    John at J&J Tackle in Patchogue said there were still plenty of stripers being jigged south of Ocean Beach in 45 to 60 feet of water, but nearly all were shorts. Plain diamond jigs with a teaser two feet produced lots of action. A few open bottom cod have been mixed with the bass. Just a couple of short stripers reported from the beach.

    John at J&J Tackle in Patchogue said catches of 100 or more striped bass were common on the weekend in 50 to 60 feet of water off of Ocean Beach but keepers were rare. Diamond jigs with a green or white tube with a teaser two feet above was the way to go. Blackfishing is still okay on South Shore wrecks and reefs but here again it is mostly shorts.

    John at J&J Tackle in Patchogue said striped bass are still being caught from both the beach and the boats along the local south shore inlets. The fish are heavily feeding on the abundance of sand eels that have been around this year. Jigging and casting with diamond jigs with a green or white tube has been very effective landing fish. Drifting live eels at night has also been paying off for the boat guys in Moriches and Shinnecock inlets. While Diamond Jigs seem to be the way to go when working the beaches try using a white bucktail with a red Fat Cow Strip attached as this has also been working on the bass. Some big bluefish have been reported in the mix as well, with some teen sized choppers being caught. Blackfishing continues to be good along the South Shore wrecks and reefs as well as the rock-piles along the North Shore and the east end of the Peconics. Green crabs are the go to bait fished with the legs removed either whole or cut into halves or even quarters depending on the size. Use either a double hook blackfish rig or a single blackfish jig, both methods will land fish. The shop will be open for the holidays. Please visit them at
