Headed to montauk last week of aug. camping at heather hills, looking to take the boys ( 16& 18) on a party boat looking at the Viking or Lazy Bones not sure which one or others, have not been on too many party boats surf fishing mostly. Looking to really just have a good time, catching fish will be a plus. This is may be the last trip to Montauk with my sons as they aren't so much into camping any more, too bad cause they cut there teeth at shag & shinncock. But along came girls & college so any recommendation would be helpful gear, boat, food, etc. Funny how the boys would cry when we used to leave camping to come home, now 3 days is too long for them to be away from their friends. Thanks

Whomever is doing porgies (quite possibly both) if you want a catch. I've only fished on Viking boats,which tend to be sloppy as hell, but .. mostly I ain't fussy. If I catch, it's good.

Thanks for the info Brian, was hoping for fluke. I know things are slow in August. We'll see what happens when we get out there.

Lazybones is a great operation but Fluking will be closed last week of August due to NYS regulations. That leaves you with Porgies or possibly jigging blues and bass if one of the fluke boats switch over.





Another non fishing option for 16-18 year old boys would be to rent a boat at Uhiliens and go water skiing in the Lake, back of Montauk Harbor. I know when I was that age we really had some great times doing just that.

Although the regular fluke season closes (as stated above) there are boats that will still be fluke fishing under the rsa permit. I believe the rsa permit allows for 4 keepers (not sure though). The Marlin VI Princess will be fluking full day at the end of August. I fished on that boat last year and limited (4 fish) early both days I fished. We had fluke on just about every drift and pool fish both days were over 10 pounds. Great crew, good folks on the boat, leaves at 7 am returns around 4 pm.

sc537 -
A good heads up... check first. That's a great way for the gals to loose interest and not want to join you again.
The captain ought to be... for having conditions like that.
