Blackfish FIshingCaptain Henry Feeney joins Andy and Rich for the final outing of the season. The guys travel out of Sheepshead Bay, NY to 17 Fathoms to fish in over 100ft of water for some of the biggest blackfish ever seen on camera including a 14lb monster and several 8-10lb fish. The bite never stops and only the rough seas force them to call it a day.

Blackfish (Tautog) are a highly sought after species in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.  Though there is a spring season in some locations, many anglers do not target these fish at those times because the fish are typically spawning.

Many baits are effective for deep water blackfish including white crabs, green crabs, large Asian crabs, and hermit crabs.
