Fishing Report 05/22/2018

Well we are about a week away from our first charter of the season, and it appears we are timing it perfectly!  Capt. Greg took a break from boat work yesterday and took a quick ride on another boat for a striper recon mission. There are Stripers now showing up in the local haunts (and not just schoolies). Nothing in the way of quantity (YET) as of yesterday but we did release one fish of legal keeper size (30″) on the first drift yesterday. Very encouraging start!

This time of year it is only a matter of days or even hours before things break wide open. Don’t wait for the first pictures from the Petrel to roll in before booking your trip! We live feed our Instagram photos on the website homepage, or you can follow always us on Instagram @fishniantic to watch the action unfold.

 June Charter Availability:

June weekdays are still available. June weekends, not so much. The only dates we have left for June weekends are Sunday June 3rd, and Saturday June 30th. First come first served, so give us a call 8609620103.

Overall, fishing has blasted into “overdrive” during the past week over on Long Island with a mix of everything under the sun. *(Stripers, Fluke, Porgies, Blues, Sea Bass, and a few Weakfish) reported by the local boats making the trek out there. The other extremely encouraging sign is the amount of bait there. Reports of acres of bunker and butterfish in particular. Squid are starting to show and water temps have greatly improved during the past week.

We are offering Full Day Peconic Bay charters the last week of May if you have the itch to get fishing. 6 passengers maximum. These will be mixed bag bottom fishing with a chance to hook into any of the species listed above*. (Note: Sea Bass fishing is closed in NY waters until the end of June so they must be released)
