Night Striped Bass

 Capt Ant reports the Behemoth grounds were an absolute Striper paradise last night as the waters were all stirred up from a stronger wind than predicted which definitely turned the feedbag on.  Unfortunately we had to battle the wind against tide otherwise it would have been even more insane.  We averaged a fish a man for the full boat and the size, well it is Behemoth land for a reason.  Two more 40’lbers, about 14 over 30 and plenty of high 20’s were hooked, fought and eventually laid to rest on the deck of the mighty Starship.  Unfortunately the 42 and 40.7lber were not entered in the pool which left the door open for Ponytail Eric Cropper, who took the pool his last trip out with a 50, following it up with a 38.8lber.  Bob Nazaro from Oyster Bay had a 36lber.  Nicole “Dixie” Cook had a 31 and presented it to her boyfriend Joe for his birthday.  Happy Birthday from all of us Joe!
An amazing job on deck by Capt Eric and mate Jonny Jesus of the Elbow as the drift couldn’t have been more horrendous, yet they still managed to get lines fishing and get lines catching!!!
We are so looking forward to Mondays Moon trip at 7p!!!!!
