Long Island - Saltwater Fishing Report
Long Island fishing is strong. the Sound is full of bait. you can fisnd anything from black drum and spanish mack to blues, bass and fat alberts.
I had a very interesting fishing week. It started last Friday seeking Tuna in Ipswitch Bay, Mass. with my son Scot. We saw nothing but ocean. We returned to the Merrimack River and caught our fill of schoolie bass. The Merrimack is quite a fishery for schoolies.
I fished a Long Island Bassmasters Tournament on Whaley Lake in upstate New York. There were many fish caught but hot shot Dan McGary wins every time on that lake. The yamamoto senko is the hot bait.
I guided two real gentlemen today out of Northport. Bill Herzig brought friend Dave Kaminsky for an afternoon charter. They nailed 1-4 pound blues on poppers. Dave then mentioned that he fishes with Jeff Northrop in Connecticut and has been doing well with blues but lacking Bass. Dave reports that Captain Northrop is one of the finest guides around. I took that as a challenge and before the day was over Dave had five or six bass. All kidding aside. Captain Northrop has a great reputation!
Todd Calitri reports that the fishing in Alaska is un- real. He is the head guide at Alaska Sportsman's Lodge. He reports rainbows to 30", dolly varden, grayling and salmon fishing in the Bristol Bay drainage. If you want to experience Alaska, visit this lodge.
