Fri Aug 26 – Montauk Lighthouse Jumbo Porgies & Knothead Sea Bass
Capt Dave reports a good day of fishing today on the Viking Starship. Started off the morning fishing around the Lighthouse, fishing was good but the tide started ripping so we made our way down the beach where conditions were better. We anchored up off the beach and had a really good pick of large Porgies and a handful of Trigger fish. When the tides eased off we made our way back to the Lighthouse and had some good drifts to collect plenty of Porgies. Did some SeaBassing to the east, fishing has been a bit tough, plenty of action but lots of little SeaBass. We did actually grab some nice Jumbo Porgies to finish off everyone’s limit for the day. The first place poo; winner went to Henson from Long Island, NY with a 3.5 lb Porgy. The edible pool winner went to Mohan Mahederek with a 6 lb Fluke.
