Jig &Eel Combo

Capt. Ant reports a fantastic night locally considering the conditions.  We had a stiff northwest wind against a screaming flood tide, add to it the swell of Cristobal and drifting squarely was a challenge to say the least.  Even with that they finally bit after a month hibernation. The sizes were mixed as we had a couple throwbacks up to a 42lb rock slob.  Average was about 20bs.  Bluefish were a bit of a nuisance at the start but once the tide got roaring it was 99% Moo Cow Linesiders and 3-4 a drift up until we left.  John Bye from Wantaugh took the pool with the 42lber and Mike Scarzelli took 2nd with a 36lber.

Half Day Fluke AM
Captain Ant reports an excellent morning trip with quality fluke and jumbo sea bass and biscuits in the mix as well. Young Samie Gotimer took the pool with a 5 pounder. Rodney Fearsome Franklin had 2 fluke, 2 sea bass and a damn good time!

Half Day Fluke PM
Captain Ant reports a slower PM trip due to a screaming tide and very muddy water. Our first two drifts started strong but the tide took over and shut down the bite. That didn’t stop young Ava Herrera from Sayville from taking the pool with a 4 pounder.

Montauk Local Porgies and Sea Bass
Captain Dave reports a bit of a slow day of fishing today due to the big ground swell we had this morning. We managed a nice catch of some really nice quality fish. There weren’t many, but the ones we had were good good quality. We had porgies, sea bass and some blues in the mix. Today’s pool winner was Jack Ng of Queens with a HUGE HUGE 4.75lb porgy!!
