We fish for Fluke throughout the Summer months starting when the season opens in May. Our Full Day Fluke trips 7am - 4pm are your best bet to catch your Doormat Fluke & fill your cooler with these flatties. We Fluke open boat every day the weather allows us to when the season is open. We use Spearing & Squid strips for Fluke. A plain hook works fine, some anglers like to bring their own teasers, Spros, or Gulp.
The clean ocean waters around Montauk are full of life. Although we target Fluke during the summer season you will also see other species caught on your Fluke rig, such as SeaBass, Porgy, Triggers, & Striped Bass. You can keep them as well, as long as they are caught during their open season.

Black Sea Bass
We fish for Black SeaBass starting in the summer months through their season ending in December. Usually a high - low rig is used and teasers or grubs can be added. Jig rigs also work well. During the summer months we catch SeaBass on Fluke rigs with spearing & squid while Fluke fishing. When we target them in the Fall months and follow them into the deeper water we use clams for bait. When fishing for SeaBass in the Fall you can usually expect a nice combo trip, filling your cooler with a variety of fish.

Many anglers come to Montauk to fish for Striped Bass around Montauk Point. During the day Diamond Jigs are usually used, normally a 6 or 8 ounce will do the trick. You can bring your own jig or we sell them onboard. When we are Night Striped Bass Fishing eels or clams are used. We fish for Stripers in the fall months or you can charter us to target them during the summer for the evening / night bite to catch your Cow.

During the Fall and Winter months we fish for Cod. In the Fall months Cod is mixed in our Full Day Fall Bottom Fishing Trips. In the Winter Cod trips are normally 5am - 4pm and are Limited. We fish in places like South West of Block Island, Coxes Ledge, and Wrecks. Clams are used for bait, sometimes anglers like to put teasers or grubs on the hooks too. Jigs can also be productive at the right time. Winter Cod trips are Limited and require a Reservation.

Black Fish (Tautog)
Usually starting early-late Fall we fish for Black Fish (Tautog.) We use crabs for bait, most commonly Green crab, but White crab & Hermit crabs are also used. Since BlackFish are a Fall fishery, you can usually expect a nice combo trip, filling your cooler with a variety of fish.

Porgy Fishing is fun for everyone & the easiest fishery for the beginner angler. Porgy have commonly been called little porkchops, but more often are being referred to as dinner plate size Porgys - they are getting bigger every year! Clams are used for bait usually on a high - low rig, sometimes with a red or yellow bead. We target Porgy in the Fall, but if you're looking for a fun Summer evening private charter for the whole family, Porgy is your best bet. When fishing for Porgy in the Fall you can usually expect a nice combo trip, filling your cooler with a variety of fish.
