    Steve from We Go Fishing Bait and Tackle in Southold reported that the porgies and weakfish remain plentiful at Noyack Bay by buoy 16, Roses Grove and Nassau Point. Still plenty of cocktail blues roaming around Jessup Neck with much larger gator blues roaming Gardiners Bay, especially by the rip line off the Ruins. The Plum Gut and the Race are also clogged with gorilla blues making it difficult to get to the stripers. The good news is that the yellow eye monsters lightened up a bit on Saturday and gave the bass a shot at angler's baits as those fishing between the Forks reported an improvement on teen size bass. Porgies are anywhere you can turn over a rock, while there are no shortage of sea bass off Plum and Fishers Island, as well as Pigeons Rip and along Mumford, Rocky and Hortons Points up in the Sound. Snappers and crabs are white hot as the kids of young and old continue to fill pails with the baby blues and tasty crustaceans.

    Steve from We Go Fishing Bait and Tackle in Southold reported the Race is the place if you want some solid blue fishing. Diamond jigs of 6 to 10 ounces will catch the blues and knot head sea bass. Stripers are hard to get to due to the abundance of bluefish all over the area. Sea bass remain plentiful on the rocks west of Fishers Island, east of Gardiners Island and in Pigeons Rip. Jumbo scup are in Plum Gut and best to fish just before the tide slacks and then just as it flips around with clam on hilow rigs working best while drifting.

    Weakfish, scup, blues, kingfish and blowfish continues to hold strong in Peconic Bay, especially Noyack Bay, Rose Grove and off Nassau Point. Blues are still a good bet off buoy 17 if cocktail size is good enough. Fishing from the beaches of the Sound have been producing blues and porgies. Snappers are providing fast pace action during the early morning hours, while crabbing remains excellent as well.

    Steve from We Go Fishing Bait and Tackle in Southold reported the striper fishing remains solid at the Race, Sluiceway and Plum Gut. Use 3x3 rigs tied with swim shads, or live bait for the best results. Plenty of blues are also on the same grounds as the stripers. Sea bass of the jumbo kind continues to be taken east of Gardiners Island over the lumpy bottom to 4 pounds. Lots of sea bass and porgies are also going strong towards slack tide near Plum and Fisher Islands. Actually, any rocky lair in the Race and Sluiceway are chock full of scup and biscuits. The key is fishing at the end or the start of the tides while the current are at its lightest. Weakfish, scup, blues, kingfish and blowfish continues to hold strong in Noyack Bay, Rose Grove and off Nassau Point. Blues are still a good bet off Jessup Neck.
