Default rendezvous

There was a rendezvous made and fulfilled yesterday.

Roland, my friend from California gave me a heads up that he would be
coming east to Montauk, New York for five days.

Success on all counts.

My Friend Bryan and I drove out for the day to see what was cooking.

On our arrival on the beach at about 7am the conditions seemed to be
decent with good cloud cover and a bit of onshore wind. We fished around
some of the populated areas but there was no reward.

Roland came up with a brilliant idea to leave the crowds to hit some quiet
stretches of beach to see if the a change of scenery may swing our luck.
We were in...the idea of finding some empty stretches to fully explore is
always appealing.

a relic...

We hiked out on foot a bit and cast to some fishy water for a
few hours but the fish were not around. We all decided to chill for a bit in
the area I passed out on the bluff for about an hour. When I got up
the whole scene changed. The birds and bait were active.

It didn't take long to hook up. Blitz!

We ran like school kids to pick up our first fish of the day. The bass schools
were comprised of fish that were around legal...the biggest probably around 34".

Bryan with his first Montauk bass....

a 30" Bryan decided to keep

I must have caught about six bass that were around legal.
I put them all back in hopes of trading them in for a big girl later.

I still have my ticket.

The blitz moved up and down the beach and we watched the crowd chase
after them a bit. It was getting later in the day so we left the fish to meet
up with the rest of the crew. We headed back to parking lot for a quick
sandwich and boogied down to the crowd just in time for some dusk activity...

Almost every cast was a bass or a blue. Most of the Bass were undersized.

The day was surprisingly bluefish free....but their hungry chompers could
not be completely silenced. I managed a hefty blue that put a nice
exclamation point on the end of the day.


Thanks Roland for suggesting the outing! It couldn't have been better.

Nice post and pics. I've been out there many times when the bass were small. I've been out there many times when the bass were lunkers.
As long as one has a BLAST, IMO, that's what it's all about!
