Sunday Sept 1

Sunday Striper Special
To top of our weekend, our new Sunday 5-10 eel trip was a dud.  For the first time this year we went fishless.  We hit every spot under the sun, not even a blue fish.  We did have a few bites, seemed like bass bites as eels came up in one piece, but the way it’s been lately, those chances needed to be maximized but weren’t.  It seems the new moon brought on a day bite again so hopefully as we get on the other side the stronger night tides will get them back on the feed.  Its 9/2, history doesn’t lie, the fall run is close and soon the lull will be over.

Full Day Porgies and Sea Bass
Capt Dave reports yet another good day out porgy fishing. Once again we had nice quality sized porgies today.Pool winner Fabian Vargas with a 3lb.

Half Day Fluke PM
Another banner half day trip this afternoon! Fluke fishing is red hot at the moment and this afternoon was no different. We had tons and tons of action, everyone going home with some fish and the some really nice sized fluke to 7lbs. We had a few sea bass and porgies in the mix as well!

Half Day Fluke AM
Capt Anthony reports a once again great day of fluke fishing. Even with the weather not being ideal we put together an excellent catch. The first place in the pool was Jordan Durfee from Southbury CT with a 5.5lbs fluke. Second place was Walter Schreyer from Amagansett NY with a 5lber.

Flood Chaser Moo Cow Madness
Capt Ant reports our final Midnight Moo Cow Madness was disappointing.  We got out to block just in time for the slack and then spent the next 2 hours watching an electrical storm that was about 3 miles north of us.  Well Bass and lightening rarely mix at night, I’ve seen them bite through it in the daylight but when the sky is lit up at night, I’ve personally seen it shut it down instantly.  We didn’t get a touch but they were there so we just kept fishing.  At about 5am at first light we drifted through a pile and all of a sudden game on.  A nice long drift produced 7 Bass and about 10 blues.  We  ran back up and went through them again, nothing but blues.  Frustrating…a 30 minute bite at sun up then nada with the exception of Doug Seay jigging up a 28 incher.
