Storms Deteriorate Shoreline - Weekend Fishing in New England

Right now, Mother Nature has Long Island in its grasp and is throwing relentless wind, waves and cold weather towards our shorelines. A couple of areas along the island’s South Shore have been in the spotlight and Managing Editor Matt Broderick travels to them to get the latest videos from the scene. We would also like to remind you that if you don’t have the time to travel somewhere warm like Florida for fishing this winter, you can always head up north for some top-notch freshwater and stay overnight relatively cheap. New England’s Managing Editor Dave Anderson lets us know the details in a short feature video. For those anticipating show season, we’re happy to announce that the New York Boat Show will be taking place from 26th to the 30th and the Route 110 Fishing Flea Market will also be taking place on the 30th. All links and information are in the video forecast.
