September 17, 2018:
"Last week we had fluke to 6 pounds and some decent fishing. This week heavy winds and rains simply put the fishing on hold," said Akira at True World Tackle. Akira said a few blues and some stripers were caught in New York Harbor, the East River and Norton Point by a few hardy souls. Porgy fishing remained good at Breezy Point and the north side of the bay.

    A start up call to True World Tackle garnered a report of up and down fluke fishing most of the week. Akira said some fluke to 8 pounds were caught around the Verrazano Bridge in the middle of the week and a few nice fish are also caught in New York Harbor off and on but numbers have dropped significantly. Porgy fishing remained solid at Breezy Point, the Chapel Hill Channel and the Rockaway Reef. Sea bass was also good in those areas but with the closed season it was all catch and release. In addition he mentioned pier fishermen along the lower Hudson were into a mix of snappers and cocktails, along with some mixed size stripers after dark.

    This week's report started off with news of some decent fishing this past week from Akira at True World Tackle. Akira said some of the best fishing was on Rockaway Reef where porgies, sea bass and triggerfish kept rods bent. Porgies and triggers were also in good supply at Breezy and Norton's points. The better fluke fishing was on the Middle Grounds, Sandy Hook Reef and Sandy Hook Cannel. Fluke fishing in New York Harbor was decent early in the week, but tapered off later in the week. Anglers fishing from piers along the lower Hudson River were into short stripers and blues ranging from snappers to 3 pounds.

    Akira at True World Tackle said fluke fishing in New York Harbor has started to slow down. However, the exception to the rule was the 13-pound flukeasaurus that Bill Berl caught there during the week and entered it into The Fisherman's Dream Boat contest. Akira told me he fished the Rockaway Reef and enjoyed a good catch of porgies, sea bass, triggerfish, fluke and blowfish. This past week saw some nice fluke catches at the Sandy Hook Reef and Fisherman's Buoy. The Coney Island Flats produced some fast cocktail fishing on several days, while pier fishermen fishing the lower Hudson River piers saw a spotty mix of small stripers and bluefish.

    Akira at True World Tackle told of improved fishing along the northern coast with some of the very best of the fluke fishing in Ambrose Channel and down from Sandy Hook in the ocean. Some striped bass were also caught in the channel and in New York Harbor where Akira said he caught stripers to 20 pounds on a trio of trips this past week. Porgy fishing has been good on the rock piles in the bay, Breezy Point and the Rockaway Reef where sea bass fishing has also been very good. Anglers fishing off lower Hudson River piers are into a mix of porgies, snappers and cocktails. Some mackerel, ling and sea bass are being caught at 17 Fathoms, he added.
