Fished with Doug and Patty this weekend in Montauk. The albies and bonito chewer well today. We literally left them biting. It was a great season in Montauk. The bass are on the move and will slowly make their way here. Pro Tip: Sea Isle striper season should be in full swing by late November.
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.
Fished with Mike and Chris last weekend in Montauk. The albie bite continues to be very good. We had lots of fish on the spinning rod as well as the fly rod. Pro Tip: Always approach breaking fish uptide and upwind. Make sure you are drifting towards them. Being upwind also aids in long casts.
Fished with Darryl and Dave in Montauk. It was great. We averaged over forty albies per day with some bass, blues, and sea bass mixed in. Fishing has been very very good. Pro Tip: Watch your plotter. Many times your drift is powered more by the current than the wind. Albies frequently stay in the same area but we drift away from them. Using your plotter you can return to where the fish are hanging out.
