Half Day Fluke AM
One of Viking Fleet’s favorite regulars Angelo Demetroulakos won the pool yesterday!
Block Island Behemoth
Capt. Ant reports an excellent Bass trip last night overall.  We started the night out at the local grounds and had a fantastic start.  26 keepers in 6 drifts to 35lbs.  We then moved to the Behemoth grounds and for the first time this year were denied.  Still a bit of a heave on to the east and that might have effected the bite.  They certainly were there, in fact more piles of bass than I’ve seen in a few weeks.  Just no bite.  We’d pass through a school and catch 1 when every rod should have been doubled over.  We picked a few more over the night to round out the catch.  Frank Guinesss Stoutenberg was high hook with 4 (orl).  Scott Goldman had three to 25lbs.  George Jehn had one but hacked another 4 bites due to equipment failure (his eyesight).  Frank Enbenes from Lindenhurst to the pool with the 35.8lber. John Han took second with a 26lber.
We are sailing at 6p tonight and again at midnight (1215am) for the Midnight Madness

Half Day Fluke
This afternoon started slow.. We had no tide for about the first hour. We had some movement and we started catching some nice sea bass. Then we made a move to a fluke spot and landed on a pile of fluke! Plenty of shorts with a nice mix of keepers. Today’s pool winner was Matthew French of Garden City with a 4lb fluke.

Montauk Local Porgies and Sea Bass
Captain Dave reports a good day of fishing today. We had a really nice shot of big porgies along with plenty of jumbo sea bass. We also had some blues and 1 keeper striped bass in the mix. Today’s pool winner was Walter Briggins of Queens with a nice 4lb porgy.
