Thanks for posting!

This site used to be a great resource for the region.
Thanks for the picture, tight lines.


I don't have a hobby, I fish.

I walked up on a giant leatherback carcass which had washed up just to the right of the Lighthouse in Montauk about 10 years ago. Somebody said that it might have been 200 years old since it was as big as a Volkeswagon Beetle. It flippers were about 3 ft. long.
