Viking FiveStar Block Island Cod, Sea Bass and Blackfish
We had another good day bottom fishing off of block today. We started off inshore looking around for some blackfish but there was still a left over ground swell from the last few day of wind and made things quiet. We dint find much if anything to bite until we got outside of 100 feet of water. When we did things turned around . We again had phenomenal sea bass fishing with mostly quality sized fish sending everyone home with their limit. We also picked up a few cod every drop with the biggest one in the high teens and high hook being 4 keeper cod. There was also plenty of XL porgies to go around and top off the coolers.
Columbus Day Striped Bass Special
Captain Ant reports insane fishing on our Columbus Day Sundown Special. The first half of the trip was bluefish central. Everywhere we went blues blues and more blues. It was very frustrating after the morning trip knowing the bass were still there. However for jigging, the action could not have been better as it was pretty much every cast. Once the tide eased a bit, the bass started biting, and ferociously as the sun dipped lower. From not having a bass on the boat in the first 2 hours, we limited out with ease in the 3rd hour Christopher Cool Hand Luke nailed the pool at 19lbs. Honorable mention to Martin Wellen Dowd who performed at the top of his game yesterday and just missed the pool.
Block Island Porgies and Sea Bass
Captain Steven Sr reports a great day of fishing today. We started out south of BI looking for the bigger fish in the deeper water. We found some really nice porgies and picked away during the morning. Then we made our way and found a lot of really nice sea bass and some cod mixed in. It was all medium to large size nice quality fish. Today’s pool winner was Spooky from New Jersey with a nice 4lb porgy.
Half Day Jigging Bass and Blues
Captain Ant reports a complete annihilation after only three drifts people were limiting out.
