Quick question. Is it porgy season becasue I'm looking to do some porgy fishing on the SS in fire island inlet? Is it worth givin it a shot I havent tried all season so I do not know if they are out yet or not?

Yes. Porgy season opened June 12. I don't know about the south shore but porgy fishing on the North Shore is hot right now. Check out this link to NYS DEC for the current regs. Good luck.

God luck getting them in FI inlet.
I never found a spot there that was really productive for them.
I have a few places where I can produce a few, but not in any big numbers, and not in the inlet area.

Agreed, not really worth trying for them in such an crappy area. I mean I grew up in the area and don't remember ever trying or seeing anyone try to catch them. NorthShore and the ends of long island are the way to go.

They have been biting like crazy on clams in the Wantagh area.

We are having a fantastic year so far fishing wise and other wise really!
