Bob’s Bait and Tackle

Bob from Bob’s Bait and Tackle let me know nothing on the open beach yet but the back areas are loaded with schoolie stripers everywhere including the pier at Tanner Park, any of the docks in Amityville and all of the local creeks. Worms have been the number one choice for the bait fishermen while small popping plugs from Yo-Zuri and soft plastics in the 4-inch range have been the best bets for those looking to use artificials.

Bob Rose at Bob's Bait and Tackle in Amity Harbor reported bass are all over the bay with anglers scoring well using soft plastics, hard baits, worms and clams by boat and off the docks and piers. There are some blackfish at the deeper water wrecks, but you need a day of weather to be able to get there! The shop is fully loaded for stripers, blackfish and flounder, with all the rigs you need for fluke when the season opens the 4th of May.

Bob from Bob’s Bait and Tackle let me know the canals around Amityville have had a few small stripers showing themselves rolling on bait. Bay Shore and Sayville dock areas are beginning to show a little bit of action for those soaking blood or sandworms at the top of the tide.

Bob Rose at Bob's Bait and Tackle in Amity Harbor reported there are a lot of small stripers taking poppers and small soft plastics. The fish are throughout the bay and State Channel, with some fish in the local canals as well. A few anglers had blackfish and cod on the outside reef and wrecks, with clams doing the work. The shop is open and fully stocked for blackfish, flounder, stripers and fluke when the season opens the 4th of May.
