Back to Viking Fleet Fishing Reports

Sat Aug 31 to Tue Sept 3 – 3 Day TNT – Viking Fivestar

Capt Steven Jr reports another excellent trip offshore over Labor Day weekend! We got our limit of Yellowfin from 30-80lbs, a decent mess of Golden and Grey Tilefish, with Pollock, Hake and Barrelfish mixed in, a handful of Mahi and a beauty Swordfish that weighed in at 220lbs! Day one we managed 7 nice Yellowfin on the troll and didn’t do any bottom fishing due to the unfavorable conditions. That night we picked a few Yellowfin early and then fought the Sword for a good while. As soon as he was on the deck the Yellowfin attacked! From 3am thru sun up we had non stop action on the bait and jigs with fish jumping all around the boat. Mid morning we got back on the troll and picked a couple small Yellows that we released. we then put in an afternoon of bottom fishing. We still didn’t have ideal conditions, but we managed a nice catch. At sundown the guys were worn out and agreed to go in early rather then fish the second night to play catch and release. Over all another great trip with a good group of guys. Congrats to our regular customer Bruce Wahl who did a hell of a job on the rod with the sword!
With hurricane Dorian coming our way later this week we will not be getting back offshore until the beginning of next week. This break will give us some time for our regular maintenance and a trip to Trophy Fishing Tackle / to load up on chunking tackle!
