Capt. Dave reports a good trip where we started off in deep waters a little East. We were between Montauk and Block Island where we had a slow steady pick of medium to large Porgies and some small Seabass. There were a few nice size Seabass in the mix. The pool winner was Rolando Correa with a 2.1 lb Porgy. The edible pool winner was David Park from Flushing, NY, with a 3.5 lb Seabass.
Capt Dave reports a good day on the Viking Starship. We started out with windy conditions, so we anchored and had really good action with mostly medium to large Porgies and smaller SeaBass. When it got nicer we started drifting to the east and found a better sized Porgies and SeaBass. The drift was a bit fast from the wind, but there were better quality fish. The pool winner was Erik Flores from Amityville, NY with a 2.2 lb Porgy.
Another three species day, but a long one The day started out with an Atlantic gray seal (Halichoerus grypus atlantica)feeding in the waters of Montauk Harbor right behind the Starship as we boarded passengers. Conditions were excellent as we headed out to the east where humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) had been spotted earlier in the day….
Capt Dave reports another good day on the Viking Starship. We started out the same as yesterday anchored at a rock pile with a nice mix of SeaBass with Porgies mixed in. We then went off to the east by Block Island drifting. It was a mix of medium to large Porgies and SeaBass up to 4 lbs. There was plenty to go around for everyone. The pool winner was Harold Rogers from NYC with a 2 lb Porgy.
Capt JR reports that this morning’s trip saw a good pick of Sea Bass and Porgies. It started off very well but as the tide eased off the catch slowed to a steady pick. A few anglers also boated some keeper Fluke. The pool winner was Joseph from Pennsylvania with a 3 lb Fluke.
