Fluke in the Fog

I had wanted to sneak out today for some fluke fishing, but when I got up, the fog was so thick you couldn't see across the street. I waited a while, and finally with about 1/2 mile of visibility I set off. I ran to a local spot that I had some good intel on, and caught this 5 1/2 lb beauty on the first drift. I stayed for another hour catching lots of short fish. The bite died, and I was home by lunchtime with some nice tasty fillets for dinner tonight. The fish are here, book a trip and come on out.

Wendy's First Fluke of 2018

Went out today with my fiance Wendy, her daughter Nicole, and Andy McGowan. I didn't have much confidence after yesterdays storm, and hard east wind. We set up on the change of the tide, and had a slow steady bite of sea robins, and a few small fluke. Then Wendy got a nice keeper fluke, followed by a seabass (returned due to closed season), and a large bluefish. We moved around a bunch, but the bite never materialized. It should return within a day, do lets get out and do some fishing.

Weakfish are Back!

Went out this morning for a few hours of fluking. Had no luck with the fluke, but we managed some large porgies, and a nice 22" weakfish. We were back at the dock by noon. Give a call, book a trip -the fish are here!

Osprey Takes Flight

Was out this morning after striped bass, and finding nothing but hungry bluefish. So I took out my camera, and shot this great sequence of photos of an Osprey taking flight up close. If you would like to see some of these wonders of out area, book one of our eco-tours and get up close to these wonderful birds of prey.

Bluefish Blitz

After a rainy Saturday, and windy start to Sunday, we noticed the sun was out and the wind was laying down. Took off in search for bass. Found giant schools of bunker in Peconic Bay, and made a few casts. Explosive hookup, and it was monster bluefish. Worked the schools for some great sport with these nasty fighters before we hit some other spots to look for bass. Came up short on bass, but had a blast casting top-waters to blues. Come on out and enjoy the spring run : light tackle and large fish. Dates are available

First Keeper Fluke of the Season

With the sun shining and the wind blowing, we headed out to catch the outgoing tide on the fluke grounds. It was difficult wind against tide conditions, but soon it paid off. After a couple of drifts filled with sea robins, the guys landed two nice fat keeper fluke. A few more shorts were landed before moved on. After a fruitless first drift, again we connected with a nice keeper fish. The water is warming, and these fish are moving in. Come on out and see the bounty of our local waters.

Spring Starter

Went out yesterday for the second day of the spring season. We had tough wind against tide conditions, but it was a start. Started porgy fishing, and it was a steady pick. Moved over to the fluke grounds, and had a little better luck. No keeper fluke, but we had three shorts (better than the day before), and two giant black sea bass, which were released. Another steady slow bite, but that eventually died down. A nice day on the water, and some porgy fillets for some great ceviche. It's only going to get better as the water warms, and the fish move in. Give a call and book a trip.

First Striper of the 2018 Season

With a water temp rise of 5 degrees in a day, and a tip from Capt Craig - I finally found the first fish of the season. Fished yesterdays outgoing tide in the Mako Proskiff, and using soft plastics managed to catch two small schoolie bass. Felt great to get that first fish of the season. With these warm temperatures, the waters should warm, and the fishing should open up. Fluke season starts this friday, and I have dates available for the rest of May. Give a call, and get out for your adventure!
