Sorry for the late report, but there was is not too much to report. I went out Saturday afternoon after taking the pooch out for a morning beach walk. He was acting old and bored so I took him home and went out solo.

I heard rumors on a 11+ pound doormat caught last weekend in local waters. Those rumors were confirmed during the week, and I ran into the guy who caught it just before I headed out. All I asked was "how deep" and went on my way.

I headed to deeper water off Cranes Neck and tried everything I had available. Killies, spearing, GULP!, and squid all were tried in different ways to no avail.

I moved around a good amount and tried shallower spots that usually produce something. Nope, no porgies, no sea robbins, no short fluke, and even no yellow eyed devils.

I had to mug a boat to get into my (formally known as) Honey hole". These folks have been parting hard all summer and have been a constant sight.

The honey hole was even dry. After just about 3 hours of NOTHING I headed in to drift the cans. First drift I hooked up with a short fluke. As I am getting him off the hook the deadsicking pole goes off.

Another fluke, but at least he was about 18" or so. Made a few more drifts and picked at 6 more shorts for an hour or so. They all seemed to be right on the ledge.

Nice Boat!

I saw the boat there a ll weekend, maybe it was scaring the fish away!Shades

I had lo luck there from the surf too; I think the fish migration has changed away from SB-SM channel to outside by Shithtown Short Beach - Long Beach across to Port Jefferson. I think the last drench job screwed things up, and expect worse next year because they will do it agin this winter.
