Tropical Storm Isaias did little to change Augusts grip on the surf scene. Most of the Island continues to lack any reliable striped bass or bluefish action, with a few exceptions on the East End. Both Montauk and Orient saw good bluefish action over the past week while casters working South Shore and South Fork inlets had to settle For some sporadic action with cocktails and a pick of Spanish mackerel. Albies and bonito remain missing in action but they should be making their presence felt within the next couple of weeks. Fluke are a good source of rod bending action from inlet shorelines but keepers remain a hard to come by commodity in most areas. Lots of people are asking the status of The Fishermans September Surf/Inshore Show at the Hilton. After careful consideration, it was decided to cancel this years show, but we already have next years date booked. Hopefully, we will all be in a better place in 2021. On the access front, it seems plover restrictions have relented in most areas with access now to the west and east jetties of Moriches Inlet, and the entire stretch of Napeague. We also appear to have escaped any closures due to the effects of Isaias.
