Montauk Fishing Report – Striped Bass, Albies, and Bluefish Madness – Sept 31 and Oct 1

We headed up to Montauk to chase striped bass, albies and bluefish on Tuesday and Wednesday. The bite was great on Tuesday with lots of bass, some blues, but not as many albies. Yesterday was wide open and probably the best day fishing for all three species I have ever experienced in the Northeast. The fish never stopped breaking or biting. If you wanted albies you fished those pods, if you wanted bass you fished pods with bass. It was so good we stopped fishing and just put down our rods and watched. It was literally an amazing spectacle of nature to witness. Of course after about 15 minutes we could pick up a rod and catch another, then watch again for a while. I was nothing less then epic.
Tackle:
9 and 10 wt Sage Xp’s on sinking lines (Rio Striper 250 for me and Tom used a Express Sinking line) Leader was about 7 feet of 20lb Ande fluorocarbon and flies were my Blanco patterns in chartruese and baitfish on #2 hooks)

Here are a few pictures, we fished with Capt. John McMurray yesterday and he shot a bunch of pics, but is still up there and once he gets back and sends some more shots I will post them up. I think the pictures tell the story best (you can click on the pictures to get full resolution versions):
