Viking Fishing Fleet

January 22, 2018:
Aboard the Viking Fleet the Viking Star has been able to get off the dock occasionally, finding the action very slow for the most part. However Captain Steve and Carl reports fantastic action once the weather and seas calmed as the winter kings are filling coolers and limits of teen size fish. The boat is ready to roll at 4 a.m. and will continue on the codfish trail on a daily basis for the remainder of the winter. Give them a call to be sure the boat will be sailing.

    The Viking Fleet has lost lots of days due to the extreme winter weather we have been experiencing, but the Viking Star was able to squeeze in a couple of days over the past week. Capt. Carl reported that they were able to get out to the cod grounds last Wednesday, January 10th and Sunday, January 14th. Fishing was very slow both days but Sunday saw a good showing of bait in the area as they spent a lot of time searching for a body of cod. Commercial fishermen have been on the cod so Carl believes it is just a matter of time before they are able to zero in on the fish. For updated sailing schedules, go to

    From the Viking Fleet, Capt Steven Sr. on the Viking Star said the last mixed bag trip of the season on Saturday saw slow fishing with a mix of cod, sea bass and ling. The Block Island Grounds yielded just a handful of fish on the first drop. After that, it was a quiet few hours with a slow pick of cod. The last drift saved the trip by producing a steady pick of all three species. The pool winner was Brandon Hecht with a 12-pound cod. Today's (Wednesday) and tomorrow's cod trips are cancelled due to weather. For further scheduling information, go to
