As we approach the hottest days of summer we also approach the hottest fishing of summer. August and September are two of the best months for great fluke fishing, blue fishing, porgy fishing and believe it or not striped bass fishing.
On the bluefish front they are catching bluefish in all of the harbors from little neck to Manhasset to Hempstead on the long island side and also on the Connecticut side from Larchmont to Mamaroneck to Rye. These bluefish are swimming into the sound chasing the bunker east. Even if you do not see the bunker the bluefish are on the bottom all you need is a chunk of Jack's fresh bunker to catch these blues.
On the striped bass front yesterday July 31st Captain Dan from the Island Current Fleet landed 5 keeper bass to 25 pounds and dropped a few very large fish. This says that the bass are difinately still here in the Western Long Island Sound. For both the blues and the bass Jack's fresh bunker, fresh mackeral, Jack's fresh clam and Jack's Jumbo sandworms are the best bait. Remember chumming is a must to keep the fish around your area!
PS Make sure to come in and sign up for the Greatest Bluefish Contest on Earth. All T-shirts and registration forms are here at Jack's. The contest is Aug. 27-28, 2011.
On the fluke front because of the tremendous amount of bluefish chewing up the bunker large schools of large fluke have invaded the Western Long Island Sound. These fish are being caught from the Whitestone and the Throggs Neck Bridges to all of the points east Hewlett Point, Prospect Point, Matinicock Point, Sands Point and also along the beaches of Bayville, Harts Island, The Blouses, Big Tom, by the City Island bridge, City Island gas dock and along the gravel barges. Best bait of course is Jack's Jumbo spearing and fresh cut sushi grade squid and strips of Jack's fresh bunker. All on fluke rigs, fluke hooks or buck tails. August are the two best months for fluke fishing. We have an extended season this year until the end of September.
So make sure to get out these next 60 days and fish hard for these fluke you may be rewarded with a 15 pounder.
On the porgy front the porgies have been dodging the bluefish for the past few weeks in the areas of New Rochelle, Larchmont, Mamaroneck and Rye also by Sands Point, Prospect Point and Execution Lighthouse. People have been catching their limit fishing in 15-25 feet of water using Jack's Jumbo sandworms, Jumbo bloodworms and Jack's fresh clams. Remember chumming is a must for porgies too.
So for the next 60 days Jack's advice is to fish hard, fish long for a fish on.
Jack's Bait is not a location it is a destination so make it yours!
See You Soon!
