Shinnecock & Peconic Report 5-8-22
The bay has some fluke up in the skinny water where it's warmer. Jigs with gulp or spearing/squid on hi-lo rigs will do the job. A few bluefish falling for tins around the inlet. Schoolie to just keeper bass in the back bay areas taking plugs, sp's and mag darters. These fish are coming to those who put in the time. This bite is by no means hot but the fish are here. Outgoing tides after a sunny day will produce best this time of year.
The porgies are chewing good out at Jessups Neck. Weakfish, bluefish and bass are beginning to mix in as well. Porgies are taking clam and worms along with some clam chum to get them under the boat. Fluke reports from the Greenlawn area have been quiet as they have the last few years. Best bet locations to target are Jessups, Rogers Rock and Roses Grove.
Shinnecock canal has a lot of life as it usually does each spring. A good amount of keeper fluke have made it to the coolers. Weakfish, striped bass, bluefish and of course sea robins. The Shinnecock inlet has seen a few schoolie bass and bluefish are showing up too. Blues are taking tins and the bass are taking bucktails. The banks of Quogue canal have seen some weakfish, bass and fluke. Venture out to the ocean beaches and with some time you may connect with a bass on a tossed bucktail.
