Night Striped Bass
Capt. Ant reports a slow start to last nights trip but once we got the tide we had a BEHEMOTH BLAST for the last 2 and a half hours.  Overall the trip was fantastic with many of our regular guests catching multiple Moo Cows.  Practice makes perfect and these guys just know the way these big boys bite.  Chad the Shad had  4 to 35lbs,  George “new book our soon” Jehn had 4 to 37lbs and Gary “Big Fish” Young had 4 to 38lbs.  All retained their limit.  Joe Pagillo limited to 30, Dan Bender and Ivan Grvic each had 32lbers.  Scott Goldman had his limit as well but he landed a Behemoth at 40lbs .  Jimmy “Keepon Reeling” Thieling from Deer Park had his largest ever at 41.3lbs and that Behemoth took 2nd Place.   Scott Jablon came all the way from Lake Ariel PA to hunt rock slobs and he found one that paid off.  A 42.7lb Behemoth was left standing n the balance scale.
The Bass crew cannot wait to get back out tonight for two Basstastic opportunities tonight.  We have our 6p trip and a trip that departs at 1215a on Sunday morning.  And on Sunday we have a 530p-10p Sunset slam that will use eels this week and yet another Midnight madness departing Sunday night at 11p.

Full Day Fluke and Sea Bass
Captain Carl reports a good solid day fishing on the full day boat. Despite some nasty conditions, we were able to pick away all day at quality fluke and sea bass and put together a great catch by the end of the day. All quality flukes and some jumbo sea bass, more than we have been seeing. Anthony Caputo had 3 fat fluke and a limit of jumbo sea bass. “Screaming Reel” Dave had 3 fluke including a 7.1 and a 6.9 pounder and some sea bass. Half Day Man had his limit of fluke and it was great to watch. He caught one fluke over 9lbs, then dropped back down and immediately caught one over 8lbs! He ended up winning the fluke pool with a 9lb 6ozoz fatty flatty! Bobby Lambertson took the sea bass pool with a 4.3lb JUMBO- just edging out a 4.2lbs!

Half Day Fluke AM
Captain Ant reports an Outstanding morning of Montauk mixed bag although the jumbo black sea bass were the star of the show. Even in dirty water they chewed their heads off.

We had some porgies and sea bass up to 4.5lbs. Today’s first place pool winner was Gerardo of Central Islip with a 3.75lb porgy and in second place was Tony Cho of Brooklyn with 4.5lb sea bass.
