EAST END COD, OFFSHORE SEA BASS AND WEST END HERRING

EAST END COD, OFFSHORE SEA BASS AND WEST END HERRING
With blackfish season now closed and scup and sea bass seasons in their final stages, cod will be taking center stage as we enter the new year.

The Viking Fivestar racked up a very good catch of cod on Saturday raising hopes for a good winter cod run on the East End while the sea bass and porgy action seems to have run its course at Block Island.


If you want herring, go west. The Coney Island and Canarsie piers remain the best bet for putting away some herring for the holidays, but there have also been some decent shots at Magnolia Pier in Long Beach.


Party boats running offshore wreck trips out of Shinnecock, Captree, Point Lookout, Freeport and Sheepshead Bay loaded up on sea bass this weekend and rounded out their catches with a mix of porgies, cod, pollock, ling, haddock and whiting. Some blackfish were still being plucked from inshore reefs and wrecks through Sunday, the last of the New York Bight (South Shore) blackfish season.


On the freshwater side, Connetquot River State Park Preserve continues to surrender good numbers of quality rainbows and brook trout to flyrodders working the river and main pond within the park.
