The Fall Migration is underway on Eastern Long Island. Large schools of Sand Eels and Rain Baits are spread across Block Island Sound for literally miles.
Hungry Striped Bass, Bluefish, False Albacore and other little tuna are busting on the schooling baitfish.
An early morning launch through the surf is a thrilling start to any fishing adventure.
The sand Eel bite can be fickle and matching the hatch has been particularly important during the 2013 fall migration. Hopkins, Deadly Dicks and Cast Masters have been working well for light tackle anglers. Fly guys are using Sand Eel imitation patterns.
Rick Drew from Main Beach Surf and Sport guides anglers interested in fishing the fall migration and works with customers to build their paddling skills and confidence so they can plan their own fall migration fishing adventures.
Main Beach represents the best fishing kayaks from Native Watercraft, Wilderness Systems and Ocean Kayak.
Ricks picks for 2014 are the Slayer from Native Watercraft, the Ride from Wilderness Systems for single fishing kayaks and the Malibu II XL from Ocean Kayak for tandem fishing in surf zone waters, where a partner is required. Look for the Slayer propel in 2014 to raise the bar for peddle driven fishing kayaks.
