    I hear occasionally about some Rhode Island boats catching some school bluefin a little east of the Butterfish Hole but haven’t heard about any Montauk boats even giving it a shot.

    Inshore, there is not a lot of great things to say about the striper fishing. It’s very uneven, with one day being marginally OK and the next not that good. Even on the better days, the results vary from boat to boat with one bringing in a limit of six fish and throwing back a couple and another struggling to bring back two. The only way to catch them is with the parachutes. I went out one day commercially with the downriggers and umbrellas and could only catch three bluefish. It’s been a long time since anyone in Montauk has wished for more bluefish, but it would be nice to have them to fill in the dead spots.

    The fluke have left the south side and are mostly in the Rips now with about a third of the fish legal sized.

    Porgies are no longer at Cherry harbor, or at least the boats fishing for them are no longer there. Now all the action is at the point, and it’s pretty steady.
