The vessel is stable and comfortable, with an onboard toilet, and a sitting area. To find the best fishing grounds for the day, there are quality navigational electronics, and of course, the captain’s ample knowledge of the fish behavior.

The waters of Long Island Sound are teeming with various fish species, ready to gulp down your lure in no time. On expeditions with Port of Call Charters, you will be targeting anything from Bluefish, Tautog, and Black Drum to Porgy, Black Seabass, Weakfish, and Flounder.

All bait and tackle will be provided for you, but if you’d like to bring your favorite rod, you’re welcome to do so. When you come back to land, you will get your catch clean and filleted, so that you can cook it later using your favorite recipe.

Charters with Capt. Sean are child-friendly and departure times are flexible, he even organizes Kids Fishing Special trips, where you can take your little ones to help them fall in love with fishing.

You only need to pack snacks and drinks, and leave everything else in your guide’s capable hands. With Port of Call Charters, unforgettable fishing times lie ahead!
