Fluke

Summer Flounder or Fluke as they are commonly referred to are flatfish that inhabit our local bays and ocean waters. They can reach up to 26lbs but the average weight is between 1-3lbs. We target fluke from Spring to early Fall. Fluke fishing is a great activity for beginner to expert anglers.

Black Sea Bass / Porgy

Black Sea Bass and Porgy (also known as Scup) are frequently targeted together as they both prefer to inhabit Reefs, Wrecks, and Rocky Bottoms. Trips targeting these species are often referred to as Bottom Fishing or Wreck Fishing and almost exclusively take place out in the ocean. Trips for these fish also make a great activity for beginners as they can be easily caught and usually make for a very active fishing experience.

Blackfish_2020

Blackfish

Blackfish (also know as Tautog) prefer to inhabit Reefs, Wrecks, and Rocky Bottoms where they like to hide deep within. Blackfish are typically targetted in the Fall. Blackfish can be a tricky fish to catch as they are easily spooked and when this happens they retreat into hiding however this also makes them a very enjoyable and rewarding experience to catch them, they are also a very strong fish for their size.

Striped Bass

Striped Bass are typically targeted by us in the Fall as the weather gets cooler. Striped Bass that we see range in size from 20-40lbs but its not uncommon to catch them even larger. Due to their size they are an extremely exciting fish to target and when they are around they can be very abundant!
