Montauk Jumbo Porgies and Knothead Sea Bass
Captain Dave reports an okay day of fishing today aboard the Viking Starship. We had some unfavorable weather conditions today, but we did manage a decent catch of porgies by the lighthouse. Despite the windy weather and fast drift, we tried for a some sea bass and most people ended up with their limit of nice size fish. We also had some blues in the mix. The first place pool winner was O’Neil Gooden of Queens with a 3.11lb porgy and in second place was George Stanislaus of Brooklyn with a nice 4.4lb sea bass. Starting tomorrow, Sept 1st, the porgy and sea bass regulations will change to 45 porgies at 10 inches and 7 sea bass at 15 inches.
