North Fork Adventures Charters

North Fork Adventures Charters invites you for a day on the water of Southold and Shelter Island, New York. The charter was formed to provide anglers with an exceptional customized experience on the local waters. It is operated by Captain Rob, who is a local angler in love with the thrill of fishing these waters.

Capt. Rob will show you how it’s done. With more than 30 years of experience, he knows exactly what works and when it works. He will take you out on his 25’ Parker walkaround boat, which provides an exceptionally comfortable ride. It is powered by two 150 HP Yamaha outboard engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots.

It has a deep-vee hull and a wide beam which both contribute to your enjoyment on the vessel, and its fishing platform will give you plenty of space and opportunities to catch the fish of your dreams.

The captain can take you on a customized fishing trip so you can target the species that you want to catch. Depending on the season, you can fish for Flounder/Fluke, Bluefish, Black Seabass, Tautog, Weakfish, Porgy, and Striped Bass.

Your trip starting times are flexible to suit your schedule as well as the tide cycle. This flexibility will give you the opportunity to maximize the fishing. The charter is made for a group of up to 6 anglers. Kids are most welcome so bring them along to learn about the greatness of the local fisheries and to experience a nice family bonding adventure.

Join North Fork Adventures Charters and experience some great fishing off the coast of New York!

What a Week for Weakfish
What a Week for Weakfish
July 7, 2021
What a week of fishing this week. The weakfish bite is hot right now. Most trips when the weather cooperates we are catching out limits of nice tide runner weakfish. Of course the other species are not disappointing - porgy's, blowfish, kingfish, and of course sand sharks round out the catches this week to make each day action packed on the water. Summer is here and the action is great- give a call and book a trip!

What a day yesterday, Weakfish boat limits for both my morning and afternoon charters. My morning trip I had the Asselte boys out. We started in drizzle, but finished with a full fish box. They managed a true mixed bag of jumbo porgys and a boat limit of weakfish. The afternoon trip for Peconic Water Sports fared just as well with a boat limit of weakfish, and bag of tasty fillets for the table. Come on out, book a trip, the fish are biting, and the weather is great.
