Midnight Fleet - Midnight Star

Emmons Avenue
Brooklyn NY, United States

Midnight Fleet invites you aboard the Midnight Star for a premier fishing experience in Brooklyn, New York. The charter operates out of Sheepshead Bay and into the most productive waters of the open ocean. Sheepshead Bay is a bustling neighborhood just an hour from Manhattan where anglers can enjoy first class fishing right by the world’s biggest metropole.

Sheepshead Bay offers the chance of targeting a variety of fish species to be caught throughout the year. Striped Bass come into season in June and are present until Fall. The high season for Fluke is April and May; Bluefish, Porgy, Cod, and Ling come into season in late Summer and are available all through the Fall months and until the beginning of December.

Midnight Fleet will take you out on their 70-foot Hawkers Island saltwater fishing boat powered by two 650 HP Detroit engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 13 knots. This boat is a serious fishing machine that provides anglers with space and comfort, offering indoor and outdoor spaces. The boat is fully equipped with the safety and navigation equipment which ensure a safe and productive trip, and features a toilet for your convenience.

The crew of the Midnight Star can provide rods, reels, tackle, and live bait, and you will have a first mate on board to help you reel in your catch. The fishing license is included too, so all you have to bring is a cooler with ice for your catch. Midnight Fleet offers private charters for groups of up to 60 persons, and shared trips for smaller groups who want to share their experience with others.

We loved the experience. Only issue was that we honestly did not know that if you had an issue with your pole,  you had to pay the crew extra.  If you want your catch cleaned and cut it would be 1.00 a fish.  But we loved it.  Will do again.  Awesome crew.

My daughter had a smile on her face. She caught fish. She wants to do it again.
Thank you.
