Wego Fishing Bait & Tackle

May 22, 2017:
Craig from We Go Fishing Bait and Tackle in Southold reported striped bass have really turned on using bucktails in the Race both day and night. Fluke fishing is steady and off to a good start fishing around Shelter Island particularly by the Green Lawns. Andrew Rumpf stopped in to weigh up a 7.25-pound fluke on Sunday. Porgy fishing remains steady in the bay on the right tides. On his first fishing trip and catching his first fish of his life, little 8 year old Steven Welti stopped by the shop with his dad to proudly weigh in Steven's 3.2-pound porgy. Congratulations from all of us at The Fisherman. Weakfish are in the creeks, while big chopper blues terrorize the bays.

    Steve from We Go Fishing Bait and Tackle in Southold reported lots of jumbo porgies and blues at Jessup Neck this week along with a lot of nice striped bass taken on diamond jigs. On Saturday, Steve weighed in a 30-pound striper taken at Jessup on a diamond jig. Porgies are spread throughout the bay as are the bluefish. A few weakfish are mingling in with the porgies and blues, but there seems to be less around this week compared to last week. Squid fishing at the docks have tailed off considerably due to the heavy presence of bluefish. Steve is stocked and ready for fluke season so make sure to stop in and pick up you needs.

Sandworms and soft body plastics was key on Saturday. A lot of small stripers along with some keepers are also being jigged up in the bay and creeks, while big sea run porgies have invaded the Jessup Neck to Robins Island grounds sucking down fresh clam strips. Only a couple of reports of bluefish this week and each angler reported only catching a stray one or two. Squid remain to keep anglers out at night, especially around the Greenport docks, with some nights being better than others while employing pink or white squid jigs.

    Craig from We Go Fishing Bait and Tackle in Southold reported lots of schoolie bass continue to dominate the local creeks and inlets on small plugs, bucktails and swim shads. The big news however that comes to light in just the past few days is the massive amount of squid that have moved into the Peconic's and anglers fishing the Greenport docks during the night are loading up while using white, glow or pink squid jigs.
