Night Striped Bass Fishing
Captain Carl reports an EXCELLENT night of striped bass fishing on the Viking Starship! We started off fishing with jigs pre sun down and it was RED HOT fishing! Bass and blues were coming up all over the boat but it was mainly bass. We released quite a few shorts and boated a lot of keepers with some anglers limiting out the the first two drifts! The action stayed hot and heavy until the sun went down and it got dark. So, we switched over to the Live Eels and went in search of trophy bass....and found them too! The eels produced quite a few bass, all quality size from 15lbs up to 37! Many folks limited out and it was a great night of fishing. The winner of the pool was Jerry Giambanco from Manorville, NY who caught a 37lbs Striper.

Frank Guiness Stountenberg had his limit to 38lbs and Marty Wellen Dowd caught his first keeper of the year that weighed in at 31lbs. We had 6 other fish that topped 30lbs.We'll be doing another Deep Dark Special Monday at Midnight.
