    John at J&J Tackle in Patchogue said with a long off season ahead of us all we usually fall into the cabin fever routine after the holidays. Luckily plenty of things will be going on to keep us all busy. The next show coming up is Striper Day hosted by Surfcasters journal at Hofstra University on January 13th. The shop will have a booth at this event. We are also in the works of getting together some rod building events at the shop. They first ones will feature the basics of rod building and repair. More details are to come. Good reports for cod and sea bass have trickled in. The boats off Montauk have been doing quite well. More seabass overall than cod. Hi Lo Rigs baited with clam is perfect. Sometimes using a cod jig helps weed out the cod in the mix. Boats off Shinnecock and Moriches are doing well also on the wrecks. They have been traveling a little bit further out in search of them though. Some herring have made their way into the harbors of the north shore. Sabiki rigs are usually what most use. A very simple vertical jigging motion is all that is needed. You can catch several at a time if a large school is passing by. One trick is to keep one rod on the water with a herring in the line while actively fishing the other. The one herring will keep the school around longer. We're open all year and will be attending the winter shows.

    John at J&J Tackle in Patchogue reported that the wintery weather and freezing cold temperatures made for a very quiet week on the fishing front. Prior to all the cold, wind and snow, there were still small stripers being caught in the surf at FINS and Fire Island, and herring were coming from Mt. Sinai Harbor. West Lake is a good choice for trout with warmer temperatures forecast for the weekend.

    John at J&J Tackle in Patchogue reported that Saturday's snow had no effect on the striped bass action. Lots of small bass along the beach for surfcasters and a few private boats out of Fire Island had bass into the teens in Saturday's snow. Some herring being reported form Mt. Sinai Harbor, and West Lake continues to produce some good trout action on gold spoons and worms.

  • December 4, 2017 Open or Close

    John at J&J Tackle in Patchogue reported that boats out of Fire Island Inlet continue to rack up big numbers of stripers on diamond jigs. Many of the fish are shorts now but some days still see a good number of keepers to 20 pounds. There have also been a few cod reported mixed in with the bass. Blackfish are on the inshore reefs and still being taken along the rocky shoreline of Fire Island Inlet but most of the shore fish are shorts. West Lake has been producing some good trout action on gold spoons.
