Hey how you doing out there in the fishing world!?!
As we approach the summer season all species of fish in the western long island sound will begin to increase in catch.
ON the fluke front they have been catching fluke to five pounds by the bridges~Throggs Neck and The Whitestone, the barges, along Country Club and Silver Beach, Harts Island on boththe south and north end, Prospect Point and Sands Point, Matinecock Point and all the Bayville Beaches. Another good spot is right behind Jack's in the Eastchester Bay between the City Island Bridge and the gas dock. Best bait is Jack's spearing, sand eels, squid and fresh bunker filets~putting this bait on either a buck tail or a fluke rig will work well. Best depth of water 15-50ft. with the larger fish being caught in deeper water.
ON the bluefish front plenty of bluefish between 8 and 12 pounds are being caught between Stepping Stone and Throggs Neck Bridge, behind Execution Lighthouse and also in the mouth of Hempstead Harbor and Manhasset Bay. So Anchor up, chunk a bunker, drop it into 15-50ft. of water and remember chumming is a must!
ON the striped bass front fish to 45 pounds have been weighed in at Jacks all caught on Jack's fresh bunker or live bunker. Best depth of water is 15-50ft. The bass are swimming under the pods of bunker and you must get your bait~especially if it is live bunker~to the bottom. Best areas are Throggs Neck, Hempstead Harbor, behind Execution Lighthouse, New Rochelle, Larchmont, Mamaroneck and Rye. June will be the best month for big bass so get prepared, be ready and be sure to send all pictures in to Jacks even if it is catch and release take a picture,release and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Pictures are worth a thousand words.
ON the porgy front the party boats have been doing very, very well they have been traveling further to the east to find the fish. Best bait is Jack's sandworms, bloodworms and Jack's sure catch fresh clams. Chumming is a must! The porgies will be moving closer to City Island as the month of June goes on but right now they are in deeper water and on pieces and structure instead of the bottom.
With the cooler water temperatures this year the fishing season will extend making the fishing phenomenal!
