Captains Table Montauk Fluke

Area: Montauk

Headed out to Montauk to try and cash in on the waning 2021 Fluke season with long term customer Chef Nader and his friend Kim. Had reports that the fish are starting to stack up just south of the point which is usually a sure sign they are getting ready to move on.

Spent 3 hours of the flood in a very swift flood tide that required the use of my drift sock to slow us down to around a 2-2.2kt. drift. Had a steady pick of Fluke during this period and managed to box 5 keepers to 5# among many other short fish.

The bite tapered off as the tide slowed so we headed south to Cartwright to try and fill out the catch. Here we were rewarded with 4 more keepers with the top 2 fish going 6 and 7# respectively and a dozen healthy Sea Bass to 3#. So, the Chef goes home with some excellent table fare for him to work his “culinary magic”!

Tog dates are filling up fast so if you need a weekend date it would be wise to book soon. If the Blackfishing on the North Fork this year is anything like last season I promise you won’t’ be disappointed.
