Well, it's about that time of the year! The World Fishing & Outdoor Expo in Suffern, NY is coming to town from March 5-8th.

The show is loaded with Freshwater, Saltwater, Hunting and Outdoor related vendors. All the major tackle manufactures are represented, including Shimana, Daiwa, Penn and much, much more. If you have never been there, seriously, you need to go, it's awesome. From the NY/LI bridges, the show is about 45 minutes North on the NY State Thruway.

Fall is here, and so are the Albies!

If you like screaming drags and chasing a fish around the boat, then False Albacore (aka "little tunny") fishing is for you. The time is now. All the inlets have Albies. We did a trip to Montauk and the action was non-stop. These little speedsters will really put your gear to the test. Had a great trip with Capt. Adrian of Time Flies Sportfishing . Check out our action packed video of the trip here!

Doug and his son DJ land a Giant

This past week was the start for the BIG Bass out of Debs and Jones Inlet. I have personally seen many 30-40 pounders coming into the docks. The bite is HOT right now. Trolling or Bunker Dunkin' is the key to success...

Official Fluke Regulations for 2014

The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation has issued the following press release:

New York Adopts Updated Fluke Rules That Will Expand Opportunities for New York Saltwater Anglers Emergency Regulations Implement New Regional Approach to Fluke Management...

Striped Bass are here

April 15 was the opening day of Striped Bass in NY but with the cold temps and even colder water, April 15 I found myself watching old Youtube videos of Striped Bass fishing instead of actually fishing for them.

Well, the reports are starting to come in and the water is warming up so get out and bend a rod on one of NY's most sought after game-fish... If you get those big prego females, take a weight, snap and pic and let her live if you can.

Looking forward to a great season and thank you to everyone who post and shares our page...
