Long Island, Metro NY - North Shore Fishing Reports

Long Island/Metro Winter Fishing Reports -Lure Giveaway

Excellent fishing days are ahead of us for this time of the year. With high temperatures in the mid-40s and 50s, it almost makes for an early spring-like feeling. Take advantage by trying out a lake for trout on some light tackle or maybe even pickerel and largemouths bass. The tidal creeks have small stripers and white perch in them and they should get active with the warmer days. Also tune into the video this week and follow instructions for a chance to win three lures from Berkley, an event reminder and more reports from the video contributors.
