Lots of anglers are catching 6" to 8" squid off the inside edge of the Eastern Point Breakwater with Sabiki rigs.
Anyone have a good spicy recipe for what to do with the fresh catch?
By the way, now that the Audubon Society runs the lot at the breakwater, don’t forget that it costs $5.00 to park there for the day!
As for access, tell the guard at the gate by Niles Beach that you’re headed for the breakwater. There’s a public right of way along the AEPR (Association of Eastern Point Residents) private speed-bumped roads.
As for Niles Pond, it’s a Great Pond open to public use.
Good morning fisherman!!!
So here’s the latest scoop, the bluefish are in, the toothy blue assassins are flushing out the mackerel making them harder to find, which only makes the live mackerel more valuable for people trying to live line for stripers.
There are plenty of squid around as we had a mate fill a bucket while sittin on one of our docked vessels two nights ago. Calamari for dinner!! Live lining squid like stated last week can be a very effective striper method if done at the proper time ( which is later at night with a moving tide).
It is absolutely the time to be slinging eels at night for stripers as the water temperature continues to rise, use a small live line hook, hooking the eel through the lower jaw and out an eye ball, it is important to get the eel in the water as quickly as possible as they will entangle themselves very quickly, it is also very important to hook through an eyeball that way the eel stays alive and presents a much better meal ( will present diagram below).
Flounder fishing continues to be good, with good fishing off of Niles beach. If you are new to the saltwater fishing scene come down and sign up for a harbor adventure tour! they run Friday and Saturday’s from 4:30 – 8:00 pm. These trips focus on stripers, mackerel, flounder and other inshore species. Let us do the driving and fish finding!
