pulled up to a bunch of other 4x4 dis morning at smith point with snow mixed in wit rain.. saw the old timers pulling in +6# bluefish, so I snapped my Hopkins 2.5 oz on and started casting... the old timers were out fishing me 5 to 1..

wit the blitz on, he yells to me, put a tube on that Hopkins and it made da difference wit more hook ups..

fun to watch was da big black back gulls gliding at da surf line picking up sandeels at will...
packing up for home, those other fisherman were happy to let me have their share for a total of 15 bluefish or so.
At canal street Chinatown, I opened da hatchback, opened a water hydrant, washed da bluefish off and sold em for $5.00 each...

that all happened +35 years ago today, memories... cellfish...
.

Today was a repeat of Monday’s blitz, that all happened +35 years ago today, the Wednesday and Monday of thanksgiving eve as a most memorable time.. with a time to be thankful for a fun fishing season, wit time to enjoy the holidays and pack up da poles... cellfish...🙏🇺🇸🎣

Any scouting being done? Bait? Bunker? I have been stuck at work 6.5 days a week. Will free up soon and start scouting. I have some friends beginning to come out of hibernation. I will share if they get out.

Fire Island Inlet / Islip
I was out at Smiths Point Tues & Thurs.

Nobody but a few walkers on Tuesday, Thurs I saw a guy wadding and casting.

I was casting after a walk with wife while she picked shells.
My penn surf caster rod & reel hauled in some very clean looking weeds but the water is too cold, nothing there.

It was fun, on my walk back the other guy was gone.
He seamed to be doing the same as me, just getting a good feel of it all.

Fun, I have not taken that set up out in years.

Thinking of trying demo in a few weeks.

My brother in law was out yesterday in Moriches by boat but in areas we fish from the surf. Cold water, no real life noted.

So, the upcoming weather could be a catalyst for a burst of surf action. Inlet areas, dropping tides, and piles and piles of all kinds of baits in the bay that may leak out with the NE, NNE wind. It is September, you know! :) Of course between deadlines at work, and family items, I will miss this weather event. Just my thoughts. Good luck if anyone can give it a shot.

, it should be obvious
While my chest x-ray yesterday showed only liquid and probably not pneumonia, the bronchitis has definitely gotten the best of me. I haven't fished in two weeks and won't again until probably May. Best of luck to anyone today or tomorrow. I am done. (but hoping I still get another shot or two for Bambi's grandparents)

In seven drives down to my town' open ocean beach in October and November, I tallied one just made it slot, two schoolies, a cocktail and a large snapper. No trash fish as I eschew bait but can say this was not exactly a memorable fall run for me.

Was a decent November and first few days of November. Tons of micro to king rats and a handful of keeper fish. I don’t ever post real time surf reports due to report chasing idiots. That’s what killed Nor’east

Glad you got out and enjoyed! Would have been nice to see some vague reports, but to each their own. I spent more time in a boat, and like what seems to happen to me at crucial fish times, I needed to slow the fishing and study for a certification in 10 weeks, that if I knew sooner, I would have liked six months and taken classes instead of self learning!! So be it, I am healthy and will be ready for the spring.
