The fluke fishing in Shinnecock bay is tough. Some days they’re there, some days not. Keep moving throughout the bay to find them.
Squid, spearing, and gulp are all working. Bass are in the inlet but a keeper is a struggle. Big bluefish continue to move throughout the bay, inlet, and ocean, chasing bait. Some bigger bass have been found outside in the ocean under the bunker schools for those trolling Mojo rigs and doing the snag and drop on bunker method. The ocean fluke bite is slow but the sea bass are there on the reef and surrounding pieces just waiting for Sunday, June 23.
The porgy bite is at Rogers Rock, Jessups, and Roses Grove areas, along with some weakfish and blowfish in the mix. Not hearing much on the fluke here. Find the bunkers schools and the bluefish should not be fair away.
The Shinnecock Canal still producing porgies north of the locks along with a few fluke. The Shinnecock inlet has fluke, blues, and bass for those on the rocks. Over at the Ponquogue Bridge/Pier fluke, bass, and bluefish are hanging around the structure. The ocean beaches both east and west of the inlet are producing schoolie bass on the dawn and dusk tides.
