Saltwaters Tackle

November 20, 2017:
At Saltwaters Worldwide Outfitters in West Islip I heard that anglers are still catching good numbers of bass. Anglers had fish on the West Bar and inlet area, and outside in 30 to 50 feet of water. There are shad on the inside which produced larger bass. Blackfish action is okay, but no real large fish. The shop will be open all year, with rod and reel repairs (only certified Van Staal repair shop in NY) and other services. Have a safe and happy holiday season, and stop by any day after the season to drop off your gear for servicing.

    At Saltwaters Worldwide Outfitters in West Islip I heard there are bass everywhere, with gold Diamond Jigs, Mojo's on the troll and on the bunker pods near the beach all producing quality fish. Inside, the West Bar, along South Beach and back near the CG Station and points east are also producing well. Blackfish are still holding strong at the Kismet Reef and the Moses Bridge.

    At Saltwaters Worldwide Outfitters in West Islip I heard there are bass all over. Bass are taking Diamond Jigs, clams on the bar, eels after dark are working as well as live baits by day. A bass of 42 pounds, caught by the father and son team of William Sr. and Jr. came in on Saturday. The blackfish bite is good with green crabs, Gulp baits and clams are all accounting for shorts and keepers.

    At Saltwaters Worldwide Outfitters in West Islip I heard of a 19-pound, 8-ounce bluefish was weighed in Saturday afternoon. Bass action is good, while weakfish are in the Sore Thumb pocket. The north side of the bay is producing bass on the bunker pods. Fish to 20 pounds has been the top fish. Blackfish action is good, but you have to work through shorts for a keeper. Off Bay Shore Marina Dock, some school bass were also caught.

    At Saltwaters Worldwide Outfitters in West Islip I heard there are bass on bunker pods and anglers have scored well. Guys!!!! If you are going to snag bunker, reel it in, re-rig on a circle hook to drop the mortality rate down... please. The shop had bass to 42 pounds weighed in this week. On Saturday Thomas Kelly had a 12-pound, 1-ounce blackfish from the FI area. Shad have also shown, while weakfish remained good near Ocean Bay Park.
