For several years now noreast.com has had only party boat and charter reports posted. (Veracity is not important, just typing in caps.) (A decade ago it was mostly private boaters.)

I fish JI to Matzahpizza, usually backbay in a yak but also out to the inlet in our boat. I use Berkley Gulp so checking with my local tackle shop and buying nothing is not me.

One shop on the Matzahpizza Seaford border usually posts some info once a week. The Fishing Line is the same and not usually worth perusing. any other websites out there ?

I usually browse noreast once in a while, most fishermen are usually tight lipped to where they are catching them. Just have from put your time in.

Totally agree with you about "spot burning." its just that 10 and 15 years ago there was a lot of info on noreast from private boaters. Now its all just lies from party boats. I only go to the discussion boards on noreast now where sharing techniques, selling stuff, etc is still pretty good. Then again, 10 and 15 years ago the fishing was MUCH better in my area, especially from the yak. The Long Island Fisherman weekly of course just reports where the fish were. I would just like to hear stuff like, " a new influx of fluke came in through the inlet Tuesday," or "cocktails are robbing fluke rigs up and down the state channel" etc. like the old days... ah well

Last week a guy pulled a 40lb bass from the surf in Amagansett. There was a picture of him in the Southampton Press holding the fish .Nice catch ...I have caught a few bass from the surf in recent years but nothing that big.

there's a guy that's been pulling in 4 and 5 foot sandbar sharks off Tobay Ocean Beach. (could make some think about surfing, lol)

There was a time, back in the '60s, '70 and early '80s, when we would fish the beaches or jetties, at Gin, Shagawong, Montauk, False Point, etc and pull 40~50 pound Striped Bass and large sand sharks, as a routine item.

I used to run fish back to the truck for my father back in the day. Now there are days I want to snap my fishing pole on my knee and head to a strip club. The north shore is sparse and getting tougher every year. Now if you catch a 32 to 36 inch stripped bass off the beach once a year that's a lot. It's very different now a lot of shorts and nothing. But I keep coming back.
