Come with me and follow the migration of the famed Striped Bass. From returning from their winter grounds in April until their departure southbound in late November, I follow a time tested pattern of fishing in the right waters at the right time.
It begins with using ultralight tackle in the back bay creeks of the Peconic Bay system in early Spring for "schoolies", and ends with chasing large schools of migrating Stripers and Bluefish in the Fall, using big tackle, in big water, on the ocean beaches of the Atlantic.
My name is Alfred Allen(Al), a NYS Licensed fishing Guide(#7906). I moved to Riverhead Town in 1986 and caught my first fish, a Bluefish, my second day here. I've been surf fishing ever since. Preferring shore bound fishing and surfcasting I have discovered many "hidden" spots that consistently produce without the need for a boat. My trips will be planned based on the skill level of the fisherman, and the time of year, in order to target areas with maximum potential.
