Dont let everyone discourage you about the area, there is some good fishing around the Patchogue area. Last year we had some very good Weakfishing in the deeper areas off of Davis Park and Watch Hill, also right off Patchogue river. We also did good on the shell beds off of Bayport and Sayville. These patterns seen to be developeing this year as well as some good fish have already been taken. These areas are only a short run from where you are. Shrimp touts twister tail grubs and rubber worms all work well, as well as the standard high hook rig drifted with a flag of squid. Good fishing.
