Cortes Outfitters

Mill Basin
Brooklyn NY, United States

Cast your line into a full day or half day of adventure with Cortes Outfitters. If you want to bask in the scenery of Long Island’s stunning coastline while perfecting your light tackle or fly fishing skills in the company of an experienced guide, this is the outfit for you. Sit back, relax, and enjoy complimentary snacks as you journey in search of a fish to remember.

You will be fishing aboard a 22 ft Cape Craft boat, which offers a spacious and safe ride to up to three passengers plus the guide. Powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine, the boat features state of the art electronics, including a fishfinder and a chart plotter to get you on the fish. There is also a radio and CD player on board for your enjoyment.

During your trip you will fish for Striped Bass and Bluefish with a sea-savvy captain who will instruct in fly-tying and proper casting techniques and bottom bait fishing, as well as offering instruction in conventional fishing techniques. All the gear you will need is provided, and you will be able to make the most of the guide’s thorough knowledge of where the big fish bite.

The captain will contact you after booking to confirm your meeting location.
