Half Day trips on the Marilyn Jean IV have been doing well on most trips, both Friday and Saturday. We had very good porgy fishing with some big keepers. Sunday we had tougher conditions and a much pickier bite, but still managed to catch a few!
*Don’t forget we start night ling fishing on the Marilyn Jean IV this Friday at 9 pm, online reservations are required!*
Full Day trips on the Marilyn Jean V are continuing to produce a good catch of tasty ling and some porgies.
We are hitting the porgy grounds in the morning which has been paying off with some full buckets. Then off to the deep for some ling. Remember sea bass season is now open. As the porgies begin to take hold we will stick with it longer.
Night sea bass and blues have been good, with keeper bass being taken every night; plenty of short action and a nice catch of blues on the chunks.
This week we will start transitioning over to porgies and blues, as the bass bite tends to slow and the vampire porgies move into our area.
We will be fishing everyday this week & weeks to come from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn NY!

The MJ5 is is back from the shipyard. Unfortunately we will not be sailing until at least May 1st. Believe me our crew is eager to get back out there. But we must do our part to protect our crew and customers during these times. We will continue performing maintenance on the boats at our dock In Sheepshead Bay until the NY State eases up on business restrictions.
When the restrictions do ease up we will immediately start sailing again. Remember the Marilyn Jean 5 will provide you with the most space on any party boat in our area. We will limit our capacity and with our already extremely wide isles and large cabin our customers will enjoy the most distancing between passengers when it’s time to fish again in New York.
Once we get the green light to fish we be sailing everyday @ 7am to 3pm for Ling and Cod on the MJ5 and some Striped Bass trips on the MJ4 as well. Will will also start sailing at night from 7pm to 12 midnight on the MJ5 for Striped Bass and Bluefish.
We look forward to fishing with all of you again soon. Until then we pray 🙏 you will all be well, stay safe and do your part to slow down the spread and help those in need.
As always feel free to give me a call for updates or to book a private fishing charter. Ryan 917-650-3212

The Codfish moved in and were biting this weekend on our 7am trips ! Clam bait and jigs both worked fine. We didn’t try much for Ling because the Cod bite was good, but there are some Ling around and we will check out some Ling drops next time.
We will be sailing this weekend Saturday and Sunday 1/4 & 1/5 from 7am to 3pm $65 for Cod and Ling fishing. Pics from this past weekend.
