Block Island Behemoth
Capt Ant reports another very good trip to Behemothland. We had extremely difficult drifting conditions and while we didn’t catch our first fish until 4 hours into the trip, the bite finally turned on and delivered many moo cows and one Behemoth at 40.9lbs caught by Justin Alicea from Sleepy Hollow. Christos aka Fester took second with a 39lber and father in law Angelo D added a 31. The King of the night was Jose Splash Ruiz with 4 keepers to 35lbs. I guess that makes Paul Ryan the Queen with 3 to 36lbs. Each retained their limit. Don Mitchell was able to nail a high 30’s Moo Cow even with a bad wrist. Looking forward to Midnight Madness as timing should be perfect for the feeding frenzy.
Half Day Fluke PM First & Second Place went to Mr Steve Pelosa from Howard Beach, NY with a 5.2lb fluke and a 4.5lbs Sea Bass
