Wed Nov 30 – Block Island Jumbo Porgies & Knothead Sea Bass
Capt Dave reports an excellent day of fishing today on the Viking Star. Despite the rainy conditions today we sailed with a light crowd and had ourselves some excellent fishing. We had a mix of sizes, from just keeper Porgies and SeaBass to jumbo sized and everywhere in between.
We had some nice sized SeaBass up to 5 lbs on the boat along with at 10 Cod fish, even with the small number of people. We did also find some Mackerell still around and only a few dog fish biting, Overall a really great day of fishing. The Porgy pool winner went to Tony Kim from Queens, NY with a 3.9 lb Porgy. Unfortunately, our 5am Block Island Porgy and SeaBass trip tomorrow (Thursday, December 1st) is cancelled along with our Coxes Ledge Cod and SeaBass trip due to poor weather conditions, but we look forward to sailing again on Friday, December 2nd for both the Block Island Porgies and SeaBass as well as the Blackfish and SeaBass trip.
