Captain Rudy Maisto invites you to come aboard the Lady L and join him for an adventure on the New York area waters. Lady L Charters specializes in fishing for trophy Striped Bass and have been doing so for the last 30 years. They’ll adapt the trip to best serve your needs. So go for the fast-paced action and chase trophies or relax in nature while fishing the popular spots.

Lady L is one of Staten Island’s finest fishing boats and has been for the last 40 years. It’s fishing as it should be aboard this sea-hardened vessel. She’s a 32’ Performer saltwater fisher, powered by twin 300 HP Cummins engines. On board, you’ll find all the electronic and safety equipment you could think of. Captain Rudy has been a professional fisherman most of his life and his boat reflects that.

Up to 6 anglers can join all charter trips, including any kids ages 4 and older. All guests are able to fish at the same time. Fishing tackle, artificial lures, and live bait are all covered by the charter. You may still bring your gear if you’d like to fish with the equipment you’re familiar with. Also included in the price is your fishing license so no need to worry about getting one before the trip.

The charter built its name on catching giant Striped Bass and you’ll be able to be a part of this tradition. If you chose to, you can also try your hand at bottom fishing or jigging and target Black Seabass and Fluke.

The only things you should remember to bring with you are food and drinks. Also, remember to dress for the season you’re fishing in.

Now, if you’re ready to escape the breakneck pace of NYC, book a trip with Lady L and meet Capt. Rudy on the water!
