Rusty Belly – Viking Fivestar
Capt Steven Jr reports that we sailed with light crowd and put together a decent catch today on the Viking Fivestar. The black fishing had slower action then we saw on our last trip. But by mid day everyone had their limit of black fish with a couple fish around 8 lbs. Then we shot offshore to go sea bassing the bite was slower than it has been. We checked a lot of spots and only found a few fish here and there. We had a big ground swell from the east which seemed to effect the fishing.
Block Island Jumbo Porgies and Knothead Sea Bass
Capt Dave reports a very difficult day of porgy fishing today. When we had a lot of action the porgies were just keeper size, but when we got into the larger sized fish we encountered large dogfish making it very tough out there. We had about 1/2 dozen keeper cod as well. The first place pool winner was Liu Rongjun from Flushing, NY with a 2.5 lb porgy.
