Fire Island Fishing Charters - 30'

Fire Island Fishing Charters combines four decades of experience on the waters around Long Island. Departing out of the Great South Bay, they will take you to the waters that are inviting to fish. Just think of Striped Bass, Mahi-Mahi, Tuna, Swordfish, Marlin, Shark, Fluke, Bluefish, and Weakfish!

Fire Island Fishing Charters will take you on a trip of a lifetime to the hottest places where the fish hang out. Hop onboard a 30’ Century center console and its superior twin 250 HP Yamaha outboards will battle with the waves to get you on top of hot fish. The captain has a perfect command of his Furuno, Garmin, and Horizon navigational electronics, as well as many other professional accessories. An oversized bait well is always full to make your hooks irresistible, a beautiful cabin can sleep 2 anglers that are exhausted from a long fight with fish. The long list of amenities goes on with an enclosed electric head, six gunwale rod holders, an entertainment table, and many more.

Fire Island Fishing Charters is perfect for those hardcore fisherman looking for the next trophy, novice fisherman looking to learn/grow and those just looking to spend quality time on the water. The crew have tailored a variety of packages to meet your specific needs, from a fun day close to the shore to an exciting adventure 50+ miles offshore.

You will be using top of the line rods, reels, and terminal tackle from brands like Penn, Ave, Okuma, Seeker, Star Rods, and Calstar. Captain Steve Smith offers exclusive custom lures and teasers that he made himself for the exact type of fishing you’ll be doing. You will be able to purchase them at a small extra cost. And if you want to battle with Tuna, your captain will provide the lures and teasers for free!

Test the waters of the beautiful historic Great South Bay, Atlantic coastal and offshore waters with Fire Island Charters and make a great catch possible!

Grew up in the great South Bay and have competitively fished Fire Islands inshore, coastal and offshore waters for 20 years. After years of catering to friends and family and seeing the excitement and joy on each person's face as they continuously caught trophy fish over the years, I have decided to start my own business.
