July 7, 2016 Offshore & Inshore Fishing Report

It has been a nice week for many of us Fisherman. The bite for both inshore and offshore anglers has produced some very nice results. From Striped Bass, to Tuna, to Shark … It has been a solid week for many!

Striped Bass have been plentiful from the South Shore from Montauk to the Fire Island Inlet. Yes that is a very wide range to catch fish, but they are in all our local inlets and along our south shore beaches. Trolling Mojos, Drifting Eels in the Inlets, and hunting down the Bunker pods has been the most popular methods. I for one have been on them each night drifting eels in the Shinnecock Inlet all by my lonesome in the middle of the night. The Striped Bass are indeed there!

The Fluke bite has been a little bit of a struggle from time to time. It is a slow bite in our back bays for sure. Over from Shinnecock to Montauk if you head out into 60 to 90 feet of water you will find some quality Fluke. We see the best bite for Fluke right now out in the ocean.


The Shark bite is RED HOT right now! From 25 to 30 Fathoms, you will have your best chance of landing that trophy Mako or Thresher. We even have word of Thresher Shark hunting down Bunker pods closer and closer to our local beaches by Shinnecock.

Our current Offshore report shows that the Local Canyon bite is a little slow right now. Still producing some fish, but slow. But in our Inshore/Offshore grounds a little closer folks are getting there hands on some quality Bluefin by trolling & top water popping.

Stay tuned for reports!!
