True World Tackle

June 18, 2018:
We started this weeks report with word of some striped bass being caught in New York Harbor on Saturday morning from Akira over at True World Tackle. Akira told me chunking and trolling scored the bass early in the morning. Pier fisherman are also seeing a few bass after dark off the piers along the lower Hudson River. The best fishing this past week was the bottom fishing which served up good numbers of sea bass and ling at 17 Fathoms, the Mud Buoy and the Fisherman's Buoy. Fluke fishing was hit or miss with the better fishing being off Coney Island, Swinburn Island and Hoffman Island, as well as the Sandy Hook Channel.

    Akira at True World Tackle told us he did several sinker bouncing trips to the Mud Hole which found good fishing. While you had to pick through shorts there were plenty of keepers to fill the fish box, he said. This past week saw the best fluke fishing in the Reach and off Coney Island where the ratio of keepers was better with flatties to 4-pounds being boated. While stripers provided some excellent fishing off Sandy Hook on Wednesday evening and Thursday the best fishing has been in the evening on the troll and live lining in the deeper water. Anglers fishing off lower Hudson River piers are scoring a mix of smaller blues and bass.

    As per usual our first report of the week comes from Akira over at True World Tackle. Akira told us he fished a couple of trips in New York Harbor and found picky bass fishing along with some bluefish. On Monday a sea bass trip to the Scotland Grounds produced a good bite of knuckleheads. Some of the better fluking has been off Norton Point and Coney Island on jig-bait combinations, he said. Anglers fishing off the piers along the lower Hudson River are picking up a mix of bluefish and short stripers on the top of the tide and the first part of the outgoing water on cut bunker and worms.

    Akira over at True World Tackle said striper fishing was good early in the week in New York Harbor, but slowed up later in the week. Fishing in the East River has also been slow with boats reading a lot of fish but not taking them. Some of the best fishing has been off Sandy Hook after dark where fish to 40- pounds were caught. Pier fishermen at Hudson River Park, Exchange Place, Hackensack and other lower Hudson River piers continue to pick up mixed size stripers, some tog and a few blues. When it comes to the fluke fishing the Jersey opener produced plenty of fish with some boats maxing out while others seeing a catch dominated by short fish, he said. Bottom fishing has been decent with sea bass, cod, pollock and ling providing good action.

    Akira at True World Tackle told us he has been fishing New York Harbor where action has been spotty, the best action coming on the outgoing tide on the chunk. He said this past week saw a good influx of decent size bass into Raritan Bay with some of the best fishing being on the troll and on the chunk in the Reach. In addition he mentioned that big bluefish have been mixing in with the bass in the bay, but have not made their way into the Harbor. The word on the New York fluke fishing has been decent catches off Coney Island and in Jamaica Bay, he said.
