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 packed lunches 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.
Weather permitting, fishing takes place year-round, excluding the month of March.
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.
