Stamford Fishing Charters

Just booked!

Stamford Charters invites you to experience all the great fishing of the Long Island Sound. Sign up with Captain Joseph Landi, and he’ll do his best to make your angling dreams come true. He fell in love with fishing at a young age, and that flame is still burning strong. He’s very experienced when it comes to spots and has a lot of wreck numbers that other people don’t know about.

His boat is a 35’ Downeast that’s powered by a 275 HP Cummins engine. The onboard amenities include top of the line electronics like a GPS unit and fishfinder device, a fully-flushable toilet, and a wheelchair ramp. There’s plenty of room here for up to 6 anglers to fish in comfort all day long.

Speaking of fishing, you’re going to love the spectacular angling opportunities found in the Long Island Sound. Some of your main targets will include the likes of Striped Bass, Bluefish, Black Seabass, Flounder, and many more. Anglers of all ages and skill levels are welcome to try their hand at this top-notch fishery.

Rods, reels, tackle, and fishing licenses are all included in the price of any given trip. Not only that, but the crew will clean the catch afterwards for your convenience. The crew speaks both English and Spanish. There’s also bottled water aboard, but you’re more than welcome to bring your own drinks and snacks for the ride. The Stamford Charters crew hopes to welcome you aboard soon!
