    Craig from We Go Fishing Bait and Tackle in Southold reported bass fishing continues to be solid in the Race and Plum Gut using bucktails during the day, and live eels and bucktails at night. The start of the ebb tide has been best, however the fish are slamming baits on either moving tide. Fluke fishing has become very productive with plenty of quality fish around the Gardiners Bay area, especially off the ruins. Good fluke fishing is also still hanging on at Bugs Light and the oyster factory. The Green Lawns still hold some quality fish as Ken Dickerson weighed a beauty of 10.5-pounds this weekend from that area. Weakfish are in Noyack Bay and off Roses Grove taking squid on hilow rigs, while bluefish can be anywhere at any time. Kingfish and nice size blowfish are by Noyack Bay, especially by buoy 17 chewing down whatever is being offered to them. Porgies are still going well in Cherry Harbor and smaller ones in the bay. The Long Island Sound has been red hot for fluke, porgies, sea bass and stripers along the beach on the night tides. Shore bound anglers should look to Truman's Beach for scup, fluke and bluefish. Hortons Point is producing some quality stripers during the dark hours.

Back in the bay, squid strips and highlow rigs will catch weakfish off Roses Grove and Noyack Bay. Bluefish are at Jessup Neck and are staying deep.
