Block Island Behemoth Night Striped Bass
Captain Carl reports a solid night on the Viking Starship. Block Island Behemoth lived up to the hype again, as we had all quality bass onboard. It started off slow, but as the tide picked up, so did the fishing and we were just a few shy of a boat limit. Chris Luke from Southampton took the pool with a 47lb 5oz behemoth! George Jehn also had a nice 44lb 1oz Moo Cow and we had quite a few other over 35lbs.
Half Day AM
Captain Stephen D reports a good morning aboard the Viking Star. There was no tide at the beginning of the trip, but after about an hour the tide started and the fish started biting. There was a nice catch of fluke, porgies and sea bass. Freddy “Motor” Shea had a 7.5 pounder. Peter Wong from Plainview, NY and Troy Scott from Oceanside, NY tied the pool with 5lb fluke.
