Flood Chaser Striped Bass
Capt Ant reports that we grinded out a catch last night on Flood Chaser Bass, but it was grueling. It seemed every drift started with a fish and followed with a dud. the elbow area was overtaken with gorilla blues and after having only one bass where we bailed them on Thursday, we moved on. Next spot we had one then three, then 0, 0, 0… We tried about 7 other rocks and again 1 here 1 there… On our last drop we had a beauty, the pool winner, a MOO COW LINESIDER caught by Donna Dersch from Syosset, NY. It weighed in at 38lb 17oz! JB Breitstone from Long Beach NY took second place with a 30lb 7oz striper. Overall we caught a fillet a fare. Mike Sadowski had his limit to 20lbs.
Half Day Fluke PM
Captain Joe reports an okay afternoon of fluke fishing today. The trip started with one of the best drifts of the season. Every rod was doubled over for over an hour! After that, the tide dropped out but we still picked away. Every group had keepers to go home with. The pool winner was Laura D’Elia of Port Jefferson NY with a 4.5lb fluke.
Half Day Fluke AM
Capt Joe reports a very good morning of fluke fishing. The weather was a bit dreary but the fishing was on! Check back later for the pool winners!
Full Day Porgies and Sea Bass
Capt Dave reports that fishing was better today than it has been the last few days. The porgies were on the smaller side. We had a good mix of sea bass and fluke, as well as good shot of bluefish. Apollo Abiad from the Philippines took the porgy pool with a 3.5lbs porgy. The biggest edible fish was a 13lbs bluefish caught by Keith Bonnes.
Striped Bass Schedule Update
Attention Viking Bass Assassins:
We have amended the schedule tonight, due to the Starship being offshore we are sailing the Flood Chase trip Only which departs at 730p and returns at 230a. The weather is improving and we will have our flood tide with a SW wind again (actually they are calling for variable) so conditions should be prime for drifting. Reservations are recommended as the Flood Chaser is a limited trip. We’ve had 4 fish over 40lbs over the last week and over 20 over 30lbs…now is the time for a Cow!! And here are the photos from last night’s Behemoth Trip.
