We had a great day of fishing with over 40 bass on jigs and plugs in the ocean.
We did place at #15 with a fish just over 24 pounds caught on a plug in 70 feet of water. The fish were on top and the big yellow Danny plugs worked well but our winning fish was caught on a Gary Soldati Blue plug and was caught by Tom.
The Tournament winner was caught by Billy Connaughton on Ray Bartlet's boat and weighed just over 33 pounds and was caught on a jig in the ocean.
The winner of the Striped Bass Release Photo Contest is Mike Nelson and he will receive a $500 prize donated by Ray Bartlet of the UPS stores in Babylon and Long Beach.
The action is fantastic in the ocean 10 to 15 miles east of Fire Island Inlet.
A great day on the water.
