Striper Mike took me out several years ago and we fished while the Red Bone Tournament was going on. The guides were so anxious to get their sports fish that they cut us off. The only guide that did it right was Sarah Gardiner. Iíll never forget that experience. We had several chances at the albies. I hooked on and he broke me off. FishHawk

Now I remember why I never bum a ride out there. I like flat water, even if it has less fishies. That rockin an rollin would have me chumming in no time.

Honestly I was quite aprehensive about making the run out to that big water rip but I'm glad we did. I've got Sean to thank for that, wouldn't have made the trip without a buddy boat. I used some gas getting there, had to go WOT to keep up with jonesy's cruising speed. FAC on the way back and the albies started poping up everywhere though skittish, we took a few casts at them but had to get back home. Sean and GregD are in the boat on the left. I'll post some more pics as I get time to crunch 'em.

No complaints here...

Jim,

Greg forwarded me some pictures that I will try and get up this weekend as well. There are certainly a ton of boats out there but having been a few times now it holds a special place on my list of angling destinations. It is big water, especially on the incoming tide, and the fish can be skittish but I have never encountered the sheer numbers of albies that I have seen out there at times. Its still fishing and there are no guarantees but the beauty of the point and surrounding cliffs along with the chance of some solid blitzes make it worth the effort in my book. To Slingers point, if you don't want to get bounced around (and probably a bit wet) don't go. In my book as long as its safe, lets roll. Season is too short to be picky.

Sean

Nice shots

Truly tantalizing photos boys.

I have never been to Montauk but I have fished the Wasque rips - which I consider to be big water (maybe I am wrong). The 1st photo in the thread reminds me of my days on Wasque a few years ago.

I love tossing flies into the rips and working the fly throughout the drift. Then again I have never had to captain the boat and worry about the drifts.

Nice job,

Mike

Here's a couple more pics.
Mike I'd call Wasque big water, I've never fished it from the boat but back when the point hadn't been taken out by storms I hit it from shore many times. Just amazing watching the blues swim through the waves, almost like looking into an aquarium. Montauk reminded me of the South tip of Monomy (Polack rip?)

I've got some buddies of mine out there at the moment. In fact there are 4 of them... Just wondered if anyone has seen them and if so, how are they doing?

Steveo, It's been blowing pretty good around here, haven't been able to get back out there again. If your buds are fishing the shore I'd be interested to know how they are making out, quite well on the bass and blues I'll bet.

May be a window on Sunday to get back out there. Would love to make a few casts under the light with gannets dive bombinb around the boat. Saw a few headed in that direction this past Sunday.
