Recent subscriber catches from around the island highlighting the quality striper fishing taking place.

If you’ve been following along with the Fisherman Magazine’s reports, you have an idea of how good the striper fishing has been around the entire island. The entire South Shore is seeing an impressive run of big fish feeding around the bunker pods, taking rigged livies on circle hooks and larger spook-style plugs while the North Shore is hosting a quality jig bite fueled by the smaller baits in the water up that way anywhere from the western reaches, all the way out to The Race. Reports from Montauk are consistently indicating exceptional striper fishing on a mix of different size classes with all methods working.

Richard Ugolini fished just east of Debbs Inlet for this 51-inch striper that he caught in a little over 20 feet of water jigging right outside of a bunker pod. After a quick photo the big striper was sent back with a healthy release.
Ella Lanza was able to catch and release this 39-inch striper out of Oyster Bay with a flutter spoon right before sunset on a glass-like evening.
While fishing on his grandfather’s boat 9-year-old Billy Tuthill caught this oversized striper in the Huntington area of the Long Island Sound. After a quick photo the fish was sent back healthy with a strong release.
The ocean bite out of Debs inlet has been hot and Mike Onufrey shows us why with this 48-inch striper he trolled up just southwest of it.

While fishing with Fisherman video fishing forecast correspondent Rich Von Olen, Bill Misitano jigged up this overslot striper that was released after a quick fight. In total they had eight fish on the day between the two of them while fishing the western portion of Long Island’s South Shore.
