    Hello out there,
    Does anyone know if there are any Stripers left hanging around the south shore of Long Island. Will be fishing mainly out of Atlantic Beach and Jones Inlet. Reading some of the reports it seems like most of the larger fish have advanced to the East and North as usual this time of year, but due to maintenance issues on the boat I wasn't able to get her in the water until recently and would like to hit tune my skills before the fall run. I understand that your "secret" spots will remain a secret but any information available will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks and see you out there!!!

    Was out yesterday out of fire island inlet and found pods east and west but the bass themselves were scarce. But the 2 bass we ended up with we're both over 36.

    The night fishing to the west is excellent. Local bass to 20lbs. The big suckers on the bunker schools are scarce.

    I fish Reynold's channel pretty regularly at night in my 19' Seaway CC. Have been consistently catching bass on buck tails and swim shads. All between 20"-25" too small to keep but fun to catch. Haven't had a big one in a month. I guess I gotta get outside one of these mornings.

    The bass seem to be moving in this week, over the weekend found bunker up in the bay a drifted them in the inlet for one nice bass and a few runoffs. Soon is right sounds like the head boats are doing well on the west bar but i hate chumming and fishing clams theres something about catching live bait that turns me on.

    Hello

    I have been fishing the jones debs and beyond area my whole life. Grew up on Reynolds channel and would consider myself an expert bass fisherman. Unfortunately my old man is selling his house on the bay and bought a new one on the north shore and took my/his boat up to the sound. If your still feeling like you could use some intel I can def help.

    Thanks for the offer. Ive just started fishing more around reynolds and off the beaches, mostly trolling off the beach but would like to get into more of the live eel, bunker, clam action in and around the bridges. From what I can tell so far the bass have not yet moved into the area, however that could just be that im not hitting the right spots at the right times. The blues are all over the place. For now i guess ill just keep trying different techniques at different times until i find what works for that moment. Ill be out fo town at work for the next 3 weeks and hope there is still action when I return home. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Gotcha best fall fishing around here is from nov 15 till the end of December. Last few years did really well with jigs and live bait. The fall run really doesnt start till the herring show up. Fishing the live herring late in the season is the best at far as I'm concerned, fish can be big or small whatever comes down the beach. chumming in the inlets can be good for the next month but the conditions need to be right, the more white water the better. There are spots where you can always go and chum them up but most of the fish are small. Drifting the inlets with different types of live bait can score bigger ones but they are few and far between. By any chance are you from RVC? We may have a mutual friend. My name is JB

    Fished all day sat for one small keeper and a short. Bait seemed very scarce after the rain on friday and conditions made working the beach with my crew undesirable. Looking to fish this friday and sat but hoping for better condition and some pods off the beach would be ideal.
    Has anyone been able to work pods off the beach recently i feel like they are running late this year?
