Long Island Outdoorsman

July 16, 2018:
From L.I. Outdoorsman in Rockville Centre we were told that most of the surf action along the oceanfront has involved sharks and rays with the best action at night on bunker. A few small bass have been picked on clam baits. Fluke have become the main target of most casters. Bucktails tipped with chartreuse Gulp have been producing mostly shorts with an occasional keeper at Atlantic Beach, West End Jones Beach, Democrat Point, Magnolia Pier and inside the inlets.

    Rob Jr. at L.I. Outdoorsman in Rockville Centre said most of his customers have been catching brown and sand tiger sharks on bunker chunks along the ocean beaches from Jones to Fire Island Inlet. Fluke fishing has been good along the oceanfront at Atlantic Beach, West End Jones Beach and Democrat, and also inside the inlets. Spro bucktails with chartreuse Gulp and a chartreuse teaser have been the ticket. Eric Klinentz from the shop had fluke to 20 inches this week, and there were reports of a 10.50 pound fluke from the Canarsie Pier.

    Rob Sr. from LI Outdoorsman in Rockville Centre said there have been a few bass around in the back bay and around the jetties from Jones Inlet west but it is mostly an early morning bite and you have to work for the fish. He heard of some blues from the back of West End Two, and decent fluke action from the same area, as well as Magnolia Pier on bucktails tipped with Gulp. Decent numbers of kingfish showed up along the oceanfront his week, taking clams, squid and worms.

    Rob Jr. at LI Outdoorsman in Rockville Centre said it was kind of a quiet week as far as surf reports went. He didn't hear much on bass or blues other than some schoolie bass in the back bays at night and dawn on swimming plugs and soft plastics. He did know of some nice keeper fluke caught at Magnolia Pier and Bay Park. He's been doing well on fluke using chartreuse bucktails, Gulp and teasers.
