Fishing in Long Island

The largest and longest island on the whole US mainland, Long Island has been a fishing hotspot almost since the pilgrims arrived. Its four counties have something for all kinds of angler, with rich creeks and bays and access to the deep seas offshore. The best way to explore it all is on a Long Island fishing charter, which will give you the chance to hook the fish of your dreams.
 
All around the island, you’ll find bights, sounds, and bays full of prized inshore creatures. Fluke, Seabass, Scup, Bluefish, Weakfish, and Tautog are all available at different times of the year. But the real star of the show is Striped Bass, which grows to incredible sizes here. Cod and Pollock are possible further north, but all fish are subject to strict regulations. 
 
If offshore fishing is more your thing, then a full day adventure to the deep is in store. When summer hits, Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, and Kingfish are possible not too far beyond the bays. However, Tuna is the one to target – or ones to target! Yellowfin and Bluefin varieties promise to put up a real battle to make you work hard for your meat. 
 
All around the island, you’ll find harbors and marinas full of charter boats ready to take you out. Montauk on the easternmost point needs no introduction, while Babylon and Captree are home to the largest fishing fleets on the island. The Hamptons are also full of vessels, while Huntington in the north and Fire Island in the south also boast plenty. 
 

Rules & Regulations

Long Island fishing charters come with licenses covered for all aboard, so that’s one less thing to worry about. Your professional captain will also be up to date with all the latest size and bag limits, so you can focus on fishing.

Long Island Fishing Seasons

January

January is all about Cod fishing. You'll see anglers boarding party boats and heading out to sample these bottom dwellers. Some fishers manage to get Herring, but it's far from peak season.
 

February

Fishing off Montauk can get you a good number of Cod, however, you'll only notice a handful of captains to take you out. Wrap up warm before you hit the waters, as cold days can take you by surprise.

March

Warmer days are becoming more frequent, so you can fish without layering up. However, you still won’t find scores of saltwater fish this time of year. Maybe a trip to freshwater ponds is in order? 

April

With spring setting down on the beaches and in the parks, Striped Bass show up, with several keepers up for grabs. Flounder are a common target to fill the freezers, so get your fill! 

May

Striped Bass and Flounder are still the talk of the island as the warmer weather comes in. You may catch plenty of other creatures, but keep an eye out for what's in season! 

June

As the Eels invade these waters, Stripers come following, and so do Fluke and Bluefish. Rain can dampen the hype but, overall, you’ll find excellent fishing in the bays for the usual suspects.

July

The crowds gather to celebrate the Fourth of July, but the fishing also creates fireworks! Tuna and Sharks are now biting offshore, while Fluke, Seabass, and Stripers are biting inshore.

August

With summer fishing in full force, you'll find something biting no matter what technique you try. Bottom fishing produces Fluke, Porgy, and Seabass, while baitfish entice Bluefish and Stripers around the inlets.

September

Striped Bass, Gator Bluefish, and Albacore are a common sight around Long Island in September, while Seabass, Snapper, and Fluke are still going strong. When the weasther's nice, it doesn't get much better!

October

Albacore are working the beaches, while Striped Bass and massive Bluefish forage around the entire Island. Tautog will chomp on green crabs during their short season, so make the most of this limited chance!

November

The fall bite is in full swing, as Striped Bass reach incredible sizes and gobble down Eels. Trolling with bait produces a bigger catch, while jigging will get you schooling specimens. Try it all!

December

The cold weather and holidays keep anglers at home, which means that it may be difficult to find a charter. However, head to the bigger marinas, and you're sure to get your fill of Black Seabass and Cod.
