whats with this place??? I had 1 good day of fishing down there last year beating up on the kingfish...

Ive been there too many times over the last few months and Ive caught NOTHING not a sea robin no nothing....

all I ever hear about is how good this dock " used to be" but so far.. no dice.. what gives??

I mean my only guess is that its shallowed up over the years and thats the main problem along with the lack of water clarity....

I moved into the area this year and tried out the docks on Ocean Ave on the full moon, granted it was windy as **** not even one solid nibble. The local B & T on River & Division told me that other anglers were having an ok time and mentioned the kingfish as well. I spoke with one of the guys down at the dock and he said most nights you can get blues. WTF? Not even a shy bite.

Is it too early for the kingfish?

I agree. I tend to keep my tackle box right in view yet folks were passing under & such. 1-2 months out? Hmm..The b & t manager said otherwise but I bet it was a bit premature to expect to find them there.

ok, I know which spot you mean. Out of curiosity, I've been using google maps to seek out spots when I haven't been able to drive around, but on the map for the area, right beside the L there seems to be a formation of rocks to it's left on the map. Do you know if that is so? I mean it seems plausible to fish off of there. Any/All help would be great.
Sandspit? Mascot? Are these slang names for some of these spots or am I missing the obvious?

Sandspit, is a Marina with a fishing dock, as well as two jetties.. the east jetty is fishable if you are extremely well equipped with korkers and good balance and no beer..

The west jetty is long and flat and more user friendly...

Mascot dock aka the "L" dock is in very shallow water until the end of the "L"..

I know of no rockpiles near the L dock but Sandspit borders the Patchogue river. I've had better luck at nearby docks but I'll leave it at that.

Thank you for responding, the jetties you just mentioned I saw yesterday when I went there. Thank you for elaborating on that part.

your not allowed to fish there anymore because a bathing beach is nearby.

Hmm, I saw people at the far east end of the beach on a narrow pier, but I can understand on the bathing shoreline.

I have only fished 1x there so far, used mackerel at the time, but it was a crappy night with heavy winds and I couldn't discern whether or not the bait was even getting nibbled on. The b & t nearby did mention clams were having an ok response but nothing spectacular.

One of the guys downthere said blues were common as of late.
