Iím a little out of touch this week since I spent most of it working on a boat problem The port engine didnít suck. I had

The fluke fishing is still holding up remarkably well, and you donít have to travel a dozen miles west any more. The fish
have moved closer to the point and even the half day boats are doing well with good size fish.
Striped bass fishing is also very good. For the last couple of year we had somewhat of a lull in the bass fishing in mid
summer, but it hasnít happened yet, and if it hasnít happened by now it probably wonít. The average size of the fish
being caught is still up there too.
Offshore the tuna fishing is a little disappointing. Apparently there are still some bluefins over by the Fairway Buoy, but
not many and it is easier to not catch one than to be successful. Offshore what yellowfins there are are on the small side,
and no sign of any longfins at all. The most yellowfins are around the 400 line, but the better size fish, along with
bigeyes are south of the edge. There are a surprising amount of white marlin out there.
Shark fishing is still on the slow side, since there are few blue sharks around. But there are makos and threshers, so if
you catch a shark, itís probably going to be the right type.
