October 27, 2016 — Montauk Fishing Report
Fished today after a four day blow. It was not a day for the faint of heart, 39 degrees overcast and rainy. We broke the inlet 8AM moved east down Gin Beach no more than 300 yards Blinked twice to be sure the lite Nor’East wasn’t spitting on me, wiped my glasses to be sure I wasn’t seeing things…Striped Bass breaking the surface with tens of thousands of sea birds screaming from twenty feet off our bow to as far as you could see. Veteran angler JP stepped to the bow after filling his eyes with spectacle. Hand made flies and hand made fly rod in hand he commenced doing business with these finned creatures. It was an epic day of almost constant one on one with Mr. Striper and JP. Energy, focus and enthusaim are contagious and will always prove to be the key to your success. This angler exuded these qualities. Check out photos of the month for a look at the pay-off for some hard core anglers.

“An Anglers dream”
Some days you wake up and realize today is going to be good day. I don’t know why that is, maybe the planets are in alignment, even your dog seems happy. February 24th was such a day. Bob and I were on the last day of a six day fishing adventure in the Acklins. We were plagued with two and a half days of un-fishable weather due to a cold front that buried the North East in snow and sub-zero temperatures. The Acklins Islands in the Bahamas 250 miles South of Nassau was also feeling the effects. On our last day we both felt energized and prepared for anything as out trip was quickly coming to an end. It wasn’t long before we were both into Bonefish. Huge Cuda’s were also prowling the Flats. After Bob donated some tackle to these toothy torpedoes and managed to land a few beauties. It was nearly 2PM, Bob and I were experincing that sinking feeling as the end of our trip closing in. Our guide Garon decided to try one more spot. That’s were this story begins…
