Saltwaters Tackle Inc in West Islip has first word of bluefish action, this morning, posting on their Facebook page:
On a serious note, there are some people hunting for flounder but no one catching yet or talking about it. Schoolie bass are making a few appearances, and there are some blackfish being caught, no specifics.
From Leaza M Greenroad-ford
My name is Leaza and I am representing Fish It Real Good women’s billfish team. We are looking for sponsors to help us enter and fish in the Pescadora Billfish Championship in Costa Rica in February 2020.
To have the opportunity to fish The Pescadora Billfish Championship would be a great honor and it possesses the potential to open doors to promote our love of fishing and display my team’s passion and our message that all should “Love, Reel and Sea with their whole heart” to the world! Two of the team members began as my fish sisters “Hermana de Pesca” when I was invited to fish La Diosa Del Mar, an international women’s billfish tournament in Puerto Morelos, MX., in 2018. They are both incredibly beautiful women inside and out and have taken me under their protective wings throughout my house purchase in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. They are not only my fish sisters and my neighbors but also dear friends. The other team member is a cherished friend of 9 years who is my Texas neighbor; her love for the water and passion for fishing reflects my own. This team will represent Texas and Mexico, our passion for the sea and our undying belief that love and pride are borderless and color blind.
I am actively seeking sponsors to make it possible for my team to fish the two day Billfish Championship in Quepos, Costa Rica at the highly acclaimed Marina Pez Vela where we will compete with the world’s top lady anglers. Two top lady angler awards are being presented: one for the female who reels in the most fish (hook and hand) and the other is for the female that hooks and reels in her own fish (IGFA rules apply). This is in addition to first, second and third place for the most billfish caught and successfully released per team. Last year there were 512 billfish caught in two days by just 22 boats, which is why this tournament is a must fish for me and my team!
We would be so very grateful with any help you can offer us and will proudly sport your company’s logo on our gear and publicize your company’s graciousness on all of our social media and public platforms as this is an international tournament, your company’s support will be witnessed by many!
Thank you in advance for your contribution. You have no idea how much it means to all of us to have your support. This is truly a life changing opportunity!
A portion of proceeds from winnings will go to C.A.S.T for Kids Foundation – The C.A.S.T. for Kids Foundation enriches the lives of children with special needs, supports their families, and strengthens communities through the sport of fishing, with events across America. The donation of the proceeds should we win will be made in your company’s name, if you so choose.
The links that follow contain information on The Pescadora Championship along with our GoFundMe link should you decide to help us achieve global status among the top lady anglers.
Again we thank you from the bottom of our tackle boxes!!!

Gulp baits are working best, but so is traditional squid and spearing bait combinations, a strip of white fluke belly might produce a big whole one for you.
Both Captain Bryan and Captain Jimmy are going wherever the fish are but lately, one sure stop on each trip has been the pocket of the sore thumb off Oak Beach, gulp baits definitely your best and they have them on board for sale, other baits are free as are boat Rod and reel…
The Island Princess sales at 7 a.m. noon and 6 p.m. the Night Trips were for Bluefish and the day trips are primarily fluke sometimes the Blowfish show up in good numbers it depends on the day. Because of the weather and time of year you might want to call ahead 631-587-6024 you can make a reservation you can buy your tickets online at islandprincessCaptree.Com
Notice that the left side of the fish 🐟 in this picture is lighter than the right side. Some smart-ass said that’s the shadow of the top deck blocking the 🌞 Sun and we were taught trying to pull a fast one because we couldn’t think of anything to write today, so we decided to stop right h
some of the happiest couples i have ever seen in my life met on fishing party boats , or one of their first dates was to go fishing together. ask anyone…. “DO YOU LIKE FISHING?” and that’s the ice-breaker around the world folks, trust me on that one… and it doesn’t matter if you’re looking for a date or just passing the time of day…
more to come…
What a nice morning on the #IslandPrincessCaptree yesterday Wednesday 11th of September 2019. This is my nicest fish of the day. I had a bunch of other throwbacks, also a big blowfish on a Gulp believe it or not, along with some big sea robins. There were some really nice Seabass, and some Triggerfish, one of which was just really big probably the biggest (how big WAS it, Bill? GEEZ! I thought we told you we’re not worried about the word count here just make it sound real) one I’ve ever seen coming out of the Bay don’t remember if I saw a kingfish or not but it was just a tremendous mixed bag. If you can get in on this action you ought to do it it is wonderful.

It’s still drift and Dreamtime folks, Labor Day 2019 is hereNice half day on the Island Princess 7-11 and noon to 4 pm. Evening Bluefish striped bass, weakfish trips wonderful sunset experiences 6 to 10 pm.
Fantasy photo caption imagined by starry-eyed dailysaltwater’s own Bill Purkins, alas, the lady on the right was not actually on the boat, but rather just in the will you still need me will you still feed me 64 year old drift and dream thoughts that run across one’s mind when picking through steady action on a gorgeous day on Great South Bay. Hat by Island Princess, Mr. Purkins’ hair and makeup Come As You Are, the beauty of the half-day fishing trip out of Captree whichever boat you choose, all you need to bring is yourself, you pay your fare, you take your chances, you might remember to bring sunscreen and your lunch, but you can always stop at Tiki Joe’s right at the dock and they’ll have your lunch ready and waiting for you, or they’ll even bring it to the boat, just the way you like it, you can even call them ahead. Bring a friend, bring the whole family, Bring It On, it’s the easiest way to have fun on the greatest place to fish in the world, Long Island.
Overheard on a half-day party boat:
“Yes, they look bigger in the water.”
“Can you eat them?”
“We are not a barbaric Society. But YES… and if you don’t know how to cook them? Just ask any of the crew they will steer you in the right direction. Other questions often asked do I have to bring my own fishing pole? The answer is no. Rod and reel and old bait a courtesy of captain and crew. If you don’t know how to fish? They will give you instructions that great with kids it’s America’s Family fishing for. Captree State Park you can even Google it. Right at the very East End Of Ocean Parkway the same island that Jones Beach is on. Just keep heading for the sunrise bear to the left when you get to the end. What if you don’t know how to clean fish? The Bates will fillet your fish for you. And when they fillet it? No bones about it it is a boneless fillet. They’re good at it. Your happiness is their livelihood and happiness.
we have rules and regulations to protect our precious Marine Resources
