02 Oct Fall Bass Bite on Eels – Red Hot!
Tara and Michael from the Cornell Cooperative Extension had over 20 striped bass ranging from 26 to 38 inches. All of the fishing was done using eels. Most of the fish were well over 28 inches. At least a dozen fish were over 33 inches. The fish were caught in four different spots throughout the trip. However, some of the spots held fish that just didn’t want to bite! Fortunately, the Long Island Fishing Charter boats are very fast and can cover a lot of ground.
The migration is well under way and the incredible abundance of bait makes for some very easy fish. The fish have been easy to find and easy to catch. This bite is just going to keep getting better in the weeks ahead.
This was mostly a deep water trip. Capt Joby is planning a shallow water trip on Friday. Stay tuned!
