Monday June 30

Sunset Striper Slam Capt Ant reports the Light was alive with life last night with once again producing massive Porgys on the jig, blues and Doug Seay’s pool winning Striper! ¬†We had an hour if no tide but that didn’t stop the scup. Super Mate Steve Ho filleted 3 bushels of scup, you couldn’t keep them off the hook. At the start if the tide we caught some blues to 8lbs and unfortunately once we had a fast enough drift it was dark. Still a great night and bags of fillets for every customer. Half Day Fluke PM Captain Ant reports a good afternoon of fluking. In the start we had some nice fluke coming over the rails, but then the tide changed and it was wind against tide and fishing slowed just a bit. We still had a great…

Mon May 5- 14th Annual Freeport Tuna Club Charter

Captain Steven Sr’s report from the 14th Annual Freeport Tuna Club 2 Day Fishing & Eating & Drinking Charter: Day one started out with a bit of a swell and a 35 man tangle- the largest ever witnessed by the Capt and crew! After getting the cobwebs out, it was a steady pick for much of the day with mostly small to medium goldens and quite a few blue lines as well. We’d have a good drift, attempt to do it again and the boat would drift a different direction. It seemed every 1st drop at a spot was the best. Overall, Day 1 produced about an average of 4 tile per person, with a mess of sexy hake, some cod, pollack, ling, a barrel and a beautiful tropical streamer bass caught by the powerful Chris Bellanzoni Jr. Bobby Hindeland…

38 Hour Tile/Hake Captain Steven Jr an overall good tile trip over the weekend! We had a slow start with some tough drifting conditions and very few fish coming up. But by mid morning the conditions improved and the tiles starting popping up. We had steady fishing for the remainder of the day with mostly tiles coming over the rail. On the last few drifts we did find some hake, pollack and around a dozen nice sized barrel fish. At the end of the day, everyone ended up with some fresh fish just in time for Easter dinner! Jose Ruiz was one of the high hook guys, with 7 tiles with a mess of hake and a barrel fish. Tommy Alexopolous of Bellerose, NY was also a high hook taking the edible pool with a nice 25lb barrel fish- he…

38 Hour Tile Express Capt Steven Jr reports a good trip out for our 38 hr trip aboard the Viking Star. We worked the canyon edges all day catching all sorts of creatures from the deep. In total we had 17 different species of fish landed including plenty of golden tiles, cod, pollack, hake, cusk, haddock, a few grey tiles, barrelfish, northern grouper, plus much more! It was very exciting dropping down to the bottom and never knowing what you would catch! Even Capt Anthony pulled up a very rare for this area 7 pound Glass-Eye Snapper! Tyler Quarismo had 7 golden tiles plus some other different species, and Bobby Kruger jigged up some nice golden tiles and other species! Everyone had a nice mess of deep water fish filets to take home, and some anglers who have never caught…
