September 24, 2018:
At LI Outdoorsman in Rockville Center Tommy reported the bass action is coming to life with each passing cool night. Bluegills are taking worms under a float. The local lakes – Hempstead and McDonalds Pond are producing bass and panfish. For a larger bass, try using a bluegill fished under a float on a size 30 circle hook.

    At LI Outdoorsman in Rockville Center Rob said the local area – Grant Park, Lofts and Hempstead continue to produce bass, pickerel, perch and panfish for anglers. Nightcrawlers under a float will account for good panfish action. For larger bass, a bluegill on a circle hook could land you the largest one ever. Trout stockings are fast approaching, so now is the time to gear up for the fall run.

Sunnies and bluegills are in all the local ponds. Anglers targeting bass have tried Senko baits and frogs at Lofts and Grant Park. In the big lake at Hempstead, bass action seems to be bouncing back as the waters cool a bit too.

    At LI Outdoorsman in Rockville Center Tommy said the cooler nights have spurred more life into the bass fishing. For panfish, Hempstead Lake and Grant Park remain the go-to places. Another good option for bass would be the Massapequa Chain to the east. Tommy fished Grant Pond for several bass using black and blue Senko, and PB&J colored jigs. He reported fish to 3 pounds. A shop regular who dunks worms reported great panfish action at Grant too. Over at Lofts, the water is still a bit murky.
