Rockfish Charters

2150 Emmons Avenue
Brooklyn NY, United States

Rockfish Charters provide top of the range Striped Bass fishing charters in the New York Bight area. Operating out of a central Brooklyn location, they are ideally situated to provide trophy Bass fishing trips just minutes away from the buzz of the city. The outfit caters for anglers of all abilities, from families and novices to the most ‘hardcore’ of anglers. Their levels of professionalism and consistency are hard to beat, and have earned them a glowing reputation in the local area.

Rockfish Charters specialize in live bunker fishing for trophy Striped Bass, which is one of the most exciting ways of fishing for this prized sport fish. Their charters commonly involve limiting out on fish weighing from 20 lbs - 40 lbs, with 50 lb plus fish not uncommon at certain times of the year. Most of these trips run from the middle of April to the end of July, although there are exciting fishing opportunities year round in this diverse fishery.

You will be fishing aboard a sturdy H & H Marine boat that is perfect for up to six anglers to fish from. It was recently restored to make sure it is in the best possible working order, and it features the full range of marine electronics as well as a live bait tank and a covered cabin to protect you from the elements. Powered by a 450 HP Cummins engine, it will make short work of the ride to the fishing grounds, and the wide deck space will give you ample space to bring in that trophy Striper.

Throughout your trip you will be accompanied by USCG licensed captain Rich and his experienced and personable first mate Felix.The atmosphere on board is friendly and professional, and children are especially welcome. All the equipment you will need throughout your trip is included in the charter rate, including fishing licenses for all anglers.
