It’s the most...wonderful time...of the year!
Striper season in New York officially kicked back in last week and fluking will pick up in just over two weeks. After watching their buddies in New Jersey bag quality bass for the past month, Long Island anglers are hitting the shores and firing up their boats: getting ready to put some meat on the deck.
This month’s two part blog series will attempt to give a summary of some quality charter boats in each region of Long Island. Some I’ve been on myself, others are recommendations from friends or fishing resources online that I trust and use regularly. My goal is to eventually be able to have a more comprehensive charter guide up on the site, but that may take a season or two and you gotta start somewhere!
I’m 100% missing a lot of great Long Island captains/boats here, so it would be awesome if you could leave some recommendations in the comments or shoot me an email at email@example.com with your go-to’s it’ll help me build out a bigger guide! Read More

As great as our beaches are, kicking back in the sand and surf isn’t the only way to enjoy Long Beach’s expansive coastal habitat. From quiet evenings on the boardwalk to exploring the marshes around Reynold’s channel, there are countless ways to enjoy the outdoors in Long Beach.
Here are a few of them to get you started. Read More
