Stripers Heading East - Blackfish & Cod On Reefs
The city and western island striper bite kept up through the week. We even heard some bigger fish are starting to make their way eastward on the island as well. Don’t forget this can be the best time of the year for the spring blackfish season as the water warms up. Codfish are still making a showing on the reefs and are keeping boat anglers busy when the tog bite is at a lull. The contributors have been out and about too and have plenty of local intel to share in this week’s forecast.

Anglers are not disappointed with bass activity. Artificials continue to score on fish in all areas and anglers who troll are doing well. The top spots have been at the Wantagh Bridges, Massapequa Cove, west of Debs Inlet, and the beaches at Gilgo and Tobay. To the west check out Jamaica Bay, Staten Island and Sandy Hook. Before the season ends take a shot at blackfish at one of the local reefs where keepers and shorts can be found.
