Jig & Eel Night Striped Bass
Capt Ant reports another insane Striper trip. I didn’t think it was possible to get better but it did. A new body of fish moved in and while a touch smaller in size(only 15-20lbers;) they were attacking the jigs like they hadn’t eaten in years. From start to finish we crushed it just a few shy of our limit. And the big boys are still here as well. Apologies as the pool winners names were lost in the bloody boat cleanse but the largest was 41.7lbs and second a solid 38 lbs. At least 15 fish were in the 30s and quite a few were lost. One jig hook was completely straightened on a fish.
We also had plenty of gorilla blues, sea bass, porgies and a mollywhopper fluke on an eel.

Tonight is BLock island Behemoth departing at 8p. Come on out and catch a freight train!!!!

Sunset Striper Slam
Capt. Ant reports another amazing Bass trip on the Starship.  This by far has been the greatest week of striper fishing we’ve seen in years.  Yes we had our regulars coming multiple trips to enjoy what they know has been a gift, but we had more first timers, young ladies, even small children not only catch their first Striper, but catch their first Trophy Moo Cow Linesider.  Check out the pix, they tell the story. George Jehn and Briggs Houston led the way last night nailing 3 fish apiece (only retaining limit), each in the 30-34lb class.  Chris Luke had his limit as well. Our next trip will be Thursday 6p-12midnight.  Get in on the magic!!!!

 Pool Winner was Patrick F Schneider from New Paltz with a 35.5lbs.  And a huge congratulations to young Rich Garguillo from Massapequa with a 34lber.  Rich was approximately 6 years of age (dad forgot to write it down for us:))  But he not only hooked his own fish, he battled it like a true BassMaster.  And that is why we love to take kids fishing!!!

Captain Ant reports yet another  Excellent striper Excursion on our Midnight Moo Cow Madness trip. The trip started well but the wind came on and slowed down the drift, which led to a very delicate pick and then nada for a good  hour.

Jose Ruiz from Brooklyn caught 3 (ORL) Jonny Jesus of the elbow had 3 as well (orl) But the pool fish were both whistle fish by father and son Bobby Earl and Bobby Earl Jr, largest at 36lbs.

Night Bass Jig & Eel Combo
Capt. Ant reports an EPIC night of Striper fishing.  I’ve been on the bass boat over ten year between mate and captain and never have I witnessed a feeding frenzy in the shallows of the lighthouse of trophy moo cow linesiders.  From the start it was a steady pick of cows, average size going 30lbs.  We had a lull during the slack but continued to pick a few.  Once the tide started again it was mayhem again with freight train sized stripers screaming drag from bow to stern and stern to bow.  It seemed every group went home with at least one trophy fish. But the big trophy went to Connor Garrigan of Yorktown Heights NY with a 38 lber.  John Cataldo of Holbrook was just shy with a 37.5 lber.  The regular Bassinators: George, Chris, Jay, Finn, Doug all caught their limit or more (orl).  Steven Bento who fluked all day had 4 fish to 36lbs (orl).  And Paulie Root Beer caught his largest Striper ever at 33lbs.  Imagine the majority of the boat going home with a trophy, what a great night to be a bass captain and crew.  Justin, Big Steve, Jesse and Brian were simply outstanding on deck and had the entire boat working as a team to get these mammoth fish in belly of the Starship.  If you are a bass fisherman, check out the photos…get them while its  hot!!!
Our next Bass trip departs 8p-4a tonight. And on Saturday we have 2 trips scheduled.  Our 6p-12a limited load trip is close to a sellout so please make your reservations.  We also have a trip 12 midnight-7a fishing the light of the full moon all night.  Don’t get shut out, reserve a spot for a trophy Bass!!!
