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.

On the fishing side of things, overall opportunities have slimmed down in the last couple of weeks for stripers. You can still target them for catch and release with the best options being tidal creeks and rivers. Use light rods with small lures or soft plastics for some light tackle fun. Some back bays and sand beaches may have a few schoolies as well. Dont forget white perch are a great option for land based anglers during the cold months too. And for those herring enthusiasts, remember these fish will be hitting docks, taking Sabiki rigs presented to them.
