Patty and I fished in Montauk for my final weekend up there. There was a bit of a swell on from the hurricane that hit Bermuda but it was very fishable and the fishing was good. The albie bite was hot and we released about sixteen albies. Ten on the fly and six on spinning rods. We also had a few bluefish. No stripers. The albie bite was excellent this year.
