Fishing boats slash through the waves as captains chart a course to find particular species of fish, including striped bass, bluefish, and porgy. Armed with all the necessary equipment and knowledge, guests choose from a treasure trove of lures and bait to ensnare their sea quarry. Once caught, the panting fish pose for a photo before being released back into their aquatic habitat. Between reeling in blackfish or aquamen, crew members and fisher-folk nibble on provided snacks, slake thirsts with a beverage, or refuel with a reinvigorating lunch.<p>
Western Sound Charters
Helmed by United States Coast Guard captains, Western Sound Charter’s premium boats can just as easily jaunt through Long Island Sound to the Statue of Liberty as they can wend their way along fishing routes replete with striped bass. The fleet encompasses six boat styles, which range from a 25-foot hardtop to a child-safe sightseeing and fishing vessel, whose floodlights can illuminate night expeditions and easily stand up to the bullying of pompous lighthouses. The company can accommodate parties of up to 100, and an advanced pairing service matches each client to an activity-appropriate boat.
