Capt. Craig Cantelmo has been sharing the excitement of sight fishing Shinnecock Bay and the Peconics for the past 30 years and has been a pioneer of fishing the North Fork to Montauk. Specializing in fly and light tackle spin for Striped bass, weakfish, bluefish and false albacore in a new 2020 Pathfinder 25 Hybrid. From throwing top water plugs along secluded shorelines or flies to cruising fish in just inches of water you’ll share some of the most beautiful areas and encounter some of the largest fish Long Island has to offer. Capt. Craig has published many fishing articles in local and national publications and has been featured in a number of television appearances.
