Night Striped Bass
Capt Carl reports a decent night of fishing on the Viking Starship. We arrived on the grounds at the right time and picked up some real big Striped Bass for a couple of drifts, with the first fish boated over 35 lbs and caught by a 10 year old. As soon as the tide eased off just a little, the big ones shut down, so we moved to a different spot and picked away at some smaller keepers. The second half of the trip was through slack tide and then the outgoing tide and we didn’t have another bite. Jimmy Budrock from Yonkers, NY took the pool with an impressive 44 pound Striped Bass (it was 48 lbs as soon as he landed it, but the official dock weight was 44), and Nicole Cook from Islip, NY took second with a 37 pounder!
