The Rusty Hook Fishing Club went on a fishing trip. We had to wake up at 5:45 in the morning. The drive from our house in Sag Harbor to the the boat located in Hampton bays took about half an hour. We boarded the Shinnecock Star (our boat) at 7:00. The Shinnecock Star disembarked at 7:35. We were all very excited for the trip. On the the trip, my Dad caught 3 Fluke and a Robin Fish, Mom caught a Robin Fish, And my brother caught 3 Fluke and 2 Robin Fish. I caught a Fluke and 3 Robin Fish. A kid on the boat caught the fish of the day, a 7 pound Fluke. An old man named George almost beat the kid with his Fluke. Georg’s fluke was only a pound off.
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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀
Blow fish have not been running much at all here in good old Sag Harbor, Long Island. Max Greenberg of the Rusty hook caught one in Barcelona Point after about two hours. Something isn’t right.
Today I went snorkeling in Long Beach and found out many things. The blow fish I saw were still babies. At this time of year I would expect big or even full grown blow fish. I also found this out with robin fish.
MY THEORY is that the messed up weather this summer has affected the time of year the fish come out. If my theory is correct, blow fish will be really biting in a week and will bite for about another month. I will continue my research and try to find out further information, but for now, this is what I know. So good luck and I hope you can catch some fish!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
