Gage Jenkins had a 42lb 2oz Rockslob and Frank “Guiness” Stoutenberg had a 40lb 4oz angry Bass to round out 5 more Moo Cows added to the list. We didn’t have the quantity of the first trip but we sure had the quality. Although Jose Ruiz had a little quantity of his own tallying 4 Stripers to 39lbs 12 oz. (orl) JOSE-jose,jose,jose, see one for each Jose:)
Capt. Ant would like to shout out to Bob-O for bringing his Viking crew (see pix) aboard the Starship…they got the true meaning of Midnight Moo Cow Madness…and no alcohol was involved, just passionate and loyal Viking fisherman who went home with about 35lbs of fillet!!! As always fantastic job by Capt. Eric and Justin and Jesse who worked the double.

Now for Saturday night 6p trip report. Mayhem, chaos, children screaming, anglers running, mates, galley wench and Captain sprinting and gaffing. It was awesome!!! We had 3 totally insane drifts that boated over close to 40 bass of the extra large size. We had a great crowd of anglers that wanted to learn and then apply their learnings to catch a trophy bass and they did. Young children, Moms, first-timers all worked together as we drifted through one of the biggest schools of stripers I’ve ever seen on the machine…the screen was red from bottom to the top and it was all bass. Here are the notables:
Brett Marshman 44lbs and another addition to our Moo Cownter as well as the pool

Chad 38.3lbs (disciple of Jonny Jesus of the Elbow)

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.
