lots of catching up to do...

we sailed for cod all winter..when we could get out ..WITH GOOD SEA CONDITIONS....always caught cod,red hake, and a few Pollock...extremely windy winter so we didn't get out that much...but it was good fishing!

right now we are doing porgy/ fluke combo trips..porgy fishing has been off the charts!..giant peconic porgies... weakfish and some nice fluke have been in the daily catches...limits on porgies..30 per person..has not been difficult...bluefish have showed in great numbers to add to the melay..

starting our half day trips this memorial day weekend we will concentrate on shinnecock bay fluke..fish over 5 lbs are not uncommon..with the 18 inch size limit/ 5 fish per man ... this year we should be taking a lot of fillets home..

as the season progresses our catches will include striped bass, seabass,bluefish and tackle busting triggerfish...the occasional thresher...or even a mako might surprise!

so....LETS GO FISHING!...the season is already off to a blistering start!

thanks, capt john and crew SHINNECOCK STAR

GREAT OCEAN BITE THIS MORNING..14 KEEPER FLUKE AND LOTS OF NICE SEABASS..AFTERNOON BAY FLUKE BITE WAS EXCELLENT BUT NO KEEPERS SO WE HEADED OUT AND PUT A FEW FLUKE AND SEABASS IN THE BOX..


July 31, 2010

this morning we hopped around the ocean..keeper here.. keeper there..caught about a half doz keeper fluke...thanks to the seabass it wasnt a washout..we put 30 or so BSB in the box...

afternoon..even though not the best tide for the bay we banged up the shallow water flatties pretty good..a dozen up to 5 lbs..lots of action...we will start off in the bay tomorrow and work outside if we have to...so many bucktailers looking for that shallow action..i had a guy working a 3 oz spro in 55 feet today..and scoring pretty good!..see you out there..call 631-728-4563 and..you know it..book-a-spot-with-dot..thanks, captain john , shinnecock star



another hot tip..find some 5/8 fuzz-e-grubs..nothing like them for fluke..if you have any other bucktail recomendations i would LOVE to hear them...fuzz-e-grubs are all but extinct..last load i picked up on ebay..about 500 of them..and i know they have followed the penn 155..why do they stop making things that are reliable and work well?

July 13, 2009

after 4 days of red hot fishing the last 2 days have been a bit off..the fish cant eat 24/7...regrouping..i have seen it before..its only a matter of days..perhaps today..where they really go on the feed again...that being said..i too have "off" days..i suggest to anyone looking for a "bail job" every trip to stay at home and watch ESPN... but if you are looking for a captain who will give you 110% EFFORT ON EVERY TRIP TO FIND FISH...I BE THE MAN...

even with the "slow down" we put 7 in the box yesterday morning and 10 in on the afternoon trip..alot more action on the outgoing than the in...


July 9, 2009

bay bite has slowed a bit..still piles of sandeels on the incoming...finding the biggest fluke along the edges of what little eelgrass beds we have left in shinnecock..managed 15 keeper fluke today working around..i ended up in the basket late in the incoming this eve and was happy to pull a few decent fish out of the east end of the bay...
anyone know what the last photo is?...it was slimy like an eel with a big knucle head and barbels..i thoiught i have seen everything..a bay fluke spit it up...
i just read a post by seacock which explains what i have been seeing on the ocean a bit lately...seagulls working over swirls...no terns...didnt have the "baits" but i was pretty sure they were bass...we did catch a few nice fluke in the same area.. i guess the fluke like the sandeels too...
any new customers who mention they read this report get a quick 10% off their first trip...any regular customer who brings me a new face get a shinnecock star tee..res-a-must.captain john, shinnecock star

P.M. trip i was at the helm..we had the Cox family out for an afternoon...we picked away at alot of decent keepers..then..."it" happened...

i had my rod deadsticked in a holder..and she began to bounce...being the lazy guy i can be.. i pointed it out to one of the charter group and he reeled..and reeled..and reeled..deena struggled to get this "shinnecock halibut" in the net..but scooped her nicely...12lbs.10 oz.!!...that will teach me to move a bit quicker!..i was glad the lad landed this beauty..and to my amazement..the group decided to let her go to fight another day...we weighed her in on the digital..a pic..and back she went ...it was great!!..biggest fish on the star this year goes back!!..awesome!!

The Shinnecock Star was SHINING this morning for the Noreast Fluke Bucktailing Seminar!!

Lots of fluke action, Captain John kept us on the fish as usual.  Captain Neil gave the lowdown on rods, and ReelTeaser shared the ins and outs of bucktails and teasers.  All in all, the instructive part of the seminar was well stated and very informative, especially for me since I had never bucktailed before!

Special thanks to ReelTeaser, who loaned me a rod and reel when mine proved to be too light.  Thanks to his kindness, I was able to boat 2 keepers on this trip.

5/11/2007 report by Joe

Better than yesterday for me!  Went out east with my brother to fish with Captain John for fluke.  The bonus was the distinct pleasure to fish with the great Captain Neil F.  We had 9 fares.  Captain John took us over to the Greenlawns area and in front of Claudios in Greenport.  We had a slow steady stream of fish for most of the day.  However, mostly shorts but we got our fair share of keepers among us.  Not sure how many we ended up with.  I'll leave that to Captain John to post, but among the fluke we also scored some blusfish and a seabass.  My talley was 4 shorts and 2 keepers.  The larger of the two in the picture below was approx 4 lbs.  Pool fish was slightly larger.  My brother was frustrated with 7 shorts.  It's tough landing 18" and 19" inch fluke only to throw them back.  My shorts were all caught on a chartruse set up.  I then switched over to pink and picked up the 2 keepers.  The larger of the two was caught by Claudios.  We lost the drift 2/3rds of the way through, but Captain John power drifted to keep the fish motivated.  Another beautiful day weather wise once the fog burned off.  In one of the pictures you can see some of the other keepers in the background.

What a great day to be on the Shinnecock Star!  The ocean was calm, drifting with a power assist sometimes was good, about 12 anglers so there was plenty of room and we had action.

Oh how it hurts to throw back 19+" fluke.  About 12 fluke hit the kooler with the pool fluke at 7 lb, nice fish.

Was great to see all you guys again, also Deena and Capt John.

This is the time of the year I try to catch my big dream fish soI fished a big rig for almost 5 hours.  No such luck today.  BUBBA is still out there hiding on me.  Finally I switched to my hi/lo teaser set up and during the last hour boated 5 very nice fluke but no keepers for me.  Still a great day for me.
