Fishing day of a lifetime! Capt Sal and mate Jimmy put us on so many big fish that my arms were falling off by the end of the trip. Two 40 pound and a 30 lb stripers plus two more good sized keepers and plenty of scrappy 10 pound blues. These guys certainly delivered on the legendary Montauk fishing experience!
