12/4 ISLAND CURRENT III…50-50 Blackfish Trip…Snug Harbor, RI

Capt. Scott called into report a decent day of tog fishing. The high Quailty caliber of anglers really helped. Some of the sharpest tog fisherman up and down the coast.

Pool fish honors was Artem from team white crab who scoops the pool once again!  Other special limits included Erick A from Greenwich, CT who had 9 keeper ORL, Artem 8 keepers ORL, Mike 9dropper with 7 ORL,

and a few others with limits.

Overall a solid day with good life on most drops.  A special shout out to Team White Crab & Artem for always doing the right thing and taking care of the crew.

12/3 ISLAND CURRENT III…Slightly Better…Snug Harbor, RI

Captain Scott reported that it was a slightly better day than yesterday. More consistent and steady action but still a slow pick at best. Captain Scott ventured off to the east which was by far the best drop of the day.  Working his way back the fishing was scratchy and picky.  Some of the highlights from today’s trip included Eric Anderson from Stamford CT limiting out as well as Kevin from Nassau Long Island and Mike from Brooklyn New York. Pool fish was just shy of 8 pounds.
