I went to Tight Lines Tackle as usual this morning with my brother and dad to get the news on the fish and get all geared up. Snappers were on my mind today. I was even more inspired for catching them since my brother had caught one off the pier the other day. I asked Kenny, (the owner of Tight Lines Tackle) where to go for snappers. I had the pier on my mind, but we ended up going to Barcelona Point instead. I got my rod and tackle ready and cast out. A few minutes later, my brother Max had caught the first snapper of the day. There were snappers out, that was for sure! Soon, I was catching one snapper after the other. There was a small tide pool nearby, so we decided to put the fish in it. The original Rusty Hook record was 12 snappers in one day. Today I beat that record with fifteen snappers in less than two hours! Combining my snappers with the ones my brother caught, The Rusty Hook had caught 29 snappers in less than two hours plus a porgy and robin fish that my dad caught. In all, 31 fish were caught in Barcelona Point! Good luck, and I hope you catch some fish!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀
Maxie beats his 12 snapper catching record by catching 14 snappers in a day. Yesterday The Rusty Hook caught 29 snappers off the shore of Barcelona Point. That’s the most snappers The Rusty Hook has ever caught. My dad caught a huge porgy off Barcelona Point. So in all we caught 31 fish in Sag Harbor. So GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!😀😀😀😀
The most reliable bait for porgies is sand worms. They go crazy for sand worms! Just be careful when putting a sand worm on a hook, for these nasty suckers can bite. Our first time using sand worms, my mom put one on her hand not knowing that they bite. We learned our lesson after she yelled in pain. Also make sure to use weights, since porgies are bottom fish. Hope you catch some fish!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Careful with those worms!)
It is snapper season! They are finally biting. They are my personal favorite fish to catch. They are easy and fun. Use a snapper jig and cast out! We have not gone for snappers yet because of our busy schedule, but we will soon. (Most likely tomorrow.) If you are in Sag Harbor, just cast out at Long Beach or off of Barcelona Point. Basically any where off a beach or off a boat in Sag Harbor is fine. If you are not in Sag Harbor, but somewhere in the North, East coast, give it a try! Good luck, and I HOPE YOU CATCH SOME FISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Rusty Hook is going fishing tomorrow!!!! We are going for blow fish and porgy’s, those guys are every where!!! I just caught one about 5 days ago. Iv been trying to tell my dad to grill that thing for more than a week now!!!! So I put it in the freezer ever since, and now it’s so frozen that it’s eye’s turned wight frozen. Well ,that’s all for today guys. AND HOPE YOU CATCH SOME FISH!!!!
This is the blow fish I caught about 5 days ago, fully frozen.
Marco and I were going to the pier and then we found some people fishing, we went to watch but when we got to the pier, we saw a huge splash. At first I thought it was one of the lures splashing in the water, but then I saw a fin, and I think it was a porgy witch is impossible, because they are bottom fish. So I think it was a snapper. Then on the way back, we saw about 100 fat minnows swimming everywhere. It was a crazy day!
Yesterday I went to this beach at Shelter Island and saw about 5 baby sand sharks around the shore swimming around my legs. I tried to catch them with my net but they were too fast. I was in shock at seeing 5 baby sand sharks swimming so close to me.
