Fishers board The Angler II, a 40-passenger vessel outfitted with a spacious wraparound deck and sonar that helps the captain to point the prow toward schools of bass and bluefish. Fishing trips include all fishing equipment and bait, and passengers are welcome to bring along drinks and food. Trips depart on Fridays and Saturdays at 6 p.m. and on Sunday afternoons at 3 p.m.
Angler Fishing Fleet
Every summer, Angler Fishing Fleet's Captain Ken welcomes youngsters aboard his fishing boat for a weeklong fishing camp. He schools campers in fishing techniques, conservation, and boat safety in a demonstration of the company’s initiatives to empower budding fishermen in exploring local waters. In addition to camps, staff captains host frequent lectures that cover subjects such as anchoring techniques, bait, and which fish are the likeliest to grant wishes.
On private charters, the crew seeks schools with onboard sonar equipment and supplies passengers with fishing gear and bait. The Angler II ferries up to 28 passengers on fishing trips in the western Long Island Sound. It is a 50-foot Coast Guard–inspected vessel. The sleek Angler III, another 50-foot Coast Guard–inspected vessel, also escorts passengers through the Sound, but it can hold up to 38 passengers. Angler IV is their new flag ship designed to hold up to 69 passengers and, along with Angler III, includes a cozy cabin with a galley that serves snacks and beverages. Plus, they offers both indoor and outdoor seating. The smallest member of the fleet, the Angler Express, is designed to hold up to six passengers on private charters. All four vessels in the fleet are equipped with state-of-the-art safety and fish-finding equipment.
