With this week's warm weather, the bite has definitely improved. Striped bass are being caught in the back bays and creeks but there are a few along the ocean beach and inlets too.The striper's have been taking white 3/4 oz. bucktails as well as bone and chicken scratch swimming plugs. Porgies are over at Jessup's Neck taking clams and sandworms but you have to chum heavy for them. The Shinnecock canal is holding some nice size fluke (opens May 17) and some weakfish to 8 lbs. The Ponquogue bridge has got some keeper bass; most are falling to bucktails and small rubber baits ,but clams are working too.
