Offseason Fishing Report 3-1-16


NEW YORK

Point Lookout

Just a few ling were scooped aboard Sunday on the party boat Captain Al, Capt. Tom Weiss said. No cod were caught, and dogfish were a nuisance. When cod are in, the boat targets them. Otherwise, the trips fish wrecks for cod, ling, pollock or whatever bites. The trips are slated for 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. every Friday through Sunday. See More Info. Call: 516-623-2248.

NORTH CAROLINA

Oregon Inlet

A 431-pound, 100-inch bluefin tuna was docked Saturday at Oregon Inlet Fishing Center, a report on the marina’s website said. On Sunday, another boat from the marina docked a 225-pound bluefin and a couple of yellowfin tuna. Visit Website.

Hatteras

Surf fishing was picking up, because the water was warming, a report said on the website from The Roost Bait & Tackle at Teach’s Lair Marina. Bluefish, sea mullet and puppy drum were beached. Three boats fished Saturday and Sunday from the marina. Golden tilefish and triggerfish were pumped in. One of the trips tried for blackfin tuna, but the angling was slow. Visit Website.

FLORIDA

Islamorada

Light wind and calm seas, beautiful conditions, are forecast for this week, said Capt. Bruce Andersen from Captain Easy Charters. “Hopefully that’s a sign of things to come,” he said. Quite a few king mackerel bit this past week. Sometimes sailfish were landed aboard. Stan Winnick from New Jersey’s trip reeled in two sails during the week. Yellowtail snappers gave up good catches at the reef. Trips aboard also deep-water bottom-fished, loading up on sizable vermilion snappers and yelloweye snappers, this past week. That was in 400 feet of water at hard-bottom ledges, some miles offshore of the reef. The reef is 3 to 4 miles from port. Big-game on trips, like the kings and sails, are caught just beyond the offshore edge of the reef. Call: 305-451-9578 or 305-360-2120. Visit Website.
