Fall Fishing Report for NYC

Summer in NYC is coming to an end, but the fishing season is far from over. With the fall months likely to offer some of the best fishing of the year, now is a great time to start planning for fishing trips in NYC in order to have a shot at catching all the fish that are in this area during September, October, and November.

Best Fish to Catch in NYC in the Fall

For many of the migratory fish in NYC, fall provides a great time each year as the fishing season peaks and the fish begin to head back towards warmer waters in the south after having spent the summer. Other fish will often be extremely active in the fall as they participate in more aggressive feeding to build up their energy reserves for the winter months when food is scarce.

The different fish that are in season at this time of year include:

  • Striped Bass
  • Ling
  • Tautog
  • Scup
  • Summer Flounder

There are multiple ways to fish for all of these different saltwater fish this fall, but many experienced and new anglers find that a fishing trip is the best way to get to where the fish are. It also gives them the best shot at catching a large number of fish, including a few impressive trophy fish.

This fall, the Marilyn Jean will run NYC fishing trips from Brooklyn with trips, departing every day and often with full day and half day options. A fishing trip on the Marilyn Jean promises a rewarding fishing trip, a chance to experience being on the water and fall weather, and a comfortable journey guided by a friendly captain and crew.

Updated Fishing Limits for Fishing in NYC

Taking fish home and cooking up freshly caught fish after a day on the water can be one of the best parts of fishing. If you are on a Manhattan fishing trip or participating in any saltwater fishing off the coast of NYC, you need to be aware of the daily catch limits from the Department of Environmental Conservation. These limits detail how many fish you can take home.

The DEC updates these limits from time to time based on current and projected fish populations. As a result, they have updated catch limits for fall and winter 2022 for summer flounder, porgy and black sea bass that all fishermen need to be aware of.

New Daily Catch Limits in NYC from the DEC

Saltwater fishing daily limits are put in place to prevent overfishing and the decimation of fish species. They determine how many fish you can take home, although there is no limit for catch and release fishing.

Many fish, such as striped bass, have already had imposed limits, and the DEC has recently added the following limits:

  • Porgy – The limit for porgy, or scup, is 30 fish for individuals and 50 fish for people onboard a party fishing boat like the Marilyn Jean. Party fishing boats also now have a season between the beginning of September and the end of October. All fish must be over 10 inches.
  • Summer Flounder – Fluke has a daily catch limit of 4 fish for all individuals with a season that runs from May 1 to October 9. Fish need to measure at least 18.5 inches.
  • Black Sea Bass – Individuals can take home 3 black sea bass until August 31 and 6 between September 1 and December 31. At any time, kept fish need to be 16 inches long or more.

On a party boat fishing trip in New York on the Marilyn Jean, our crew can keep track of all these limits for you, as well as clean any of the fish you will be taking home.

Additionally, with our expertise and knowledge of local fish populations, we can often get you to fishing hot spots for the best chance of hitting those daily fishing limits if you are trying to stock up on fish in NYC. View our calendar to see which fish we are currently sailing for and purchase your tickets today.

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.

  • Fluke
  • Ling
  • Cod
  • Mackerel
  • Porgy

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.

Fall Fishing Trips in NYC

The fall months in NYC can be a perfect time to go fishing. Temperatures generally remain relatively warm, a number of fish are active in the area just off the coast, and many fish species are feeding voraciously in preparation for winter. This makes for both a pleasant day on the water and a rewarding fishing trip in NYC.

Marilyn Jean Fishing has NYC fall fishing trips departing almost daily in September, October, and November. We sail from Brooklyn with full day and half day fishing trips that will take you to some of the best saltwater fishing spots off the coast of NYC and New Jersey. Check out all of our upcoming fishing trips and book your ticket.

Fish We Catch on Autumn Fishing Trips

There are several fish species in NYC that remain active as temperatures begin to cool. For some fish, months like October can even present the best fishing of the season. Some of the different species we go after on the Marilyn Jean include:

  • Striped Bass – Striped bass season officially ends December 15, but fall can be the best time to fish for them before bass start to swim further south for the winter. These late season bass offer a great chance to catch a large trophy fish as they have had time to feed and grow all summer and are putting on extra weight to make it through the winter.
  • Porgy – Porgy are most active in the late summer and early fall, but our team is able to track and help you catch them into November and December. This fish provides an exciting fishing opportunity that will test your skills when you go to reel one in.
  • Fluke – Summer flounder are still around in the fall and our fluke fishing trips on the Marilyn Jean will have you meeting daily catch limits for fluke until the end of the season in October. Fluke fishing in NYC is a great option for those wanting to try out bottom fishing.
  • Blackfish – Also known as tautog, blackfish are fighters that live around rocks, jetties, piers, and other rocky hiding places. Their populations peak twice a year, including in October and November.
  • Ling – Ling live in the waters around NYC all year long, but populations begin to increase in the fall and peak in the winter. This makes the fall a great time to head out to catch ling which offer a more relaxing trip and a tasty fish to cook up when you get back home.

The boats in our fleet sail for full day trips that run from 7am to 3pm, half day trips from 8am to 1pm or 2pm to 6pm, and evening trips at 7:30pm depending on the day of the week. These times are subject to change, so always take a look at the current schedule for our up to date times.

At Marilyn Jean Fishing, we offer fishing trips almost every day of the year, including throughout the fall. This gives us up-to -date information on where fish are from day to day and as we move into autumn, increasing the chance that you will be able to catch several fish while aboard.

Each boat in our fleet is equipped with twin diesel engines as well for a fast and smooth trip so we can spend less time on travel and more time fishing.

How to Catch and Release Fish Successfully

When fishing in NYC, catch and release fishing is a valuable technique. There are many fish that are not right for eating and you will not want to take home. For instance, the trophy striped bass, while impressive in photos, will not be very tasty. Other fish may be too small to keep or eat or the wrong type.

Additionally, as you hone your skills with fishing, there may be days where you quickly reach your limit on how many fish you can take home per the NYC Department of Environmental Protection, but you want to continue fishing. In all of these cases, you will need to be able to practice catch and release fishing so that you can safely return fish to the water alive.

Catch and Release Fishing Guidelines

Catch and release fishing is a humane and eco-friendly way to fish. It prevents overfishing so that populations remain strong year over year and people in NYC can continue to enjoy fishing experiences. Handling the process of catching the fish and returning it to the water does require a bit of knowledge to be sure that they are not accidentally hurting or killing the fish. In general, you should follow these steps:

  • Don’t Play the Fish Too Long – Land you fish as fast as you can and avoid making it too tired as you reel in. Being tired means the fish will take longer to recover after you release it.
  • Minimize Out of Water Time – Keep the time that the fish spends out of the water as short as possible and release the fish as quickly as you can.
  • Keep Hands Moist – You should handle the fish as little as possible, and keep your hands wet when you do to be gentle on the fish’s scales.
  • Use a Landing Net – A landing net will also decrease the time that you handle the fish. Rubber nets are best since they are least likely to damage a fish’s gills.
  • Support the Fish – If holding the fish, cradle it gently in your hands. You should hold a larger fish with a hand underneath its belly.
  • Remove or Leave the Hook – Removing the hook is best unless it is deeply logged. In these cases, cut the line closely and leave the hook in the fish rather than trying to pull it out.
  • Return the Fish Gently – Let the fish go back into the water head first and slowly. If you can, let the fish jump into the water from your hand itself. Going too quickly here can shock the fish and kill it.

Certain fish species may also have additional requirements in order to facilitate catch and release fishing. For example, striped bass, which are under environmental regulations, require fishing with a circle hook as opposed to an offset hook or J-hook to help reduce the risk that the hook will become stuck in the fish’s stomach.

Additionally, you should be aware of any part you should also be aware of any additional guidelines or local area regulations.

If you are interested in trying fishing in NYC, taking a trip aboard the Marilyn Jean is a great way to get started. Because many of the anglers that sail on our half day and full day fishing trips in NYC enjoy sport fishing, catch and release is a staple – although not required, as long as regulations permit – on board and our crew can help you use the proper procedure to be sure that you are safely handling your fish. Buy a ticket for an upcoming fishing boat trip to experience the best sport fishing in NYC.
