April 17th-38 Hour Tile/Hake/Wreck Express

Capt Steven Sr. reports an excellent start to our 2015 Offshore Fishing Season! After losing a bunch of trips because of weather, we were very excited to get out there! We were welcomed with perfect conditions, and hungry fish from the deep waters! All day long we caught a good, steady pick of Golden Tilefish, mostly in the medium to large range class, and also had a mix of Pollack, Cod, Hake, Barrelfish, a few Blue Line Tilefish, Cusk, and even a few Rosies! We did have some dogfish in the mix also, but they weren’t too bad. By day’s end, some guys had a limit of golden tiles, and a mess of other deep water dwellers to bring home, and others had a couple tile and other species. Everyone on board went home with Golden Tilefish and more! Capt Carl, Capt Davey, and Capt Steve D cut fish for over 4 hours on the way home! It was a great trip once again, and we want to thank everyone who joined us! Joseph “Pennsylvania Joe” Gornik who has been fishing with the Viking Fleet for over 30 years offshore, and has won second prize in the pool a few times, finally took top honors with the largest Tilefish of the trip at 36 lbs! Way to go Joe! Sang Yoon was able to sneak away with the edible pool with a 22 lb Barrelfish… Just barely edging out a couple other 20+lb barrels!
