Montauk, Long Island, New York, USA

"Montauk is located at the far eastern end of Long Island. It is about 125 miles east of New York City. Montauk is New York State’s largest commercial fishing port. This region is known as one of the sport fishing capitals of the world. It is home to over 25 current world records. The waters of Long Island Sound flow into the Atlantic Ocean at Montauk and bring in vast amounts of bait and nutrients. This attracts great schools of Striped Bass, Bluefish and Fluke. Since Montauk is all ready so far out in the ocean it makes it the closest port to the canyons and the gulfstream. This in turn creates a fantastic fishing opportunity for off shore trips for tuna, shark, and marlin. If the water is too rough for off shore fishing the in shore fishing is always great. During an in shore fishing trip anglers may encounter the following species Striped Bass, Bluefish, Fluke, Porgies, Sea Bass, and Flounder. Extract taken from Fishing Montauk, Long Island Fishing

These shoals are a series of small humps of rock sand and weedbeds that rise from 20 to 30 feet and are surrounded by deeper waters between 35 to 70 feet. The shoals begin northwest of a spot adjacent to the Washington Shoal and they extend easterly to the green number 1 gong buoy.
