The Montauk SurfMasters spring shootout tournament will begin on May 10. The first of Montauk’s annual fishing tournaments targets striped bass.
The entry fee is $110, all but $10 of which will go into the winner’s pot. The ten bucks is for lunch on awards day, June 29. The tournament has no divisions. Waders, wetsuiters, adult men and women compete against one another. An extra prize of $100 will be awarded for the first legal-size bass (28 inches long or longer) that’s weighed in.
Shattered Glass is an appropriate name for the truly exceptional string ensemble that performed at Saturday night’s Music for Montauk program. An appropriate name because as the musicians made their final bows many in the audience felt as though something precious had been broken.
