The small town of Montauk (near New york city) is seen by numerous as the 'sportfishing capital' of the United States. This is primarily as a result of the large existence of huge Striped Bass (also called 'stripey') in the coastal waters of Montauk. Yet, Montauk has far more to offer compared to just striped bass. In this write-up we provide a summary of the Montauk fish types (inshore and offshore).
We start with 'the major resident' of the Montauk waters: the Striped Bass. These striped powerhouses can reach a length of even more than a meter as well as a weight of more than 20 kilo's. The Candy striped Bass is greatly preferred with fishermen, due to its fighting spirit as well as great taste.
