Sun Aug 28 – Montauk Lighthouse Jumbo Porgies & Knothead Sea Bass
Capt Dave reports a slower day of fishing today on the Viking Starship. This morning conditions were great around the Lighthouse and we had a nice hour and a half drift with a steady pick of Porgies, mostly large sized double headers. When the tide changed it became a bit tough so we worked our way down the beach to escape the wind where we found a nice pile of jumbo Trigger fish. The SeaBass bite was very off today which made for very slow fishing and they were all small, with very few keepers. The first place pool winner went to Jia Ming Zhou from Brooklyn with a 3.5 lb jumbo Porgy. The edible pool winner went to Jeffrey from Islip with a 5 lb Trigger fish.
