even as weather was so-so. Captains got a few solid days out front as the sea bass season made it worth running to the reefs once again. There were good catches of humpbacks and some hefty fluke taken from ...

FISH THE TIDES

Posted By Tom Melton
Location: South Shore Long Island
For this week I would hit your favorite fluke grounds. There is a caveat however, if you fish the bay, you must fish the clean water, which typically is the last of the flood and first off the ebb in Great South. In Moriches, the bay is clear on both ...

LATE NIGHTS FOR BASS

Posted By Tom Melton
Location: Long Island Freshwater
For this week, and with all the heat, I would head to your favorite pond late at night – 10 p.m. or later. Fish black Jitterbugs or large black or purple worms fished weedless. I have caught some of my largest bass fishing small ponds on Long Island from 10 ...

Posted By Fred Golofaro
Location: Long Island Surf
If you’re intent on catching stripers and blues, the Island’s East End is the place to focus your efforts, unless of course you want to head north and join the crowds fishing the Cape Cod Canal where the fishing exploded this week and looked very much like last summer’s wild ...
