That Time of Year
East winds are common early in the fall and while it seems nice on the land, the ocean is turned up due to the onshore flow. While driving over the Verrazano bridge yesterday, I could see the swells crashing over the shallow spots on the Coney Island flats. I think we could still catch some fluke if we were allowed to, but that season is closed. The ocean bottom fishing should be good once things settle down, but that may take another week. Striped bass reports have been dismal and the only option would be trying to jig blues in the bay. I will keep an eye on the weather and fishing for the weekend.
