Lol.....fished Montauk one time!!

Two buddies and I headed up to Montauk to fish the surf. It was fairly crowded, even during the week, but I found just enough room to cast a fly rod.

Soon after we got there a blitz happened right in front of us and a mad dash of "anglers" from both sides descended upon us. I backed off to find a safe haven well back on the beach.

As I watched the frenzy of bait, fish, and "anglers" in front of me, I noticed the boats hanging near the beach had spotted the blitz and headed in closer to shore. Closer than I've ever seen boats come to shore anywhere else...too close!

The "anglers" from the surf and from the boats started yelling at each other; saying things like "Wot da Effff"...."back da efff off ya effiin azzhole." Well I'm sure they couldn't hear from the boats, but there was a lot of waving and hand signals going on.

The surf guys decided to get out the heavy artillery and pinned on some magnum spoons, plugs and jigs on their swivels and began firing out casts, hitting the boats. Zing.....zang.....kapow!!!

The volleys continued for a while. After sustaining a few hits, one of the guys out there decided to break rank from the other boats and began doing donuts over the blitz.

That was it for me fishing that day. I never returned. True story.

Good luck, Stagger. Post a report and pics

Lol @ afish .. that sounds so NY, especially all 5 boros and the 2 counties of Lawng Island. Not expecting the peace and tranquility of what I'm used to tho I love the sound of the ocean. Grew up on LI and spent a lot of time out east but was never a fisherman. Looking forward to my first fishing weekend.

don't leave the flies at home if you have some salts. probably gonna be on rainbait so surf candies and epoxies are going to be the way. about 14 inches above a diamond jig.
