Montauk, NY is known for being home to some seriously productive fishing grounds. Why not experience them alongside a captain who has been exploring these waters for an impressive 40 years? Come aboard Bitchin Fishin Charters and get ready to reel in your dream catch under the expert guidance of Captain Richard Lotito!

Capt. Richard (you can call him Richie) started out fishing with his father, and his love for everything angling-related has only grown since then. He decided to start his own business this year – now that his own children are older, he wants to pass on his years of knowledge and expertise to others! Whether you’re a new angler looking for an inshore adventure, or a seasoned fisherman who wants to battle offshore species, he can’t wait to welcome you aboard.

You’ll be traveling aboard a 36’ Albermarle offshore vessel that can accommodate up to 6 anglers. She’s perfectly built to tackle both inshore and offshore waters, so you’ll have a smooth and comfortable journey. On board, you’ll find top-of-the-line navigational and safety equipment, including life jackets for children aged 12 and above. She’s also decked out with a full toilet, air-conditioning, and outriggers for maximum fishability!

Capt. Richie uses his intimate knowledge of these waters to help guests reel in their dream catch – no matter whether you’re looking to spin and jig for inshore species such as Striped Bass and Black Seabass, or battle world-famous offshore species such as Mahi Mahi, the majestic Blue Marlin, or Swordfish! If you’ve always wanted to come face-to-gills with some awesome marine life, you’ll have the chance to target Mako Shark, too, and plenty of others.

Your trip includes top-notch Penn and Shimano rods and reels. Whether you’re a hardcore angler looking to explore these waters with a captain guests describe as fun and easy-going, or want to reel in your first ever catch, come aboard Bitchin Fishing Charters for the angling adventure of a lifetime!
