Deep Deep Hake/Tile Exploratory Trip
Capt Steven Sr. reports that despite “Mother Nature” we pushed on regardless with 20-25mph winds. We were excited to see on the first drift that fish were biting and rods were bending! We worked the area all day with excellent results. We had tile, hake, pollack and barrel fish. Cousin, Don Briand was high hook! On Day 2 the weather subsided and we headed to deep water. It was extremely good with catches of hake and tile. There were at least a dozen hake over 20lbs. The first place Tile pool winner was Paul Ryan from Middletown, NY with a 25.7 lb fish. The first place Hake pool was a tie with Roy Bess from NYC and Paul Ryan! They were 24.1 lbs. The first place Edible pool winner was Sammy Sin from Brooklyn, NY with a 21.3 lb Barrel Fish.
