LongRange Behemoth Bass
Capt Carl reports a great night of Bass fishing on the Viking Starship. The bite was on immediately when we arrived on the grounds with multiple moo cows for multiple drifts of all quality stripers. Once the tide died down, they shut down. Then, on the outgoing tide, fishing remained slow with just a couple more smaller bass, but we already had a great catch aboard! Ross Alber came all the way from Medford, NJ just to fish for the Montauk Moo Cows and took the pool with a 39.9 lb beauty.
Half Day Fluke PM
Captain Joey D reports a very good afternoon of fishing. We had beautiful fluke, nice porgies a couple blues and lots of sea bass. Everyone went home with bags of fish! Today’s pool winner was Lou Kalkines of Lake Grove with a 5.5lb fluke.
Viking FiveStar 24 Hour Tuna
Captain Steven Jr reports an excellent tuna trip this past Tuesday. Although it was a short trip, we stayed a little longer to put in more time and it totally paid off. We had a couple yellows on the green stick early in the day and in the afternoon we had a slammer chunk bite! We were pretty much hand feeding them bait off the back of the boat and ended up putting 18 yellowfins from 45-70lbs in the boat before we called it a trip. We are looking forward to getting back out there to get back on them. Looks like we are in for a good September chunk bite here after a long tough summer season. There are still some spots open on some of the split charter trips and only a few available dates open for private trips. So book now before its too late! Photos to follow!
Montauk Jumbo Porgies & Seabass
Capt Dave reports reports a slower day aboard the Viking Starship. We searched around a bit and found a good pick of smaller porgies and sea bass. The sea bass catch was pretty good as well. The first place pool winner was Mario Felicisimo from the Philippines with a 2.5 lb porgy. The second place pool winner was Miguel Aparicio from Central Islip with a 4 1/2 lb seabass.
1/2 Day Fluke – AM
Capt Joey D reports a little bit of a slow start due to the tides, but ended with a strong finish. We had plenty of fluke brought on board. Joe Litrenta with a 5 lb fluke.
