Night Striped Bass Full Moon
Capt Ant reports a disappointing full moon trip last night.  The jigging part of the trip was awesome considering conditions.  The variable forecast wind was east about 15kts and made drifting difficult with the 4 knot tide but we were catching every drift.  Just like the night before we had about 25 or so total fish, half of which went back in the first 2 hours.  It was solid jigging.  We also had a mix of big blues and a couple of keeper flukes.  Obviously optimism was high as we switched to eels.  1 more fish the rest of the night.  We had bites, we had a few  moo cows on and fought for awhile, but the bass gods were not on our side last night.  They say east is least and I’m starting to believe it.  They also say hair or no hair, we have to keep combing.  We’ll be out again Thursday on the Starship for vengeance!! 

Porgies & Sea Bass

Captain Dave reports that fishing was very good lots of porgies in the morning a bit smaller in size. In the afternoon we had bigger porgies and sea bass along with some fluke in the mix.
