Thurs July 13 – Montauk Lighthouse Jumbo Porgies & Sea Bass
Capt Dave reports a difficult day of fishing today on the Viking Star. Conditions never seemed to be right today with wind fighting against tide. We had a brief moment that we anchored up and fell into better conditions and the fishing was very well, where we got the bulk of our fish for the day. Porgies were medium to large in size, nothing really on the jumbo size. We did try to work our way offshore and look for SeaBass, but only fell into a small pool of fish with very few keepers and some more medium sized Porgies. The first place pool winner today was Arnold Petties from Brooklyn, NY with a 2 3/4 lb Porgy. The edible pool winner today went Anthony DeFransesco with a 4 lb Blue fish. We will be sailing again tomorrow (Friday, July 14th) on our 5 am Montauk Lighthouse Porgies & SeaBass.
