Saltwaters Tackle

September 24, 2018:
At Saltwaters Worldwide Outfitters in West Islip I heard there are false albies all over the inlet and ocean areas, with Spanish macs in the mix too. Small bass are taking clams and clam chum at the bridges and West Bar. Fluke can be had on the inside – fish the incoming foe the best action. Blowfish are at the Thumb and north side of the bay in the holes. Weakfish are around, but the action slowed. Try the early morning bite in West Channel or near Ocean Beach. Snappers and crabs are all over the docks.

    At Saltwaters Worldwide Outfitters in West Islip I heard there are some fluke around in the bay, with keepers. Weakfish are in West Channel, with worms and jigs and jelly worms working well. The rips have been producing some keeper bass. The best fluke action is the cleaner water near the inlet. Snappers and crabs, with blowfish and kingfish along the bottom sucking down worms and clams.

    At Saltwaters Worldwide Outfitters in West Islip I heard that there are Spanish mackerel around, with tons of weakfish as well. Most of the weakfish are small, and please remember, the limit is one, so rather than even keep one, let it go and let's help rebuild the stock to where it was in the 70's. Anglers have also had a lot of fluke in the bay, albeit small fish. The ocean reefs and wrecks are seeing good porgy and sea bass action. Inside the Thumb, triggerfish and blowfish are all over. The docks are loaded with crabs, and they are large.

    At Saltwaters Worldwide Outfitters in West Islip I heard there are some weakfish around, with best action near West Island, with anglers seeing best action using sand worms and peanut bunker or Gulp baits. Fluke are outside a few miles east of the reef. Some bonito are around on the outside as well. Inside, the fluke action is good on the clean water tide stages, but you have to weed through a lot of shorts for a keeper. For some fun, hit the local docks of crabs or snappers.

    At Saltwaters Worldwide Outfitters in West Islip I heard there were some albies just outside the inlet making for an exciting bite. The fluke action is good in the ocean, while the clean water in the bay has produced as well. The fluke action, and the reef action, has been up and down however, so do not get discouraged if one day it is slow because the same conditions the following day can produce banner results. And, I have heard this from more than one angler! The bay is also loaded with crabs and snappers.
