Weakfish charters?

Weakfish are abundant in Peconic Bay (Eastern LI) throughout the summer; you just need to know where to look.  

 

Probably no chance this year with everything going on and charters basically shut down.

CWitek,that is good to hear./grew up on the GSB.in the 60's there weren't many weakfish in the bay,you had to go to the

peconics to get them.the early 70's the GSB came alive with small weakies 1 to 4 lbers.the mouths of creeks that emptied in the bay were alive with them.later in the 70's there was a run of big weakies 8 to 15lber and even bigger on the grass flats off Davis park/barret beach.the pink Salty dog or a hopkins were the lures of choice..at that time iwas digging clams for a living,the weakies love to hang around the guys that were tonging in the shell beds just north ofthe grass flats

 

It seemed that we had two modest year classes last year, one averaging around 4 pounds and one hovering right around the 16-inch minimum.  If they survived the winter with another year of growth, and have a successful spawn, maybe we'll see some really solid improvement.
