Mike from Star Island Yacht Club let me know it was predominantly a bass game at the point of mixed sizes from schoolies to over 30 pounds and enough slots to be able to find one for the dinner table. Some bluefish are mixed in with the stripers. He also told me just about anything is working for both species but a lot of the anglers are preferring a jig fished in the rips right off the point. The fluke fishing was reported as “tough” with a few able to pick a keeper here of there.

Mike from Star Island Yacht Club let me know striper have been all over the point up to 25 pounds but a lot of the fish are schoolies, into the slot size. Some mixed in 10 to 12 pound bluefish also showed up at the end of the island, in the rips. Mike said “any way you want to catch them” is how they’re getting stripers. He said a lot of the bass feeding on the top on small baits and it was easily identified by bird feeding activity. He knew of a few small bass caught in the harbor as well.

Star Island Yacht Club attracts a wide variety of people with a passion for cruising and fishing year-round. Boaters and fishermen come from all over the Island and and the East Coast to enjoy the excitement of seasonal sport fishing and access to an extensive fleet of charter boats. Star Island is also host to many fishing tournaments, cruising club rendezvous, and catered events, as well as Star Island’s own planned tournaments which includes its renowned annual shark tournament. With its unique resemblance to a star floating on the ocean, Star Island Yacht Cub has come a long way from the boat yard it once was. Sam Gershowitz and his team have transformed it into a prime destination for East Coast boaters. “It’s a beautiful place,” Gershowitz says with pride. “It’s a yacht club and a marina, and we cater to people here.” No marina in the area offers more facilities and services. The Ship’s Store is one of Long Island’s largest tackle shops with bait of every type, an expert staff, marine supplies, marine safety equipment, boat batteries, collectors’ items, groceries, and a full service repair department. Visitors can sit down for a casual breakfast, lunch and dinner at Star Deck Restaurant which serves fresh locally caught seafood, and spend Saturday nights enjoying live poolside music and dancing overlooking Lake Montauk. With all it has to offer, Star Island Yacht Club is an inviting club and marina for all.
