Sun Nov 13 – Blackfish & Sea Bass
Capt JR reports a good day of fishing today on the Viking Star despite the windy conditions. We headed out this morning and found some uncomfortable conditions with wind, rain, and a rather large leftover ground swell from yesterday’s weather. We looked around for some SeaBass that wanted to bite and found just a few early. Fortunately, we hit one drop that was loaded with hungry knot head SeaBass and quickly got a boat limit. The Blackfish grounds started off promising with some very nice keepers coming up right away but the bite kinda dwindled to a pick. However, there was a surprising number of large SeaBass that have seemed to repopulate the inshore Blackfish grounds. The Black fish pool winner went to Anastasios Sopiling from Jamaica, NY with a 5.6 lb fish. We had a tie for our SeaBass pool winner both Jin Min Zhan from Flushing and Jamer Zaeger from Levittown with jumbo 5 1/2 lb fish. Out next Blackfish trip on the Star will be Wednesday, November 16th at 5am.
