Solid Sea Bassing - Fluking Continues To Improve

We know plenty of fishing will be taking place during the extended weekend coming up and there’s plenty of fish around to be caught. Both the South Shore bays and Montauk are seeing an improvement in the fluke bite while the sea bass season opener started off well with good catches around the island. Montauk remains hot for stripers once again going into this weekend with more fish over 50 pounds reported. Contributors also check in this week with the best options heading into the holiday. Whether you’re heading out on the water this weekend or watching fireworks at home, enjoy the holiday and stay safe.
