Montauk Point Long Island
[Surfcasting Capitol of the World]
Montauk Point, Long Island
('The End') is one of the country's
premier surfcasting destinations
for serious Striped Bass anglers.
Under the Montauk Lighthouse,
(which is the most Eastern tip of
Long Island,) the land juts out
into the Atlantic Ocean, offering
miles of rocky coastline (which
happens to be prime striper
territory!)
Montauk is especially productive for striper fishing from shore during the          
Fall, when these awesome sportfish migrate South along the Eastern U.S.         
coast-line as they head for the Outer Banks to winter over just off                    
North Carolina.
It is quite common to see very large schools of Striped Bass                              
churning up the water just yards off shore during these Fall months,                
chasing and feeding on baitfish, in order to 'fuel up' for their long                     
journey. Surfcasters flock to the water's edge throwing                                     
bucktails, metal spoons,  teasers, pencil poppers, darters, needlefish                 
lures or try their luck fly-fishing with saltwater flies in order to land                  
trophy bass.      
Major Striper
Blitz !!!
Ziffy was in Montauk on Columbus Day weekend (Oct. 10 &11, 2011) and witnessed         
first-hand blitz after blitz of stripers feeding on rain-bait just off shore for two solid days!
At one point, he caught a double-header, a 12 lber and a 15 lber on the same line at          
the same time! One fish hit a 1-1/2 oz. bucktail and the other hit a teaser that was tied     
on 2 feet above the bucktail. The picture below shows Ziffy landing them after an              
awesome fight.
Feeding Stripers!
Fish On !
Striper Paradise!
A place in which existence is positive,
harmonious and timeless.
Double-header!
