Fishing Report 6-24, 2023: Jumbo Porgies

Look at these big boys. We went out on the water during the day on June 24th, at 2pm, and then again at 7:30pm and the porgies were not only biting – these bad boys were huge. You already know that porgies taste incredible, but when you add in their size, you’re getting a ton of meat. Check out some of the photos of the fish our guests took home:

Porgies are not the only fish we caught that day, but they definitely were the most common, and their size was wild. We’re sailing almost every day, morning and night, so make sure you contact us to get your tickets and book your trip.

Fishing Report – June 7th, 2023

We’ve already had some great fishing weeks so far in 2023, but today’s Ling fishing was pretty spectacular. Better than even last week. We expect tomorrow’s outing for ling to be just as good. You can see some of the catches in the pictures below. Last night, we also went out for our night fishing trip, and the blues and bass were out in FORCE – pretty much all of our guests took home something amazing to eat the next few days.

Take a look at some of our pictures from today’s and yesterday’s trips:

Great times as always. We hope you’re able to join us next time. We are sailing 7am to 3pm for Ling, and then sailing again at 7pm for blues and other night fishing catches. Come join us! Call captain Anthony at 347 952 1442 or captain Tony at 646-413-1643.

Fishing Report 5-30-23 – Blues and Bass Biting

This year, we keep on seeing some really solid fishing when out on the water. It’s been cold during our night trips, but the fish keep biting. The last couple of nights, our guests have been catching Blues and Bass, and in the mornings – when it’s been warmer – we’ve had guests picking up a lot of ling.

Take a look at some of the catches from yesterday.

The season started a bit slow a few months ago, but the way it has picked up has been solid. Haven’t really had many bad days yet, and the riders have been making some really large catches – and some delicious meals – after they’ve disembarked the boat. Join us next time.

May 24, 2023 – Fishing Report – Fluke, Blues, and Bass

We went out on May 24th, like we do every day. This time, in our morning trip, the crowd was lighter, so we decided to look for Fluke (summer flounder). It was a success. Our guests caught a lot of keepers, and also grabbed a lot of shorts that we released back into the water. Overall, a really solid morning of fishing:

We also went out on the water from 7pm to 12am for our evening trip. Our guests caught a lot of blues and bass, which were biting even more than we expected. Hard to get some good photos in the dark, but you can see the size of some of these bad boys that our guests took home with them. These are going to taste great for the next several days:

As always, make sure you come join us and grab a ride on the Marilyn Jean. You can book your tickets right on our website, or call Anthony at 347-952-1442 or Captain Tony at 646-413-1643.

Mother’s Day Fishing Report – 5-14-23

Mother’s Day ending up being a popular day for fishing, and anyone that joined us had a really good night. We went out late for a 7pm to 12am trip, and many of the people aboard the Marilyn Jean ended up reaching the limit of bass and bluefish. It was an amazing night for fishing.

Earlier in the day we also went out on the water for a 7am to 3pm trip. Ling weren’t biting quite as often, and we made a lot of drops, but most of our guests still went home with dinner. We’ve heard some reports of another fishing spot that’s more active and we’re going to be taking our guests there soon.

Book your tickets today or call Captain Tony or Captain Anthony at 646-413-1643. Private charters are available, too.

Fishing Report 5-13-23

All we have to say is “wow.” Our trip on the 13th was an incredible one. We were catching up to 20lb bluefish, and our guests kept on hitting the bass limit for the NYC area. Incredible. We’re going to keep sailing both 7am to 3pm and 7pm to 12am, so make sure you come aboard. Ling also remains good right now, and we’re continually finding new spots for even better catches.

Book your tickets today or call Captain Tony or Captain Anthony at 646-413-1643. Private charters are available, too.
