Full Moon Night Striped Bass
Capt Ant has just one thing to say, GET IT WHILE THE GETTIN IS GREAT!!!
41 fares, 77 Striped beauties. It was an unbelievable night. The moon lit up the sky, the moo cow linesiders lit up the bottom machine and at the end if the night the anglers lit up victory cigars! Every drift produced 5-10 bass with only a few blues in the mix. It wasn’t easy, you really had to let them eat and that’s tough in a 4 knot tide, but those who got it down were rewarded.
George Jehn, author of Flying to close to the Sun, available on amazon, was high hook with 7. Chris Luke a close second with 6, Danny Wes with 5. Frank the Greaser Stoutenberg nailed 3 in the last hour alone. All retaining their 2 fish limit.
Great Job by Capt Eric and mate Jesse James ferguson who was deadly with the hook.
Most fish were in the 20lb class with a few brutes in the 30s.
Pool winners were:Brett Balascio from White Plains NY with a 34lbs Second place was Anthony Venezia from Brooklyn, NY with a 31lbs
We are sailing at 7p, please make reservations as a few anglers were shut out last night due to just popping by Most Fish
Block Island Porgies and Sea Bass
Captain Dave reports a bit of a tough day fishing today. The porgy bite was way off compared to what it has been, and a bit on the smaller side, but we did manage to get a few nice ones. We also had some sea bass, mostly on the smaller side, but again we were able to manage a few really nice fish. Today’s first place pool winner was Walt William from Mount Holly NJ with a nice 4lb porgy and in second place was Zoran Milosevic of Middle Village with a HUGE 6lb sea bass.
