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!!!!

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!
