Long Range Night Striped Bass
Capt Carl reports a solid night of bass fishing on the Viking Starship! We had to wait a while for them to bite… The outgoing tide still hasn’t produced much for us, but as the flood tide got going, the cows started chewing. We picked away at fish mixed size but the majority in the XL size class. Brandon Bellairs from Levitown, NY took the pool with a 39 lb beautiful Striped Bass.
Half Day Fluke PM
Captain Joey D reports a very good afternoon of fishing with perfect weather aboard the Viking Star. We had nice big fishing coming up today- nice fluke, porgies and sea bass. Today’s first place pool winner was Bill Farley of Westbury with a nice 7.2lb and in second place was 14 year old Peter Bisulea Sayville with a 6.2lb fluke.
