Shinnecock's Local Fishing Headquarters

August 30, 2018

Despite the heat, people are still going fishing; and with some decent luck too.

The ocean fluke bite has been steadily getting better. The better bite has been to the east of the inlet in 60 to 90 feet of water. A high/low rig with spearing and  6" Gulp! grubs is the t...

The fluke action has been good this past week. The east cut and the basket are producing some quality fish; as well as the ocean. Anywhere from 60 to 90 feet of water to the east of the inlet. The reef and wrecks are holding some good sized porgy and seabass with some...

The fluke bite has been spotty this past week. The east cut, west cut, the basket and Rampasture all have fish; but most are shorts. Spearing and squid is your best choice for these guys. The ocean bite has only started to pick up this week with the warm temperatures....

Large stripers have been moving down the ocean beaches chasing the bunker schools. Snag and drop has been the best method, but trolling Mojo rigs through the schools is working too. The Ponquogue bridge is also holding some bass. Clam bellies for chum and whole clams o...

Fathers Day is this Sunday and the weather forecast looks awesome. 

Shinnecock Bay is really lighting up. The stripers are hitting at the bridge on clams and chum and in the inlet on eels and bucktails. Outgoing tide is best; but they're hitting on the incoming as well....

Shinnecock Bay: Fluke is best on the west side of the bridge; but the east cut and the basket area seem to be picking up. Small bucktails tipped with spearing is all you need. Stripers are being caught in and around the Ponquogue bridge; heavy clam chum with whole clam...

As the summer moves in; the fish are settle into their normal haunts. The fluke bite is best on the western side of Shinnecock; from Rampasture point to buoy 9. Light tackle, 3/4 oz bucktails tipped with squid or Gulp makes for some great action.

Striped bass are moving...

As you go out this weekend; please remember those that made the ultimate sacrifice.

Now, on to the fishing.

Peconic Bay: The Greenlawns has been producing some quality fluke. Rodgers Rock and Jessups Neck has got an awesome porgy bite. Weakfish are still around, just run...

The reports are coming in from Moriches inlet to Shinnecock. The bluefish have finally made their showing on the east end and good sized ones too. The fluke bite has turned on in Shinnecock bay as well as weakfish. The Shinnecock canal is producing some good sized stri...

Well, it apears that the fish like the warm weather just as much as the fisherman. Everything is bitting. With the porgy opener on Tuesday, the boats in the Peconics were loaded and many were dinner plate sized.

 The south shore beaches are seeing schoolie bass with mor...
