April 17th-38 Hour Tile/Hake/Wreck Express

Capt Steven Sr. reports an excellent start to our 2015 Offshore Fishing Season! After losing a bunch of trips because of weather, we were very excited to get out there! We were welcomed with perfect conditions, and hungry fish from the deep waters! All day long we caught a good, steady pick of Golden Tilefish, mostly in the medium to large range class, and also had a mix of Pollack, Cod, Hake, Barrelfish, a few Blue Line Tilefish, Cusk, and even a few Rosies! We did have some dogfish in the mix also, but they weren’t too bad. By day’s end, some guys had a limit of golden tiles, and a mess of other deep water dwellers to bring home, and others had a couple tile and other species. Everyone on board went home with Golden Tilefish and more! Capt Carl, Capt Davey, and Capt Steve D cut fish for over 4 hours on the way home! It was a great trip once again, and we want to thank everyone who joined us! Joseph “Pennsylvania Joe” Gornik who has been fishing with the Viking Fleet for over 30 years offshore, and has won second prize in the pool a few times, finally took top honors with the largest Tilefish of the trip at 36 lbs! Way to go Joe! Sang Yoon was able to sneak away with the edible pool with a 22 lb Barrelfish… Just barely edging out a couple other 20+lb barrels!

Mon March 2

ENUF was ENUF – was had by a bunch of Montauk Boys! Capt Steven and Capt Kenny put a trip together on the Viking Fivestar and it took about 20 mintutes to sell out by word of mouth, and off we went. By flying down on Feb 23rd and returning on Feb 27th this gave us a couple days of nice weather. We landed in Orlando and in 45 minutes we were at the boat in shorts and t-shirts. After getting organized, we left at 3pm and steamed 3 hours. Fishing was on! We fished for mango snapper, be liners, pink porgies, jack’s, triggers. All kinds of stuff! We had red snapper and grouper everywhere we went. Unfortunately they are closed on the East Coast this time of year. For some ridiculous reason it was hard to stay away from them, but they were fun to catch and throw back to be caught again! Red Snapper to 25lbs, Gag Grouper to 25lbs All Released!! We did manage a nice mess of fish to bring back for show and tell. We only got to fish for 36 hours before the weather turned on us with 25 to 30 NE. So we headed in to enjoy the warm weather before we had to head home on Friday. We did manage to sneak in a little land fun with miniature golf and go-cart racing. A good time was had by all. Thanks Steve O!

Sun Feb 1

Captain Carl reports a very, very slow day on the Viking Starship. We had a lot of wind and left over seas to contend with. It seemed to have shut everything down. We scratched out 1 keeper cod, a few shorts, a handful of ling and a few bergalls. It was a very cold, slow day. There was a lot of bait around, so we are looking forward to getting back out there after all this horrible weather finally calms down. The pool winner was Michele Conenna of Brooklyn, NY with a 23 1/2 Inch cod. We are watching the weather for this upcoming week, and it looks like the next time we will get out for Local Cod will be on Wednesday, February 4th at 3am. Please call the office to make a reservation 631-668-5700 or book online at www.vikingfleet.com.

Fri Jan 23

Local Cod
Captain Steven Sr reports we ended up better than we thought! After an extra hour and 45 mins of fileting fish at the dock with Capt Steven Sr, Capt Dave and Ray- we probably averaged 3-5 cod, 3-7 ling, 3-5 xl bergalls for everyone to go home with. And everyone left with a hefty bag of meat! The morning bite was the key of the day. After 9:30am it was slow but we still managed few cod and lots of bergalls throughout the rest of the day. Still lots of bait in all areas water temp still 44 surface and 46-47 on bottom, so still good days to come. A big thank you to all who were on board from Capt Steven Sr, Capt Dave and Ray. The first place pool winner was Geoff Hollander of Syosset with a 15lb cod and in second place was Mark Schwarz of Great Neck with a 18lb pollack.

Wed Jan 21

Local Cod

Captain Dave reports that we started the day with plenty of action but unfortunately very few keepers. We worked our way around and made a few stops stopping on a wreck where we had a good shot of Pollack and cod. Throughout the day we had shots of fish here and there but they were mostly on the smaller side. Capt. Dave decided to put in some extra time and all of a sudden one area  turned on producing double headers from 8 to 12 pounds. We also caught a nice shot of Cod in the 12 to 18 pound class. Both jigs and bait worked well. Jessie James from Bridgetown NJ had three double headers and was the first place winner of today’s Cod pool with a beautiful 18 pounder! Second place went to Tony Cruz of Brooklyn NY with a 13lb Cod. It was a very exciting end to a good day of fishing. We had many smiling anglers coming off the Viking Starship. We are definitely sailing tomorrow Friday Jan 23 at 3am so call for a reservation at 631-668-5700 or come on down. The ticket office will be open at 2am for ticket sales. Tickets can always be booked online at www.vikingfleet.com.
