Grand Bahama Mama Charters Inshore and Offshore fishing out of Hampton Bays, NY

Fishing Reports

July 2014 Fishing Report

It’s TUNA TIME!!  The local canyons came to life and the inshore bite is incredible.   The Tails (Block Canyon) is the place to good with all different species of Tuna, Mahi, Blue and White Marlin being captured on a regular basis.  Right now the Combria (about 25 miles offshore) bite has both Bluefin and Yellowfin mixed in, with good numbers of both coming over the rails.  Bluefins are ranging from 50 to 90 pounds and the Yellowfins are around 40 pounds.  Sharks are still biting only a couple of miles of the beach and you have a honest shot at catching and releasing multiple fish daily.  Since the weather is staying cool we feel that the sharks will hang around for quite a bit longer.

On the inshore front the Striped Bass seemed to have moved on for the summer and the bluefish have been moving in and out of the inlet.  Fluke fishing remains strong in the bay and the Black Sea Bass fishing is red hot locally and there are a couple of fluke being caught in the ocean.  We also have heard that the Striped Bass fishing in Montauk is good again after the new moon, while the Fluke and Black Sea Bass fishing is red hot on both sides of the point.  Oh yeah, remember the shark fishing is only 4 miles from Shinnecock Inlet!!!!  It’s time to GO!!

Call Capt. Ryan to find out what is happening that day and book your trip aboard the Grand Bahama Mama sailing everyday out of Oaklands Restaurant and Marina, 373 Dune Road in Hampton Bays.

Tight lines!!!

June 2014 Fishing Report

SHARKS, SHARKS SHARKS!!!!!  We saw again a great run of monster sharks in the area and some are still around.  Congrats to Brian Burke running the TUNA CAN and his 525 Thresher during the 18th Annual Wally Oaklands Memorial Shark Tournament June 24th.  It is the time of the year that we have some resident fish moving in close to the beach which means short runs to the fishing grounds and plenty of action.  If you ever had a dream to catch that fish of a life time, it is time to go.

FLUKE FISHING IN THE BAY IS RED HOT!!! That statement coming from some of the local sharpies.  Time to get out the light spinning rods, 1/2 ounce SPRO’s, and find those big doormats hanging out in the skinny waters.  Choice bait has been local spearing or 4″ swimming mullet Gulp baits.  There some good rumors starting about a fluke bite starting in the ocean.  We have had a couple descent trips out beyond the Jetty’s, but nothing consistent yet.  Let’s see what happens after Hurricane Arthur and do not forget that black sea bass opens July 15th!!!
