Far & Deep Exploring New Grounds – May 18th to May 22
Captain Steven Sr. reports the Far & Deep Trip was outstanding. We went FAR! and DEEP! Weather, fishing and our explorers were great! Day 1 – Full coolers of tile, big pollack, hake in the first four hours. We then took a little ride looking around and we had a mid-day pick, but by 4pm it was on again with big tiles, barrel’s, hake, and northern grouper with double headers and even a triple header on 2 hooks! We had full coolers again by dark. Day 2 – Exploring for LG tile was slow the first half of the day, but by 11am tiles of all sizes started coming over the rail. For three hours it was good – good. Full coolers again. The PM big fish hunt was on and we had LG tiles coming over the rail up to 42.2lbs. That finished up the day. Day 3 – We went cod fishing on a few wrecks and it was Lock and Load with a mix of keepers and shorts. By 1pm it was time to call it a trip with plenty-plenty of fish. The coolers were packed with meat! We had 9 fish over 30lbs with 4 of them being over 40lbs. Chris Link showed his big tile skills with 2 tile over 30lbs and the pool winner at 42.2lbs. Other pool winners were Dave Mercado with a 15lb cod and Alex with a 25lb northern grouper. Capt Steven Sr, Capt Dave, Jesse and Joey “Galley” want to thank everyone who was willing to go far & deep! It was truly a great trip.

Fri May 6th to Sun May 8th – 38 Hour Tile Express
Captain Steven Sr reports that despite “Mother Nature” we beat our way out to the grounds. We did not have a great start to the trip due to the conditions. Fishing was very slow. By 11AM conditions straightened out and we had good drifts with excellent fishing until about 2PM with double headers coming over the rails. Then “Mother Nature” gave us a curve ball and fishing slowed down. By about 5PM things changed and we started picking away again until we had to go home. Captain Steven Sr and mates Steve “Ho” and Steve Martinez filleted for over 3 hours sending everyone home with a great product. All in all it was a good trip with everyone taking home plenty of fish. High hook was Michael Bunch from East Hampton, NY with tile, hake and barrel fish. The first place pool went to Joey Montalto from Bronx, NY and second place went to Jacob Leifer from Hershey, PA. The largest edible pool went to Adam Nowak from Linden, NJ with a barrel fish. *Sorry there are no photos due to the mates being so busy with the Sold Out trip!
