Big John's fishing report

Striped bass fishing is the best it has been in 40 years fish from 25-55 pounds and better! The best bait is fresh or live bunker the bigger bass are biting just on the heads. The fish are so schooled up right now that you don't have to sink the bait to the bottom the fish will come up to the top on chunks. Blues are mixed in with the bass but you have to wait out the bluefish bite and as soon as the tide turns is when the bass come alive. The night bite right now is best! Fluke and porgies are also going very well so if you can get away from the blues and bass the porgies are being caught on sandworms, bloodworms, fresh clams and dont' forget to use plenty of clam chum to keep them around the boat. Big porgies between 1-3 pounds are the norm caught by Prospect Point, Sands Point, Mantinicock, Bayville, Oyster Bay, Rye and Mamaroneck. They are catching fluke on spearing, squid and sand eels by all the points, bridges, barges, Hart Island and the blouses. For every 2 people there are 2 keepers over 20 1/2 inches being caught.

The fishing is heating up in the Long Island Sound! How are you doing in this heat wave? Come on down to a VERY COOL Jack's Bait and Tackle today!

See You Soon!
