Montauk Fishing Report – September
It’s September in Montauk, and that means the shark fishing is heating up. In the past couple of weeks we have already had some very decent shark fishing. This is only going to get better as the annual Mako and Thresher migrations come through. In the last month, we took over 30 sharks on the Susie E, with most of them weighing in at the 150-250 pound range. This is a very good sign, and we’ll be hunting monster sharks well into the fall.
It has been a similar story for the stripers. We had a blazing hot spring and early summer Striped Bass season on the Susie E: big catches with lots of fish in the 30-40+ pound range. We experienced the usual late summer slowdown in August, but now that September is here the bite is picking up again. We’re looking ahead to some excellent bass fishing as the weather turns cooler and the fall migration comes through.
Sea Bass and Porgies have been holding up well, too. And the Fluke fishing has been particularly solid for this time of year. We must have taken a few hundred Fluke in the last few weeks, many of them up to 10 pounds.
Fall is a perfect time for fishing in Montauk. Get in touch and we’ll get you out on the water and into some fish.
