Fished with Doug and Patty today in Montauk. We had around 18 albies, six stripers, a few blues, and a bunch of small bonita. Doug and I both had grand slams of albies, blues, bass, and bonitas. Fishing was great despite the wind and rain. Pro Tip: In the days of sailing warships doing battle, they would maneuver to attain the "weather gauge." The weather gauge meant you were up wind and could easily maneuver down on your opponent. Having the weather gauge on fish is always preferred. Casting, maneuvering, and presenting your lures is always easier when you have the weather gauge. Think I'm kidding. Look it up.
