Fishing Report:
Did a magic Hour fluke trip from 5-9 PM yesterday. Experienced almost ideal conditions (if we had the wind out of a slightly more westerly direction and just a tad stronger it would have been prefect). As it was I was able to box two keeper fluke to 20”s. Caught @20 shorts. Only two other keepers were boated (although short action kept everyone’s rod bent)-also by the same person, who also won the pool with a 21”er (caught seconds after I caught my big one). All my fish came via dragging bait-either a killies or spearing.

Fishing Report:
I was off from work yesterday, and Savannah is out of school for now until her summer program gets started. When my doctor's appointment was done we had a bit of free time. I asked her do you want to go to the playground or do you want to go fishing? She yelled FISHING! She has been asking me for a year now so I said let me test the waters.

I picked up some clam and bunker from the bait shop (scooping out a rod I can buy her) then we hit the beach. I got her set up with one of my porgy rigs on my 7' and I set bunker out on my 12', while I used my 9', and a skinner rig for fluke. At one point I went to change my bunker bait and this fluke was on my hook. Savannah was excited about that but really wanted to catch a fish on her rod. She only had crabs take interest in her clam and was a bit upset no fish was caught on her rod. I tried to convince her that we caught that fluke together, sometimes we may not catch a fish when we go, and today was a good day because we were on the beach together fishing. She said she still enjoyed fishing but next time she want to go to the playground...fare enough. I spoke with my Dad afterwards and he gave me some good pointers for next time if she will continue fishing...she's a Antoine so I'm feeling good that there will be a next time...Stay Bent!

Fishing Report:
The time of year/season has come for me to start pushing my way East because fishing from shore in the West has become spotty unless you have a boat or a Kayak. The fish seem to spend more time in the cooler waters about a mile off shore in the west...story of a surfcasters season. I go where the fish are so it's nothing for me to be found in the Central south shores of Long Island, and beyond now.

I'm not big on fishing for Fluke. I think it has a lot to do with there fight or the lack of it. I also feel like it might have to do with the fact that fluking is primarily a daytime affaire...I don't see the sun often while I'm fishing. However this season I foresee a bit of a change. This is the second one I've caught this season and I'm noticing they can be quite aggressive. I was casting a hammered A47 with no tail at the tip of a jetty for Bluefish after I was done hunting for bass with Joe (we finally got to fish together) on some structure were both fond of...I caught one healthy 8lbs bass that I elected not to take a photo of given the circumstances...back to this fluke.

This Fluke hit the A47 hard! felt like a bass hit but when I felt no weight or fight I knew I had an odd catch. I've had fluke hit my SS Bottle before so I wasn't too surprised about hooking this fluke in the mouth...makes me want to buy a Groupon to half day Fluke on a party boat...hey you can't beat paying $20-$24 for a four to five hour trip with a five fish bag limit. So far my efforts to catch them from shore has produced nothing but sea robins but I have only given that 30 minutes twice. Given I'm rarely found fishing when the sun comes up who knows when I will be able to put more time into Fluking. But I feel my interest growing more than ever so we shall see said the blind man...Stay Bent!

Fishing Report:
Dad and I wanted to get on a skiff to see what we can catch this time of year in the Western North Shore of Long Island…not our “annual skiff fishing adventure but more of us checking our spots this time of year. We started out trolling some deep diving lures. Dad had a Repala X Rap in the bunker color on his conventional; while I had a Tsunami metal lip in the yellow color that I bent the eye up to dive deep on my 6’6 spinning out fit…I was hoping a bass would go for my offering as it swam a bit higher than the X rap. Dad caught a 6lb Bluefish while we trolled, and noting noticed my metal lip. We were targeting Striped Bass, Bluefish, Porgy, and Fluke. We have spot’s in various places of the sound we like to catch them all. Dad and I visited them all for not even a tap. No fish touched the Bunker or clam we bought from Jacks, and surprisingly we saw none except one or two break the surface far apart from each other close to the middle grounds.

We had 15 to 30 minutes left before we needed to have the skiff back so we stopped at the Fluking grounds on the way in. The first Drift yielded me my first Fluke of the 2016 season…a keeper at 19” caught on my Skinner/gulp rig. Dad and I did all that we should have done to catch more fish but it just turned out to one of those nice days on the water with my Dad…But we each caught a fish so I can’t be mad…Stay Bent!

Fishing Report:
One night while fishing for Striped bass I got a hit on my bottle (Super Strike little neck swimmer) except this felt more like I picked up some weed…I’m not feeling the pulsations, and my rod has a slight bend to it. I reel my lure in and couldn’t believe my eyes. I caught a nine to twelve inch Fluke! This fish went after a lure that is just under its total length. At first I thought I snagged it but this lure floats, and the rear hooks were perfectly in his mouth (zoom in on photo) This was my first Fluke I’ve caught this season out of the two attempts I made and I caught one when I wasn’t even trying…too funny I tell ya.

Fishing Report:
This is the 10lbs Fluke Joe caught at one of his spots on a previous trip. I just got skunked an hour and a half earlier on one of my solo night time trips and I wanted to join him on his fluke adventure where he caught that same fish. I haven’t done much fluking from shore so I took advantage of the opportunity even though I didn’t have with me the fluke outfit I normally use on the boats with my Dad. So what I did was I used my trusty 9’ and put the Skinner rig, chartreuse gulp on I never take out of my surf bag. On the boats Dad and I use squid skirts, 1oz white bucktail, gulp on the bottom, and a 3/0 bait holder hook tipped with gulp on top. Joe had the same rig except he was using a ¾ oz and white gulp all around.

We didn’t catch on the bay or the ocean side but I gained the knowledge of another one of Joe’s spots. Joe is a gentleman always putting me in the spot where he usually catches. We had so much bait in the water however it didn’t appear to have any fish on them. It was crazy to me having all the fluke candy swimming at my feet. I wish I had a cast net to catch, and fish them live. I think I’ll keep trying to catch fluke from shore a bit closer to home especially now that V has given me a few tips that he uses to catch them. To end this trip Joe managed to take an epic photo of me mid cast that I’ve always wanted someone to take. I hope to have many more of those done some time soon. Catch’em up!

Fishing Report:
This was from an annual fishing trip with the Men's fellowship in my church. Dad and I are holding up two nice Fluke. I almost limited out on that trip. Regulations were four fish at 19 inches. I caught too many 18 inch fish that day. But we still had a blast on the Marlin VI Princess now called the Montauk Star with Capt Ed.
