Thurs Aug 22 -Montauk Jumbo Lighthouse Porgies and Knothead Sea Bass
Captain Dave reports a fine day of fishing after a rough start today on the Viking Stariper. A combination of wind and tide and a little leftover swell from last night made for some tough conditions near the Montauk Lighthouse early this morning. We moved to drift along the beach and found a load of really nice large to Jumbo Porgies. Later on we moved again to the East to load up on some excellent Sea Bass. We had to pick through a mix of shorts and some additional Porgies, but wound up with a number of Sea Bass in the the 5 pound range. All our anglers went home with plenty of fish. The pool winner today was Chris Battaglia of Brooklyn with a 3.0 pound Scup.
