Saturday 18th

Night Striped Bass
Capt Ant reports the absolute perfect fall run night of basing with rods bending from start to finish with bass of all sizes and blues of all sizes. In total we boated around 175 fish, with a 50/50 split between bass and blues, a true Viking Bloodbath.  The later departure helped as we finally had a perfect wind with tide drift and as expected the feedbag was on.  Many had their limits and other than Martin Wellen Dowd, who had the whoppa choppa affliction every drift, most had at least one keeper Striper.    Fish ranged from 24″ to 40″ with the pool fishing coming in at 38lbs.  Once again the “A” team of Justin, Marissa and Phil were cutting at the dock for an hour after return with happy anglers going home with beautiful fillets of meat.  What a night!!!!
The wind looks as if its laying down for most of the week, and we will be sailing Wednesday through Friday FULL DAY live eel trips at 6a-12 noon.  Our next NIGHT Live Eel trip will be Thursday at 6p-12 Midnight, Friday Behemoth Hunt limited 730p-230a, Saturday 6p-12 Midnight and Sunday Special 530p-1030p.  Half Day Jigging takes place Saturday and Sunday 7a-12noon and 1-5p.

Block Island Porgies and Sea Bass
Captain Dave reports a good day today aboard the Viking Starship. We had plenty of nice big porgies today along with some nice sea bass up to 4lbs. We also had about a dozen keeper cod and a load of blues. Today’s first place pool winner was Fernando Flores of Brooklyn with a HUGE 4.5lb porgy and in second place was Robert Rodriguez of Union City NJ with a 10lb cod.

Fall Bass Day Time Jigging Only Am
Capt Anthony D reports a fair morning of fishing Despite the sea conditions. And wind against tide. Our anglers tough it out at the rails and managed to put together a decent catch of bluefish, inshore tuna sea bass and scup.The pool winner Carl Holiday from East Hampton with a 11.5 inshore Tuna

 

Behemoth Bass Hunt Fridays
Capt Ant reports a slow night on the bass grounds.  The offshore hurricane produced a pretty steep swell against the ebb tide that rendered most hotspots unfishable.  We picked a few but it seemed the aggression we’ve seen lately was deterred by the heave.  We put in extra time waiting for the flood and again picked but nothing materialized.  Plenty of bait, fish marks everywhere, absolutely conditions related.  Pool winner was James Milano from North Babylon, finally taking a pool after many many trips…well deserved James!!!!  Second place was Jack Miov from Brighton Beach via the Ukraine who once again placed in the Rubels!!!  Jack also had his limit.
Reminder that tonights trip time is changed to 8p-2a as the wind direction is supposed to changed and work in our favor with a better Ebb drift.  They won’t stay hungry for long!!!!

Block Island Porgies and Sea Bass
Captain Dave reports an okay day of fishing despite the windy weather this morning. We had plenty of porgies, some nice quality sea bass, about a dozen keeper cod and a couple blues. Today’s first place pool winner was Nicki from Brooklyn with a HUGE 4.7ln porgy and in second place was Guadalupe Lopez with an 11lb cod.

 

2 Night Tuna LTD

Capt Carl reports yet another good solid tuna trip on the Viking star! The trip started out just about as bad as it can get, sitting through the whole first night with only a couple shark bites. We waited around for a morning bite that never happened so we finally made a move and anchored up again a couple miles away and within 10 minutes we started catching! They bit very well right in the middle of the day for a couple hours both albacore and some big yellowfins! Then, it slowed to a pick where we would catch one, wait 10 minutes, catch another, and so on, until about 5 pm when we hooked a big eye and fought it for a while but the fish eventually won and got away. During the night, we had another quick shot of tunas, and landed 5 swordfish, BUT, all the swords were undersized and released. All in all we made a good trip out of it and had a box full of tuna and everyone went home with tuna! Zack Weiner took the tuna pool with a 80 lb yellowfin! The Viking Star  is right back out for our last trip of the season and will return Saturday afternoon. Capt Carl, Capt Jerry, Alex, and the rest of the Tuna crew do want to thank everyone for coming with us for this absolutely amazing 2014 Tuna season! If anyone still wants to go tuna fishing, the boats in New Jersey will continue to fish and we recommend The Voyager, The Jamaica, The Doris Mae, or The Gambler. Thanks Again!

Columbus Day Extended Moo Cow Special
Capt. Ant reports the perfect ending to a perfect week of Night Bass.  And I mean perfect.  Once again we limited out a full Starship of Bass Assassins!!!! The bite started later with the tide but was even more ferocious as we were pulling an average of 10-12 fish a drift.  It was chaos at its finest, blood, tangles, yelling, screaming, laughing, rejoicing, everything that makes being a Party Boat captain one of the greatest jobs in the world!!!:) George Jehn led the way with 8 fish and a pair of 30′s.  Gary Bigfish had 4, Jose Ruiz had 4, Paul Ryan complained as usual and still had 4, Steven Bento, well at least his nephew caught and also had 4.  The one and only Lovely Lindsay came back again and only had one, but she’s lovely enough to make mention!!! Thank you guys for the after party at the fillet table!!  Again fish were a mix of sizes but we had a couple more Behemoths.  Chris Evers from Pound Ridge took the pool with a 44.09lb trophy and Stuart Kravette from Commack NY too a well deserved 2nd after I beat him up in the am trip with a 42lber.  Two absolute beauties!!!!
So 4 out of 5 trips limited, actual proof that the Striped Bass population couldn’t be healthier, and another Epic week of fishing on the Mighty Viking Starship!!!  So very grateful for my crew, Justin, Marissa and Phil, my kids…lol!!!  Their energy, passion and drive, and shear talent on deck helped send people home with some fantastic memories of Montauk in the fall.  Next night trip will be Thursday at 6p….reservations recommended!!!!!Block Island Porgies and Sea Bass
Captain Dave reports its “full on porgy time!” We had a great day of porgy fishing today with nice big porgies. We also had some keeper cod and some sea bass in the mix along with a few blues. Today’s first place pool winner was Mike Smith of Queens with a 3lb porgy and in second was John Dong of Shirley NY with a 10lb blue.

Evening Live Eel Trip
Captain Ant reports another kick-bass voyage! We didn’t limit, but were only 13 shy for a sold out boat. The blues started slow but once the moon rose the bite was on. Tough drifting conditions meant nothing once they started feeding. Again mixed sizes but Anthony Kerimian took the pool with a 38 pounder and the lovely Lindsay Rapeport took 2nd with a 35 pounder. Lindsay had 3 bass and 1 blue. Steven Bento had 3, Martin Wellen Dowd had 3, Pual Ryan hacked as usual but still managed a bass. Thankfully, after two trips of watching others bail, Marc Summers landed a 15 pounder on the 2nd to last drift! Outstanding work by the A Team on the deck last night. Unfortunately we are sold out tonight.

2 Day Tuna
Capt Carl reports another good tuna trip on the Viking star! We trolled for the first half of the day and caught some mahi mahi and a couple albacore. Then, we anchored up and immediately started catching! We caught albacore very good into dark when we continued to catch them, and the yellowfin started to bite too! We picked away until about midnight, and things slowed down with just a couple more yellowfin caught until it was time to go home. We also caught more mahi mahi through the night as they came around the boat too. We ended up with a nice catch and happy anglers! The pool winning tuna was an 80 lb yellowfin and the edible pool was taken with a 15 lb mahi. I lost the pool winners names, but special mention goes to Billy Lindroth and company for doing a great job fishing and we had a lot of fun with you guys!

Block Island Porgies and Sea Bass
Captain Dave reports a decent day of fishing today aboard the Viking Starship. We had some smaller sized fish today and tried to hide away from the weather, but we had good action all day. There were plenty of porgies and everyone had their limit or close to it of sea bass. We also had some blues in the mix. Today’s first place pool winner was Xuz Tran of NY with a 4lb porgy and in second place was Luis Runa of Union, NJ with an 8lb bluefish.

Evening Live Eel Trip
Capt. Ant reports insanity on the mighty Starship.  Full boat limit, with mixed sizes from 16 inches to 38lbs caught by Chris cool hand Luke who tallied 11 for the night.  Frank Stoutenberg came back and whacked them again.  Newly married Sam Kelly was allowed out and whacked 5.  Surfcaster Alex Kassian had 6.  Once it turned on it just would not turn off, crazy night.  Doug Seay had his limit and then some.  All who caught more only retained the legal amount.

.

Block Island Porgies and Sea Bass
Captain Dave reports a slower day today due to the full moon conditions, but we had some really nice nice quality fish today. We didn’t have a lot, but everything coming over the rails were BIG BIG porgies and sea bass. We also had about a half dozen keeper cod. Today’s first place pool winner was Milton Nelson of Deer Park with a 3.8lb porgy and in second place was Barron Uamilten of Amityville with a 7lb cod.

 

Full Moon Tuna/ Sword Ultra Limited
Captain Carl reports a slower trip compared to what we have been seeing, but still put a catch together. Trolling on Day 1 saw plenty of mahi mahi and also a yellowfin and a couple albacore. We set up for the night and had some early bites of yellowfin and albacore, then everything shut down for the rest of the night. Day 2 saw more great mahi fishing on the troll, but no tunas. Again we set up for the second night and again we saw early action with a couple yellowfin and albacore and a couple released pup swords and we lost a couple good swords. Day 3 saw rough weather and tough fishing on the troll besides a couple more mahi mahi. That night, again we released a couple small swords but got one keeper out of it. All in all fishing was slower on the tunas than it has been, but we had lots of mahi mahi up to 25lbs for everyone. Bob Gregson from Newtown, CT took both pools with a 60lb yellowfin and an 80lb swordfish.

(orl) Alex Kassian Limited out.  Bobbo and Bobbo Jr limited out.  But it was the one lone lovely lady, a Starship sharpie, Doreen who battled the fish of the night.  At the height of the tide Doreen nailed a 44.7 Blood Moon Behemoth.  Great job Doreen!!!!
Who knows what tonight will bring, but we are departing promptly at 6pm!!!!!!!!
