You ever fish for Tommycod? Assuming you have, or have stumbled upon them, do you know where on either shores of Long Island you can get these little guys? I understand the winter months are usually the best time and usually at night. Is that right?

Hello,
Yes, during my younger years, I used to target feisty tommycod approximately this time of the year at Shinne**** Canal (when the locks are closed)! I?ve also encountered small tommycod along the side walls of the Brooklyn Belt Parkway.

As far as tackle goes, you need ultralight tackle tipped with sandworms.

Raregroove,
That?s great that you are taking your son out at that age! :)
Right now I don?t have my fish identification book with me ? but all I can say is? these fish are panfish size (small) and looks like small codfish (not the same species)!

If you are looking to target winter species around the western sound? You may want to try the feisty white perch! These are more abundant than the tommies and a lot more fun to catch. ;)
