South Shore Porgies are in Brooklyn

Sep 25, 2016
Brooklyn, NY
Boat Name
70 foot

When we shoved off and made out first stop, we were surrounded by birds working through a blue fish feeding frenzie. Pelican stopped in front of them, south and east of the breezy point rocks and he parks himself, most annoyingly, right in front of me in the bow and starts to throw a small jig on a spinning rod, hunting not for blue fish but for progies. And he found them, huge ones, like our night time vapire fish, all 17 inches and up. I was using clam that I brought from Stellar Maris bait shop, and the boat was fishing shrimp. But I was really struggling to fish around Pelican who was now jigging and pulling in about a dozen whoppers.
