Montauk in October

  1. When they say “15 knots from the northeast” they mean 30.
  2. A “blitz” is a big-ass pile of terrified bait, crashing fish, and squaking, diving birds.
  3. When they say “seas building to 3-5 feet” they mean 6-8.
  4. Try the stuffed flounder at the Shagwong.
  5. Surf casters are territorial bastards.
  6. “Rain likely” means exactly that.
  7. “Water resistant” doesn’t cut it under these conditions.
  8. At Salivar’s you can shoot pool while admiring Frank Mundus’s gigantic shark.
