Welcome to the 2008 fall fishing season!
This past weekend Sept. 20 and 21st proved to be an excellent weekend for fishing. The weather was gorgeous the winds were light and the fish they sure did bite... Phil Mazzella and his twin sons were fishing off of Matinicock Point on Sunday and caught a 15 pound weak fish on hi lo rig while fishing for porgies. He also managed to limit out on porgies, bluefish and striped bass. This proved to be one of his best fishing days of the year, stories like this one are not uncommon but they are just kept quiet. Now is the time to get out and get fishing!
Jack's fresh bunker, Jack's jumbo sand and blood worms, Jack's famous fresh skimmer clams and last but not least Jack's fresh frozen chum are all the ticket to your best fishing day. Locations are Matinicock Point, Prospect Point, Bayville, and Sands Point on the Long Island side also Rye, Mammaroneck, New Rochelle and Larchmont on the Connecticut side. Depth of water for porgies right now is about 15 to 25 feet of water remember Sept. 26th is the last day that all recreational and rental boats are able to fish for porgies. You must then get on one of the party boats to catch 45 fish at 11 inches until Oct. 15th.
For the striped bass fisherman we are stocking fresh bunker, fresh skimmer clams and live eels throughout the eintire fall season!
Blackfish season opens Oct. 1st there have been signs already of good blackfishing and Jacks will be stocking all of its famous green crabs, fiddler crabs and Asian crabs. I cannot emphasize enough that now is the time to get out and get your fishing in. Looking forward to seeing you all here at Jack's Bait and Tackle here on City Island in The Bronx and make sure to check out our shop online for all your Grundens foul weather gear at the best price anywhere!
