August 18, lots of fish around, some picky

Well on Plum Island and the surrounding areas you just have to be in the right place at the right time. Live mackerel are working great in the mouth of the river, both from the jetty and from boats. The commercial guys have been getting their limit for the last couple of days. The Flats are busy with fish, but they have been hard to entice to lures or the tube and worm. The water temp there yesterday was 77 degrees, so you can imagine they are a little lazy, just like the rest of us during this heat wave.

.

The last few days have been hit or miss on the beach, but there is a reliable report of snapper bluefish over the last few days on the falling tide trapping juvenile herring or silversides against the beach and chopping them up. Topwater lures, like a Spook, ar the fun items to catch blues with. You might be wise to clip off a few hooks from the trebles to make your life easier getting the blues off the hook once you land them.

North side of the jetties has been stacked with bass, but they are finicky. And we got a good report about Plum Island Sound at night. The parking lots that are open on the Reservation have some good feeds. Once again, depends when you’re there and they’re there.
