Shinnecock & Peconic Fishing Report 7-17-22
The fluke bite in Shinnecock has slowed to a grind. There are fish to be had but you will need to work for them. Western Shinnecock seems to be holding a few good fish while the eastern bay is also holding some fish but also a good amount of robins. Both tides are working, just need to move around a lot. The striped bass are still near the bridge and in the inlet for those drifting live baits. Not a lot of fish but enough to keep you interested. Outside the inlet try the reef for a mix of seabass, porgies and a few fluke. The area off the cheese house has a few fluke around 60' but not a big payday by any means. The bunker schools are holding sharks more than anything at this point. Starting to hear of some snappers.
It seems the further east you go the better things get. The porgies have scattered but I'm sure a good amount of clam chum should get them under the boat.
The canal has some porgies to the north and a few fluke to the south. Got our first reports of snappers in the canal. The Shinnecock inlet still holding some triggerfish, bass, blues and a couple fluke. The Ponquogue bridge is holding bass, porgies and a few fluke. Our ocean beaches have seen a few bass taking clams and the sharks are there as we all know from our local news.
