Striped Bass Fishing in NYC

Striped bass, or rockfish, is an exciting fish for both new and experienced anglers in NYC. With their attractive striping and impressive size – a 40 inch striper is a definite possibility during the right season – striped bass are an impressive trophy fish and a tasty fish to keep you fed from several meals. Fishermen will chase striped bass all season through the freshwater where they breed and later in saltwater around NYC.

But the best way to catch striped bass in NYC is aboard a fishing boat. Marilyn Jean Fishing runs public fishing trips and private charters for striped bass in NYC’s best locations for fishing. Our daily striped bass fishing trips are an affordable and convenient way to take advantage of top fishing in NYC while also enjoying an exciting day out on the water.

Daily Fishing Trips for Striped Bass

We run daily fishing trips for stripers throughout the spawning season, starting in April and lasting into the summer. Night striped bass fishing trips depart at 7pm and get you out on the water at the time when stripers are most active.

Each trip departs from Sheepshead Bay in Brooklyn on one of our well-appointed fishing boats in NYC. Our boats are equipped with comfortable seating, restrooms, refrigerators and microwaves, and climate control for a relaxing trip when you need a break between casting. The cost of your ticket also includes the right bait for striped bass and cleaning services. Rods, reels, and tackle are available for rent.

From Sheepshead Bay, we will depart to several of the leading fishing grounds around NYC. We may visit Jamaica Bay, Rockaway Beach, NY Harbor, and other saltwater and brackish habitats depending on the time of year. Aboard the Marilyn Jean, we make it convenient to go to multiple locations and move around quickly to where the fish are biting, maximizing your catch for the day.

Private Fishing Charters for Striped Bass and More

If you are seeking a more customized or private experience, we also offer private fishing charters. A striped bass fishing charter reserves one of our boats for your party for a half day or full day of fishing, giving you a unique experience for retirement parties, anniversaries, corporate events, birthdays, or a thrilling day out with friends.

Each private fishing charter includes all the gear you need to hook striped bass, including rods, reels, tackle, and bait. We also offer fishing lessons to guide those in your party who may be new to fishing or experienced fishermen who want to know the best way to catch striped bass.
