Diamond Jigging Striped Bass off Fire Island STILL HOT

Arrived on the grounds and was greeted with HUGE flocks of seabirds, gulls, gannets and terns, wheeling, screeching and diving on baitfish being driven to the surface by the striped bass feeding on them. Bass were rolling on the surface all around the boat and it did not take very long for me to forget just how cold it was out there.

2013 Riverview Striped Bass Contest Aboard the Maybe Tonight

We soon were marking bait and fish and the diamond jigs were put into action. Did not take long for the first of MANY MANY HUGE bluefish to come alongside the boat. Big angry bluefish were mixing in with stripers into the teens. Moving around and dropping on any substantial bait balls I marked produced more of the same until my buddy Dennis stuck the jig into a bass that my BogaGrip had weighing 24-25lbs

Long Island Fishing Report Fire Island Striped Bass Diamond Jigging

We left the marina is CHILLY 37 degree weather with the wind making it feel quite colder. The ride east of Fire Island inlet was a little sporty as the East winds had some decent chop added to the mix on top of the ocean swell. The guys did great and were soon rewarded by jigging striped bass and bluefish till their arms were wore out!!

Long Island Fishing Report Striped Bass Fishing RED HOT on Diamond Jigs

Wednesday was a carbon copy of Tuesday with a good swell on but excellent fishing again with heavy stripers to 30 pounds. Thursday was one for the books as I fished with two long time fishing pals and we beat up on well over 50 fish, but it was not the number that impressed me so much as it was the quality of the fish on this day. We have very few fish that were UNDER 20 pounds with the majority running 25+ pounds and 7 of those over 30!!!

Long Island Fishing Report Great South Bay Solid Weakfish and Bluefish Action

The action started off fairly slow but as the incoming current aided by the strong west wind started cooking I experienced action with weakfish that I have not seen for longer than I can recall. For almost two hours I was hooked up on every drift with some quality fish
