Capt. Dave reports an excellent morning filled with wonderful Porgies. We caught tons of medium, large, and jumbo Porgies over by the Lighthouse today. We had extra time once everyone got their limit, so we decided to go offshore to fish for Seabass. It took a couple tries to find the Seabass today, but everyone ended the trip with a handful of them. In today’s mix we had some Mackerel, as well as some beautifully size Fluke. The pool winner was Kevin Haughton from Valley Stream, NY with a 2.75 lb Porgy. In addition, the edible pool winner went to Oswaldo Ventura from NYC, who brought in a delicious 3.75 lb Seabass.
