Fri April 22 to Sun April 24 – 2 Day Wreck Trip
Captain Steven Jr reports a good trip with a nice mix of wreck dwellers. Day one we spent on the deeper water wrecks and had a mix of pollock, tiles, hake, wreck fish and barrel fish. Unfortunately we had tons of the XL sea bass, that we had to throw back, on every wreck we went to. The second day we moved inshore to the cod wrecks and had good action on every drop, but we had a lot of smaller fish. Ron Armet put together a nice catch with a dozen cod, 10 pollock, plus a couple of tile and hake. Also, Tyler Quaresimo filled his cooler up with 15 cod, a dozen pollock, a couple tile, wreck fish and a nice barrel fish. The tile pool went to Bruce Wahl from Greenport, NY with a 26.2 pound fish. The cod pool went to Sal Polisi from West Islip with a 16.5 lb fish. The edible pool winner was Don Wetzel from Riverdale, NJ with a 22.5 lb wreck fish.

Local Cod
Capt Carl reports absolutely phenomenal cod fishing today on the Viking Star! We had a capacity crowd out to enjoy the nice weather, and from our first drop to our last, we had drop and stick hit the bottom and you gottem cod! Double headers were a normal occurrence of keepers and it was just epic! All market size perfect cod with gaffers all around! We filled every cooler on the boat and some! The crew started cutting fish early, and all the way back to the dock, and then Capt Carl joined in for 2 more hours of filleting. It was just one of those days our anglers will remember forever! Bajram Lleshi from Staten Island, NY found a bigger cod in the mix and won the pool with a 18 pounder… While Joe Volpe of Port Washington, NY took second with a  15 pounder. Unfortunately the next two days look like crap for weather, but we will try for Saturday! Check the photos!
