Chartering Long Island: Fishing Trip Recommendations Around Long Island (Part 1: Long Island Sound)

It’s the most...wonderful time...of the year!

Striper season in New York officially kicked back in on Monday 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 blog will attempt to give a summary of some qualitycharter 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 with your go-to’s it’ll help me build out a bigger guide!
