Deep-sea fishing is like raising children: both require patience, superior breath-holding skills, and a pocket full of worms to entice cooperation. Catch your next meal with today's Groupon: for $29, you get an all-day fishing trip on The Bullet Fleet, located at Pier 1 in Sheepshead Bay (a $60 value). Trips take place 7:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m. daily.
The experienced mates behind The Bullet Fleet guide sea-goers on full-day fishing trips throughout New York's Sheepshead Bay. The 112-passenger boat comes equipped with all the rods and bait an aspiring fish-wrangler needs to catch a brood of bottom feeders, including porgies, sea bass, red hake, and money-borrowing siblings. Patrons may bring a packed lunch as well as drinks and beer (no hard liquor) on their eight-hour sea-excursions, and the Bullet is stocked with sodas and snacks available for purchase.
The Bullet Fleet
Captain Jeff and his mates pilot two vessels through the waters that lap New York’s varied shorelines, hunting fish the old-fashioned way—with rod and reel—on daily scheduled trips as well as private chartered voyages. This pair of ships forms the entirety of The Bullet Fleet, which provides deep-water excursions for salty dogs and newcomers alike. Onboard, passengers receive all the necessary gear and a modicum of instruction, as the crew takes a sink-or-swim approach to learning to fish, much like Sir Isaac Newton’s attempts to teach an apple to fly.
