Old Inlet in Great South Bay

Postby Hawkboat » Thu Jan 24, 2013 9:12 pm

I recieved something from a friend of mine who I fished with for many years, great guy, doesn't fish as much anymore but still has a great interest in the Sorth Shore of Long Island.

There was a breach at what is called the Old Inlet on Fire Island...long story short since Sandy this breach has been a HUGE welcome to people who fish or familair with the Great Souht Bay and this being my old stomping grounds I very familiar with the water flow problen in that area.

This breach has really now opened up and there are many people who love this as it really freshens up the bay...hopefully no more coffee colored water, more bait, more fish, reduces traveling time for fisherman in that area and hopefully the CLAMS come back.

You call tell I am little passionate about this area. ;)

Anyway here is what my buddy asked:

Bill, could you drop a Line to the DEC to help keep the breach open to save and help keep the Great South Bay clean. Thanks

So if anyone out there is from the area or have friends in the area please pass this on.

Thanks for looking.

There was a dock with about 20 slips for peole to tie up and then wlk across the dunes to the Ocean side beach.

My buddy had it up on Face Book...from the begining to what it is now......that bay really need that. I tghink it was almost 35 miles between Fire Island and Moriches Inlets so the GSB really never had a good flow. Geez I remember that bay being almost a coffee color sometimes.

Knowing that area so well that breach, if it stay open will light up that bay, there sre some many small holes within a few miles either way of that area I can see the local pulling good size fluke in the bay, buckatils those shallows would bring a lot of suprises, bass and blues up the ying yang and if the weakies show that place will be on fire all season. The when the crabs show...look out. :shock:

We always had bunker in the bay, lots of netters early in the season for bunker.

Sorry for the damage that Sandy did cause but sometimes even out of something bad there is always a glimmer of sunshine.

Hey guys, I keep my boat on Carman's river right across from the breach. This breach area was also the same marina and beach I have been going to by boat all of my life. The first video was right after the storm, some of the pics are from Bellport Dock. The waves were massive. The second video was right around Thanksgiving, the last two around Christmas, this thing changes at every tide. I hope they keep it open, it is already flushing the bay. I am counting the days for the Spring run, that should bring a lot of nice bait in.
