Beaches and parks around Staten Island offer prime opportunities for fishing. But you can also head off the coast by boat to places like Raritan Bay, Rockaway Beach, Sandyhook Bay, and other locations around NYC. This offers both a unique fishing experience and a chance to catch the many exciting saltwater fish that live around Staten Island and the rest of New York.
Marilyn Jean Fishing offers fishing trips near Staten Island. Our trips depart from Sheepshead Bay in Brooklyn and run year round with trips for a range of saltwater fish varieties around NYC. Check our online calendar for our upcoming trips and purchase tickets.
What You Will Fish for on a Staten Island Fishing Trip
After departing from our dock in Brooklyn, Marilyn Jean Fishing travels to a number of locations off the coast of New York and New Jersey. We choose our destinations based on where we know fish have recently been active, the timing of year, and the type of fish we are going after, whether that is a bottom feeding blackfish that thrives in rocky conditions or a striped bass in fast flowing currents.
Some of the locations we most often visit include:
- Raritan Bay
- Coney Island
- Sandy Hook
- Rockaway Beach
- Jamaica Bay
Each of our party boats is equipped with twin diesel engines, making it possible for us to get to our destinations quickly and move between locations throughout the trip to maximize the time that you spend fishing.
