August 13, 2018:
Bob Rose at Bob's Bait & Tackle in Amity Harbor reported the fluke action was good in the ocean off Fire Island and Jones inlets, mainly around the reefs. There are a lot of porgies and sea bass, with a mix of triggerfish on the reef. Inside the bay, the top of the flood inside the inlets are producing keeper fluke. The local docks are loaded with snappers and crabs.

    Mike from Bob's Bait Shack told me he had a busy week at the store in Winthrop. Hot temperatures have driven many of the bigger stripers to deeper water. Several fish in the 30- to 40- pound range were pulled in from Deer Island in the past few days. Anglers are using a variety of baits including mackerel, pogies and clams. Big schools of pogies continue to get larger around Winthrop Harbor and into Boston Harbor.
