Wed Oct 18 – Block Island Jumbo Porgies & Knothead Sea Bass
Capt Dave reports an okay day of fishing today on the Viking Starship. The weather today could not be any better for fishing, but unfortunately the fish bite was slow. We found that the fish were biting better on the drifts rather than on anchor so we spent most our day drifting. We had a slow but steady pick of some decent size Porgies through out the day with fish at every drop, no real jumbos, but some pretty nice sized large Porgies. We did also carry a good pick of medium to large SeaBass as well as some Mackerell and 3 keeper Cod fish. The pool winner today went to Jorge Bautista from Queens, NY with a 2 3/4 lb Porgy. The weather tomorrow looks fantastic and we are looking forward to sailing on our Block Island Jumbo Porgies and SeaBass again at 5am, the ticket office will open at 4am for sales.
