Montauk SurfMasters is the Northeast’s Elite Surfcasting Tournament

From the wind-swept beaches of early spring, to the calm moonlit nights of summer, to the raging white foam-frothed North Side rocks in the fall… Montauk is fishing Mecca!

Surf fisherman from far and wide arrive every fall to ply their talents and nerve against Mother Nature in an attempt to land a wall-hanging striped bass. Among the surf, winds and sand of Montauk, stands the northeast’ most elite surfcasting tournament. The Montauk SurfMasters!

Whether it is fishing the whipping wind, rain, and crashing surf of a nor’easter or swimming out into the Atlantic on a black moonless night, in search of the mystery rock, the fishermen and women of the Montauk SurfMasters tournament are relentless. When you take first place in our tournament and are fitted with the winners jacket you have earned the right to call yourself the best of the best.
