REPORT 9-13-20

First I want to say sorry for the lack of reports for the past month, we were quite busy in the shop and I had to prioritize things and August's reports are pretty repetitive anyway. Here we go into some of the best fishing of the season, the fall run!! Shinnecock Bay/Inlet/Ocean The fluke bite has really turned on in the bay. The bite was great west of the bridge but has now seemed to spread further to the eastern areas and near the inlet. They are feasting on the huge bait clouds throughout the bay. Pick your bait, spearing, squid, peanut bunker, snappers and gulp are all putting fish in the box. The other good news is the robins are beginning to thin a bit. The cocktail bluefish are chasing bait as well and can be found around the bridge and the inlet, anything shiny should temp them to bite. The albies have made there way to town and have been moving in on the incoming tides for the most part but that can change overnight. The albies will take "resin jigs" by Joe Baggs, 'albie jigs" by Daddy Mac and "slim waves" (deadly dicks) by Tsunami all in stock in good supply in our shop. Schoolie striped bass continue to bite on the night tides in the western bay taking top water baits. Those who put in the time have been rewarded with a few keepers. Porgies are at the base of the old bridge and taking clams. Out on the reef the fluke were starting to cooperate but the conditions now and for the next week it looks like will not be adequate to get out the inlet. The tuna bite near the Coimbra slowed but still had some action while the Ranger area was on fire earlier in the week. We had reports of trophy size bluefins and yellowfin to 90lbs. The bluefin were taken on the jig and yellow on the troll. Lets hope they stick around for a bit.  Peconics Seems to be coming back to life after the bathtub like temps of July and August. The weakfish have shown a very promising resurgence with reports of many keeper size fish being caught in some of the old haunts of the deeper holes, and also in Noyac bay. Hi-lo rigs with flags of squid have done very well.  We have also heard of a good amount of kingfish, blowfish and porgies around Robin's Island and up near Jessup's neck. With conditions as they are out in the ocean, now is a good time to hunt for some pcs and maybe find a few seabass for the box. Shorebound The Shinnecock canal has been fairly quiet but does have some small seabass and blowfish stealing baits along with a few snappers. The Ponquogue bridge has reports of fluke, porgies, cocktail blues and schoolie bass on the night tides. Over at the Shinnecock inlet the report is good. Fluke, porgies, triggerfish, cocktail blues, schoolie striped bass and the albies are all cooperating. The ocean beaches east and west of the inlet report schoolie bass and cocktail blues. As we turn to the fall with the cooler nights we should see more action on our beaches as the bait begins to move out of the bays.
