STRIPERS HEAT UP

Posted By Bob Danielson, June 11, 2018
STRIPERS HEAT UP
Striper fishing is hot in the western Sound with the night bite yielding some big fish.
I’d like to start off by wishing all the dads out there a Happy Father’s Day. I know we all deserve a little fishing time in between all of the fishing that we do. Like the saying goes “Born to Fish and Forced to Work!” The striper fishing has been red hot again this week. We’ve gotten reports of small schoolies to fish well over 30 pounds. I don’t see that changing for the very near future either. Trolling is still producing the bigger fish but chunks are also taking quite a few fish over 30 pounds too. Porgies have been ready to eat a piece of clam or a worm without hesitation as we’ve heard this week too. The fish are still all over with some smaller fish beginning to mix in with all of the big spawning fish. We heard mixed reports of fish still staying shallow and then others having them moving off of the beach. Fluke fishing is very good towards the middle of the Island while both the west and east ends of the North Shore have been spotty. There are plenty of fish but they’ve been mostly shorts. We’re still getting very sporadic reports of bluefish across the Island. The South Shore is still seeing some big choppers and the western Sound is seeing a few but east of Huntington has very little bluefish action so far and this is pretty late in the game for them to show up but Moses did part the Red Sea so we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
