    Steve from We Go Fishing Bait and Tackle in Southold reports inside the bay, the porgies and bluefish are still going strong, while things have been quiet on the weakfish front. Blues and albacore are also all over Gardiners Bay as well as in the Race, Plum Gut and the Sluiceway. The latter is also starting to produce some quality striped bass, which should peak by the next cold snap. Blackfish are at all their usual fall haunts with the shallow waters up close to the north side of Plum Island your best shot at putting a limit of togs in the box. Green crabs are the preferred bait. Steve advises to stay at it and grind it out and the keepers will come among the shorts. The beaches of the Sound has been red hot for big bass and all the false albacore you want. Anywhere from Petty's Bight on west to Mattituck inlet are producing, with the rockier beaches producing the biggest bass. Alan Connell fished from the beach by Hortons Point this week for a bass of 34.50-pounds. John Karinca fished the same area for a 33.20-pounder. Sea bass, porgies and blackfish are all responding well to clams and crabs by Rocky and Mumford Points as well as Truman's Beach either from the beach or from a boat.

    Steve from We Go Fishing Bait and Tackle in Southold reports the blackfish continue to chew away at green crabs in the shallow rock piles along the north side of Plum Island in 20 to 25 feet of water. Still a lot of shorts dominating the catches, however if you stick with it, odds are good that you'll be able to cull out a limit of keepers. Try fishing a couple of hours around the slack tide when 8 to 10 ounce sinkers will be able to hold bottom. Sea bass fishing remains excellent at Fishers Island and just off the shoreline along the rocky lairs of the Sound from Rocky Point, and heading west in front of Shoreham. Striped bass is on an upswing during the dark hours in Plum Gut and the Sluiceway as well as Rocky and Hortons Points in the Sound at the start of the ebb tide on eels or live legal size porgies. Bluefish from cocktails to gorillas are startling bass anglers in the same areas during the daytime hours. Should that be the case, replace the live baits with 6 to 10 ounce diamond jigs, fish them deep, and it's a strong possibility of putting a decent bass or two in the box. False albacore continues to race randomly all over the Sound for the beach casters and boatmen. However fishing for the little tunny is a case of feast or famine with no way of predicting when the speedsters will expose themselves. The usual array of shiny metals, flies and epoxy jigs should get them gulping. Occasional showings of assorted size blues and some school size bass are picking up the slack while the albies are on hiatus. Porgies remain thick at all their usual haunts and should remain that way until they begin heading for the deep at the end of October or early November. Inside the bay is seeing big blues at Jessup Neck and weakfish at Noyack Bay.

    Steve from We Go Fishing Bait and Tackle in Southold reports the blackfish are off to a good start around the shallow water around Plum Island on green crabs. Sea bass fishing remains excellent as well in the same general area as the togs as well as by Fishers Island and along the rocks in the Sound. The albacore are all over the Sound and both the beach casters and boatmen are reaping on the action. Frequent visits from giant blues and some schoolie bass are picking up the slack while the albies are on hiatus. Porgies are thick and chewing well on the same grounds as the biscuits and also on the hard sandy bottoms of Truman's Beach and Mumford Point. The Sluiceway and the Race are still retaining bluefish, but more and more stripers are overtaking the yellow eyed monsters, especially at night during the outgoing tide. Live eels are now out fishing bucktails, although 3-ounce purple and maroon color buckstails on 3x3 rigs are neck and neck with the slimy snakes. Swim shads or yellow and white bucktails work well if the bluefish are absent during the day. Inside the bay, between the Forks are also seeing togs chewing down green crabs off the old Brickyard and off the Greenport jetty. Noyack Bay to Jessup Neck are still holding plenty of scup, blowfish, kingfish and weakfish.
