Smile COMBS: BIG NEWS - BIG FISH!

Hello, Fellow Anglers

Just a few minutes ago a monster fluke was weighed in.

Chet Green's flattie registered 14.00-pounds on our certified digital scale

Chet told us he connected with the big boy at the State Channel near Pole 17. His rig consisted of a bucktail with a plain hook tied above
that was tipped with spearing. The fluke hit the spearing. Chet also said that the flattie sought its freedom by diving for the bottom three times before it was subdued.

The shop's hours are now 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily and closing at 3 p.m. on Sunday. (631) 264-3525.

BE SAFE - ENJOY LIFE - GO FISHING!

All the Best

Smile COMBS - WEEKEND FORECAST 06/16/17

Hello, Fellow Anglers

I took a busman’s holiday during the week and went fluking with my friends Ronnie and Tommy. We connected with 50 shorts and three keepers to 22-inches. We found loads of flatties in the vicinity of the 2nd and 3rd Wantagh. Both tides were productive for us and spearing is the name if the game right now. It out fished all the other baits. The top colors for a teaser or bucktail was chartreuse or green.

We also discovered that there is a good population of fluke west of the Wantagh between the 3rd Wantagh and the Jones Beach Piers on the south side. Bay Mike dropped by on Thursday and told us he targeted Squaw Island near buoy 60 and encountered 30 short fluke and three keepers from 19 to 22-inches. He used a Terminator bucktail tipped with local spearing. Mike Regruto found his action at Massapequa Cove as he employed a small grass shrimp teaser tipped with spearing and tied above the bucktail. He limited on fish to 23-inches.

The water in the bay is warming up nicely and is at or above 70 degrees so the fluke are becoming more aggressive. Therefore, they are responding well to bucktails and teasers. The summer flatties are spread throughout the bay so be prepared to work the waters from the shallows and down to the 30-ft. ranges. The further west you go the cleaner the water. Start your fishing from the Lindenhurst Cut and head westward.

Fluking on the outside remains slow but is gaining speed. The top areas right now are the McAllister Grounds and the Hempstead Reef. As for Fire Island head outside and hit the FI Reef along the 60-ft. drops.

Bass activity is still very good. Russ went to the 3rd Wantagh today and the last of the outgoing produced a dozen bass. On the outside striper activity was hit or miss on Mojo rigs and bunker spoons. Anglers found fish from 35 to 45-ft. all the way out to the three-mile limit.

This week is the last opportunity to sign up for our Annual Duke of Fluke Contest. You have until Saturday the 24th at 7 p.m. Don’t miss out. We run one the finest Fluke Tournaments on Long Island.

We have all the baits you will need for your weekend fishing excursions. Clams, clam bellies, local spearing, Peruvian spearing, baby "one hook shot" squid, whole local squid, hand cut squid strips and bunker.

The shop's hours are now 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily and closing at 3 p.m. on Sunday. (631) 264-3525.

BE SAFE - ENJOY LIFE - GO FISHING - ENTER THE DUKE OF FLUKE TOURNAMENT!

All the Best
