Long Island has many great freshwater fishing spots in the local lakes and ponds, as well as saltwater fishing from many spots on the coast. Yet one of the best ways to access fishing around Long Island is aboard a fishing boat that can take you directly to the action and provide an opportunity to catch any of the wide range of fish in waters around Long Island, New York City, and New Jersey.
Marilyn Jean Fishing has almost daily fishing trips throughout the year. Our trips leave from Sheepshead Bay in Brooklyn and head to many different fishing locations around Long Island and New York Harbor for a fishing experience for all ages. You can purchase tickets in advance for upcoming trips online.
What Do We Fish for on the Marilyn Jean
The harbors, bays, and inlets around Long Island and NYC are the ideal environment for a number of different fish species. Each season has a few fish populations at their peak, making for the year round opportunities for fishing around Long Island. We offer fishing trips for:
- Striped Bass
- Tautog, and Others
Trip options will vary throughout the year. All year long, we traditionally offer trips that leave in the morning and return mid afternoon, giving you an entire day of fishing in multiple offshore destinations.
We also offer half day trips at different times, perfect for those who are newer to fishing and looking to try it out, younger anglers, and visitors to Long Island who already have a full schedule of things to see and do. Evening trips are also a great option and often get you out on the water at the time which fish are most active.
