Fishing combines quiet contemplation with an alert awareness of the world around you, and it does so far more safely than attempts to drive with one’s eyes closed. Savor the sport of philosophers and size-exaggerators with today's Groupon: for $30, you get an eight-hour morning fishing trip or six-hour evening fishing trip from Island Current Fleet on City Island (a $65 value). Morning trips leave daily at 8 a.m., and night trips leave daily at 6:30 p.m. Rods, reels, bait, and tackle are included, so seafarers need only bring sandwiches and drinks.

Island Current's flotilla of spacious, seaworthy vessels transports fisherman of all ages across the Long Island Sound's abundant waterways. Workhorse sailors can dedicate a day to one of Island Current's eight-hour morning trips, offering hooking opportunities to snag bleary-eyed porgy, flounder, and fluke with fresh bait, lures, and Crunch Berries. The six-hour night-fishing trip allows pole-wielders to snatch predatory bluefish and striped bass using special nighttime tactics that eliminate the need for bulky, infrared scuba masks or cumbersome sleeping-bag swimsuits. With hair flowing in salt-tinged zephyrs, up to 110 fishers can bask in the majestic grandeur of New York's stunning skyline as the ship's wizened captain trolls the seascapes for fishing hotspots. Ace anglers can challenge their seafood-plucking prowess and beginners receive rigging, netting, and fish-cleaning tips from the crew of aquatic veterans.

Island Current

Each vessel in Island Current’s four-boat fleet ferries 21–110 passengers across the fish-filled waters of Long Island Sound and Snug Harbor. Fishing charters reel in catches such as blackfish, ling, and cod, and sightseeing tours fill eyes with up-close views of the Statue of Liberty, historic lighthouses, and other landmarks. After each schooner sets sail from City Island at Jack’s Bait & Tackle, fleet owner Captain Chris comes on deck to share his angling expertise and introduce first-time fishermen to knowledgeable local mermaids.
