The waters around NYC offer plenty of great fishing opportunities even as the weather begins to cool. Many saltwater fish remain active in the winter, and other fish populations peak during these months. This gives local and visiting anglers numerous opportunities to make some great catches in NYC on a winter fishing trip.
Marilyn Jean Fishing offers fishing trips in NYC throughout the winter. During the colder months we regularly sail from Sheepshead Bay in Brooklyn to catch a variety of winter fish. Check our calendar for upcoming trips and reserve your spot by buying tickets.
What You Will Experience on an NYC Winter Fishing Trip
Despite colder temperatures, several species of saltwater fish remain active in the waters around NYC and NJ and this can be a rewarding time of the year to fish. We have winter fishing trips for:
We run trips for these different fish with half day and full day options based on when fish are active and the experience you want out on the water.
Our dock is located in Sheepshead Bay in Brooklyn, and from there, we can head to locations like
- Rockaway Beach
- Raritan Bay
- Jamaica Bay
- Sandy Hook Bay, and Others
We base our destination on where we expect fish to be active based on our up to date fishing reports, our daily trips, and the signs of optimal fishing locations that our experienced crew can spot. The powerful, twin diesel engines on our fleet mean we also are able to move around throughout the day to track fish without sacrificing too much time to travel.
