Block Island Bottom Cod/Sea Bass/Blackfish – Viking Fivestar
Capt Steven Jr. reports that we had another good day of fishing on our Block Island bottom trip. Seabassing remains very strong with lots of quality fish coming up. We managed a handful of cod along with some scup in the mix. The black fishing was nothing better then it has been locally with only a couple big fish coming up and a couple shorts. The water is still warm in the tog areas and we are still seeing the small scup and seabass in there as well. Hopefully the togging improves soon but everyone still went home with a good pile of fish.
Block Island Cod and Sea Bass – Limited Passenger
Capt Steven Sr. reports a decent day of fishing on the Viking Star. There were lots of dog fish this morning with a couple of sea bass mixed in. We moved and found a spot with a steady sea bass bite and less dog fish. Sea bass limits were caught and some walked away with as many as five cod in their coolers. Today’s pool winners were Noel Miranda of Astoria, NY with a 11.2lb cod and Peter Seabrooke of Kings Park, NY with a 5.7lb sea bass.
Block Island Fall Jumbo Porgies and Knothead Sea Bass
Capt Dave reports an overall good day of fishing on the Viking Starship. The dog fish presented a problem but we fished through it.

Today’s first place pool winner was Cornell Armstrong of Teaneck, NJ with a 3lb porgy. The second place pool winner was Freddy Bonilla of Brentwood, NY with a 10lb cod fish.
