As the snow-white prow of the ship slices through the slate-gray waters of Sheepshead Bay, waves lap up and kiss the green lettering on the side reading Sea Queen VII. Helmed by seasoned skipper Captain Steve, the 85-foot vessel is on one of its family-oriented fishing expeditions. Captain Steve and his knowledgeable crew ensure the ship's safe passage as passengers focus on casting their lines from the wide beam or basking in the fresh air breezing across the sun deck. The mouthwatering aromas of pizza and grilled burgers flood the ship's galley, beckoning guests to take a break from fishing for a casual bite to eat. Accommodating all schedules and fishing preferences, Captain Steve takes passengers out on morning and afternoon trips as well as late night excursions to reel in nocturnal fish and insomniac merpeople.
Over their more than 30 years in business, the captains behind The Midnight Fleet have found some of the best boating spots in and around Sheepshead Bay, whether passengers are in search of fish or dazzling displays of light. The crews know all the best places to drop anchor for Coney Island's fireworks, which illuminate the sky every Friday evening during the summer.
Daytime voyages set out for fluke, sea bass, porgies, and other species, all of which may become prize catches for any level of angler. That's because crews aboard Captain Midnight and Midnight Star, the fleet's two ships, don't require their passengers to have previous experience or a good family recipe for tartar sauce. The expert guides will also gladly help everyone with their fishing technique, from baiting a hook to cleaning the catch.
About the 55-foot Capt’s Lady charter-fishing vessel, fishers of all experience levels angle for fluke, striped bass, bluefish, or porgy in Brooklyn’s Sheepshead Bay. The boat’s twin Detroit Diesel engines keep things motoring while an experienced crew of happily grizzled seafarers make the experience fun and easy. When they’re not helping newcomers get used to fishing’s nuances, they’re happy to answer other questions; go ahead and ask them about the biggest fish they’ve ever caught, or about that time they mistook the Statue of Liberty for a really big mermaid. Recently renovated, the ship also includes creature comforts such as an onboard bathroom, snack bar, and cabin seating.
More than 50 years ago, Donna G was born at Virginia’s Price boatyard. Since then, she has sailed from Point Pleasant, New Jersery; Hyannis Port, Massachusetts; and other famed locales. Lately, however, she has made her home in Sheepshead Bay.
While her biography reads like that of a lifelong mariner, Donna G is actually a classic, US Coast Guard–certified party boat. Captain Dominick of Donna G, LLC recently restored to the boat to a yacht-like finish with passion and unwavering attention to detail and outfitted her with cutting-edge fish-finding electronics. Nowadays, Captain Dominick showcases his handiwork—as well as his more than 50 years of boating experience and care for his clients—on chartered fishing trips, which trawl New York’s waters for flounder and other catches.
