New York Fishing Reports

Giant sea bass

Yesterday me my dad and sister went fishing on the Miss Montauk. The fishing was very slow but very productive. My dad caught 2 fish the whole day but both were keepers a nice keeper fluke and a keeper sea bass. My sister had two fluke and 2 sea bass and two spiny dogfish all were short. I caught 3 sea bass 2 were giant and the other came off the hook as I was bringing it in not sure if It was a keeper or not. I also caught 2 blues and 4 short stripers biggest 26 inches. I caught all my fish on my 6 ounce hammered gold jig I ended up with 4 short stripers 3 sea bass 2 blues and 2 dogfish. My sister and dad were using gulp and spearing and squid. Nice calm day on the water. Day started off slow but picked up as the day went on. Looking forward to my next trip.

Nice catch! Fish or no fish at least you got to spend the day with your family.
