Block Island Porgies and Sea Bass
Captain Dave reports a slow day of fishing today dur to the rough conditions and moon tide. We did manage a catch of some porgies, sea bass and about 10 keeper cod. Today’s first place pool winner was Ismael Lallave of Manhattan, and in second place was Ignacio Castillo of Queens with a 10lb cod.

3 Day TNT Limited
Captain Carl reports a tough go for our TNT trip. We postponed the trip due to weather and left early Friday morning and fished hard Friday night. It was the slowest night we have had all year, and we released 2 sword pups and Captain Jerry landed the only yellowfin of the night. We watched lots of fish jump out of the water close to the boat but for whatever reason, they didn’t want to bite. We did also catch a bunch of mahi mahi. The next morning we did some bottom fishing and that was slow too. Every drop saw only 1-2 golden tiles and just a few hake mixed in. In between drops, TJ Walshe trolled up a 40lb albacore. We also scored some more mahis. Then the weather unexpectedly turned for the worse and it became pretty snotty and so evil we called it a trip and headed for home. TJ did win the pool with the alby and Juan Carrasquillo took the edible pool with a 15lb mahi. Also Chris Del Pozzo took the tile fish pool with a 12lb tilefish.
