Loaded down with affable gangs of amateur fishermen, the Captain Midnight and the Midnight Star set off from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn's Pier 1 for full- and half-day charter fishing trips. After hooking the provided bait, passengers drop in their lines and patiently await bites from species such as fluke and porgy in the summer or blackfish and ling throughout the rest of the year. On the trip back to port, the boat's deckhands assist with cleaning and packaging the fresh catch. Owners can then take home their catch to toss on the grill or use to catch an even bigger fish in their bathtub that doubles as a lake.
