Montauk/Amagansett trip help
So I am a big striper fisherman up here in Boston/South shore area.. I spend alot of time live lining macks/ live eels/ clams/ bunker/ herring -- and definitely consider myself a (relatively) experienced fisherman so not looking for a "fishing 101" response.
Anyways, my lady's family has a place in Amagansett, NY which from what I recall (havent been in 5 years) is between Montauk and East Hampton.. they have a beach cottage right on Napeague Bay right near the Harbor entrance.
I have seen folks surfcasting from the beach and have tried over the years to catch some stripers without much luck, I've mostly just tried some pencil poppers/swimmers etc without alot of luck but admittingly it was definitely a half-assed attempt.
This year I want to be the trip I catch some fish, I am bringing down my 10' surfcasters and can fish all night since I "volunteered" to sleep in a tent on the back deck so i can sneak down and fish all night...brilliant!
Anyways I've attached an image that may help - can anyone show me areas of interest? If you need more perspective I would say just google "Napeague harbor" - we are right at the mouth of the harbor and I also have a small zodiac i could jump over to Hicks Island Goff point..
Any help is much appreciated.. looking for any ides on where to try different baits at what tides etc... I would guess that trying outgoing/incoming would be best to cast into some eddys
Anyways, Is anyone familiar with this area? what is best to use? I was going to rig up some fish finder rigs with some clams and then use a lighter setup with some plugs as the current isnt that wide and I can easily cast across the harbor opening..
For anyone interested -- here is a map.. Basically the house is situated way to the left, where the Napeague harbor opens up into Napeague bay...
