Headed over to Montauk this morning as I heard that it was on fire on Tues. Took my longtime fishin' buddy Al with me and we arrived on station at around 7:00 am. Started hitting fish around 8:00 am. and it was pretty much non-stop for the rest of the day. We ended up with 37 Albies hooked and 31 of them landed. Al had a bad equipment day as he broke his flyrod and then shortly after that broke one of mine that I gave him to use. Just got that damn rod back from Orvis too:( . Headed back tomorrow with a couple of friends from NJ and hopefully the wind will be gentle and manageable. Crowds were very tolerable today with the fish spread out over a wide area and the cluster effect was down to a minimum. Alot of fish caught today seemed like someone was always hooked up whenever you looked around.
