Night Striped Bass

Capt, Ant reports another tough night of weather put a damper on the bass assault although we were able to get a Moo Cow out of the slop.  We battled ENE winds 20-25kts all night against the screaming flood producing a very slow and abnormal drift for the summer time.  We had nothing on the jigs, most likely because we started with the slack.  We switched to eels at the start of the tide and had a couple and that was it until the tide started to ease.  We had one very good drift at the end of the night that produced the pool fish caught by Erica Fiohr from Lindenhurst, NY 36.2lbs

Chris Luke added a 27.8lber to take second followed closely by Jonny “Jesus of the Elbow” Rewinski with a 25.7lber.  Definitely tough fishing conditions as we lost a few as well.
Full Day Porgies
Captain Dave reports a decent day of fishing despite the weather. Most fish caught were porgies with a couple of  fluke and some sea bass. The pool winner was Sandy Manvelle from NY,NY with a 3lb porgy.
