Rusty Belly Blackfish/Sea Bass Viking Star
Captain Steven Sr reports a decent trip to the blackfish grounds aboard the Viking Star. Blackfishing started off okay, but then slowed down when the tide changed. We had some action and managed some shorts and keepers. It slowed up a bit and we ended up with about 90 blackfish. Then we made a quick drop for some cod and sea bass and got a nice mess of sea bass and some keeper cod. Billy Longnecker of Southampton took first and second place with an 8.6lb blackfish and a 4.8lb sea bass. And Ron cohen of Center Moriches took third place with a 14lb cod.
