Sea Bass will also be very active with larger fish moving on to the nearby wrecks and structure. The limit on Sea Bass through the end of the season (12/31) is 7 fish per day 15" in length. Sea Bass are very aggressive and will take either Clam, Squid  or Spearing. For a shot at some larger fish try jigging with a A27 or A47 tubeless single hook Diamond Jig. When bait fishing or jigging offshore Reefs and structure you will also have a shot at larger Porgies, Ling (Red Hake) and the occasional Codfish. So if your looking to fill your freezer with some tasty fillets for the winter, now is the time to go.

Earlier in the week Montauk I witnessed a a day-time blitzes along its south side. Schoolie stripers and bluefish were crashing on rainbait and other bait fish. Angers were using  Joe Baggs bucktails and small tins to catch these fish. . At one point the fish were blitzing right at my feet.  It was quite the exciting event.
