Captain Mike Smith Fishing Adventures

If you are looking for a relaxing day of fishing, lovely scenery, and lots of fun - then hop aboard "The Green Eyed Lady" with Captain Mike Smith Fishing Adventures. Fishing has been a part of Capt. Mike’s life for as long as he can remember. It started as a hobby, then a summer job during school days, and a retirement job. Over the years a lot of things have changed, but his passion for fishing never did.

Explore the waters of Niantic Bay and Long Island Sound on a 23’ Parker boat that accommodates up to 3 guests. This new center console was built in 2019 and features the latest navigational electronics. She also comes with a 200 HP Yamaha engine and a live bait tank. With the safe and steady ride she provides, you’ll be on your fishing spot in no time.

There’s lots of different species you can catch here, but you’re most likely to catch Striped Bass, Bluefish, Blackfish, Porgy, Fluke, Bonito, and False Albacore. Your targets depend on the fishing techniques you use and vice versa, so you can try out trolling, bottom fishing, jigging, and drift fishing.

Captain Mike loves to teach the kids how to fish and he has a special program just for them. Get in touch to discuss the details and let the captain prepare the right equipment.

Rods, reels, terminal tackle, and bait are all included in the price. The captain also covers your fishing license, supplies bottled water, and cleans your catch after the trip. You only need to pack some snacks and snap awesome photos.

Captain Mike Smith Fishing Adventures loves to spread the knowledge and love for fishing. Hop aboard!

Captain Mike grew up on the North Shore of Long Island where he learned to fish, clam, and oyster as a youngster. During the summer of his High School and College years, he would work on the oyster and clam boats in Oyster Bay Harbor. After college Mike started what would be a 40-year career at United Parcel Service as a Manager. After Mike retired in 2019, his kids said to him " Dad, you're going to need a bigger boat ".... and so it didn't take long for Captain Mike to start his second career as a Fishing Charter Captain. Hop Aboard the "Green Eye'd Lady" and let's catch some fish!
