Indy Fishing Report – From: The Surf
Action has slowed on the beaches . . . Know of a couple of sharpies keeping it honest, some short bass was taken, one bass in the low teens. All the action in Montauk was at night at the Lighthouse and south side rocks. Eric The Treeman Ernst played rock hopper and whacked a couple of bass at the Lighthouse last night in the low 20s, dropped one keeper bass at the bluff area. A school of bluefish was spotted on the Town beaches.
Do the midnight run and you should have some nice bass action with bluefish.

The morning fluke run yielded a four-pound fluke to take the pool for Mike Aloisio. The afternoon saw another four-pounder as the winner, with the lucky angler Winston Lo. We had a shark charter out today with the John Getens construction crew from NYC. The guys had fun with two nice makos.
Saturday night bass was very good. Paul Dill was high hook with four keepers. Ray Reiz nabbed a 32-pounder. There were three other fish weighing in the 30-lb. range. Dan O’Keefe was the big pool winner with his 45-lb. striped bass!
Please let readers know that the week after Labor Day, Fridays will resume as a full day 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. schedule.
