The Golden Age of Montauk Sportfishing: Interviews with Eight Legendary Captains

This new book by author Bill Akin includes personal stories from rum-running in the 1920s, and the "Golden Age of Sporfishing" from the early 1950s through the 1970's when swordfish, giant bluefin tuna, and white marlin were plentiful in the northeast.  A third section of the book addresses how overfishing with longlines, driftnets, and foreign factory trawlers resulted in severe declines in pelagic game fish stocks, and how regulations put in place since 1980 have impacted both the fisheries and the lives of modern fishermen. The book is told as an oral history in the words of eight Montauk charter boat captains who fished Montauk as well as the east coast from Bimini to Cape Cod. The author first met these captains as a young boy fishing with his father in the early 1950s and developed friendships with each of them as he grew older and made Montauk his hometown.
