Hi everyone,

This is my first post to Crazy-Al's board. For this particular question I decided to post here.

For the past two weeks I have been busy and have not fished much. So far this has been my best weakfish season! My largest going just over 29 inches 7.8lbs. This was the only one that was kept for the table all the others were released!

To answer a question posted by Crazy-Al recently I think weaks are my favorite species of fish w/ stripers coming in at a close second.

Anyway I have been catching these guys all over the place: Heck. Flats, Ocean Beach, the Range and East channels, S.B. channel, and other places.

Since I have not been out recently and since I have not seen any steady posted reports on weaks I am just wondering when does this fish leave? How long will weaks be around or are they gone? I also saw the thread on this board about the white foamy stuff being weakfish sperm; is this true? Is the spawn finished?

Finally, if you folks do not mind helping me, do these fish move closer to the inlet(s) at this time of year or should I still work the areas that have been producing fish for me?

I appreciate any help you can lend!

Thanks and God Bless the four lost brothers! >(((>

Hoping to here from others also!!!!


Please explain what you mean by "summer run into the bay". It is my understanding that they arrive at the beginning of May and stay towards the end of June.

Anybody else with any information for me...I want to beat that 29 incher.

Thanks, somoan
Thanks Doughboy,

I assume you mean the north side of the bay when you are refferencing sayville/bluepoint.

As far as snappers go, when do those little buggers come around? The end of June right?
