I spoke with Mike M. who fished out of the Cape for summer flounder this weekend and passed along what we have mentioned here when you co-mingle a group charters fish. Colored plastic ties are an excellent way to sort out fluke and blackfish that are placed into what is termed " a single or common receptacle" and lessens the confusion on "whose fish is this....."

Image


One of the finest rod and reel fishermen that we know of....Tony 'Fish' still going at it and putting many big blues to sleep on the BROOKLYN VI....

Image


Have to thank Willie 'G' for passing these along from a recent groundfish trip and catching cod and pollock on an "unplated" Angerman 8 oz jig. I see a growing number of fishermen shying away from using unplated jigs and preferring chrome plated jigs. It is obvious that plain lead jigs without chrome or nickel plate, or stainless jigs - still catch fish. More so, the Angerman 8 oz as Willy told me is his favorite go to jig and a few years back a fishermen in New England went out of his way to make his own custom 8 oz Angmeran-like jigs since it was his favorite too!

Once a noted New Jersey party, and now....

Image
Image


Which one? Thanks to Captain Keith A. for passing these along...

Image


Our weekly on the Coney Island scene MRIP effort report. We scan the waters from Brighton and Manhattan Beach, out to Flats and Can to the turn of the Channel and off to Nortons Pt. and what do we see this afternoon? The SEA QUEEN!!!!! That is it today, and the fish count on the pier was a big goose egg too....

Image
Image
Image


What's this? Thanks to Frank who was passing by, this is a round-up of about ten derelict vessels inside Shell Bank which will eventually being towed to parts unknown, but most likely a place to be chopped up after being cleaned and scavenged...

Image
Image


One of the best eating fish around. Ling sauteed with Chinese greens, and just with a little salt and pepper. I cannot imagine how good this must taste....

Image
Image


We see some 'big unit' pics of scup which have been sent in over the years, well here is one from Captain Steve of the 'TOP HOOK' in Montauk.....

Image


In closing tonight, I always would take note of this particular building which takes up a whole block on W. Houston and Sullivan Street in SoHo, and in particular for Italians it just happens to be the Church of St. Anthony of Padua which is the first parish in this country for arriving Italian and Sicilian immigrants before the start of the Civil War. The statue put in place at the Garden many years afterward displays the Virgin Mary appearing to and before three children in Fatima, and this has always been one place in the city where I normally stop by for a few moments when I am in the area. This vision of the Virgin Mary happened over a century ago, but there is another incredible event that changed the world 75 years to this day and the anniversary with the Greatest Generation who sailed onto and then stormed the beaches at Normandy on June 6th. Miracles do happen which in fact has impacted all of us as this nation defeated the evil of Nazism. For those who have been watching the actual world event-news over the last few days we have heard the stories from those paratroopers, Rangers and Army soldiers who survived D-Day and have spoken about the extremely nasty seas, unrelenting firing from the hills and the bloody-red waters and beach at Normandy; and yes, those who were with them and fell at Utah and Omaha Beach and never came home....

Captain Kenny had this one on his boat the other day...and I hope it ended up in the right place.....

Image


Oh, the June 11th 2019 unofficial-running MRIP count being conducted off the waters of Coney Island. Lets see what we can find with boats on the water early in the afternoon. The count was 2 private boats drifting and dreaming and of course the Sea Queen fishing off on the Flats. Still not only edible fish seen so far on Coney Island pier this season!#@

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image


During our visit to the Coney Island pier, seems someone forgot to have their saltwater registry card on them to fish and was being escorted off wearing stainless silver bracelets.... Then right near Pauls Daughter there was a little tot holding her wrist and being attended to by EMS and NYs FINEST. It was a beautiful afternoon with a growing number of people on the Broadwalk, but for some reason (no fish or good reports), few are fishing in this area....

Image
Image


Whatever is not used for cod bait, dip in Golds 'Lively Cocktail Sauce'..........

Image


How many times do we have to repeat...get the jig in the area where these butts lurk. Caught on a 21 Norwegian jig......

Image


Notice the rod in the stern corner and the tube hanging off the dropper. You will see the same tube being used in the above image just taken. Folks, for GOMaine pollock, tubes should always be part of your terminal tackle arsenal. Depending on the time of the season, surgical tubes in dark colors, then curly tails and finally cod flies (we like the pinks, reds to purple coloring) should be carried. Just remember, tubes will hold up the best when you're into a good pollock bite....

A little quiet with the fishing reports, though I did hear of a few fluke being caught and a big contrast from the no fishing and lack of fish due to the nautical and wet weather lately. Anyhow, thanks to Captain K.A. for passing a few pics of a party boat now going about it's day at the Battery Ferry Terminal.....

Striper readings from up north...or so I have been told.......

Image


If you want to see what a really big halibut looks like....

Who celebrates Flag day? We do!!!!!

Image


Original Viking button, circa 1973...thanks J.J....

Image


Captain Steve and TOP HOOK jumbo fluke...seems one of the few south shore - consistent big fluke fishing lately.....

Image
Image


Well we have seen a few of these around this region so far this spring of 2019. It looks like a good sign for the near future....

So what do you give the saltwater fishing dad on Fathers Day...a trip to the NY Aquarium of course! Needless to say, my wife buys the yearly family NY Aquarium membership pass which also allows free parking (unless you are lucky to find a nearby spot on the street) and they did get a bonus of two free tee shirts, all for a few hundred dollars from what I now see on their membership page!

Anyhow it is pretty interesting to see the show, but as much watching our local species in the big fish tanks in the new building. The only issue is that the area and people around Coney island has both noticeably and radically changed (being politically correct here) since the time Rudy was Mayor, and the Broadwalk itself is a mess of flying paper when the wind is blowing...


Image


The big tank with the blackfish scooting around is one of my favorites, though nothing much goes on with most of the blackfish slowly swimming around or sitting quietly near some bottom obstruction....

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image


I did not realize they have two separate biscuit tanks, one where I just saw a lonely jumbo sitting on the bottom and not doing much moving around, especially after waiting for almost ten minutes to see if it would swim around. By the way, the color you see here is the actually color we saw in that tank due to the bottom and possibly the lighting with a glowing aqua blue tone as seen here...

Image
Image


The second tank had a mixing of mediums swimming around and doing what sea bass do and slowly swim around...

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image


The last point of interest here in the big saltwater tank room was the striped bass seen above in the ceiling. Pretty neat, but I wondered how these fish can just swim in unending circles for 24/7 in this particular area of the exhibit....

Image


As for the fishing, Captain Steve of TOP HOOK out of MONTAUK passed along that the striped bass fishing is becoming productive to the point where fishermen can now catch some quality rock...

Image


Captain Steve of the LADY M fishing out of the Garden State at this time sent over a pic yesterday of a panfish that many are waiting to show up in pail filling numbers, and about time too....

Image


Switching back out to the east end, Mark and Chris happened to put together a nice handgear commercial catch of fish before the wind machine turned on early in the afternoon....

Image
Image
Image


Thanks to Frank who was out fluking and put a few quality fish into the cooler. I have heard that fluking has slightly picked up especially after the lull from the prior two weeks...

Today we are just posting this one theme and many thanks to Marc Pagnozzi. Many who fished on Captain Richie Kessingers' STARSTREAM II out of Freeport, knew Marc as one of the longtime mates on the boat. Marc later moved up to Connecticut with his wife before permanently moving to Florida. Along those last years was an extremely serious health issue that thank the Good Lord, Marc has gotten better from.

Anyhow Marc told me that he caught this really exceptional scamp at 17 pounds the other day. More interesting enough was that he caught it on a Bobby OE TACKLE 4oz silver jig that he bought from Captain Howard Bogan (he uses OE TACKLE jigs and hooks) in about 140 feet due west of Venice in Florida. Due it size it will be getting mounted in the near future. As he said, "this trophy fought like a gag as it ran into hole, but with much patience and some finesse he got it out."

Now as to the jigs shown below, Marc pointed out that these are his 3 go to jigs, but "honestly" as he told me, the one on left is best for Florida which is the OE TACKLE chrome 4oz jig. That's the jig in which the scamp pounced on. Note the Gold hook which makes the difference.

The tuna jig on right (Tuna Candy) is excellent in 200 to 300 feet with some current. The middle Vi-ke jig kills blackfins, and I can pass along that last week I was contacted for this jig.

They all work BUT you need to know how to fish and working and dealing with each days conditions. Mindless swinging of the rod will catch a few but not like me. I learned from a few of the best by just watching. By the way, the gold hook on the chrome jig was a favorite setup by none other than Captain Richie Kessinger............
