Fished with Doug last Saturday in Montauk. Fishing was epic with blitzing stripers. Our final release totals were way over 60-70 fish. We also had a few big blues and sea bass. Pro Tip: different situations call for different types of retrieves. Don't be afraid to experiment and then apply a successful retrieve in a similar situation in the future.
