 The Striped Bass is the largest member of the sea bass family. Striped Bass can live up to 40 years and can reach weights greater than 100 pounds. The Striped Bass is anadromous and may ascend streams and travel as much as 100 miles inland to spawn. The native range is along the Atlantic coast east of the Appalachian Mountains from New Brunswick south to Florida. The Striped Bass is a very important sport and commercial fish throughout its range.

 Striped Bass feed most actively at dusk to dawn, although some feeding occurs throughout the day. During the summer they tend to become more nocturnal feeding mostly at night.

 Striped Bass eat a variety of foods, including fish such as alewives, flounder, sea herring, menhaden, silver hake, smelt, sea robins, porgies, and eels. They will also feed on lobsters, crabs, soft clams, small mussels, sea worms, and squid.

 They have a voracious appetite and will eat almost anything that moves. Stripers are particularly active with tidal and current flows and in the wash of breaking waves along the shore. As the surf pounds the shoreline small fish, crabs, and clams become easy prey as they are tossed about in turbulence of the breaking surf.

  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.

  Montauk Harbor has a great fleet of commercial fishing and charter boats to choose from. There is also a large selection of party boats which leave port on daily fishing excursions as well. If you are looking to indulge your self with some of the best fishing the Atlantic Ocean can dish up Montauk is the place to be.
