Drove to long island for a few days in June to fish for fluke and whatever else… I ended up giving montauk a shot for stripers with fishaholic on this day and was pretty underwhelmed by a slow pick of small fish. This was my first time ever fishing the legendary mecca that is montauk, I think 10 years ago on a day like this we would have been catching 30”-38” fish in these exact spots and exact lures. From what I have gathered, montauk is a tough place to catch big bass any more (from shore at least). Is Montauk still the mecca? or is it past its prime. The Balloons are thick on the shores out there. Boats off NJ/NY report seeing up to 100 in a day, we gotta do better than that. I shoulda picked up those balloons, no excuses.
Reel is a Saragosa 6k (I do like this reel a lot)
Lures I used-
Yozuri Mag Darter
Camera is a Gopro hero 5 black, and even though it sucks and constantly gives me problems, you can purchase it here for cheaper than what I paid for it. maybe youll have better luck with it than me.
