I love fishing for Albies around Gardiner's and Plum Island on a nice September day - it don't get any better than that in my book.

They're more green when they are in the water. Very cool to see up close.

Beautiful fish! I was out there over the weekend too. I use to catch them every Sept. off Center Island beach growing up. Anyone still see them in the western sound these days?

You get them once in a while on the beach, especially during the bigger blitzes at Montauk. They'll even hit a pencil popper at times.
