It seem's like the Albie fishing was slow this year. I know Montauk was not like it usually is. For all the Albie addict's you should try fishing the east coast of Florida for them. I say it's the Albie capitol. I went to Harker's for 3 year's & it was very good, i've been doing Montauk since 97 & have to say that Fla. is in a league of it's own. The weather is nicer the fish are big & there's alot of other specie's.
