What's Biting.

FLUKE & BLUES DOMINATE THE BAY
May 16, 2019

The fluke bite was a little off the past few trips due to the cold temps and all the rain. However, the bite should bounce back as things warm up a bit.  There is lots of bait in the bay.  That said, the bluefish have been ravenous, hitting all baits thrown at them (even tearing up thje fluke teasers). Fun fishing in the bay.

THE SEASON IS IN FULL SWING
May 10, 2019

Had a busy week on the fishing grounds. The fluke fishing in the bay is off to a great start both in terms of quantity and quality. The striped bass are starting to take up residence in the bay.  The bluefish are making their traditional May blitz. The inshore wrecks and reefs are alive with plenty of cod on them. Stop wishing, let's go fishing.


OPENING DAY FLUKE SUCCESS
May 5, 2019

The fluke season opener was a good one!  The fish were chewing throughout the tide. Over 50 caught with 9 keepers to 6lbs in the bay. Fun light-tackle action. The bite will only improve as the water temps continue to rise.

LOCAL TOG & COD
April 30, 2019

The spring tog season heated up as the water warmed up. The last week saw excellent catches, both in terms of quantity and quality.  Pool fish in the 7-8lb range. A few cod and ling in the mix too.  Sadly, the tog season is now closed until October, but still sailing for cod, ling, scup and sea bass (opens in June)

2019 SEASON ALMOST HERE!

Now booking Striped Bass, Fluke and Bottom Fish charters.Full day, half day and split charters available.


THAT"S A WRAP
December 10, 2018

Well mother nature with her extremely cold temps had me iced in at the dock the past few mornings. That said, the time has come to put a close to the 2018 season. It was another great year. I want to thank my customers, both old and new for sharing time on the water with me. It's my pleasure having you aboard. Merry Christmas. Happy Holidays. And Happy New Year to all! See you all again in April.

BIG TOG & BOAT LIMITS
December 3, 2018

The past few trips we found some bigger tog.  Had a couple of double digits for Mark and Timmy O - 11 & 10lbs respectively. Also had an 8 & 7lber on that trip as well.  Following day had fish to 6lbs. Boat limits have been taken on each trip. The fish are still on the local pieces.

TOG AND BASS
November 26, 2018

The bass bite on jigs is winding down with more and more smaller fish being caught.  The tog bite remains good but the fish are moving a little deeper especially with the recent blast of cold weather.

BASS BLITZ
November 15, 21018

Founds acres of birds just outside the inlet with bass under them feeding on sand eels. Caught them on jigs and on top water plugs. Fun light tackle action.

LOCAL BLACKFISHING REMAINS GOOD,
BIGGER FISH BEING CAUGHT.
November 13, 2018

The weather windows have been too few and far between. That said, when I get out I've been putting  my customer on solid catches of tog.  Bigger fish have been coming up as of late and everyone has been taking home the limit of fish. Fish to 8lbs this week with may over 5lbs. The bite will continue for the next month or so. Jigs and conventional rigs working equally well.


TOGGING REMAINS HOT
November 5, 2018

The local blackfishing remains very good. Limit catches plus lots of short life is providing excellent action. Whether you're a sharpie or new to the tog scene, my customers have had a blast with the whitechins.

EXCELLENT BLACKFISHING
October 28, 2018

The local pieces are alive with lots of tog. The only problem is getting weather windows to fish the ocean. When we do my customers have been getting limit catches and the size has been improving as the water cools.

TOG ARE CHEWIN'
October 21, 2018

When Mother Nature allows us to get out we have been experiencing excellent blackfishing. Both in  terms of quantity and quality.  Traditional rigs and jigs are both working equally well.

TOG BITE IS ON!
October 17, 2018

The NY season is finally open and the blackfish are chewing.  My first trip saw plenty of short life and 8 nice keepers to 7lbs for my two man crew. Plus a surprise big sheepshead was caught as well.  My second trip was a quick afternoon run where we caught over 50 tog in under 3 hiours. Silly fishing.  Again mainly shorts but we took home some nice keepers. The size will improve once the water cools down.

TOG
October 11, 2018

With the NY tog season opening on October 15th on the south shore, we did a little exploring inside to see if the toothy critters are around. We played catch and release with tog to 5lbs on greenies. Looking forward to another good season.


BASS IN THE BAY
October 9, 2018

With fall upon us the bass activity inside is beginningh to heat up. Lots of mostly short bass have been caught on soft plastics as well as clam/chum.  The bigger fish will start chewing once the water cools a bit.

LIMITED SAILING DUE TO ROUGH SEAS
Sept 17, 2018

A week of strong east winds and an ocean heave kept us tied to the dock most of the past week.  Just before the blow we had a nice pick of keeper fluke in the ocean. From many reports it looks like the fluke may be headed to the deep. The inshore pieces are still loaded with sea bass, scup and triggerfish. I will be targeting these wreck denizens throughout September.  Now booking fall blackfish and striped bass.

OCEAN MIXED BAG ACTION
Sept 5, 2018

The local wrecks, reefs and deeper drops are still alive with lots of fish. Lots of big fluke, sea bass, scup and triggers. You can catch them all!. Steve M had the big fish - a 8lb doormat.

SUMMER FAMILY FUN
Sept 1, 2018

The excellent summer mixed bag fishing has  kept the rods bent and folks happy. The action will continue in September.

OCEAN MIXED BAG
August 20, 2018

The bottom fishing on the local reefs, wrecks and hard bottom remains excellent.Drifting has produced good catches of fluke with most anglers catching their limits.  Sea bass remain solid albeit you have to cull through many shorts, but their are still big knotheads to be had.  Scup are everywhere. Triggerfishing has been the best it has been in years providing fun light tackle action and excellent table fare. Summer fun fishing!

BOTTOM FISHING REMAINS SOLID
August 12, 2018

The local sea bass, scup and trigger fishing remain excellent.  All the pieces are holding lots of fish.  Still plenty of nice keeper sea bass around.  Porgies are all over the place so if scup is your thing, now's the time.  Trigger fish are become more active now that the water has warmed.  Fun up and down fishing.

OCEAN FLUKING OFF THE CHARTS
August 10, 2018

The ocean fluke bite has bounced back in a big way. Both out in the deep and inshore on local wrecks and reefs.The fluke have covered up all the structure proving for non-stop action. Albeit lots of shorts are being caught, anglers are having no problems catching their limits. Plenty of quality fish in the 5-7lb class being taken on every trip.

OCEAN MIXED BAG
July 31, 2018

After spending the better part of a week tied to the dock due to bad weather, I was able to get in a few trips and put my customers on solid fluke, sea bass and porgy fishing. Drifting and anchoring on small structure worked equally well.Good mixed bag action with lots of tasty fillets to take home.

OCEAN FLUKE BITE BROKE WIDE OPEN
July 21, 2018

I've been waiting for the ocean fluke bite to get going on the local structure. And this past week it most certainly did. Both in terms of quantity and quality. Every trip we had numerous fish in the 5-7lb class. Fluking as good as it gets.  Big sea bass too as a bi-catch.




FLUKE BITING IN OCEAN AND BAY
July 17, 2018

The bay fluke bite remains very good well into the summer season. A new body of fish has entered our local waterways and provide excellent action albeit you have to cull through lots of shorts.  In the ocean, fishing the rubble and structure has produced nice action especially with bigger fish. Conventional bait rigs as well as bucktails and GULP are both working well.

SEA BASS AND PORGIES STILL STRONG
July16, 2018

The local structure are all covered up with sea bass and scup. Most days it's up and down fishing. Catching your limits is pretty easy. Fun fishing.

SUMMER FUN IN THE BAY
July 9, 2018

The fluking in the bay remains very good both in terms of quantity and quality.  This past weekend we had fish to 6lbs. Fun family fishing in calm waters. A great way to enjoy the summer sun.

OCEAN FLUKE
July 6, 2018

The ocean fluke bite has seen some excellent days and others just OK.  Nice size fish. The bite will only be getting better as the water warms and the fish school up.  Bi-catch of sea bass and ling on every trip.

SEA BASS, SCUP & LING
July 4, 2018

The summer bottom fishing is in full swing.  The local reefs, wrecks and deeper drops are loaded with sea bass, porgies and ling. Fun fishing and plenty of tasty fillets for the dinner table.A few triggers starting to show as well.

SEA BASS OPENS STRONG
June 28, 2018

The sea bass have been stacked on our inshore pieces since mid May and now we can finally catch them. Plenty of jumbos on each trip. The porgies have moved in too with some big scup being caught. Bottom fishing at its best.

FLUKE AND BASS REMAIN STRONG IN BAY
June 26, 2018

The fluke fishing is still excellent in the bay while we wait for the ocean bite to start up. Both quantity and quality fish.  Has been a very good spring for the summer flatties inside.  Stripers and blues still cooperating both on clam/chum and on soft plastics and topwater baits.

FAMILY FUN TRIPS
June 25, 2018

My family fun half day trips have provided excellent catches of fluke and bass in the bay along with sea bass and scup in the ocean. Fun times catching fish and making memories.

MIXED BAG WRECK & REEF ACTION
June 12, 2018

The local pieces are alive. Every terip we are catching scup, ling and more and more ocean fluke. Even had a pollock. The sea bass are here, just waiting for June 23rd to start catching them.

BAY FLUKE STILL CHEWING
June 11, 2018

The fluke fishing in the bay remains very good with plenty of nice big fish coming up.  The highlight of the week was Ari and Nick who landed 6.5lb and 5lb fish on successive drifts.  A blast on light spinning gear.

STRIPED BASS FISHING
June 10, 2018

Clam chumming in the bay has produced excellent action fishing the tide with clam and chum. As soon as we getting moving water the fish start to chew. Fun light tackle action.

SPRING FISHING IN FULL SWING
May 27, 2018

The bay and ocean fishing has been excellent on my full and half day charters. Highlights include a pair of jumbo fluke taken in the back bay by William (7&6lbs). Abumndance of bluefish that have provided light tackle fun. The wrecks and reefs are full of life with scup, ling, cod and even flounder making their way into the coolers. The bass are around too with reports of bigger fish being taken on the troll.

 

SOME BIG FLUKE IN THE BAY
May 15,2018

The fluke bite has been decent in the bay with some days better than others. We are fishing bucktails along with bait rigs tipped with squid and spearing.  Water is warming up nicely so the bite should be getting better.  Plenty of blues are tearing up fluke rigs making for some fun action.

BASS AND BLUES
May 14, 2018

The bass fishing on the tide has remained strong with more and bigger fish moving inside the bay.  The blues have also started to show up.


FLUKE ARE IN THE BAY
May 6, 2018

The fluke season has opened strong with lots of fish up in the bay. The key is fishing all the way in the back to find the warmer water (the fluke are more active!). Plenty of keepers too. Fish are hitting both conventional and bucktail rigs. Spearing and squid working a bit better than Gulp this time of year. The bite will only get better as the water temps rise.

FISH THE TIDE BASS BITE IS ON!
April 30, 2018

My light tackle fish the tide bass trips have been producing anywhere from 20-40 fish per trip. Most have been shorties but we've caught our limit on each trip. Lots of action.

CLAM CHUMMING SCHOOLIES
April 18, 2018

Had a dozen and a half schoolie bass fishing the tide on clam and chum.  The bigger fish are only days behind. And so it starts.

 

THE BASS ARE HERE
April 17, 2018

Ran a few exploratory trips and are starting to see striped bass in our local waters. Mostly schoolies but the bigger fish are on their heels. Also have taken a ferw cod and tog off of local structure. A few days of warmer weather and things should break wide open. 

SEASON STARTS APRIL 1ST

Targeting blackfish, cod and stripers in April. Fluke opens May 4th.


THAT'S A WRAP

The 2017 season is in the books. I want to thank all my customers, friends and fishing brethren for a great year! My best ever.  Can't wait for Spring. In the meantime, Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!  -  Capt. Bob


TOG TO 14LBS.
Dec 4, 2017

The blackfishing has remained very good although you have to cull through lots of shorts. Most passengers able to take home their limit. Fish falling for both conventional rigs and jigs. Neal boated the biggest tog of the year, a 14lb beast which is his PB. The fish inhaled a whole green crab on a local wreck. A few cod have been taken as well.

BASS BLITZ OUTSIDE INLET
Dec3, 2017

This year's fall run of striped bass has been the best in years. Every morning acres of birds with bass underneath. Fish of all sizes up to 20+lbs. We are catching them all on light tackle fishing top water plugs, soft swim baits and jigs. Fish until your arms are tired.

BASS & BLACKFISH
November 19, 2017

As the water cools down the blackfish bite has remained strong on the local pieces. We've seen fish to 9lbs and most trips we catch our boat limit with lots of shorts keeping the rods bent as well.  The striped bass have arrived!!! Execellent jig bite with most fish in the 20lb. class.  One one trip last week Jordan had 15 bass himself in under an hour. The only issue has been all the wind which has been hampering our ability to get out. Less than a month to go.

DOUBLE DIGIT TOG
October 23,2017

The hot tog bite continues and this week four double digit tog came over the rails.  Alex had three himself! On one trip he nailed a 10.5lb on a jig and followed that up with a 12+lber on a conventional rig.  The next day he drilled a fine 11.5lb fish. He was on fire.  Boat regular Bob S nailed his PB tog of 11+lbs on friday.  We also had a few fish in the 7-9lb class.  It's only going to get better as the water cools.  Sea Bass is open again in fed waters and we're catching them along with scup and big triggers. Schoolie bass in the bay and reports of bigger bass outside. The fall run is ON!

BLACKFISH OPENS STRONG
October 8, 2017

The fall season has gotten off to an excellent start.  Lots of tog being caught. Albeit most are shorts, not surprising for early in the season and with 68 degree water temps. But there are plenty of keepers in the mix. Friday 3 guys caught over 50 fish with 6 keepers. Saturday three guys had well over 75 fish taking their limit with fish to 7+lbs. Fish caught on conventional rigs and on 1-2oz. jigs. Some nice triggerfish as a bi-catch. The fising will only get better as the water cools.

MIXED BAG
September 18, 2017

Mother nature has been less than kind to us the past few weeks.  Lots of off shore storms and the passing of Hurricanes Jose and Maria to come has had the ocean all in motion. That said, when we are able to get out the bottom fishing has been excellent with sea bass, porgies and triggerfish keeping the rods bent. Fluke season had ended and overall it was a good one with the summer ocean bite providing quality catches.While we didn't get a double digit this year, we had many fish in the 6-9lb. range. I'm excited that blackfish season is only a few weeks away - October 5th.

OCEAN FLUKE
August 28, 2017

The ocean fluke bite remains on fire as the fish are stacking up on local reefs and wrecks and feeding as they prepare for the fall migration to the deep.  Fishing structure is key for the bigger fish.  Plenty of action with limit catches and nice sized keepers.Only a few weeks left.

FLUKE FISHING IS SUPER
August 24, 2017

The fluke and sea bass fishing has been excellent! Fishing structure gives anglers the opportunity to limit out on both species. Great action on the inshore and near shore pieces. Porgies and triggerfish also being caught. Great late summer fishing.

OCEAN FLUKE AND SEA BASS
August 14, 2017

The ocean bite remains excellent for both fluke and sea bass. Lots of action and plenty of quality fish.  The porgies are all over the inshore pieces so if scup is your thing now is the time. Charter (full and half day) and open boat.

FLUKING REMAINS HOT

August 5, 2017

The fluke bite in the ocean has been veery good the past two weeks. Both interms of quantity and quality with limits take each trip with lots of fish in the 5-7lb. class. Sea bass fishing remains good as well. Have to cull through lots of shorts but plenty of knuckleheads around. Porgies are all over the local pieces so now's the time to score with scup.  Triggerfish also have started to show up.  Fun summmer mixed bag action.


JUMBO FLUKE AND SEA BASS
July 23, 2017

The ocean fluking and sea bass fishing has been exceptional with lots of big fish being caught. My buddy Jesse from Florida had fluke of 6 & 7lbs.  Jack, 87 years young, caught his personal best fluke of 6.5lbs. Many sea bass to over 4lbs. and tons of porgies showing up on the shallower pieces.  The summer bite is in full swing.

SUPER SEA BASS FISHING
July 19,2017

The sea bass bite has been exceptional on the inshore and offshore reefs. Plenty of jumbos still being caught and bag limits every trip.  The porgies have moved in and are providing excellent action.  Target the shallower drops for the scup.  Fluke holding up too with nice catches of keepers mixed in with the shorts.


OCEAN FISHING REMAINS HOT
July 14, 2017

Sea bass and fluke fishing remain excellent.  Drifting the hard bottom and structure allow anglers to catch both species.  Also saw more porgies come up the past few trips. Up and down fishing.  If you like action, now's the time.

FLUKE & SEA BASS REMAIN STRONG
July 11, 2017

The ocean fishing has been very productive. The fluke bite is good and we are seeing bigger fish.  Sea bass still are all over the hard bottom along with scup and ling.  Still some bass inside when you catch the tide.

OCEAN FLUKE & SEA BASS
June 30, 2017

Well sea bass season is finally open and the fishing has been excellent -both in terms of quantity and quality. Some real jumbos being caught. Ocean fluking is also getting better every day as more bait moves in.  Young angler David caught a nice 9lb. doormat on a trip this week. Ocean mixed bag action it's what's on the menu.

EXCELLENT BASS FISHING IN THE BAY
June 17, 2017

The striped bass fishing in the bay has been super.  I have had anglers take over 20 bass per tide; all on bait and light tackle.Some big blues in the mix as well. Fun rod bending action only a shiort ride from the dock.

THE HOT BITE CONTINUES
June 4, 2017

The bite has remained strong across all species - from bottom dwellers to the bass and blues. Each trip has resulted in fun rod bending action.Not to forget the tasty bags of fillets customers have been taking home with them.

SPRING MIXED BAG ACTION
May 30, 2017

The spring fishing season is in full swing with all species cooperating.  The local wrecks and reefs are still holding nice cod and ling.  More porgies being caught on every trip..  The ocean fluke scene is starting to heat up and the bass and blues are all over the bays and inlet.It's time to go fishing!

BASS & BLUES
May 23, 2017

It was blues and bass on the menu on my last trip.  All the fish you wanted, mainly on jigs and light tackle.  More and more bait is starting to show up just outside the inlet.

FLUKE & BLUES
May 21, 2017

The fluke bite is improving in the bay with each trip. More and more keepers are being taken.  Those pesky blues are still in the bay and inlet.

COD, LING & MORE
May 19, 2017

The bottom fishing on the local wrecks and reefs has exploded over the past week as water temps rise. A real mixed bag of cod, ling and out-of-season tog and sea bass. Great up and down action.  The opening day fluke bite in the bay was less than stellar. Cool water temps gave the faltties a case of lock jaw with only a handful of shorts being caught.  The bite will only get better as the water temps rise.  Blues are all over the bay.

BASS & BLUES
May 7, 2017

The bite was on for the Tardino clan. Fishing the tide they had non-stop action with bass and blues. The blues were ravenous attacking the clam baits.  During the mid-tide we had a nice shot of bass with two keepers.  Final tally was 6 bass and over a dozen blues boated.


AWESOME BASS FISHING
May 2, 2017

The bass have taken up residence in the inlet and bays. My trip with David saw the young angler bag seven bass to 36". All caught on light tackle while clam chumming.  Outgoing tide has been the ticket.


THE BASS ARE HERE
April 29, 2017

The striped bass have found their way into the local waters. I ran a few trips over the past few days with plenty of bass taken on clams and chum. We fished the tide with lots of action consisting of mostly schoolies along with nice fish to 33". The action will improve along with the arrival of more bigger fish. The ocean bite should also pick up where we will be jigging, chunking and trolling mojos for the larger bass. The bottom action has also heated up. Sunday's charter with David saw him catch a bunch of cod taking home three market-sized fish for the table. Also had our first porgy as well as tog and sea bass (released). The Spring run is shaping up.


SPRING 2017 - TIME TO GO FISHING

The boat's in the water and ready to go.  The schoolie bass have started to show with the bigger boys right on their heels. The local wrecks and reefs are holding nice market sized cod as well as some ling.  Fluke regs almost set.  Looks like a May 17th start date with a 19" size and 3 fish bag limit. Time to get out on the water and do some fishing!


THAT'S A WRAP

THANK YOU TO ALL MY CUSTOMERS & FISHING BRETHREN. I ENJOYED FISHING WITH YOU ALL THIS YEAR AND LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU IN 2017. HAVE A HAPPY & HEALTHY HOLIDAY SEASON.
 

TOG & COD

December 7, 2016

My past few tog trips saw my customers work hard and get rewarded with solid catches of blackfish as well as a few cod. I also took a day off to fish with Capt. Joe on the King Cod. It was a total bail job with limits of jumbo sea bass, nice cod and huge scup. Up and down fishing.

TAUG & BASS
November 30. 2016

With the season winding down, I've been concentrating on tog fishing deeper local drops. The past few trips we've seen a scratchy bite. Pick a few here. Pick a few there. But just can't get them to chew hard. We've managed to put together decent catches by day's end, but the guys are working hard to catch 'em. Some nice cod are starting to show up as well.  On my last trip, we found the bass and blues big time. It was an insane bite. They bit top water plugs/poppers as well as jigs fished off the bottom. My three man crew had over 30 fish in under an hour, taking home their bass limit.Fishing as good as it gets.

BASS & BLUES BLITZING
November 13, 2016

The bunker are being blitzed by bass and blues. The life is incredible with humpback whales joining in on the feeding frenzy. This has resulted in the best jig bite we've had in a while. Some days it's a mix of bass and blues. Other days mostly blues or bass. The best day of the week was Walt and Mark jigging up over a dozen bass to 26lbs.  I've been also doing some togging and the bite has been excellent with the water temp nearing 55 degrees. Will continue running combo trips as long as the bass and blues stick around. 

BASS ACTION REMAINS HOT OFF THE BEACH
November 6, 2016

A large body of striped bass are feeding on bunker both east and west of Jones Inlet.

BIG TOG CHEWIN
November 3, 2016

The past two tog trips saw excellent results on both tides.  Lots of short fish kept the rods bent all day and plenty of qualtty keepers. 14 keepers on Tuesday and another 11 on Wednesday including Jordan's PB; a 10.2lb. Reef Donkey.

BASS & BLUES
November 1, 2016

A big body of bass and blues moved into the Jones Inlet area providing an excellent jigging opportunity. Bob, Rodger and Jamie took advantage and had a blast catching jumbo blues to just under 20lbs. and bass to 25lbs.  All on light tackle!!! Lots of bait in the water. Even had a few whales feeding right next to the boat.

TOG STILL CHEWIN
October 22, 2016

The only thing stopping us lately has been mother nature. The early season blackfish bite remaind very good. Lots of action culling through shorts and putting together nice catches of keeper tog. We will also be targeting bass as soon as we get reports of fish in the area.

TOG CRUSH
October 12, 2016

The early season tog bite has been super. Tons of action with lots of shorts and plenty of big fish. Tog to 8.5lbs taken this week. Boat limits each trip.

BLACKFISHING OFF TO GREAT START
October 7, 2016

My first two tog trips have resulted in boat limit catches for my charters. Working inshore pieces the tog have been chewing on both tides. The key is moving water. Lots of action with plenty of shorts and quite a few big fish in the 5-7lb range. Biggest fish of the week was a fine 7.5lb tog. The fishing will only get better as the water cools.


PORGIES & SEA BASS ALL OVER INSHORE PIECES
September 24, 2016

With fluke season over, I've been concentrating on local bottom fishing.The porgy bite has been insane with quantity and quality. Boat limits taken on most trips. The sea bassing remains strong as well with plenty of keepers in the mix. Big fish of the week was Ron T's fine 4.5lber. Small blues and triggers are rounding out the catch most trips. Great Fall mixed bag action.\

DOORMAT FLUKE - 10.4lbs.
September 10, 2016

The fluke season is coming to a close especially after the storm. However, we managed to bag a fine 10.4lb fluke fishing local structure. Nice way to end to end the season.

SEA BASS, SCUP & TRIGGERS
September 9, 2016

We are targeting mixed bag action on the local reefs, wrecks and deeper drops. The action has been excellent the past few trips with plenty of sea bass, porgies everywhere (especially inshore) and triggerfish. Not to mention the occasional bluefish and weakfish who seem to make an appearance each day. This fishing should remain strong through the end of the month.

OCEAN FLUKE
August 31, 2016

The ocean fluke bite has remained strong. Lots of quality fish and boat limits. The fish are feeding in preparation for the migration to the deep. Only a few more weeks left.

JUMBO OCEAN FLUKE
August 18, 2016

The ocean fluke bite has broken wide open. Lots of big fluke stacked uo on the structure. Both quantity and quality. The pool fish on most trips topping out over 7lbs.. Plenty of sea bass as a bi-catch. The late summer fluke run is On. Time to catch the flatties before they're gone.

SUMMER FLUKING REMAINS STRONG
July 29, 2016

The fluke fishing in the ocean is still producing very good catches.  There is a lot of life on the deep structure as well on the inshore pieces. More and more fish are stacking up feeding on smaller fish.Bucktailing or fishing with bait are producing equally as well. There is also the bi-catch of sea bass that rounds out the catch most days.  There are ling out in the deeper water while the porgies are still chewing in the shallow areas.

OCEAN FLUKE
July 16, 2016

The ocean fluke bite is on; both interms of quantity and quality. Limit catches as well as plenty of 5-6lb fish. Bucktails, bait, gulp, they are inhaling everything. Nice sea bass too as a bi-catch.  Or simply use clam bait and catch all the sea bass you want. Summer drift fishing at its finest.  The inshore sea bass and porgy fishing remains super as well. Trigger fish are starting to show up.

SEA BASS ON FIRE
July 9, 2016

Opening day of sea bass fishing found the fish waiting for us. Real jumbos too. A nice bi-catch of porgies as well. On full day trips, we switch to fluke after catching our sea bass limit and have found the summer flatties very cooperative on the ocean pieces. Mixed bag summer action. Sea Rogue style.  Now is the time to bend a rod and take home tasty fillets for the BBQ.


FLUKE, SCUP & LING
June 18, 2016

The bottom fish action has been very consistent. Most of my full day trips are combos meaning we target scup and ling along with fluke. Speaking of fluke, the ocean bite has started as the squid have arrived. We've pulled a bunch of 5lb.+ fish already. Scup are still solid and more amd more ling are showing up each day. Of note: Sea Bass opens June 28 (earlier than originally planned).

LOCK N LOAD SCUP
June 2, 2016

Savage porgy bite on the inshore pieces. Only problem is you have to get through all the sea bass (don't get me started ARRGH!!). Real jumbo scup too. Some of the biggest I've seen in my neck of the woods.

THE BITE IS ON!
May 25, 2016

The fishing has broken open both inside and out. The bays are covered in fluke. Although you have to cull through the shorts, there are plenty of nice size keepers around.  Bluefish are everywhere! The ocean fluke bite should be starting soon. The local reefs and wrecks are holding lots of life - porgies and sea bass (off season until July 8). It's been up and down fishing on all trips. I'll be running late afternoon porgy trips throughout June as that's when the scup have their feeding bag on!


BOTTOM FISHING HEATING UP
May 14, 2016

Got in a few trips this past week targeting bottom species on the local haunts. Some nice cod were taken and we also saw the arrival of jumbo porgies. The heartache is having to cull through the numerous sea bass that are stacked on the inshore pieces. Such a crime! Fluke opens in a few days and I'll be targeting the summer flatties.


SPRING SEASON HAS STARTED

After a few shakedown cruises we are now in pursuit of bass and bottom fish. The stripies have been taken on the troll (to the west) and we've seen more and more fish showing up in the inlet on bait.  Blues too.  The local pieces are holding some nice market cod and ling.  Fluke opens May 17th and they are here in the bay waiting for us. With the warmer then normal water temps, it should be a good spring season.


THAT'S A WRAP
LAST TRIP 3 TOG OVER 10LBS!

Ended the 2015 campaign with young angler David catching three tog over 10lbs. Broke off a bunch of big fish as well. Sad to see the season end as the water temps are still in the low 50's and there are plenty of big tog lurking around. T'was a good year and a big Thank You to all my customers and fishing buddies.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!! SEE YOU IN APRIL.

STRONG LATE SEASON BITE
December 11, 2015

The blackfishing remains solid on the local pieces as the water temps remain in the mid-50s. Catching some real nice fish including a pair of double digits (11.5 & 10lbs) taken on the same trip.Plenty of bait off the beaches has kept the bass around. Had fish to 28lbs. this past week. Will try to squeeze another few trips before 2015 comes to a close.

TOG & BASS CONTINUE TO CHEW
November 26, 2015

The winds of November have made picking our days challemging at times. But when we get out the blackfish and bass have been very cooperative. The cooler weater temps have meant the tog have settled in on their deeper inshore lairs. Quality fish have been taken on every trip with many limits.  The bass have moved in our way from the east. Lots of bunker in the water have linesiders stacked up from Jones east to Gilgo. The water temps are still warm for this time of year so the good action should continue through early December.


BLACKFISH & BLUES
November 5, 2015

The blackfishing remains good. Outgoing water producing a better bite. They have been a little finicky and are making you work for them. That said, still plenty of action with quality fish to 7lbs. taken on green and white crabs. A few tries at the bass only produced big blues. I mean real choppers in the high teens. The water is just starting to get into the high 50s so the action this month should start heating up.

SOLID TOG BITE
October 24, 2015

This week's tog trips continued to produce strong results. Some days the bite was a little scratchy and you had to work hard for them.  Other days it was game on as long as the tide was running. On all but one trip we caught our boat limit. Green crabs still the preferred bait.

TOG STILL CHEWIN HARD, BASS MAKING AN APPEARANCE
October 17, 2015

The fall blackfish bite remains surpurb. Joe, his son Justin and Alex had over 80 fish easily retainining their limit. Justin took top honors with a nice 7lb. fish. It was one stop shopping all day.  A trup for Neal and his old pals from Woohdaven saw the group take a bass limit on a "fish the tide" trip.  Fresh clam and chum were the ticket. The fall run is on!


STRONG OPENING TO BLACKFISH SEASON
October 13, 2015

The past few trips have seen a very good tog bite. Not only with quantity but with quality fish as well. Each of my past few trips have yielded limit catches with the pool fish in the 6 - 7lb. category. Many 5lb.+ fish as well. Simple single hook rigs and green crabs are the ticket. Should only keep on getting better.

IT'S TOG TIME!
October 8, 2015

After two weeks of nightmarish weather I finally got out to see if the tog are in town....they're here!  And chewin' hard. My first blackfish trip with Bob and Rodger produced a boat limit of tog with many 5lb. fish in the mix. Bob took top honors with a fish just shy of 7lbs.  The fish bit through both tides.The season is off to a good start.


SEA BASS
September 21, 2015

With fluke season now closed, I am focusing on sea bass and porgy fishing for the next few weeks. The sea bass are schooled up on the deep drops. It's a matter of finding the fish and short drifting to fill the cooler. My three trips this past week all produced limit catches of biscuits. The porgies are concentrated more on the inshore pieces. Blackfish season opens October 5th.

FLUKE & SEA BASS REMAIN HOT!
September 15, 2015

September  bottom fishing has been true to form. The local pieces and deep water drops are holding a lot of life. Porgies, triggers and sea bass inshore. More fluke and sea bass in the 75'+ areas. Also have seen a few blues and albies in the morning/afternoon chasing spearing just outside the inlet. Mackeral have shown up as well which is a surprise for this time of year. The sea bass and fluke have been gorging themselves in preparation for their fall migration to the deep. The action should continue through the end of the month.  Remember: fluke season ends September 21st.

OCEAN FLUKE AND SEA BASS
August 28, 2015

The best game in town remains ocean fluke and sea bass in the deeper drops 70 - 90' of water.. My full day combo trips have given customers opportunity to catch both and take home bags of tasty fillets.  The inshore pieces are still holding scup and plenty of small sea bass. Plenty of rod bending action.


SEA BASS AND SCUP REMAIN STRONG
August 22, 2015

The local pieces are stacked with life. If you like rod bending, non-stop action now's the time.  There are still plenty of big sea bass around along with all the porgies you want. Keeper fluke and triggerfish are also found fishing tight to structure. I target small pieces that are holding bigger fish. Fishing will remain good right through September.

JUMBO SEA BASS & MIXED BAG ACTION
August 15, 2015

The summer bottom fishing is holding up nicely. Near shore the local wrecks and reefs are still producing big sea bass and porgies. A few trigger fish as well. Further out in the 70-80' drops, the fluke fishing has picked up with more bigger fish being caught. Lots of sea bass as well being taken when on the drift.  Now is the time to get in on the action and fill the cooler!


SEA BASS HOLDING STRONG
July 31, 2015

The bottom fishing remains strong with most of my full day trips resulting in mixed bag catches of sea bass, porgies and fluke. You have to cull through the loads of sea bass that are down there, but there are plenty of 14" fish for the cooler. Catch of the week was young angler David's personal best 5+lb. sea bass.

BIG OCEAN FLUKE
July 27, 2015

Boat regular Steve M nailed a nice 8lb. fluke on today's ocean fluke trip. We had countless shorts but managed to put a few nice ones in the box including Steve's doormat.


SEA BASS, SEA BASS, SEA BASS
Opening 2015 Season

The sea bass were waiting for the opening bell to the 2015 season. Lots of action with some real jumbos in the mix. The new 14" regs mean you have to cull a bit harder through the endless shorts (as a 13" sea bass is a bad fish), but by days end we've been getting our boat limits.  Plenty of big porgies around along with fluke that are sitting tight to structure. We had our first trigger fish too. And a cod and sea flounder can even had on any given day. Summer bottom fishing at its best.


OCEAN FLUKE & SCUP

The ocean fluke bite is taking shape in the deep drops and around structure.  Pool fish each trip in the 5-6lb. range. The keeper ration is definitely improving each day.  Lots of sea bass as a bi-catch.  Can't wait until July 15th so we can finally keep them.  The inshore pieces are all covered up by the sea bass (again, can't wait until the season opens). Jumbo porgies around too with more and more being caught each trip. Plenty of ling too.

FLUKE & BOTTOM FISHING
Late June

As summer arrived the fluke fishing remains very good.  More and more fish schooling up in their ocean haunts. The bay however still producing very nicely. Porgies (and some real jumbos) have taken residence on the inshore pieces.  Still some nice cod around along with ling. Sea bass are everywhere and will be waiting for us once the season opens on July 15th. A few bass being taken under the bunker pods, but you have to fish early am or dusk. The summer season is in full swing.

OCEAN FLUKE BITE STARTING; BOTTOM ACTION REMAINS SOLID

This past week saw a continuance of good bottom fishing with more amd more ling and porgies showing up on the local pieces. Still a fe cod around. Plentty of black sea bass that are a catch and release fishery until July 15.  The ocean fluke bite has also started. Big pods of fish in the ocean. Have to cull through the shorts but plenty of keepers in the mix.  Biggest fish of week was Ron's 5lber.

FLUKE IN THE BAY

The past two weeks have seen good fluke action in the back bays.  There is lots of life with many short fish in the 16" - 17" range.  However, enough keepers come over the rail so everybody's been goiong home with full bags of fillets.  Each day the pool fish had been in the 4 - 5lb range.The ocean fluke bite should start soon and the porgies and ling have taken up residence on the local wrecks and reefs. Combo bottom fish/fluke are available on all full day trips.

W/O MAY 17 REPORTS
Opening Day Fluke and Plenty of Cod

Fluke are here in the bay. On opening day Charlie and his buddies caught a bunch of keepers to 5lbs. Mid-week wreck/reef trips saw a good amount of codfish. Tuesday and Friday's full day trips saw anglers load up on cod along with some tasty ling.Plenty of tog and sea bass also that were released.  Wednesday's bass trip saw no stripers but plenty of blues for Wayne and Joey. A bay fluke trip for John. Neal and Jordy saw some flatties and blues.  Happy Memorial Day!

COD
May 15, 2015

Solid cod bite for Ron and Bob. Over a dozen caught with over half keepers.  A bi-catch of ling, sea bass (released) and tog (released).  The spring bite is in full swing.

WEEKEND WRAP UP
May 10, 2015

A nice catch of market sized cod on Saturday's trip along with ling and the first sea bass of the season (returned) for John, Neal and Walt.. On the PM trip we jigged up a bunch of blues for Jesse and Brandon.  Sunday Charter for Ron T and family found the blues cooperative.

BLUES
May 4, 2015

Didn't find the bass today but did find the blues. Those yellow-eyed bruisers have invaded the inlet. Time to break out the jigs and have a blast.

LOCAL BASS
May 2, 2015

Found the striped bass locally on yesterday's charter. Lots of schioolies for David and his grandfather.  The bigger bass should be right on their heels. A quick run to the local bottom grounds produced a few cod. Things starting to heat up.

2015 SEASON IS HERE!

Starting our twelfth season. Not much to report yet.  Water still cold and the local bite hasn't turned on. But soon. Very soon. I have been catching some cod on the inshore pieces and that bite will improve along with ling as the water temps rise. Have been hearing reports of bass just to the west. By next weekend MAY 1 we will begin fishing hard for both bass and bottom dwellers. Don't forget...FLUKE opens May 17th. Prime dates still available so give me a shout and let's go fishing.
Capt. Bob

SEASON'S GREETINGS

DOUBLE DIGIT TOG
November 29, 2014

Walt, Ron joined me for a day of toggin yesterday. Braving the chilly temps, I headed to a few pieces I haven't hit yet this season. We found the fish. It was quality versus quantity; in the end we had two double digit blackfish (12lbs. and 10lbs.) and a total of 10 keepers. The big boys are here.

MIXED BAG
November 15, 2014

Ron was on board for a bass/tog combo trip. As has been the case lately, no bass outside. Just monster blues under the birds. After our fill of blues we hit the bottom fish grounds.

BLACK & BLUES
November 8, 2014

Ron C was on board and we tried for bass early on. No bass; just all the big blues we wanted. After boating a bunch of choppers, we hit the tog grounds. Lots of life with plenty of short fish. We culled through small tog and put together a boat limit. Had action all through the outgoing tide.

BASS
November 5, 2014

Avi, Jay and Walt were on board yesterday. The rough seas kept us inside so we fished the tide for bass. Solid action throughout the morning as the trio caught 12 bass including 4 nice keepers.

TOG TO 7LBS.
October 31, 2014

Ron and Rodger joined me for a day of togging. We had a steady bite at certain parts of the tide and the guys managed to put 6 keepers in the box to 7lbs. Water temp should break 60 degrees after this weekends cooler weather which will bode well for getting the white chins to start chewing.

TOG & BASS
October 26 & 27, 2014

Sunday boat regular Ron C was on board. He braved the relentless NW wind and boated a few short bass in the inlet before calling it a day after a few hours. Monday had Jordan and Warren on board. Hit the bottom fish grounds and the guys had a solid tog bite. Many fish in the 14-15 inch range, but the guys managed to put a bunch of nice tog in the box. A few sea bass and some jumbo scup rounded out the trip.

BASS & BOTTOM
October 24, 2014

Glenn, Pete and Vlad were on board for a bottom/bass combo trip. The guys braved snappy ocean conditions and caught a bunch of porgies and sea bass. When the tide turned we ran inside and caught some nice bass. Looks like the bass run is starting to heat up.

John, Dave and Neal were on board for a full day bottom fish trip. After a slow start in the AM, we hit a local inshore wreck and all heck broke loose.

TOG & BOTTOM FISHING
October 6 & 9, 2014

Took advantage of a weather window to make my first Tog trip of the fall season. With me were David along with his Grandfather. After a brief stop to jig a bunch of 2-3lb blues, we were on our way to the tog grounds. As soon as we had outgoing water, the tog started chewing. Lots of shorts as well as plenty of 14-15 inch fish, but good action nonetheless. By end of day over 30 fish boated with a half dozen keepers for 2 anglers. Not bad. The best is yet to come.David and his Grandfather joined me again for another bottom fish adventure. Stiff west winds made for snappy sea conditions but that didn't discourage young David from catching blackfish, porgies, sea bass and triggerfish. Non-stop action all day.

BOTTOM FISH BLITZ ALL WEEK LONG!
September 27, 28 and 30, 2014

A trip for Neal, Walt and his daughter Cassandra produced non-stop action for the entire morning. As we broke the inlet we were greeted by acres of birds with all the 2-3lb. blues under them. After a half hour or so of light tackle action we set up on the inshore bottom fish grounds. It was lock and load with sea bass, porgies, triggers, a few blowfish and yes, more blues. By noon we were heading home with a full cooler.
Stephen Armada and his three friends got into the hot bottom fish bite as well. The inshore pieces are alive with porgies, trigger fish, blues and loads of sea bass with some jumbos still around. It only took two drops to fill the cooler with over 50 fish. Beautiful day on the water and the fish cooperated by chewing hard. It was an insane porgy bite for Bob, Desmond and Rodger. Up and down fishing all morning. They also caught some nice sea bass. Final count over 50 scup in the box and a dozen and a half sea bass. We pulled the plug early as the stiff east winds made the ocean all a motion.

 

FULL DAY SEA BASS & SCUP SLAM
September 23, 2014

Great day on the water with a great family who loves to fish.

OCEAN FLUKE
September 12, 2014

Ran out to the deep today with Jesse and Eli to where we had them Sunday. Not sure what to expect given the four days of strong easterly winds. The ocean was snappy when we hit the grounds but found the fish cooperative. After nailing a nice keeper right away it was short fish city. Lots of life but no size. We then ran about a mile or so away and found a nice body of fish with nice keepers in the mix. Fish on every drift. Over 40 fluke caught with 9 keepers to 5.5lbs.


INSANE FLUKE BITE
September 7, 2014

Wayne, his Son Dimitri and Jesse were on board for an AM fluke run. We hit the deep drops and the summer flatties were waiting....and hungry. Non-stop action with every drift producing fish. By 11AM we had our three man limit and returned nearly twice as many. Surprise of the day was Jesse hooking into a small mako which we released boat side. We headed home early so everyone could catch the Jets game.

SEA BASS
September 3, 2014

Bob, Peter and his daughter joined me yesterday to do some bottom fishing. In the AM we had a good bite of jumbo sea bass and porgies along with a few triggers. When the bite slowed we ran deeper and drifted, picking away at the sea bass. By days end the cooler was full and anglers happy.

What a difference a day makes.On Sunday Charlie his son Matt and friend Louie joined me for a day of bottom fishing. We were greeted with a snappy ocean but it was well worth it. As soon as we came tight on the hook it was game on. An insane bite of sea bass, porgies, trigger fish and small blues. The rods were doubled over for 2 1/2 straight hours. After they had enough, we switched over to fluke where some nice fish came up; including two over 5lbs. We called it a day at 1:00 and headed home.

BOTTOM FISH ACTION
August 28, 2014

Yesterday's charter for Mark, John, Hector and John produced a steady bite of sea bass, porgies and trigger fish at the local haunts.

SUPER BITE IN ROUGH SEAS
August 22 & 23, 2014

On Friday, a nasty ocean did not stop Neal, John and Jordy for bailing the fish today. Sea bass and lots of nice porgies were taken on the inshore pieces. Also some nice trigger fish were caught. Pulled the plug at noon as they had a cooler full of fish and had enough of the building seas.Wayne and Mark were on board Saturday as we faced another day of stiff east winds and rough seas. After a slow jog to the sea bass grounds it was game on. The biscuits and porgies were chewing hard.Mark even caught a nice 5lb fluke that inhaled his clam bait. The bite slowed after noon so we called it a day. The guys took home a mixed bag of over 30 fish.

 

OCEAN MIXED BAG
August 21, 2014

The bite today was a bit off from recent trips with regard to ocean fluke. Jamie, Suzy and Bob picked away at the fish mostly shorts. We then ran to the deep drops that have been holding sea bass and the trio banged away at the biscuits keeping only the nice sized fish for the grill.

FLUKE & SEA BASS
August 20, 2014

Vinny, Chris, Nicky and Mickey were on board for a full day combo fluke and sea bass trip. The ocean was like a lake with no drift. In the AM we ran deep and the guys banged away at the sea bass with fish to 4lbs. In the afternoon, the drift picked up and the fluke turned on. Fish to 5lbs were taken. At the end of the day we had a full cooler and the boys took home bags of tasty fillets.

August 16 & 17, 2014

Fished the inshore local pieces this weekend for sea bass and porgies. Like it is during the dog days of summer, have to make a bunch of drops and cull through short fish, but in the end we filled the coolers with tasty biscuits and some jumbo scup.  Saturday, John and his two boys were back at it and put a hurtin' on the fish. Rods doubled over all day and in the end, over 30 fish (a mix of mostly sea bass and some porgies) were put on ice.  Sunday, Eli and Vlad had similar results with more porgies. Strong west winds and a snotty ocean didn't stop the guys from icing up 25 fish.

INSHORE MIXED BAG
August 11, 2014

Had John, Jordy and Phil Sr. and Jr. on board Monday for a day of bottom fishing. We hit a bunch of local pieces with each holding fish.

Timmy and Charlie joined me for a full day trip. And boy did they slam them. The day started with birds everywhere and 2-4lb blues busting chasing spearing. Well we had to stop. After taking 20 or so they had enough and we ran deep targeting fluke and sea bass. Steady action with nice sized fluke and sea bass up to 5 lbs. A few ling sprinkled in as well. Had a nice mahi on before he pulled the hook and a 4' brown shark grabbed one of the baits and was released boatside. Lots of life as the ocean water temp is 70+. Ended the day hitting a few inshore wrecks where we took some more jumbo sea bass and scup. Long day. Lots of fish.

The guys fished hard today.What a difference a day makes. Friday  sailed with Steve, Bill and Eli. Unlike the past few days, the fluke bite was a little off.

We then steamed to the fluke grounds and found fishing off versus where it was last weekend. However, the guys iced up a few for dinner. In the afternoon, I took John and his sons Jordy and Justin to some inshore pieces a little shallower where they slammed the sea bass, with lots of fish in the 3-4lb range. in a couple hours they had 20 keepers along with some big porgies. Long day and lots of fish.

May 3, 2013


Had Ron and Jordan on board and it was lock and load bass fishing in the AM. The guys easily took their limit then played catch and release. Lots of blues to 8lbs. as well.

Had Desmond on board for a fish the tide trip. In just under three hours we had a dozen bass on clam and chum. Most of the fish were shorts, but provided great light tackle action. The bite will only get better as the water temp warms up.
 

FIRST TRIP OF 2013 SEASON - BASS
April 27, 2013

Fished locally for bass for two hours on the outgoing tide. Had seven stripers. They're here! Clam and chum the ticket. Fish to 28".  Bigger fish on the way.  Now booking "Fish the Tide" bass trip charters.  These are 5 hour trips with departure times dependant upon the tide - morning, afternoon and evening.

 

 

LAST HURRAH

December 14, 2012

The last trip of the season resulted in a boat limit of tog to 5lbs. Given the stiff west winds and heavy seas, I decided to stay S/SE and fish the local structure. We had steady action during the entire outgoing tide. Back at the dock by 12:30.

This was the final trip of the 2012 season. Thanks to all my customers and fishing friends. See you in a few months.

Have a Happy Holiday!

BLACKFISH
November 23, 2012

The blackfish bite was non existent yesterday. Every drop produced nada. Only a few doggies and silver eels. The week long easterly winds and big ocean swells certainly haven't helped.
