2021 recap

Well..... All I can say about the 2021 season was WOW!!! 


  We saw some great fishing right off the bat in May with Porgies, Fluke, Striped Bass, Bluefish and WEAKFISH on the Peconic Bay side out towards Jessups Neck and The Lawns.

  As the water warmed up slightly in mid May we saw good fluke fishing in skinny water to the west in Shinnecock Bay. The 2021 Bay Fluke fishing was one of the best I've seen in years... Yes, many shorts caught and released but far more 19" plus keepers were caught straight through to end of September

  Striped Bass and Bluefish Showed up right on schedule and in good numbers. With the second season for the Striped Bass Slot regulations underway the first season of the Circle Hook Mandate kicked off in 2021.

  When fishing for Striped Bass using live or DEAD BAIT you must use a NON OFFSET Circle Hook.  For some it was a dramatic change from SETTING THE HOOK on a fish to a very light lift of the rod and start reeling. The term SET THE HOOK has new meaning but once those got the hang of it...FISH ON...

  Black Sea Bass was great with many limits from June through Sept. Not really an issue with a horrible 3 per person limit @ 15 inches... and a season that kicks off late June... Hopefully we see better regulations but I doubt it. 

   The one thing we can't control is weather... We had several weather cancellations but did manage to get some of those cancellations out on the water at a later date... 


  We would like to thank our customers both new and old for choosing to fish with us and we will always continue to do our very best to make your trip a fun, safe and memorable one. 

  We've started booking for the 2022 season early as dates fill up very fast. Summer months are usually booked by mid June to end of August so I always recommend booking early... 


Thanks for the continued support, 


Capt. Brad Ries
