No complaints for those looking for stripers. There are lots of nice fish around up into the fifties, and
most of them are being caught on eels. Trollers might catch some of those big ones as well, except that there are
so many boats drifting eels itís impossible to troll through the area. Boats that want to troll have to get there
own place to fish where there are no other boats to bump into. And as a bonus, there arenít too many bluefish
around to make cigars out of the eels.
The falsies are keeping the light tackle guys happy and there havenít been many problems with striper
guys and falsie guys getting into each others way because most of the falsies and small stripers are on the south
side. One thing common to both of them is that you have to put in your time because the fish arenít biting good
all day. Be there when the fish are cooperating and you do great. get there when the tide is wrong and youíll
spend a lot of time waiting around.
The seabass are on vacation until the first of November, but the porgie season that was to end the middle
of the month has been extended so that now the fish will be gone before the season ends. Blackfish season is
now open.
Next Sunday Star Island is holding their second annual striped bass tournament.
Last week I worded my comments about the offshore fishing poorly. You can still go out and catch
sharks, or travel out to the Edge and catch tuna. But, very few boats are doing it, especially the charter boats.
But Montauk Marine Basin is staging what is appropriately called the ďLAST HURRAHĒ tournament through
October 9. Boats are allowed to fish two 20 hour day trips or one 40 hour overnight trip. Nothing much has
become of these tournaments in the past, so it will be interesting to see how this works out.
The owner of the boat that I run all summer has gone south so I wonít be doing much fishing for the rest
of the season (except for tagging bass). But he is putting the boat up for sale. Itís a 33í L&H center console with
twin 3116 Cats. If you are interested, you can check it out at
Iíll be spending more time promoting the winter fishing in Central America. If that interests you, check
it out at
