The 2021 season is underway and the fishing has been spectacular. Early season jumbo porgys were in abundance. This has been the best weakfishing in many years. Bluefish have been varied in size but are always fun to catch. Fluking has been the only disappointment so far with keepers in short supply. Sea bass season began 2 weeks ago and the tasty fish have been cooperative. Please follow us on instagram @fishnorthforkllc or facebook www.facebook.com/fishnorthfork for current updates and pic.
We've delayed our charter bookings this summer due to COVID 19. I have been out fishing almost daily with family and a few close friends only. We are ready to start booking again. There is a 6 passenger limit for boat rides/local tours. Our fishing trips will be limited to 4 people initially. We may only allow a limited # of rods in the water. Passengers will be required to bring their own face coverings/masks and to wear them when on the dock and boat. All rules will be subject to modification at any time as per local regulations and the Captain's discretion. As always, your safety is our primary concern.
June started out with Jumbo North Fork Porgys and Striped Bass. By the 2nd week of June, the Bluefish moved into the bay. Finally the Weakfish started to show up. Fluke have been very spotty with mostly "shorts" less than 19 inch keeper size as well as some keepers mixed in. Black Sea Bass season opened in late June which should provide some tasty filets for the next few months.
A steady pick of fluke in the Greenlawns area of Southold Bay. Loads of sea robins. Some nice jumbo porgies on the porgy grounds.
The boat is waxed, painted, and detailed. Going into the water this week to take advantage of the last few days of the spring blackfish season. Fluke season opens on May 4th this year. Hopefully the weather continues to warm up. We are currently booking charter dates so contact us to reserve your trip for the 2018 season.
Jeff and Dede drove out from Indianapolis to experience the fantastic fishing and beautiful sights on the North Fork. Jeff bagged the biggest fluke of the season so far, 28 inches and over 7lbs. Nice job. Weakfish, porgys, seabass, and plenty of searobins rounded out the catch
