Sat Aug 5 – Montauk Lighthouse Jumbo Porgies & Knothead Sea Bass
Capt Dave reports an excellent day of fishing today on the Viking Starship. First thing this morning we set up for a drift around 5:30am and had a solid 4-hour drift with non-stop Porgy action. It was a mixed size anywhere from medium to jumbo fish, with a lot of larges. Around 10 o’clock we worked our way to the SeaBass grounds and had some solid drops with some decent size fish including a lot of Mackerell and some keeper Fluke. Overall, a very good day of fishing today. The pool winner on the boat today was Jose Martinez from the Bronx with a 2 1/2 lb Porgy. The edible pool winner went to Chester Winfield from Scarsdale, NY with 4 1/2 lb Fluke.
