The Snappers are In !!!!
Yes!!! The snappers are in; so grab some poppers and some spearing and head down to the canal. The best time to fish there is when the lock are closed; so be sure to check the schedule before you head out.
On the fluke front, the ocean bite is getting better every day. Squid and spearing on a high/low rig in about 90 ft. of water is where they have been. The bay is still producing fish as well. Mostly on the west side of the bridge, but I have heard if some fluke out of the basket and the east cut.
The Ponquogue bridge has been holding some stripers on the night tides and some blue and fluke during the day.
Stripers are making a showing at the Shinnecock inlet as well. Clams, eels, bunker and spot are all working; along with bucktails with a trailer and green diamond jigs.
The guys on the sand beaches are picking up some schoolie stripers at dawn and dusk on the same baits and lures.
The Shinnecock reef and the other pieces and rock piles out front have had some nice sized seabass come over the rails along with a few porgies too.
Peconic Bay porgy bite has been pretty good as of late, with Rodgers Rock and Jessups Neck doing really well. Anchor up with some clam baits and plenty of clam chum and you'll have a blast.
Mako's, Blue's, Hammerhead's, Brown's, and Thresher's all being caught just offshore in about 140 to 180 ft .
Bluefin and Yellow's are coming up too. Green Machine bars and daisy chains seem to be the color of choice this summer.
Good luck and tight lines.
