Fished out in front of Hemp. last night in 47' the whole outgoing tide, full high to full low nothing much doing saw one guy fighting something as I passed him. Everyone else out there probably caught but me the way things are going so far. Once the storm passed the water was like glass about 10 p.m. bunker started splashing everywhere but not schooled up but managed to snag one whic gave me only one run-off from a small blue. It seems like from the reports all the action is in early-early a.m., or the outgoing tide. Haven't had a chance to be out in the a.m.. Where are the fish? My luck has sucked. i am using only fresh bait chumming like crazy at all the spots that produced last year. I even abandoned my spots and just fished over marked bait I always wind up being 100-200 yards away from every other boat out there and get nothing then everyone else has these amazing reports.

we'll give it a try tonite opposite where you fished - outside mamaroneck either inshore near the rocks or else off 42 on LBRLSCK's boat and he'll probably post since I'm leaving for PA this wknd. they were out a couple of nites ago and saw some action in about 20feet of water if I remember correctly.

Jets, you're not alone - we fished the first half of the outgoing this morning in the rain for nothing but a bunch of half hearted taps from blues, and LOTS of crabs - pulled up one big calico crab.

Same spot, tide, and time that I caught two 18 lbers two days ago. More bunker out today though.

I figure it will get more consistent as time goes by. I'm going to try some of my spots on the Larchmont/M'neck/Rye side soon too.

Don't always believe everything you read

Until you see some pics, hopefully most are the truth but.. Smile.. Keep at it.. Once the pressure goes up the swim bladders will be happy

I fished with some friends Friday night from 7:30 to 11:00 with no action in front of Hemstead. Even the party boats were moving around, so I guess they weren't doing well either.

got out fri nite out of mamaroneck with lbrlssck and my brother and our friend andrew for the outgoing with chunks and chummed in a spot that drops from 14 to over 20 feet wherfe a guy was getting fish a couple of days before but we didn't get anything for an hour or so. Picked up and hit another spot thats been good on outoging also at the same depth and it was slow for an hour and a half then I got a 24" and later a 28" and then my brother got one that was jsut shy and then andrew got one that was short and we missed a couple of hits. Then capt lbrlssck gets slammed on a bunker head that was 44" and fat. He can decide for himself whether to post his pic with the fish but here it is back at the dock. Thanks for another nice nite on the water Bob
