Capt. Al

June 30, 2015:
Aboard the Capt. Al in Point Lookout Capt. Tom Weiss told me ling action is going full blast with fish to 4-pounds and some fares able to haul in two buckets each. Earlier in the week porgy action was decent but then the out of season sea bass took over the pieces and shoved the scup aside. A few cod were taken on every trip and some flatties were found along the inshore pieces. In spite of rough conditions on Sunday the 120-ft. ranges produced a good catch of ling. The boat sails daily at 7 a.m. The night time can be the right time and Capt. J.R. is running evening trips for porgies on Wednesday to Saturday from 5 to 9 p.m.
