Night Striped Bass
Captain Carl reports absolutely phenomenal fishing on the Viking Starship tonight! Every single person fought and landed a moo cow tonight under the Montauk Lighthouse! We had many drifts with 8 on, 9 on, just absolute mayhem! We ended up limiting out again with all big fish and released some as well to fight another day! 30 pounders were the normal size, with the average weight class of 25-35 pounders! Montauk NY Local Barney Breslin found himself a real behemoth bass in the mix, winning the pool with a giant 47lb 8oz bass!
