Take A Shot At Tidal Creek Bass

The month of May can be a magical time for Long Island anglers. The freshwater lakes are bursting with action, doormat fluke lure their faithful to the North and South forks, and the first keeper stripers are already making waves along the South Shore.May 2, 2017

For Doormats Stripbaits Reign Supreme

Many fluke anglers believe that doormat fluke love big baits. I’m one of them, and reports I’ve taken over the years, along with my own log books, prove this theme holds water. For fluke weighing eight pounds or more, long strips of squid, sea robin and bluefish show up time and again in tales of trophy catches, especially during the first few weeks of the season.May 1, 2017

Western Sound May 2017

The Western Long Island Sound is starting to warm up nicely; the Ospreys have been here since early April, catching Bunker, and building their nests. Striped Bass are in Little Neck Bay, Manhasset Bay, Eastchester Bay and Hempstead Harbor also feeding on Bunker. May 1, 2017

Word On The Bite: FINAL TOUCHES TO SPRING FISHING ARSENAL

First Fishing Pole

It’s blowing a blizzard outside, a whiteout as I start writing today and fishing is the furthest thing from my mind. So I thought it would be fun to go in a different direction to keep you entertained and maybe bring some of your own memories to mind. Do you remember your first fishing pole?March 3, 2017

“BASS ACKWARDS” FISHING

It was one of those mornings when nothing was going right. I was late getting up, the sun was already intense and I had left a bagful of new jigs I wanted to try sitting on a stump next to my driveway. March 1, 2017

WINTER COD: KEEP IT SIMPLE

Reports of fair to good codfish action have been the rule across Long Island this winter. Montauk, as is often the case, has seen the most consistent catches but some scores have also been recorded on vessels sailing from Shinnecock, Captree, and Freeport. February 10, 2017
