Camp-Site Sports Shop

April 23, 2018:
Carmine over at Campsite Sports told us that the bass have been moving in from the west. The fish have been as far east as Roslyn on the North Shore so far. The shop has been hearing of some very scattered reports of tog taken this week along the North Shore. The fishing on the freshwater scene has still been solid with lots of effort directed towards both the Connetquot and Caleb Smith state parks. Carmine mentioned that the shop is open 7 days a week and is fully stocked with all your tackle needs and you can even get your reels spooled up while you wait.

    Carmine at Campsite Sports told us he's heard of small schoolies in back of the local estuaries like the Connetquot as well as some of the smaller creeks on the Great South Bay. He noted that he hasn't heard of any reports of tog or flounder from the local waters yet. Carmine did say that the freshwater scene has been giving up plenty of action in recent weeks. The Nissy is going full bore at Caleb Smith and the fishing has been solid at Connetquot State Park as well. He added that there has been some trout restocking taking place in some of the local streams and ponds. Carmine said that the shop is open 7 days a week as usual. Most days the shop is open from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. The exceptions are Mondays and Thursdays when they stay open until 8 p.m. and Sundays the shop is open between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.

    Carmine over at Campsite Sports told us that the porgies are all over still. He also mentioned that you need to fight through all the porgies to find any blackfish. Even when you manage to get through all of the scup you'll still find it hard to catch a keeper blackfish. There has been a pretty good bite of stripers at night in Oyster Bay and Bayville. There has been plenty of fish between 29 and 33 inches falling to fly poppers and chunks. The fish have been in the back bay at first light and last light. Albies have been around pretty steady this week. The fish have been hanging to the east of Eatons Neck. Small epoxy jigs and tiny anchovy flies were producing well according to Carmine. Carmine also wanted to let the readers know that the shop will be staying open late during the week. The shop will remain open from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m. Monday to Friday, 10 to 6 on Saturday and 10 to 5 on Sundays.

    Dave over at Campsite Sports told us that they have been seeing some pretty good fishing. He also noted that the water is still hovering at the 70 degree mark so things should really pick up steam when the water finally cools down some. Shop regular Dan fished for blackfish this week and found pretty good results. The fish have been shallow with water from 12 to 15 feet deep giving the most action. He found keepers up to 6-pounds with plenty of shorts mixing in. He has also found some decent sea bass in the mix with the biggest going over 21-inches. The porgies are still all over the place too. Dave noted that the bigger fish are hitting the Hogy Epoxy Jigs. There have been schoolie bass all over according to Dave. He said that you should try fishing the point at Eatons Neck and Cranes Neck Point for them. There are some better fish in the mix too. He has heard about bass up to the 36 inch mark this week. Stripers have also been feeding on peanut bunker inside the River. Dave also said that the blues have been around in good numbers too. He said that they have been inside the harbors, the bay as well as out in the Sound. He mentioned they've been under most of the bunker schools that have still been around. Albies are still running around too. Dave said that they have been at both Eatons Neck and Cranes Neck Point but that the boat traffic has been putting the fish down. He said to try fishing out in the middle of the Sound to catch them where there is a little less boat traffic.

    We heard from the crew over at Campsite Sports that there are plenty of bass and blues around now that the weather has cooled off some. They are both readily taking chunks, lures and flies. A good place to try is the shallows just outside of Huntington Harbor at places like Crab Meadow, Caumsett and off of Sunken Meadow. They have been feeding on both adult and peanut bunker. The blues have been up to 15 pounds and the bass have been between 22 and 30 inches. Porgies and sea bass are still around with some bigger fish being landed. The shop has been hearing of more keeper sea bass coming over the rails and some of the porgies going over the three pound mark. Any rocky area or wreck is where you should be targeting them. The shop has also been hearing plenty of reports of albies being caught. The reports have been most consistent from waters east of Huntington. The blackfish season opener is this Thursday and everyone is ready to go catch them. The shop is ready with all of your tackle needs including rods, reels, jigs and rigs.
