Long Island, Metro NY - South Shore Fishing Reports

Long Island, Metro Video Fishing Forecast July 18, 2024

Stripers Steady on East End From the Floor of ICAST This week we report in from the floor of ICAST in Orlando Florida where The Fisherman team is getting a chance to look at the newest products that are either out now or projected to be released by the beginning of 2025. Subscribe our twice-a-week enews to get a look at all of the items we’re able to cover while down here. For the fishing, we heard stripers are still chewing on the eastern end of the island but starting to move a little bit east. The fluke bite in the South Shore bays held steady and moved a little towards the eastern end if anything. Porgies and sea bass remain worthy targets in the Sound. On the offshore scene, yellowfin are still closer to the Canyons but some inshore bluefin have been patrolling just south and east of Montauk Point.
