What We Fish For
|BLACK SEA BASS|
Striped Bass range from the Carolina’s to Maine and are considered New England’s most popular gamefish. Get ready for a good fight because these fish fight hard and stay deep, making long runs before they come to the surface. With thick white fillets, they also make excellent table fare. Most fish average 15lbs, with any fish over 30lbs considered a trophy catch, in fact the world record striped bass was caught in our very own Long Island Sound weighing a whopping 81.88 lbs!
Bluefish are a fisherman’s favorite! These fish travel in packs so the action is often fast and furious. The combination of their razor sharp teeth and vicious attitude make them some of the hardest fighting fish in the ocean. Snappers, Tailors, Harbors, Choppers and Alligators are all used to describe bluefish of various sizes with the smaller variety being preferred for the grill or smoker. They are caught from Florida to Maine with some of the largest of the species right here in Long Island Sound. An average bluefish weighs in at 7lbs but it is not uncommon to encounter bluefish locally to 18lbs! -Set the hook and hold on!
Fluke, Porgies, Blackfish and SeaBass
These bottom dwellers are usually found around wrecks and rock piles are arguably some of the best eating fish in the sea. All have a mild flavored white meat that are excellent for baking, pan-frying, grilling or whatever your preference. Specific trips are often requested to target these fish so please check regulations before booking as open seasons and bag limits change annually.
