Mon Oct 14- Block Island Jumbo Porgies and Knothead Sea Bass
Captain Dave reports a mixed day of fishing today aboard the Viking Starship. After getting to Block Island, we decided to stay inshore to avoid the voracious Dogfish that made the Porgy catching difficult yesterday. We had a slow but steady pick of medium to large Porgy. Initially we had to pick through a lot of short Sea Bass, but once the tide turned, the conditions improved. The fishing today required a little more patience than our regular anglers are accustomed to, but by the end of the day we were able to put together a good catch. First place in the pool went to Egbert Bangari of the Bronx, NY with a 3.1 pound Scup. Second place went to Rick Ebanks with a 5.2 pound Sea Bass.
