Block Island Behemoth Striped Bass
Friday July 19 Block Island Behemoth Bass Captain Ant reports a Bassacre over at the Island last night and this morning. From start to finish it was multi fish drifts and ended the night totaling 52 keeper BI Bass. We had to change zone…s due to last nights breeze and a moon ebb tide and we found perfect drifting conditions, and catching conditions. Several fares had their limit including our good friend Rodney from Delaware, Frank Stoutenberg, Mike Sadowski, John Rewinski, just to name a few. Joe Khamis, the Derby winner two years ago did his best to get atop the leader board but only managed a 38.2lb Block Island Behemoth. Most fish were in the 20lb class last night, still quality but plenty of quantity along with it. Here are a few photos, …more to come later of the Bloodbath at Block!!! Pool winner Mr Joseph Khamis, Yonkers, NY 38.2lb Second Place Azamat Evgamuka, Tocuaco, NJ with a 35lbs.
Half Day Fishing PM
The afternoon trip was ok. Fishing was a little difficult due to the increasing wind and tide, making the drift a little faster than ideal, however we still picked away at fish.
Half Day Fishing AM
Captain Ant and first mate Steve are completely exhausted from this mornings half day. We averaged 3 keepers a customer with 3 at their limit, one with 6 (only retaining his limit) and Freddy Shea with 7 (only retaining his limit). It was sick fluking. Most fish were between 3 and 5lbs. The pool winner was Michael Osgood from Oceanside, NY with a 4.75lber. Freddy had a 5.85lber.
Full Day Porgies
Captain Dave reports a slow start this morning but managed to find a good amount of fish late in the day. Nice size porgies were caught. A bunch of fluke and some sea bass were caught as well. The pool winner was Fitz Corbin with a 4 1/4 lb Jumbo Porgy.
