Sun Aug 30 – Montauk Lighthouse Jumbo Porgies & Knothead Sea Bass
Capt Dave reports an excellent trip on the Viking Starship. We had to do a couple of drops due to windy conditions, but brought aboard plenty of medium to large Porgies. When we went for Sea Bass the results were not as good as they have been. A lot of shorts, but again some nice larger Porgies were in the mix. Anglers brought in some nice keeper Fluke as well. Victor Suera of Brentwood, NY won the first place pool with a 2 3/4 lb Porgy and Wendell Buchanan of Teaneck,NJ won the edible pool with a 6 lb Fluke. NYS Marine Regulations change September 1st. Porgy bag increases from 30 to 50 fish through October 31st and Sea Bass increases to 7 fish until Dec 31st.
