Surf Casting in the Hamptons

When the warmth of the summer comes to an end, it becomes more of a challenge to catch fish. You can’t just cast off of the bay and expect to catch fish anymore. You would be lucky if you hooked a crab. Surf casting in the Atlantic has been pretty successful this season. Their have been reports of people hooking up blue fish over thirty inches long.  Blue fish are pretty hard to catch. In the Spring, they are closer in land where the water is warmer, but when summer rolls around, the blues swim farther out where the water is cooler. Remember: Blue fish swim in schools, so when one is hooked, you will most likely hook more. We did not have a chance to go out this Fall, but we will keep you posted on how the surf casting is going.

Snappers are snappin!’

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
