Monday May 12- Third Annual New London Express

3rd Annual New London Express

Capt. Steven Sr reports a good trip despite the weather. We had steady 20-25 mph winds, but the fish didn’t mind! They were biting all day with drifts as good as 15-18 fish with some double headers. We had a good mix of fish- tilefish, cod, hake, pollack- all nice quality fish in the 12-18lb class. It was a great group of guys and they worked like a team the entire day! Matt Wolak, 14 years old, gave all the older guys a run for their money taking the pool with the 2 biggest fish on the boat with a 24lb and 23lb tilefish. His Father, Matt Wolak Sr, had multiple double headers- what a great Father & Son team! The first place edible pool winner was Joe Decmastro “Joe Dirt” of Rocky Hill with a 65lb tuna! Honorable mentions go to Brian Wright and Sean Elumba of Stanford, CT who teamed up with a mixed bag of good sized pollack and 15+ tilefish up to 15lbs.
Rich Anderson Sr fished with his Son, Capt. Rich, and his grandson, Howie, who were up from Maryland. Together, they had enough tile to redo the bathroom!
