Sunday 31st August
Sunset Striper Slam
Capt Ant reports a great night considering the electrical storms surrounding us. We picked at scup and sea bass on the jig and switched to eels when the tide turned. We had a great first drift 1 keeper bass and about 30 blues and a 6lb fluke. Then lightening to the north seemed to shut things down a bit. No more bass and a pick of whoppa choppas!! No sun seen so that was a downer but a great crowd who fished hard made for a wonderful evening. Pool was won by Ethan Abraham with a 22.5lb Striper and second to Christopher Lagana with a 12lb gorilla blue
Half Day Fluke PM
Captain Carl reports an excellent afternoon on the half day boat! Flukes, sea bass, scup and even a bunch of bluefish bent the rods all afternoon with plenty of keepers in the pails! This afternoons first place pool winner was Andrew Hirsh of Manhattan with a 3.2lb fluke and in second place was Steven Hood of Huntington with a 2.9lb sea bass.
Half Day Fluke AM
Captain Carl reports an okay morning on the half day boat. We picked away at fluke, sea bass and porgies but the wind and tide together made for a fast drift.
Montauk Local Porgies and Sea Bass
Captain Dave reports a good day of porgy fishing today. We stayed close to home today and were able to pick away all day at some very nice porgies. They were all BIG! We had plenty of porgies today, with just a few sea bass in the mix. Today’s first place pool winner was Shin Dong with a 4lb porgy and in second place was Kelfe Hernand of NY with a 7lb bluefish.
Moo Cow Midnight Madness
MIDNIGHT MADNESS- One word for the first 5 hours…UGGGHHH!!!! We broke off a couple early and dealt with wind against tide for much of the night. Someone flicked the switch at around 5a. 2 on 2 in, 2 on 2 in, 10 on 10 in, then 2 then 1. 17 Bass from Behemothland in an hour. It was pretty sick. What was sicker was that they were all high 20’s to low 40’s including pool winner Stephen Doherty from Brooklyn. Stephen did a fantastic job taking his time smoothly reeling in his beast that tipped the scale at 41.7lbs. Tony Trinceri from Lindenhurst also did a great job in landing his 36lber. If there was ever proof that they bite when they want to it was this trip. Thank God!!!:)
