Fishing in Montauk
Montauk is known as a world-class sport fisherman’s paradise. Inshore you can go for the grab bag of flounder, fluke, striped bass, bluefish, sea bass and porgies. Head offshore and you are in deep water where sharks, tuna, codfish, ling, marlin, dolphin and black fish are caught.
After the summer months have passed the fishing frenzy begins. In September, October and into November is the striped bass and blue fish southern migration past Montauk Point from their northern summer feeding grounds as far away as the Grand Banks off Newfoundland and the Labrador Sea to winter out in the Carolinas. Fishermen from Maine and all over the world come to Montauk to witness the best fishing the sports fishing world has to offer.
