Fire Island Fishing Charters Llc

Just off the coast of Long Island lies Fire Island, a thin line separating Long Island from the Atlantic Ocean. Fire Island’s location is perfectly suited to offer anglers varied fishing, something Fire Island Fishing Charters capitalizes on!

Climb aboard their 24’ enter console manufactured by Robalo. She’s built for inshore and coastal fishing, providing a first-class ride. She can handle up to 4 anglers fishing at the same time in comfort, without tangling lines or bumping elbows. Powered by a 300 HP Yamaha outboard engine, she can cruise at a maximum speed of 35 knots.

You’ll target a variety of gorgeous fish with Captain Steve Smith. The famous Striped Bass is a major target, but you can also go for Flounders, False Albacores, Porgies, Black Seabass, and Weakfish, along with other species you may run into. You can try a variety of fishing techniques with the equipment provided, however, you will have to supply your own fly rods or bows for bowfishing.

The charter will provide you with quality rods and reels, with lures being available for rent. Live bait is included in the price and usually prepared before you arrive, although you can fish for it too if you want.

If you’re looking for some adrenaline-pumping action, the charter specializes in a “run and gun” style of fishing, targeting seasonal fish as far as away as Jones Beach. Join them and see just how hot the bite can get around Fire Island!

Grew up in the great South Bay and have competitively fished Fire Islands inshore, coastal and offshore waters for 20 years. After years of catering to friends and family and seeing the excitement and joy on each person's face as they continuously caught trophy fish over the years, I have decided to start my own business.
