Night Striped Bass Jig & Eel Combo  Capt. Ant reports very solid to excellent Bassing on the two trips last night.  We had quantity and quality and the Behemothland came alive again…add another 40lber to the list!!!!!  6p Local Bass Express – Action was non-stop on every drift once we got tide.  It was steady,1-3 a drift with a decent number of blues in the mix as well.  Although we had a number of first timers, they mastered the process pretty quickly and we were able to maximize the catch.  Check out the video on Facebook….it certainly tells the story.  Rodrigo Silva took the pool with a 36lb Moocow and Brendan Johnson came in second with his own 30lb Moo. Full Day Fluke and Sea Bass Captain Carl reports a decent day on the full day fluke boat. We picked…

Half Day Fluke AM One of Viking Fleet’s favorite regulars Angelo Demetroulakos won the pool yesterday! Block Island Behemoth Capt. Ant reports an excellent Bass trip last night overall.  We started the night out at the local grounds and had a fantastic start.  26 keepers in 6 drifts to 35lbs.  We then moved to the Behemoth grounds and for the first time this year were denied.  Still a bit of a heave on to the east and that might have effected the bite.  They certainly were there, in fact more piles of bass than I’ve seen in a few weeks.  Just no bite.  We’d pass through a school and catch 1 when every rod should have been doubled over.  We picked a few more over the night to round out the catch.  Frank Guinesss Stoutenberg was high hook with 4…

Jig &Eel Combo Capt. Ant reports a fantastic night locally considering the conditions.  We had a stiff northwest wind against a screaming flood tide, add to it the swell of Cristobal and drifting squarely was a challenge to say the least.  Even with that they finally bit after a month hibernation. The sizes were mixed as we had a couple throwbacks up to a 42lb rock slob.  Average was about 20bs.  Bluefish were a bit of a nuisance at the start but once the tide got roaring it was 99% Moo Cow Linesiders and 3-4 a drift up until we left.  John Bye from Wantaugh took the pool with the 42lber and Mike Scarzelli took 2nd with a 36lber. Half Day Fluke AM Captain Ant reports an excellent morning trip with quality fluke and jumbo sea bass and biscuits in…

Friday August 22

Block Island Behemoth Capt Ant reports another very good trip to Behemothland.  We had extremely difficult drifting conditions and while we didn’t catch our first fish until 4 hours into the trip, the bite finally turned on and delivered many moo cows and one Behemoth at 40.9lbs caught by Justin Alicea from Sleepy Hollow.  Christos aka Fester took second with a 39lber and father in law Angelo D added a 31.  The King of the night was Jose Splash Ruiz with 4 keepers to 35lbs.  I guess that makes Paul Ryan the Queen with 3 to 36lbs.  Each retained their limit.  Don Mitchell was able to nail a high 30’s Moo Cow even with a bad wrist.   Looking forward to Midnight Madness as timing should be perfect for the feeding frenzy.
