White perch fishing is a good way to cure that cabin fever. You should be able to find them in any tributary. I heard behind the taco bell in lindenhurst is holding some perch. I fish mostly out east for them. The hardest thing is to find them. Once you do, it's non stop action. They will circle away for awhile but usually come back. Once the tide starts to change you will have to find them again. I use a small lead head with a twisted tail grub tipped w/earth worm. A lot of guys use night crawlers. You will have to experiment with colors. Use an ultra light rod with 4lb. test and you will have a ball!!!
