24 Hour Tile
Capt Steven Jr reports that they ended up with a good trip with a mix of deep water species. Although the tile didn’t bite as well as we were hoping, we had a good amount of wreck fish, barrel fish and hake to make up the action. We started off hitting some wrecks and found some good action for the first half of the day. Around mid day to early afternoon, we tried the tile grounds but were plagued with zero drift, making it impossible to cover any ground. At the end of the day we hit another wreck and and had another little shot of wreck fish and the pool winning tile. Alan Maleh of Brooklyn took the Tile Pool with a nice 25lb tile, and Jim Fee of Falmouth, MA took the largest edible pool with a 21lb wreckfish. Also, Tyler Quaresimo of the Miss Montauk came out for a ride and ended up with 3 tiles up to 25lbs, 4 wreckfish to 18lbs and a couple hake- not bad for a fluke guy!
Although we didn’t have many tiles, we did have a handful of better sized fish in the mid to upper teens. This was our first trip to the deep this year and we are looking forward to getting back out. Keep an eye on our reports and schedule. If the weather allows, we will be doing another trip soon.
