Jim Flora of Miller Place Bait and Tackle spoke of porgy and sea bass being caught off Old Field Point and Cranes Neck on clams, worms and squid, however more blackfish by the day are appearing from these areas which bodes well for the start of the tog season. Please note that Jim and Sue are ready to go with all your bait and tackle for blackfish season. Stop on by and say hello.

Jim at Miller Place Bait and Tackle said bluefish have been caught over at Cedar beach in the mornings and evenings on tins and topwater. By the Rocky Point stretch some nicer bass are falling for topwater plugs around the same times and swimming plugs after dark.

Sue Flora of Miller Place Bait and Tackle told me that porgies and sea bass remains thick at Cranes Neck, Old Field Point, and the Middle Grounds. Worms, clams, and squid strips are all accounting for good catches of the bottom dwellers as are the use of jigs. Striped bass and bluefish remains solid at the Middle Grounds on diamond jigs and surface poppers. Porgies and sea bass are also being taken around buoy nine. Snappers are still in the harbors and are big, hitting spearing, poppers, and jigs. With blackfish season a little more than a week away, Jim and Sue will be armed and ready with all your bait and tackle needs for a fall season that looks to be epic.

The crew at Miller Place Bait and Tackle strives to help their fishing community. Store owner, Jim, began fishing the waters around Long Island at a young age. Growing up on the island he spent many days on the water and in the surf fishing for an array of species. He recalls with fondness long summer days fishing for fluke and the frigid cold of winter nipping at his face while targeting cod. His greatest love, however, is striper fishing and the thrill of the hit, battle and release of a big bass. Stop on by the shop and share some fishing stories. Jim always want to hear about “the one that got away”!
