Monday July 15
Capt. Ant reports one of the most beautiful sunsets ever on the Sunsets Striper trip. Oh yeah and it was a Monday Night Massacre!!! Fishing started slow with one keeper and 1 short on the first 5 drifts so we made a drastic move and it paid off big time as we hit the mother load. Nothing huge but perfect jigging fish as we tallied 31 keepers to 23 pounds. The best part of it was that 24 of our fares landed at least 1 keeper…. what an unbelievable bunch of anglers. Mark Foster, Marco Pierson, Rob Brown, Chris Sauza, Bill Podlewski, and Radoslaw Dabrowski all had their limit. Peter Foster of Wading River took the pool with a 23lber and Mark Foster of Stormville NY took 2nd with a 21lber…way to keep it in the family boys!!! Check out these pix of the beautiful Viking Star pointed into the sunset and the results of this epic voyage!!
Half Day Fluke AM
Captain Joe reports very good fishing with beautiful weather and a great day overall. We had 19 keeper fluke on board and a few market size scup in the mix. The pool winner was Mr Vincent Bruno from Farmingdale, NY with a 5.2lber.
Montauk Full Day Porgies and Sea Bass
Captain Dave reports a better day of fishing today. They had great conditions with nice sized porgies, a few sea bass, a couple fluke, and one 15lb striper! Today’s pool winner was Ted Gallis of S. Plainfield, NJ with a 3.5lb porgy.
