Shinnecock & Peconic Fishing Report 5-29-22
The fluke are beginning to cooperate in the western side of the bay. Wind and tide together are key, gulp, spearing, squid all working. Work the warmer water. Bluefish are near the Ponquogue bridge and the Shinnecock inlet taking diamond jigs, tins and poppers. Fish are in the 10lb range. Striped bass are at the Ponquogue bridge taking soft plastics and plugs. The clam bellie chumming is working well too. Most fish are in the 30" range.
The porgies are at Rogers rock and up at Jessups. Weakfish are mixing with the porgies too. Blues are moving throughout the bay taking tins. The striped bass are in the rips near Jessups and near the south ferry.
The Shinnecock canal has a good amount of action with fluke and bluefish at the south end and porgies and blowfish to the north. The Shinnecock inlet continues to hold the bluefish on a daily basis. Tins and poppers are the lures of choice. The Ponquogue bridge has blues and bass. (Ponquogue bridge area is closed to car traffic due to a new water main installation but is open to foot traffic. You must park in the ocean beach parking lot across the street and walk in.) The ocean beaches are holding striped bass on the night tides.
