Wego Fishing Bait & Tackle

May 21, 2018:
Steve from We Go Fishing Bait and Tackle in Southold reported unbelievable fishing going on right now from scup to stripers. The stripers are hot and heavy in the Plum Gut and at Jessup Neck smacking diamond jigs. Fish range from shorts to 35 pounds. One ounce open mouth style bucktails are duping the bass of Jessup Neck as well. Weakfish are going strong in Noyack Bay and off Nassau Point on pink rubber shads and hilow rigs tipped with squid. Porgies are all over the bay including the Middle Grounds, with the bigger sea porgies now concentrating in Cherry Harbor. Fluke fishing at the Green Lawns picked up nicely this week as did Bugs Light and the old Oyster Factory. The usual baits and bucktails gets the job done at these locations. Lots of squid and bluefish are all over the place with Jessup Neck being the hot spot for those species as well. Now is the time to get out here and catch some fish.

    Craig from We Go Fishing Bait and Tackle in Southold reports there are all the porgies you can handle in Southold Bay and in most of Little and Great Peconic Bays to over 4 pounds. Weakfish have moved into the same areas as the porgies being taken on the rigs intended for the scup. The weakfish bite however has improved greatly this weekend where many anglers are now targeting them solely. Fluke continues to improve with the area of the Green Lawns getting the most attention, however there are plenty of good flatties to be caught around Shelter Island and off Greenport.

    Steve from We Go Fishing Bait and Tackle in Southold reports porgies are absolutely going insane in Southold Bay. Many of the scup are true sea run females between 16 and 18 inches. Buoy 17 to the Middle Grounds has been excellent. The big scup can be found off Jessup Neck and off Greenport. Fluke fishing is building momentum by the day as water temperatures continue to elevate. The Green Lawns is the go to hot spot for 95 percent of the boats, however the 5 percent that are spread out between Bugs Light and the old Oyster Factory are seeing a better ratio of keeper fluke. Craig from the shop fished away from the massive fleet of boats fishing the west side of Shelters Island by fishing near Bugs Light, and was rewarded with a beautiful 11-pound flattie. Striped bass and bluefish are now by Jessup Neck and are happily accepting diamond jigs.
