Long Island, Metro NY - South Shore Fishing Reports

Long Island, Metro Video Fishing Forecast February 29, 2024

A couple of big events are in the pipeline this week for the region. Starting Thursday at 12 p.m. and running through Sunday, the Empire State Outdoors expo will be up in Suffern at the location of the old Suffern event. Then, on Saturday will be the big one-day show at Ward Melville High School hosted by the Patriots Fishing Club – both events are a cannot miss! A few cod reports trickled in during the week, and we saw the usual trout, along with perch action – both the yellow and white variations. We hope to see you at either of the events, which The Fisherman Magazine will be at renewing subscriptions and signing up new subscribers.
