Fished with Darryl, Bill, Dave, and Scott in Montauk. Striper blitzes, big sea bass, and albies made for a great trip. Non stop action at times. Pro Tip: When fish are following a fast retrieve but not eating, try stopping suddenly. They can't put on the brakes so they usually commit.
Fished with Joe at the end of August in Sea Isle. I guess I'm behind in my posts. We had a great day with lots of mahi on the fly and a few albies on the troll. It was a great day. Can't wait for next summer! Pro Tip: Letting a fly sink deep can trigger reluctant mahi to bite.
Fished with Ken, Kathie, Todd, and Sheila in Montauk. We had tons of albies on the fly as well as on spinning rods. Fishing was excellent. So were the brie, watercrest, and apricot compote croissant sandwiches. There is a first for everything !
