Last month I mentioned that the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) commented that there was concern about the health of the bluefish stock.  Well, to everyone’s surprise, including mine, they implemented new coast-wide regulations. Last year’s regulati...

Boy, this season is flying by. On June 28th I returned from an offshore trip only to find the back of my starboard engine was covered in oil. It turned out that the powerhead had a small crack. My boat was laid up the entire month of July. However, that didn’t stop me...

What a great start to the tuna season. In the month of June, I ran offshore/midshore five times.  We managed to find tuna on each trip. Not only did we find tuna, we found life that you only see on National Geographic. If you get a chance I posted some really cool vide...

What a wonderful month June is. It’s the month in which I got married, it’s the start of summer and most important (don’t tell my wife) it’s the month that tuna will reappear on our mid-shore grounds. This month offers so many choices. With the exception of blackfish a...

There are a lot of striped bass rumors going around. I have heard everything from a moratorium to banning surf fishing for striped bass. Let’s see if I can calm some of you down. I do not see in any way a moratorium being put in place. There are several reasons for tha...

With the striped bass season set to open on April 15th, many anglers are already talking about the 2020 season. That’s because a new benchmark assessment was done for 2018. The report concluded that striped bass are in a state of decline. If measurements aren’t put in...

Just about 60 days to go. I can’t wait to get the boat back in the water. The boat is a little too big to be kept in my driveway so I entrusted Moriches Boat and Motor to take care of it over the winter. This was my first year dealing with Moriches Boat and Motor and I...

I got very lucky…
I like to think that I have a lot of experience on the water. I realize that I have been fishing on my own boat for only 13 years. However, I average between 300 and 400 hours a year on the water. Keep that in mind as you read about an accident that I...

It’s hard to believe that the calendar already reads November.  Thankfully November has become my favorite fishing month.  In fact, the last few years all the way to the close of striped bass season (December 15th) we have seen great fishing. Even though most people wi...

It’s always sad to see the summer end but if you fish the south shore of Long Island things are about to heat up. Whether you fish the bay, like to “run” the beaches or are still fishing the edge there are plenty of species to keep you busy.
Blackfish/Tog opens up on O...
