The small village of Montauk (near New York) is viewed by several as the 'sportfishing resources' of the United States. This is generally because of the large existence of huge Striped Bass (also called 'stripey') in the coastal waters of Montauk. Yet, Montauk has a lot more to offer compared to just striped bass. In this post we provide a summary of the Montauk fish varieties (inshore and also offshore).
We start with 'the main occupant' of the Montauk waters: the Striped Bass. These candy striped giants could reach a size of greater than a meter as well as a weight of more than 20 kilo's. The Candy striped Bass is immensely popular with fishermen, due to its combating spirit and also great taste.
