Hop aboard a 24’ Key West which leaves out of Clinton, CT, and has plenty of room for 4 people to sit and/or lounge while soaking up the sun or reeling in dinner. This crew does not overcrowd their boat, so you can always enjoy a safe and comfortable ride. The boat is powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine and features all necessary navigational and safety gear.

Each trip is flexible when it comes to starting times. You can target Black Sea Bass, Porgy, Fluke, Striper, and Bluefish, which all require different bait, jigs, and techniques. We have the knowledge and experience as well as all the gear you will need to get you that rod bend every fisherman (or fisherwoman!) wants.

Captain Joe encourages you to bring the kids and help teach them the art and love of fishing on the ocean. These are experiences that will make lasting memories.

I have a love for the outdoors and especially fishing from CT trout streams to landing King salmon in upstate NY. Though nothing satisfies me more than being on the open water with the salt air, rod bend, and the fish finder beeping. It's magical! I have fished the Long Island sound for over 20 years, teaching my family and friends to enjoy this awesome fishery. I have always found joy in someone hooking a fish for the first time and landing a large blue or a large bucket mouth Black Sea Bass. We have a great fishery with large cow Stripers in spring to the fall run of fish feeding in frenzies for the fall migration.
