Viking Fishing Fleet

July 16, 2018:
Aboard the Viking Starship, the porgy and sea bass trips with Captain Dave have seen excellent porgy fishing with non-stop action of mixed size porgies. The boat has been fishing the wrecks for sea bass after limiting out on porgies. Fares are culling through plenty of shorts to manage a nice catch of keeper sea bass. Everyone has been reaching their limits fishing the offshore wrecks. The half day trips aboard the Viking Star with Capt. Joe and Capt. Frank reports mixed results depending on the day. Fluke, porgies and sea bass are all responding very well to bucktails, rigs and diamond jigs, depending what's on the menu. Many days see fares do a good job on fluke, while scup and sea bass often bail a trip out with plenty of action and some nice bags of fillets going home for dinner.

    The Viking Fleet, continues to enjoy good fishing in general. Aboard the Viking Starship, Capt. Dave reports very good to excellent porgy and sea bass fishing this week. In front of the Lighthouse has been good when conditions permit, while the sea bass have been further offshore. The half day trips aboard the Viking Star with Capt. Joe has been decent to excellent depending on the tide. Fluke, scup and sea bass have all been responsive on any given day and tide, with fluke between 5 and 8 pounds often copping the pool. Thursday evening's bass trip with Capt. Steven Jr enjoyed excellent fishing. It was a slow start, but when the tide got going Capt. Steven found a pile of hungry fish, picking a couple on each drift and ended up with the boat limit by the end of the night. The pool winner was a 42 pound bass. Friday night's bass trip experienced very tough conditions with a stiff north wind against the flood tide creating very tough drifting conditions. Some nice bass were taken despite the horrendous condition. On Saturday's evening trip, Capt. Steven Jr reports a decent night after a slow start aboard the Viking Starship waiting for the tide to get moving.  When the tide started anglers were able to pick away at a few bass for the remainder of the evening. The first place pool winner was a 35 pound striped bass.

    All aboard on the Viking Fleet, Capt. Dave reports porgy and sea bass fishing has been excellent on the Viking Starship, with really great fishing at the lighthouse. Dave has been heading east to find the sea bass. The half day trips aboard the Viking Star has been up and down this week due to conditions. All of the usual suspects including fluke, porgies and sea bass are providing fair to very good action as most fares go home with dinner. The Captain Steven's Captains Choice was a good one returning on Friday with tile, hake, cod, cusk, halibut, fluke and sea bass. Biggest tile went to Peter Chiu with a 51-pounder. Loads of big ground fish ruled the entire trip. Friday night's striped bass trip with Capt. Carl at the helm was happy to report a ballistic bite of moo cow bass on the Viking Star. It started off a little slow, but the big giant trophy striped bass started biting their heads off with all quality fish between 25 and 40 pounds with 3 over 40 pounds. Everyone caught their limit and went home with fish and memories to last a lifetime! Jack Hammel from Larchmont, NY took the pool with a 41.3-pound beauty.

    Aboard the Viking Fleet, Capt. Dave reports the scup fishing aboard the Viking Star this week has ranged from very good to fantastic. It's good ole Mother Nature that decides the conditions which dictates the fishing. The half day fluke trips aboard the Viking Starship has been good on occasion, however it has been quite slow on most trips with the captains switching off to porgies to save the day as fare catch enough for a dinner or two. Saturday's sea bass debut caught a lot of small fish, but everyone went home with a couple along with a fine catch of scup. .  Saturday evening's striper trip aboard the Viking Star with Capt. Carl at the helm saw plenty of action. It was an earlier trip so anglers diamond jigged most of the evening for plenty of bass with a couple keepers coming on board. Blues, sea bass and lots of giant scup also made it aboard. Some evil east wind on the trip made conditions difficult. The pool was won by a 14-pound striper caught by Louis Gardell of New York.
