    Kyle at J&B Tackle gave me a call on Sunday with a good report from the crew of the "Finale" out of Niantic. Kyle said they took a steam down to the Hudson which resulted in three yellowfin and three swords. Kyle knows that Veatch has also been good for swordfish, with a couple of hefty yellowfin of 75-plus inches mixed-in for good measure. Locally, folks are seeing bluefin of mixed sizes feeding on sand eels a few miles south of Long Island, but from what Kyle told me, getting them to bite has been extremely challenging.

    Kyle at J&B Tackle told me that those who made it out before the big storm fared well with yellowfin just south of the Tails and the 100-Square. The mahi bite was reportedly very good as well, which helped fill some of the gaps in the tuna action. Kyle said that boats are continuing to go looking for tuna and swords when the weather allows. Buddy-boats are the name of the game this time of year, as nobody likes being 100 miles from home in autumn seas all alone.

  • October 14, 2019 Open or Close

    Kyle at J&B Tackle said that the only boats that he knew of fishing last week's storm were some commercial tilefish operations with big enough vessels to manage the seas. There is a short window to get offshore this week, and Kyle has a couple of his customers planning on fishing it.

    Kyle at J&B Tackle reported some spotty canyon fishing this week from the Tails to West Atlantis. As Kyle put it, there were some yellowfin to be had, but most boats settled for mahi, albacore tuna, and a shot at some swordfish. According to what Kyle had heard, the better chunk fishing was supposedly to the east in Veatch and Hydrographer. If we are going to see a decent fall bite develop, it should be in the next few weeks as the water temps start to change.
