FISHING LOGS: Long Island, Metro NY
North Shore


Posted By Bob Danielson, April 16, 2018
Flounder have begun to stir in the western Sound.
 We are due for a break in the weather and Friday and Saturday were just an omen of better days to come. We saw a couple of days with temps over 60 degrees but just not enough of them to really get things going just yet. The striper season opened on Sunday April 15 and we continue to hear of a decent bite in the Hudson River with schoolies up to 30 inches. I heard of fish starting to show inside Jamaica Bay as well this week. The western bays like Little Neck and Manhasset are giving up plenty of fish too. I have heard of several fish over 10 pounds coming from Little Neck this week although the details on those fish have been sketchy to say the least. Nobody is willing to give too much information this early in the season. We’ll break them down so we can give you the best fishing info there is. It may just take another week or two to happen. The other local action has been towards the population of winter flounder. The mud flats in Oyster Bay and Huntington have been getting the best results so far but a few fish have been reported from the western side of the Sound as well. Don’t forget about the sweet water side of the fishing scene as we’re still hearing about plenty of stockies to be taken as well as the first largemouth of the year.
