What is Provided:
I provide all fishing gear and flies needed for your trip and can provide rain gear. I carry plenty of water.
Depending on the time of year we use 8 wt., 9 wt. or 10 wt. rods. Intermediate lines are the most productive but on the flats, floating lines work well.
What to Bring:
Please bring a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, jacket, and something to eat.
Our season starts around mid-May and, weather permitting, can go into December. The fall migration begins in September.
Our regularly-targeted species are striped bass and bluefish in the spring and summer. Our fall run also offers false albacore, and on occasion, blue fin tuna. In addition to these targeted fish, there can be observed ocean sunfish, whales, and basking sharks.
Montauk and the Hamptons offer as much on land as on the water. World-class beaches, dining, shopping and entertainment are just a of the few things available while on shore.
Our weather can range from cool in the spring, to almost tropical in summer and back to cool in the fall.
I can offer options on places to stay and I always advise clients to inquire about cancellation policies while booking in case of bad weather.
I belong to our local gun club and if we do get weathered out there is the possibility of skeet shooting.
