Block Island and Outer Banks Cod
Capt Steven Jr reports a SLAMMER day on the Starship.  Easy limits all around with lots of quality fish in the teens.  Also, a nice mess of ling and some pollack were caught today.  There was good action a majority of the day with only a few slow periods. The mates were busy cutting fish from 10am to about an hour after we had arrived back at the dock.  The full coolers were well worth the long ride.  Today’s pool winner was Adam Olsen of West Islip, NY with a 24.8lb cod.  The second place pool winner was Kevin Maltezo of Staten Island, NY with a 22.2lb cod.

Block Island and Outer Banks Cod
Capt Steven Jr reports a much slower day than what we had yesterday.  Rough conditions made things tough all around.  We only found a couple fish here and there most of the day but in the later half of the day we found a little pick and had a couple flurries but it was short lived.  High hook had 6 fish, some guys had 3-5 and others had less.  Today’s first place pool winner was Daniel Staniszewki of Lindenhurst and second winner was Humberto Azanedo of Plainfield, NJ.  Hopefully we get a nice weather soon so we can relocated them.

Block Island and Outer Banks Cod
Capt Steven Sr. reports a slow start in the morning with super strong tides, picking a few cod here and there.  After moving several times we found something to work on. The tides subsided and as we drifted we started bailing the cod. Double header cod were coming over the rails as we loaded up. One drift saw every rod bent with a fish fighting its way up.  High hook had 7 or more and most anglers caught a few.   The first place pool winner was Jesus Herrara of Patterson, NJ with a 16.8 lb cod and second Jan of Flushing, NY with a 14.2 lb cod!  Awesome way to end the trip!

Block Island and Outer Banks Cod – Viking Starship
Captain Stephen Denaro reports an excellent day of cod fishing aboard the Viking Starship. We started this morning on the usual cod grounds; where very few fish were produced. So in true Viking fashion, we decided to go exploring determined to find some fish and we did. Most drifts produced 8-12 fish with our best drift producing over 30, and as the day went on the fish got bigger with an average cod weighing between 6-9 pounds. We also had a fair amount of ling in the mix today. A great day had by all with just about everybody taking home big bags of filet!  Today’s pool winner was Kevin Chan of Flushing, NY with a 18.6lb cod.
Unfortunately, due to the weather we will be cancelled tomorrow (1/23/17).

Block Island & Outer Bank Cod – Viking Starship
Capt Stephen Denaro reports a decent day of fishing. We started off the day with instant action! From the 1st to the 6th drift fishing went from a steady pick to great action as the sun came up, but shortly after the fish stopped biting. We went looking around checking over 10 different spots with little life in on each one. Just about everyone left with some fresh cod fillets with high hook having 8! Everybody on board enjoyed a beautiful day on the water!! We are sold out for Saturday’s trip, but we have plenty of space for Sunday. The first place pool winner was Dick Kessel from Amityville, NY with a 14 lb cod. The second place pool winner was Peter Rizzo from Merrick, NY with a 12 lb cod.
