Largest Expansion of Artificial Reefs in State History 

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo continued the third year of the largest artificial reef expansion in New York State history, as part of the State's ongoing initiative to develop a stronger, more diverse marine ecosystem and provide habitat for fish and other marine life off of New York's shore. On September 16, materials deployed on Hempstead Reef included a rail car donated by Wells Fargo Rail Corporation (the first of a 75-car donation) and the 70-foot steel tugboat, "Jane".

Recipe: Seafood Gumbo

In a large pot stir together 1 cup of flour with 1 cup of canola oil. Use a wooden spoon when stirring so you dont damage the finish on the pot. Cook over a high heat stirring constantly for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and cook for another 8-10 minutes while stirring. Add in 2 large chopped yellow onions, 3 stalks of chopped celery, 1 chopped large green pepper and 1 cup of chopped green onions. Cook and stir for another 5 minutes then add 4 cups of chicken broth, 8 cups of water, 4 cups of sliced ocra, 2 tablespoons of paprika, 2 teaspoons of oregeno, 2 tablespoons of salt and 1 teaspoon of pepper. Bring the entire mixture to a boil then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for another 10 minutes while covered. Add in 1 lb. of cleaned peeled and deveined medium raw shrimp (no tails), 2 lbs of small bay scallops, 1 lb. of cooked andouille sausage cut into 1 inch pieces and 12 little neck clams (clean the shells before using). Add in 2 tablespoons of Cajun seasoning and simmer until the clams open. Serve over white rice with hot sauce (optional). 

When preparing this recipe its a good idea to pre-cut all of the onions, peppers, and celery. Have the shrimp and clams cleaned, the sausage cut up and all of the other ingredients out and ready to go. The rice can be cooked in a seperate pot when you have added the seafood to the gumbo and are waiting for the clams to open..............More

Super Strike Surf Lures....Strike em' Hard!

Zig Zag®
A favorite among Montauk Point fisherman. This is an excellent casting lure that should be used when there is a strong rip current. It digs deep into rips with a tremendous darting pattern. Swims 2-3 feet deep.
