November 20, 2017:
At Star Island Yacht Club, John reports wind and more wind has made it tough for anglers to get to their destination on most days. On the days anglers are able to sail, blackfish remains real good around Fishers Island, while sea bass hunters are finding no shortage of jumbos south of Block Island. There are also plenty of big scup and some cod mixed with the sea bass. The entire staff at Star Island send their Season Greetings to staff and readers of The Fisherman Magazine.

    At Star Island Yacht Club, Ben reports excellent blackfish action at Shagwong Point, Fishers Island with the Block Island area beginning to pick up momentum. Speaking of Block Island, cod, sea bass, scup and a whole lot of green eye monsters (dogfish) are all competing for clam baits. If you can find a clean piece of bottom without the doggies, plenty of sea bass and market cod will keep the rods bent. Striped bass have seen better days. There are some bass around, but you'll have to be at the right place at the right time to catch a few.

    At Star Island Yacht Club, Ben reports striper fishing has slowed down considerably. However if you troll wires and tubes around the point at particular stages of the tide, odds are good of putting some teen size bass in the box. More than likely, short bass will dominate the catch. Blackfish are chewing well by Fishers Island, but it's quite a run for a few keepers. Block Island, Outer Cartwright and the CIA Grounds all have jumbo sea bass and cod when the weather allows them to sail.

    At Star Island Yacht Club, Cap. Lou Rosado reports bass fishing was okay this week, with the best of the bite occurring by Block Island. Sea bass and scup are pretty much in the same area as the stripers and are of quality. Blackfish action was better this week as Mike Ajello of the "Susan A" had nine keeper to 10 ponds. The false albacore bite is at its best right now from the jetties to the Lighthouse.

    At Star Island Yacht Club, Ben reports the striper fishing remains insane again this week as everyone are easily coming back to the tables with limits of bass to well over 40 pounds. In fact, the "Tommy-Chris" had 30 bass on Thursday night including one over 50 pounds. The crew released all but three of the smallest bass, which were kept for the table. So folks, we know there is at least one 50 pounder swimming around at Montauk. Sunday's sea bass opener for many of the charter boats found crazy good biscuit fishing just outside the federal line with many fish between 4 and 6 pounds. Porgies are abundant close to the harbor as are the blackfish. As for the togs, those anglers that know a bit more than 101 are scoring very well with boat limits to 11 pounds, while the 101 clan will have to wait for falling water temperatures. Albacore and blues are all over the place.
