I know how to find & fish for porgies. I have been fishing for over 50 years and I've learned a thing or two!
There was virtually no drift, no wind and the water was almost without a ripple. We fished the Ebb, and even off the point at Cranes Neck, we barely moved!
We fished near some of the Port Jeff party boats for a while, and watched them to see what was happening. I never saw a single fish go over the side all the time I was watching. Same story with all the private boats that I observed. There wern't even any sea robins, believe it or not. Just a ton of jellyfish. My one short fluke was the only bite of the day, and the only fish I saw anywhere. It was like fishing in the dead sea.
