Fluking is heating up in Montauk. Ryan Williams decked this 8.2 pounder on the Lazybones.
Fishing was a bit of a rollercoaster ride this week depending on where you choose to wet a line. It was probably easier to play the board game Scrabble than trying to figure out the inconsistency of the striper and fluke chew off Montauk. I heard a lot of excuses this week, but the bottom line is it can’t be cake and ice cream every week. On the positive side, we are only a few warm days and better tide conditions away from both the striper and fluke fishing breaking away from sporadic and becoming consistent. Until that day or hour arrives, there is plenty going on elsewhere as the area of Sag Harbor remains red hot for stripers to 42-1/2 pounds. The only drawback this week is that you are going to have to use some sort of live bait like eels or bunker. Reason being is that the dogfish have moved into the area to spawn and cut baits or chunks are just what they are looking for to satisfy their insatiable appetites. Nonetheless it is still not enough to deter anyone serious about slamming a big bass. Therefore with that said, striped bass from all the points that are adjacent to Sag Harbor is this week’s best bet. If you are interested in cashing in and have access to a trailered boat, read this week’s South Fork Tight Lines Bait and Tackle report about a free public boat ramp that is located right in the heart of the action. In other news, scup fishing remains unscathed, while the Shinnecock bite for both fluke and stripers are making big strides in recent days. The North Fork action is also quite solid with fluke, scup, stripers and blues all keeping anglers smiling.
