The little village of Montauk (near New York) is viewed by many as the 'sportfishing resources' of the United States. This is mostly because of the large existence of huge Striped Bass (also called 'stripey') in the seaside waters of Montauk. Yet, Montauk has far more to offer than just striped bass. In this short article we provide an introduction of the Montauk fish species (inshore and also overseas).

The Candy striped Bass is profoundly preferred with fishermen, due to its fighting spirit and also great preference.
