I am planning a trip to Montauk for some surf fishing at the end of September or early October for the fall Striper run.. Any advice on where to go and what to use would be greatly appreciated.....

I was thinking of bringing a small camper and setting up in the lot by the Lighthouse. Not sure what side of the point is best to fish from or what type of lures work best out there for Stripers.., etc..

if its your first trip out to montauk ever... sept. oct. arent the best times to be learing how to fish there... the entire shore line will be packed with people day and night and fishing shoulder to shoulder isnt for everyone... if you do go, practically every area of the point and the town beach could be holding fish at any time...look for diving birds and boiling water and you'll find the fish... problem is, so will about 30+ other guys (again shoulder to shoulder fishing)... best bet is to fish away from the crowds... walking deep on the south side gets you away from mayhem.. and you'll still have a shot at fish

That time frame is a tough period to make an initial trip to the Big M. Please be respectful of other fishermen, do not cross lines, avoid casting over the heads of waders in the surf from a perch on a higher portion of the beach. Take everything you bought with you upon leaving Montauk, leaving nothing behind. Leave the beach in the condition that it was when you found it, or perhaps even better.

The bite could be anywhere at any time. be observant of conditions, be willing to track up and down the beach in your hunt, be willing to modify your bait and/or your methods for what is available at a given point in time, go out there with a full array of equipment that can be depended upon, unless you are an experienced rock/jetty fisherman, avoid the area below the lighthouse as that is a fair place to get into very big trouble, dependent upon surf conditions.

Thanks to everyone for all the helpful info. I know it can be a little treacherous out there and may be crowded. I hope to go during a weeday to offset the crowds and will try to find a spot where its not too congested, even if it means heading more west on the beach. I am always cogizant of being considerate of other angerls as well as the environment. So no worries with me there..
