Connecticut Island Outfitters Charters is based in Westport. Its many acres of skinny flats, reefs, and rips make the area one of the best fishing destinations for the most passionate anglers all around the world. With Connecticut Island Outfitters, you will be able to enjoy sight-casting in as little as a foot of water.

Join the team aboard their 22 ft Ranger boat, powered by a 250 HP Yamaha 4 stroke engine. “Ranger” can comfortably accommodate up to four people. It is rigged with navigational electronics, including a GPS, a fish finder, and a VHF radio, as well as a remote controlled 80 lb thrust trolling motor.

During a trip of your choosing, you will be fishing in shallow salt water along the shoreline and islands of the Western Connecticut coast. A day out with the team will see you targeting Striped Bass, Bluefish, Little Tunny, and Scup.

Top-brand rods, reels, tackle, lures, and fishing licenses will be provided by the crew. But you may also bring your own fishing equipment if you want. The Captain advises you to use sinking lines for the best productivity. You will be offered refreshing drinks and if you want to have lunch during your trip, you will need to inform the captain in advance.

Connecticut Island Outfitters begins the season in May and it goes on through November. Join in the game of stealth and you will have a memorable day out on the waters.

Roger took out me and my two boys for a half day trip. Boat was immaculate and convenient, and. We caught porgy, striper, and fluke and we all had a great day.

Knowledgable and friendly captain that not only puts you on fish but teaches you the ins and outs of why the fish are there and what they’re feeding on. Not only accommodated my needs for spinning gear but later helped me to catch my first ever saltwater fish on the fly, a striped bass. Definitely recommend booking a trip with connecticut island outfitters!

Congrats on your first fish on salty fly Sam.  Great job casting a 9 weight for the first time! Also, congrats to Noah on his first keeper of the season.
