Fortuna Fishing Charters

41 River Road
Sayville NY, United States

Sailing from Sayville, New York, Fortuna Fishing Charters fish the Great South Bay and are happy to pick their customers up from any point on Fire Island. As well as offering fishing charters, they also run a transport service between Fire Island and the mainland, and they can also provide relaxing cruises around the local waterways.

The Fortuna is a sturdy 31 ft Downeaster boat that can comfortably take up to six guests fishing. Powered by a big Cummins Turbo Diesel engine, the boat is equipped with all the necessary navigational electronics including a fishfinder, and there is all the appropriate safety gear on board. Only the very best fishing gear is taken on board, with brands such as Shimano and Penn making up the collection.

A wide variety of fish can be targeted with Fortuna Fishing Charters, with springtime being best for Flounder and Blackfish, early summer targeting Fluke, Striped Bass, and Bluefish, and later summer being best for Weakfish. Captain Steve Dunn will guide you expertly around the fishing grounds in search of the best catches for the season, and he will provide equipment and instruction in techniques such as trolling, bottom fishing, jigging, and popping.
