>> Sue Foster, Oyster Bay Tackle, let us know that the water temp: 57.7 degrees. "Not the world's greatest weather this past weekend, but a few fish were caught. During the week, we heard of some nice stripers caught, some blues, red hake, and sharks from the surf. Inlets saw some striper action, and of course, tautog. Tautogs were biting at all the usual haunts. Sea bass fishing offshore has been outstanding if you can get out there. Stripers and some big blues have been caught trolling just offshore. If only the wind would quit blowing!"
