Block  Island Flood Chaser Striped Bass- CHECK OUT OUR UPDATED MOO COWNTER!
Capt Ant reports a Behemoth of a night at the Island. The first 2 hours we starved for a drift and caught nothing. We left our normal spot and hit another BANG! We found’em and BIG! George Jehn nailed a 45.7lber. We drilled out a pick and had about 10 fish over the 30lb mark. We went back to our normal spot for a few and MOOO- Joseph Patrone hooked into a Goliath. He fought it perfectly and a stellar job by both Eric and Joey- landing our LARGEST OF THE YEAR. It pushed our boat scale past its 50lb limit. When we arrived at the dock we put it on the official scale- a 50.06lb BEHEMOTH! Congrats Joe and nice Viking hat. You are our new leader on the MOO COWNTER.

Night Striped Bass

Captain Carl reports solid bass fishing on the Viking StarShip. We started off jigging, but it was right at the very end off the ebb and through slack water, so it was very unproductive except for a few blues.Once the flood tide began , we had a few more blues until dark. After we switched over to eels it was Game ON! The rest of the night saw steady fish with multiple bass every drift. The quality of bass was Excellent! Most fish between 18-25lb class, and anglers fought the fish Very well. Scott Goldman won the pool  wih a 30.2lb beauty! Phil Andriola from Garden City, NY took second place with a 28.3 pounder.What an exciting night of fishing.

Quality fish were caught, most in the 4-5lbs range, with a couple bigger ones. Sea bass made a very good appearance as well mixed in with the fluke and we had some scup and bluefish also.
