Long Island Fishing Report- Fire Island Fluke Fishing Going WellBy
The fluke fishing in the Fire Island area has been going pretty well for the past several weeks and is showing no signs of slowing. Saturday’s group battled some difficult conditions with the wind working against the current to mess up the drifts and today’s group had just the opposite with STRONG winds combining with a moon current to have the boat really moving!!
Mr and Mrs Dion and their son Matt were aboard on Saturday for a 1/2 day fluke trip. In less than ideal conditions they managed to put together some decent numbers of fluke while coming up just a bit short of the legal mark on several instances. Plenty of line-stretching action on a tough day.
Today I had Mr Banta, his daughter Laurie, son Eric and grandchildren, Kyle and Sophie aboard for 1/2 fluke trip on the Great South Bay. BIG West wind howling down the inlet on the flood current today. Picked up the gang at Saltaire on Fire Island and in no time the lines were in. Everyone were good fisherman and it showed as they put the Blue Frog buck-tails and GULP combos into action loading up on a bunch of fish to 19inches before finally sticking a fat keeper for the table.
It was a great day on the water with a wonderful crew. Thanks Mr Banta and will speak to you next summer
