Grand Slam Charters Montauk, NY

Grand Slam Charters target all inshore species, including Cod, Striped Bass, Flounder and Black Seabass, depending on the season, and offer a variety of trip lengths to suit your taste and ambition.

You will be fishing aboard a 35 ft T Jason Downeast, a sturdy and hardy vessel perfect for fishing the harsh North Atlantic seas. She is powered by a 420 HP CAT engine and cruises at a maximum of 21 knots.

On board you will find GPS, fishfinder, a head and a bed, and up on deck you will be supplied with everything you will need for your day out, including a choice of lures and live bait, and top-of-the-line tackle for a variety of fishing techniques including heavy and light tackle, spinning, trolling and bottom fishing. There will also be a top quality first mate aboard who will help keep you hooked up all day long.

Captain Tom Mikoleski is a seasoned captain and angler who has been fishing since he was a kid and has literally written the book on Bass fishing. He has had a lifelong obsession with fishing, especially for Bass, and loves nothing more than to help others develop their skills, or help experienced anglers land their personal best. He is dedicated to ensuring the best possible catch and prefers to sail according to tidal movement in order to do so.  He and his crew prides themselves on always being courteous and professional.

A person is very lucky if they love their job. I'm pleased to say, I'm now a very lucky person because I run the Montauk charter boat Grand Slam. This was not always the case because for 20-years previous I was a member of two New York City Law Enforcement Departments. This initial career choice may have delayed "my luck" for a period of time, but being "on the job" gave me the opportunity to retire at a relatively young age. So, in 2006 I switched professions to pursue my long simmering obsession with the striped bass. An obsession with a fish may seem strange to normal people. However, in my world, it was destiny a long time coming.
