The bass bite is banging in Montauk, both inshore and from the shore, with surfcasters shoulder to shoulder on the rocks at the point looking to get in on the blitz.

At sea, last Thursday Jamie Wallace (above) landed a 48-pound striper aboard Captain Mario Melito’s the Lady Grace out of Westlake Marina.

Same day the Hamptons’ most eligible bachelor, Jimmy Conigliaro (below), showed he’s an outdoorsy dude. He landed this 32-pounder aboard the Grand Slam, which sails out of Gone Fishing Marina.

According to one old salt source, the action will continue right into November.
