Boats working out of Orient by the Sea early this week were doing very, very well on fall tautog. Rich Jensen with the Nancy Ann said, “It’s way, way better than last year!” Jensen has had limits for the last two weeks, lots of fish to five pounds and pools generally eight or nine. Best fish of the season have been bulldogs of 11 and 13 pounds. Drops from east of Fishers Island to Rocky Point (East Marion) have all been producing. There are still bluefish around in a few places, chopping up blackfish coming to the top.   (more…)

Aboard the Captain Bob V on Tuesday, Bob Ceglowski figured the recent fishing on the Sound had been “incredible” with tremendous numbers of fish each day. The big party boat sails a fall schedule out of Mattituck Inlet, Friday through Tuesday, working blues, bass, scup and sea bass. Typically, the boat sees hundreds of bluefish, six to 10 keeper stripers, and more than 200 scup and sea bass on a good trip. From websites we see that the Prime Time 3, sailing out of Orient by the Sea has some spots available on scup/tautog trips (seven a.m.) on Saturday, October 12 and from Monday, October 14 through Friday, October 18. There are places available on night bass trips (four p.m.) on Saturday and Sunday nights, October 12 and 13. Anglers should call on 631-323-2618 for reservations. Also, the fishing for scup and sea bass on the Peconic Star II out of Greenport has been very, very good of late. (more…)
