Peconic and Shinnecock Fishing Report 5-19-24


The amount striped bass in the Peconics is unbelievable. They are extremely finicky and are feeding on anchovies. Some are taking small rubber shads and paddle tails while others have made the flutter spoons work for them. Most encouraging is the amount of schoolie size fish mixed in after the lack of reports of smaller fish earlier on our beaches. Bluefish are mixed in and tearing up those soft plastic baits. There have been a few fluke taken on jigs meant for the bass as well. Weakfish are still very scarce. The porgies out near Jessups neck continue to please anglers. 


Over at the Ponquogue bridge the striped bass are cooperating and are taking soft plastic baits like Bass Assassins and Fin S fish. The bluefish are mixed in a bit too. The Shinnecock inlet has seen both bluefish and striped bass crashing both artificial and live baits. Fluke have been found in the area at the mouth of the canal and out toward Rumba. 


The Shinnecock canal has seen a good amount of blowfish taking clam and squid baits. Fluke, striped bass and bluefish can be found in the canal as well. Over at the Ponquogue bridge the striped bass and blues have dominated but a few fluke have been in the mix too. The Shinnecock inlet has seen lots of bluefish action from the jetties along with a good amount of striped bass.
