Fishing Report 06/25/18

The weather has been a little “uncooperative”as of late, however the fishing has been cooperating! Picture above is from yesterday’s trip which produced this nice 40” Striper. In the past week, we ran an exploratory trip to Montauk for Fluke with mixed results. We caught tons of Sea Bass (all released) on 6/21 with a few nice Fluke slabs,  whiting, and a lone Monkfish (pictured below) in the mix.

Also ran a kid’s Trip for Porgies to Montauk with plenty of fish to take home and managed a few short fluke and this nice keeper (below) as well.

Bluefish are still few and far between as the water temperatures are still unseasonably cold. Next week looks like the heat wave will be rolling in which should drastically kick start the local fisheries. Sea Bass finally opened in NY and RI so we will begin aggressively targeting those in the coming months. Striped Bass have been a little challenging but by putting in the time we can get it done! Starting to catch some decent Porgies in the local haunts just in time for our Quarter Day Charters to start. There are also a few nice fluke and some short Sea Bass around locally.

Every day is different!

Thought we would share what trips we are running or planning for the remainder of the season to help you choose the best option.
