The Fall Run of Montauk stripers has been exceptional this year. Ever since Hurrican Irene passed by the fishing has been lights out!

I will admit that is tough to beat for sure.

I think I ended my worst bass year of all time since they made their comeback. I swear Buzzards Bay/Vineyard sound just wasn't the same.

It is also weird because for the past four years or so I've always had schoolies at the dock in the morning cutting up clams for scup/seabass, never happened this year. The other thing was in our afternoon trips we picked up a few bass here and there during those bottom trips towards the end of the spring, that never happened. Something to that I think.

All those stripers were taken drifting live eels. Ever since Hurricane Irene passed thru that started the fall run for us. The encouraging thing was we did catch bass of all sizes. I would say from 26" and up. We were also able to realease a bunch of nice breeder sized fish. I am not denying that the bass population is not what it once was. In the past, 8 - 10 years ago catching your limit was never a problem. Sometimes now during the summer it's a struggle! My feeling is that at the very least we should raise the minimum size limit, possibly a slot limit I don't know. I started Bass fishing in earnest right before the moratorium, when you couldn't catch any bass. So I know what is was like and I really don't want to go back there! I really appreciate all of your comments. What do you guys think should be done?

3 Day After Irene

My brother Pete (Capt Miss Mac) mentioned the Montauk striper fishing after the hurricane. Here is a video of when it lifted off, two days after the fishing blew, then bam, next day- lift off. We only kept 3-fish that day all others were released none the worst for wear.

That one was 54.6 caught October 9 a few years ago. Got lucky I usually hook em and hand em off, on that day had a cousin and a few of his friends aboard, they had already caught some nice ones, decided to hook and keep one for mysef.

This year bassing was real good for us except for the July full moon, which was very disappointing for some reason.

The T-Jason 35 has been good to me so far powered by a 3126.

windows

I have Wynne windows, and the one on the port side is great, of course the one on the helm leaks by the rivet used in manufacturing when water pools in the sill. There is a plastic cap in the drain holes that I removed, and felt weather stripping which I cut slightly for better draining, but if I lean against it when its wet, I get a little wet. Annoying, but oh well.
