Went fishing on Saturday, July 15, 2017

Buddy, daughter and I went out on a Birthday (my 59th…ouch!!!) 1/2 day run with Capt Al and mate Joe. We knew we were in great hands minute we stepped aboard…boat, gear and crew top notch and fully equipped for any/all catch. Had a great day off MTK Point…Al and Joe had us jigging and reeling our butts off and we came home with 3 keeper Bass (3 went back to live another day), 3 monster Blues, and a nice fluke. Had a few laughs too, as Al and Joe joked about following the birds- hence the line “you can’t catch bird” became our rallying cry! Great time was had by all…highly recommend Capt Al for a worthwhile time out on the big blue sea.

I went out with Captain Al on an 11:30 a.m. half-day trip with my brother and a friend. I chose Captain Al because of his good reviews and the availability of the mid-day start since we were coming from a bit upstate and didn’t want to leave our houses in the middle of the night to get there. I have gone deep-sea fishing before (in North Carolina), but never caught as much or as big than we did off Montauk. We caught at least a dozen blue fish and a few stripers (one of which we had to throw back). Captain Al told us this was a ‘bad’ day of fishing, but my friend, brother and I were thrilled with the haul. First mate cleaned the fish up and we took it home. Can’t wait to do it again and will definitely be calling Captain Al.

Thank you so much Captain Al!  Our kids had a great time and couldn’t believe how many fish they caught!  It was a welcomed catch, considering they weren’t having much luck here on the south shore.  Thank you also for the great recipe - the family loved it!  We really appreciated you accommodating the kids.  Can’t wait to come again.
