AbbyLiFishing invites you for a fun day fishing out of Freeport, New York. Come explore its inshore and offshore waters as well as reefs and wrecks, all in search of the prized species that roam this area. Captain Michael Ardelean will be there to take you to the best spots and help you return with a worthy catch.

Your journey will start on a 23’ Sea Ox walkaround boat that can carry up to 4 guests. It runs on a 225 HP Suzuki engine with a maximum cruising speed of 28 knots. The boat is rigged with quality navigation technology that includes GPS, fishfinder, and radio systems. You’ll have an ice-box at your disposal to store your fish and drinks.

The species you’ll go after include Black Seabass, Scup, Weakfish, Striped Bass, and more. You’ll bottom fish and troll for them using light and heavy tackle. You’re free to keep your catch and take it home but if you want, you can also release it. Children are welcome to join the trip. Also, bear in mind that alcohol is forbidden on board.

You’ll be supplied with all the rods, reels, tackle, and bait, and the captain will even clean and fillet your catch for free. Just make sure you’ve packed food, drinks, and fishing licenses before you leave.

Hop aboard and start your next fishing adventure with AbbyLiFishing!
