    Frank at Chasing Tails Bait and Tackle in Oakdale reported that it's getting chilly, and trout are starting to come out. A few local anglers have already started to do well at Bubbles Falls and Rattlesnake Creek with night crawlers and dough balls. Reaction baits are key this time of year, if you are going for bass. Chatterbaits, swimbaits, spinnerbaits, and especially jerkbaits will produce strikes from those fish that just don't want to bite. Senkos and other stick baits are great as well, rigged wacky, Texas, or Neko style, and moved slowly along the bottom for those big hits. Sunfish are still heavily active as well, which are great fun for the kids and adults as well. Find us on Facebook and Instagram (@chasingtailsbait) for pictures and updates during the week. We post customer submissions too! Find Bill and his fishing buddies on Instagram (@fishlongisland) as well.

    Frank at Chasing Tails Bait and Tackle in Oakdale reported that some of the deeper lakes are starting to turn over, but the shallow lakes are still full of action. Reaction baits are key this time of year, as the bass are getting chubby for winter. Chatterbaits, swimbaits, spinnerbaits, and jerkbaits will produce strikes from finicky fish. Senkos and other stick baits are great as well, rigged wacky, Texas, or Neko style for those big hits. Frogs, poppers, Whopper Ploppers, and mice are still getting smashed up as well. Those hours before and after sundown has been the best producer for topwater smashes. Streams, creeks, and small rivers are getting chilly, and a few anglers have reported decent Trout action on nightcrawlers and doughballs. Sunfish are still heavily active as well, which are great fun for the kids and adults as well. Find us on Facebook and Instagram (@chasingtailsbait) for pictures and updates during the week.

    Frank at Chasing Tails Bait and Tackle in Oakdale reported that the Fall bass action is going strong and these fish are hungry, and fattening up for the winter chill. Moving baits are getting smashed hard, and reaction baits are pulling those already stubborn fish out of their spot. Jerkbaits, jigs, chatterbaits, and swimbaits are the baits of choice this time of year. Don't forget spooks, frogs, and Whopper Ploppers during the morning and evening hours. If you're after panfish, Patchogue Lake is loaded up with big yellow perch and monster bluegill.

  • October 9, 2017 Open or Close

    Frank at Chasing Tails Bait and Tackle in Oakdale reported that for some lakes, fall bass feeding is on! At others, it's time for turn over, and that can put a damper on your fishing. If this is the case, switch up baits to a more finesse presentation. Weightless worms rigged Texas style work great, as well as shaky head worms and creature baits. Chris Dyroff managed to pull a decent sized bass out of Artist Lake on a weightless fluke style bait early Saturday morning. Bill from the shop hit his favorite local spot just before dark on Friday and had two fish in the 1.5 pound range smash his Zoom shaky head worm on a shaky head jig head. Panfish are biting and plentiful this time of year. Bluegill, yellow perch, white perch, and black crappie are all lots of fun on light to ultralight tackle. Will Ganshaw hit Patchogue Lake for some ultralight pan fishing on Thursday, and scored his new personal best yellow perch, weighing in at an impressive 1.75 pounds.
