Welcome aboard Carolann P Fishing Charters, operating out of Freeport, New York. This professional sportfishing service offers a variety of trips to suit every angler and – most importantly – has the skills and knowledge to make sure you get the best out of your time on the water. Join Captain Ray and his qualified crew to have your own trip of a lifetime.

Captain Ray is a 3rd generation angler with over 40 years of experience, and his top notch mates all hold their own master mariners licenses and are first aid trained. Safety is a priority on this vessel, with top of the range electronics fitted on board.

Depending on which trip you choose, you’ll be able to target a huge range of species, from Striped Bass and Flounder to Bluefin Tuna and White Marlin. While Captain Ray has vast experience in big game fishing, he welcomes anglers of all abilities on board so they can get a taste of his passion for the water. Come and experience reeling in your first Striped Bass or watching a mighty Mako Shark jump at the end of your line.

You’ll spend your trip on Ray’s recently restored boat, the “Christine P.” The vessel’s twin 315 HP Yanmar engines will have you on the fish in no time. She is a fast and spacious vessel with plenty of seating, fitting up to 6 anglers on most trips and with a maximum of 4 on extended big game fishing trips.

This boat is great for those who wish to fish in comfort. There is a full galley, air conditioning, TV, DVD, microwave, restroom, shower, and bunk beds all on board.

All your fishing equipment is included, and it’s all tournament quality. There’s also a special video system on board to record all your catches, so you won’t miss a thing! Capt. Ray suggests bringing your own camera to catch that moment as well.

Back on the dock, Capt. Ray and his crew will also fillet and bag your catch. You will just need to decide how to cook it later! He and the crew of Carolann P Fishing Charters can’t wait to welcome you aboard.
