FISHING LOGS: Long Island, Metro NY
North Shore


Posted By Geoffrey Lawrence, October 15, 2018
A brace of opening week tog caught aboard the James Joseph.
The fall run is gaining momentum so get out there. Let's start out with blackfish. All our sources gave us the same encouraging information. The season is young but the 'tog are biting. There are excellent numbers of fish in the water keeping the rods bent. Party boats working the bottom grounds for scup and sea bass are already encountering 'tog in the by catch. The keeper ratio is low but a couple of 7-pounders came up among the keepers. Anglers have been scoring with green crabs and jigs. Porgies are still active from one end of the Sound to the other; City Island to the mouth of the river. A massive 5-pound scup was drilled at Glen Island. Sea bass are getting larger and a party boat had biscuits to 4-pounds. Snappers and cocktail blues haven't quit and the cocktails are the good eating 3 to 5-pounders. Bass and blues are gathering at the Triangle.
