Just curious if anyone had any advice about some wading for blackfish.

I'd walk along the beach at low tide looking for rocky bottom that would be in casting distance during high tide. But as the temps cool the fish will be moving into deeper water. So I would do it now. If you find spots that look good and don't catch now. Try them again in the spring (if we have a season) and then again when the season opens next Oct.


Hey, it can't be Christmas everyday!!!!

Welcome to Noreast. up

I would go to local parks and see if they have jetties, docks or pilings....any type of structure that you can cast a crab to.up

Jetty

Is there not a large jetty in your town? It would be a good start. The bite has moved a little deep and is best now in 30 ft.

I have been poking around my area on google earth, I have seen plenty of good structure along the shoreline, but I just moved here and need to find out where to access. Hopefully I can get in and find these blackfish.

I just moved from Flushing to Glen Cove. I am very familiar with the manhasset bay and little neck bay from shore and from kayak, but I don't know where I can find legal access around here. I don't expect anybody to give me their honey hole obviously but any tips would be nice Shades

North shore has plenty of structure close to shore for early season black fishing. No kayak needed.
