Me and my two children had a blast, we wanted to catch Bluefish and boy did we.  Captain John & Captain Dave had us catching non-stop!  I was so impressed with how they took the time explaining their many techniques for finding bait, locating and catching fish, etc. Not only was it a awesome learning experience, it was fun too!  I would highly recommend Long Run Fishing Charters!!!

I had SUCH a great time with captain John & Dave! We caught a bunch of blues, which was awesome because it was my first time catching them. Not only did I feel awesome reeling them in, but they also helped me improve my cast, which I think was the best thing I was able to take away from the trip. I will definitely be going out with them again!
