Photo Gallery June 20, 2022 by STAFF Jessup Neck in Peconic Bay was the place to be during the month of May for fishing. Among many other species, some sizable stripers were caught. Kyle Clausen got in on the action with this caught and released 30-pounder. Moriches Bay located on the South Shore of Long Island filled in with bluefish anywhere from 2 to over 15 pounds. This caught by Nick Balestracci on a midday trip using a Savage Gear Panic Pencil was about the average size this spring. Roland Rivera fished around Bird Island in Moriches Bay and caught a bass and a bluefish for the dinner table using whole clam as bait with circle hooks so that he stayed in compliance with the law. Out of Mt. Sinai by buoy 9 Jonny Bohlman boated this weakfish while targeting striped bass. Talk about a great bonus fish. Photo courtesy of Ralphs Fishing Station. Eight-year-old Matthew Rose caught his largest striper to date—a fish of nearly 40 pounds fooled using a live bunker in the Long Island Sound. He won’t ever forget this first. Not far from some great fishing is the Silly Lilly Fishing Station who offer an array of different boat rental options for the day to get you out on the water to catch dinner. Christian Patina trolled Peconic Bay right before sunset and hooked into this striper that he sent back after a quick picture. The bay is one of the only places on the island where you can realistically catch an array of different species in a very short amount of time. Joe Lugo landed this bass in the Western Sound while fishing with some of FDNY’s finest. The fish was safely released after a picture.
