I think the summer is done, or at least whatever there was of it. The mornings are cool and it seems like there usually a
little cool breeze or slight gale happening. Sunday was pretty crappy on the inshore grounds, and more so offshore. Itís
that time of year when the charterboats start to come up with an attitude adjustment when it comes to wind. What was
too much in August, isnít really that bad now.
Unless there is some sort of a slight miracle, this is probably the last you will hear from me about tuna. Right now
wherever you go you might be able to catch some falsies, and maybe, if you are very lucky a small bluefin. Charterboats
with tuna trips are doing what we used to call shunering. Aim for the place they would like to shark fish, and before they
get there troll some plastics for a while before setting up their slick. But, no matter what kind of trip it was booked as,
make sure they carry the chum. Like we used to say about bluefish when the bass stocks were down, ďThank God for
Inshore the bass fishing has picked up some over the past week, but there are still lots of bluefish around to complicate
things. Bottom fishing for porgies, seabass and fluke remains steady.
The falsies are starting to show up in Gardinersís Bay, so it wonít be long now before we have in influx of flycasters
around The Point.
