Captain Steve was out with the LADY M today and reported very good biscuit fishing, but he did say there was a noticeable number of smaller BSB being hooked today between the rain squalls coming through...

Since I started this NY BIGHT INSIDER image running thread, a few interesting pics have been sent in, this one from a east end captain. Fishermen humor I would gather....

It has been in and out with the sun during this month of June, but thankfully the fishing has definitely picked up over the last week. Captain Joe of BLOODLINE SPORT FISHING - MTK told me last night and this morning that the striped bass fishing has really picked up around the Point where you will kept pretty busy pulling on fish from decent sized schoolies all the way to 40 lb stripers. It seems a run similar to what occurred in Lower NY Harbor in April and early May is now coming to Montauk with the amount of striped bass finally coming into the waters around Montauk.

Captain Joe also said that he can be reached at either captjoe@bloodlinemtk.com or 1 (516) 655 9271 to set up a trip......

Captain Michael Ardolino of HUNTER FISHING - NYC in Sheepshead Bay had some night fishing for striped bass as a rare 50 lb plus striped bass hit the deck for Alex. The fish had an official weight of 52 lbs, and this is pretty special to have this big a trophy striped bass successfully landed on a party boat...

Image
Image
Image
Image


Captain Mike also is reminding fishermen that the fluke fishing has dramatically improved over the last few days and that the boat will be daily sailing for fluke....

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image


Captain Steve of TOP HOOK - MTK. had another productive trip and he is reporting some amount of mixed-size striped bass around. Bluefish also, but their are slammer-sized scup hitting diamond jigs. Fluke fishing is also starting to show some consistency with larger fish....

Image
Image
Image


Marc FIshark at FISHARK ADVENTURES passed along these pics and the report; "The great Captain Nate landed his 5th Porbeagle, this one 90 inches. Still loading up on haddock and 2 days ago he had a 45 inch Halibut on a haddock drop!

Image
Image
Image


As for the naysayers about the striped bass population, Captain JImmy of the JAMES JOSEPH has had some season so far and wanted to point out these bottom readings of striped bass stacked up off of Huntington the other day....

Image
Image


If you want to have "big gun" arms like this, pull on stringers of doubles and triple pollock in the GOMaine during the season...

I see a lot of hook and line guys fishing that way, straddling the gunwhale.
Less back pain. Lol!

A very Happy Birthday to Captain Jimmy of the JAMES JOSEPH and no better way to celebrate then to put his customers on some top notch rockfish....

Image


For those who didn't hear, Captain Joe of the KING COD brought back some fine cod up and over 30 lbs along with more south shore of Long Island than we have seen in a while. In speaking with Captain Joe, the first area he tried had some cod, but dogs were barking pretty loud which forced him to re-direct for another long ride to where he found these quality groundfish...

Image
Image
Image


There was an interesting little story from Captain John Peabody of the Pt. Judith ported LADY CLAIRE. Captain John is one of the pioneers of the offshore southern Rhode Island lobster fishery and caught something that surprised him since, and as he stated,"balloon in trap is 100 mi offshore in 80 ftm." Now I doubt anyone could figure out how this got into the trap, but many fishermen are saying that these types of balloons end up in the wrong places like inside the belly of fish and eventually kill them. Please dispose of these party favorites properly. Thanks to Captain John for posting this...

Image
Image
Image


Captain Joe of BLOODLINE SPORT FISHING sent over a few pics of the night and day fishing for striped bass, and it's pretty obvious that this fishery is productive for both large and schoolie stripers....

In speaking with Captain Greg of the OCEAN EAGLE tonight, he brought up about last Tuesday and the phenomenal fluke fishing where he had more doormats (6 lbs and greater) then he has seen in a while. A few customers actually pulled off doormat limits, and many onboard had or close to a limit. Captain Greg said this was just one of those days where the fluke bit like they should and of course on the following day it returned right back to a slow pick! So much for chasing the reports but that is the way fluke fishing has been so far this season. Captain Greg also mentioned that he is seeing a good amount of scup around and that he will start sometime this weekend, but will continue to sail for fluke on a couple of days during the week....

Image


In closing this NY BIGHT INSIDER tonight, I see Tayfun (we call him 'TYPHOON) holding a nice red caught on the YANKEE CAPTS. I remember when he called me about making his first trip to fish with Captain Greg, and I explained to him that you will see fishing on the YANKEE CAPTS that you will not see anyplace else....

23 lbs GOMaine smoker....

Image


Off the south shore of Long Island, this man has been the big gun whether its golden tilefish or cow sized cod....

Image


Thanks to Nick for sending this in on one of the biggest fluke seen so far this year 'caught' (ie: not brought in from outer state) on Long Island. "Bill Ponzios brother took his boat to Montauk and this fluke had an unofficial weight between 11 and 12 pounds!

Image


Mark Fishark from FISHARK ADVENTURES sent these pics in from today's fishing with Captain Nate out of Hampton, NH. Mark passed along this report: "Fast limit of Haddock, some Pollock, a white hake, lots of Big Cod. Whiting fishing slow with maybe 50 for 6 people with no big ones today. Highlight 65 inches Porbeagle followed Haddock. Nate free gaffed it and it was his 7th in the last two weeks."

A big thanks to Raply 'Rodwinder' for sending me home with slabs of fluke fillet as well as some Cape Cod Bay winter flounder... and yes, they do exist in bucket filling numbers in other lands far away from the Vampire State. Needless to say, one cold water Nantucket fillet can feed a family of four. Kid you not we had leftovers from just one of the big fillets...

Image
Image


What a way to close out a winning Friday night for the Yankees and my wife passing along an article about Herbie Slavin. In fact, a whole page article on the 1st page of the business section in the NY POST about Herbie and his brother Barry going 'finito' as we say in Italian with his fish-mongering business. Herbie and his noted SLAVIN & SONS trucks will not be forgotten and as much with the famous motto of his century old company, "Eat more fish. Live longer," though there are a number of commercial fishermen who have dealt with H. Slavin over the decades and will have some other choice words to say about him..

One of the Montauk captains sent this in and I can also pass along that this was referred over to the local DEC office about Atlantic Bonita making its earliest showing in memory. There is no one we know and as this captain said to me, "anyone he knows of" who have seen such an earlier showing of bonita this far east at this time of the year. There is also a strange run of some very large False Albacore, aka Alberts at this time with fish of over 15 lbs being caught while fishing for BFT. I was told last night by a New Jersey captain of a few 20 lb fish coming in that were caught offshore and between the "Ree-Zar and Princess" for those interested.....

Image


This season we have not been posting any pictures sent in by Captain Joe and the HELEN H on the fluking off the 'Shoals' but we did have one sent in by a captain from out east whose buddy did make trek up to the Bay State. It is pretty obvious that these are true doormats to say the least. As a few may have seen with all the pics and reports on socialized media, this seems to be one of the best early season runs of fluke south of Nantucket...

Thanks to Frank and Matty for the image with this monster fluke weighted in at 16 lbs 4 oz caught today. In the pic is both Captain Joe and Matty with the very happy fisher....

Image


So much for the New Jersey biscuit season going into the siesta mode until July, but the fishing has been very good as we can see from Captain Steve LADY M....

Image
Image
Image
Image


Thanks to Nick who sent this in of Bill P. father with a 42 lb rockfish off Montauk....

Image


Captain Steve of the TOP HOOK in Montauk said they had some fluke bite for 45 minutes, and we can see everyone caught some very fine fish...

Image
Image


Thanks to Mark C. who sent in a pic while tog fishing and said that the fishing for keepers was not the finest, but there were some amount of short fish on the drops...

For those who work for their fluke, good things happen to fill the cooler. Frank put together another nice catch of the summer flatfish, but it is not as easy as it should be. Pay attention to your drifts and no drifting and dreaming this season...

Image


Finally seeing more good readings along the inshore bottom east of the Hook...

Image
Image


It is pretty neat to see this very pleasant sea creature passing right by the boat....

Image


Captain Steve of the TOP HOOK out of Montauk with a XXL jumbo summer flatfish today....
