Wego Fishing Bait & Tackle

September 24, 2018:
Craig from We Go Fishing Bait and Tackle in Southold reports albacore insanity just about anywhere there is water. The entire east end of the Sound is loaded with the speedsters. Cocktail blues are also sharing the same waters as the albies along with some striped bass. The north and south side of Montauk, Gardiners Bay and east of Orient Point are all holding their share of albies as well. Hogy Epoxy Jigs, Deadly Dicks and Super Strike plugs catch the speedsters along with the blues and stripers. Inside the bay, porgies remain abundant with some kingfish, blowfish and cocktail blues mixing in. Some blues remain near Jessup Neck and a few weakfish are sticking around at the Middle Grounds and Noyack Bay. Jumbo scup and jumbo sea bass are going strong off Block Island, however there are plenty of large scup and sea bass much closer to home with the north side of Plum Island and the Sluiceway producing big numbers towards slack tide. Anglers braving the lumpy ocean are still nailing a few big fluke from the Frisbee Grounds, while smaller fluke are more abundant among the rips just off Montauk Point. Striped bass remains plentiful off the Race and Sluiceway with a few keepers among many small fish. The night bite has been much better on the night tides on live eels. Snapper fishing has been awesome at all the docks on Kastmaster's, snapper poppers and spearing.
