The weather is going to be tough on Friday with high winds out of the northwest but Saturday and Sunday morning look great.
Before the storm striped bass were caught on the bunker pods down deep east of Fire Island Inlet. Inside fishing slowed with some fish on shad. Shad are plentiful in all the usual spots and are catching fish. There is a good night bite of bass on eels inside the inlet. No bunker has been seen inside but with cooler weather on the way they should
Blackfishing is good on the Fire Island reef with fish to over 10 pounds. The Riverview Striped Bass Tournament is scheduled for Election Day and the captain’s meeting will be Monday 11/2. I will see you there and will be fishing the tournament. It should be a great weather day and fun for all.
Trophy Tackle has restocked its supply of Shimano Waxwings and they are super hot on the bass when they are feeding on top. They also have a great selection of jigs both in chrome and gold in hammered style.
Offshore if you can get there it’s a great bite on big eye and yellowfin on the chunk both in the day and at night.
