Montauk Sunset Striped Bass & Bottom Fishing
Captain Dave reports slow fishing last night on the Viking Starship. We only had a few shorts and no keepers.

Montauk Jumbo Porgies & Sea Bass
Capt Dave reports despite the rough conditions this morning we had an excellent bite at the lighthouse. We then moved toward Block Island and had a good mix of porgies and sea bass. The first place pool winner was Arris from NYC with a 3lb porgy. The second place pool winner was Margartio Cabrera from Brookly, NY with a 5lb sea bass.

1/2 Day Fluke-AM
Capt Liam reports a good start this morning on the Viking Stariper. We had an early bite with nice fluke and sea bass, but then is slowed down. The pool winner was Christos Maniatis with a 5lb fluke.

Whale Watching
Long trip but no whales. We headed out and covered over 50 nautical miles but had no luck finding whales or dolphins. Even the balls of krill near Montauk Point had nothing feeding on them. We will try again next week.
