As we get deeper into the fall the water temperature continues to drop there are readings of 55 and 57 degree water temperatures which makes for a good bite especially for the blues, the bass and the blackfish.
On the blackfish front reports of fish to 10 and one half pounds which were weighed in here at Jack's have been caught in water depths from 10-50ft of water. This is a large span of water depth most are concentrating in depths of 10-30ft. Best bait has been fiddler crabs, green crabs, fresh clams and Asian crabs. Best areas are Pea Island, Huckleberry Island, Hens and Chickens, Rye, Mamaroneck, Larchmont and anywhere east along the Connecticut shorelines as far east as Norwalk. Looking for structure, rocky bottom, or quick drop offs are best.
Bluefish and striped bass have also been caught inside all the harbors, Hempstead, Manhassett, Larchmont, Mamaroneck and further east all on Jack's famous fresh bunker.
As we get closer to the end of October and into November the water temperatures will continue to drop which will cause the bite to get faster and more aggressive on all fronts for bluefish, blackfish and striped bass.
Take advantage of every nice fishing day.
Jack's boat rentals will be in the water until the middle of November and the party boats will be sailing into December.
See You Soon!
