The opening week of flounder season has started out on somewhat of a decent note, most anglers able to land maybe one or two flounders fishing in the shallow waters of Eastchester Bay, Orchard Beach Lagoon also in the back of Country Club in the Bronx and in the backs of the harbors of Larchmont, Mamaroneck and Greenwich. The best bait is sandworms, bloodworms, muscles and clam chum. Plenty of chum seems to be producing more flounder and stirring up the bottom gets them to awaken from the mud. Along with the flounder there has been a good amount of striped bass being caught with fish up to 28 and 29 inches have been caught in Eastchester Bay, Turtle Cove, along the East River and up and under the George Washington Bridge towards the Hudson River. The New York Striped Bass Season opens up April 15th. The Hudson River Striped Bass Season has been open since March 16th and they are also doing well there with fish between 28 and 38 inches. Best bait are sandworms, bloodworms, fresh clams and artificial lures such as rattle traps, poppers and swim baits. Jack's Bait and Tackle will be stocking fresh bunker starting April 14th.
