Memorial Day weekend seemed pretty busy in Montauk, until I went down to the docks. At Star Island on Saturday only
two charter boats got out and on Monday, none of them sailed. I didnít get there on Sunday, but I doubt that many got
out that day either. Party boats did a little better, at least going by the number of cars in their parking lots, but during the
week most of them are sailing pretty light.
Fluke fishing could hardly be any better. Who cares if the regs hold you to a 21Ē size limit when there are so many five
and six pounders around? last weekend all the boats were fishing south of the Radar Stand, but now they are spread out a
little more, with some as far west as the IGA
Bass fishing is boringly good. I could probably write this part of the report for weeks on end. There are plenty of keepers
around with many in the fifteen to twenty pound range, and an occasional thirty pound fish being brought back. Most
are being caught on the good old chartreuse parachute. The bluefish seem to have thinned out.
