Montauk Fishing Report – September 15th 2011

Things are really heating up on the back side of the moon and every day has seen some type of action in Montauk.  The light and the north side continue to be consistent with keeper bass with a few rumored over 30lbs.

Last night, there was fish into 20’s for casters throwing darters at the usual north side spots and the daytime is starting to show some decent blitz action.  Blitzes have been lasting for an hour with bass and blues pushing the bait up against the beach.

Weekend Outlook – Low Pressure, Northerly Winds, Big Moon = Fish?

Tonight should be interesting with a front coming through and the off shore swell picking up.  The Surfline is calling for 4-6ft swells and 35kt gusts so working the rocks might be a little difficult for the old timers (aka Eelman, Gardner).

TONIGHT From NOAA
N WINDS 20 TO 25 KT WITH GUSTS UP TO 35 KT. SEAS 4 TO
6 FT. A CHANCE OF LIGHT RAIN EARLY THIS EVENING…THEN OCCASIONAL
SPRINKLES LATE THIS EVENING.

For those brave enough to go up front could be rewarded with a shot of decent fish.  The boats have been seeing a lot of cow bass coming up.  Westlake weighed in over 10 fish this past week over 40lbs.  Let’s hope they get hungry and come chase the bait into the shore.
