    Capt. Brad Glas of the Hel-Cat II emailed his report over on Sunday night, "We are still fishing for fluke, sea bass and porgies on a daily basis and the fishing is excellent overall. Of course, it is called "fishing" and sometimes when the wind conditions get in cahoots with the current conditions things become difficult. That is not to say that the fishing is bad then, it is only to state that after we've been spoiled with almost perfect conditions trip after trip there are times when it's not so easy. Still, there are good numbers and good sizes coming over the rails as well as unbelievable numbers of "just short" fish. There is definitely plenty of action all day. Pool fluke have been running between 25 and 27 inches every day, even when we get those annoying trying conditions that make life difficult. As of right now we see no reason to change the schedule or the species we are chasing. All is working well. Boat sails every day at 9 a.m. and returns to the dock between 3 and 4 p.m."

    Capt. Brad Glas of the Hel-Cat II emailed is report over on Sunday night, "Another great week of bottom fishing is in the books. Our trips over to the Montauk rips for fluke, black sea bass and porgies gets more popular with every trip, and why not considering the action that anglers have been enjoying. As before, each trip is a bit different with the numbers shifting from one species to another and sometimes they are all pretty even. Many really impressive fluke over the rails this week on several trips and on others folks limited out on sea bass plus very respectable numbers of porgies. The schedule is basically unchanged and will remain in effect for some time to come. There is one change though, that being this coming Saturday, Aug 6th will be the last of the 4PM to 8PM fluke, sea bass and porgy trips for this season. We have to shut it down because of the time of sunset. After the sun goes down the fluke bite comes to a screeching halt. The day trips continue through every day leaving the dock at 9AM to return between 3 and 4 PM except for Sat the 6th when we have to be in by three to turn around for the 4PM run."

    Capt. Brad Glas of the Hel-Cat II emailed his report over on Sunday night, "It just keeps getting better. The fluking is fantastic as well as the mix of black sea bass and porgies. Only one day this week was a bit hampered due to the direction a strong wind that set the drift on a very trying and annoying angle. Some of the folks who had the experience were still nailing the fluke but the rest were having difficulties. We moved to another area and concentrated on sea bass and porgies. The second location had a different direction of current so even the "Pilgrims" did well. There is no indication of this ending soon and that is a good thing. The Saturday 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. trip is doing well also. Don't miss out on this kind of fishing. Grab you wife or if you're the wife, grab the hubby and the kids and get into the fun of this fishery. Boat sails every day at 9 a.m. and returns to the dock between 3 and 4 p.m., same day. Saturday's we have to be in by 3 to make time to get the mess cleaned up enough to get back out again at 4."

    Capt. Brad Glas of the Hel-Cat II emailed his report over on Sunday night. "Another week of some pretty spectacular fishing behind us. The combination fluke, black sea bass and porgy trips we have been running are catching well every day. So well, and so much enjoyed by the folks who come with us that it will continue for as long as the fishery holds up. The daily trips are showing a pretty consistent almost even mix on the fluke of keepers vs throw backs. The black sea bass and porgies are solid. The Saturday evening trip for fluke, black sea bass and porgies did very well also. Great action on mostly fluke with some black sea bass and porgies mixed-in. Those trips sail at 4 p.m. and return to the dock at 8 p.m. on Saturdays only. Remember, there is a discount if you ride both trips on the same day. The day trips leave promptly at 9AM and are scheduled to return at 3p.m. We have been stretching the return a bit Sunday through Friday (can't do it on Saturday because of the second trip) just because we like to. So, if you are about a great day of relaxing, no pressure, no rat race fishing for three pretty special species come on down. Bring the wife and kids, everyone can enjoy this."
