The fishing continues to be steady as far as sea bass and tog are concerned. Anglers have been taking advantage of the resident stripers that are making their way out of the rivers and the backwaters. Quite a few decent size stripers have been landed the last week or two. I'm glad to see that the stripers are being caught, but if you are a striper addict you are holding your breath right now waiting to hear that they are blowing up at either Montauk, or even better LBI state park, which means that they are getting ready to hopefully head our way and park off the local waters so we can enjoy a great striper season like days of old. We would even welcome a nice run of big chomper blue fish. Anything to get us out of this lull of a fall fishing season that we are in at the present time. Keep the faith, it will happen.
Tog fishing has picked up a little, the sizes are getting better, but anglers are still having to weed through small fish to get a few keepers. Again, the water temps and the winds are directly playing a big part in the fishing this fall so far. Offshore sites are turning up great catches of sea bass with some flounder also being caught. If you can get there, go out and have a great day. Remember a bad day of fishing is still better than a good day at work. Come by and see our large selection of MOJOS, stretch 25's, stretch 30's, Bomber lures and all your trolling gear needs. We are also stocking SEBILE stick baits. Gulp has put out another new product called the " NEMESIS", in a 6" version. These are some of the baddest GULP baits I've ever seen. We are also ready to set you up with a new trolling combo, or a new "chunking" rod & reel. Stop in and check out our very large selection.
Tightlines everyone, Tommy Serbin.
