Local Fishing
may appear less competitive than the bigger game of offshore fishing but we will allow you to experience the best of the shallow waters by catching fishes that are in abundance during a particular season.


Striped bass are abundant from late spring until mid December, while you will have your chance to catch other species like Fluke, Blue fish, Mackerel, Black Fish, Flounders, Porgies, Green Bonito, Cod and a host of other types without going offshore depending on the season that you will choose to spend inshore fishing in Montauk.


On the other hand, offshore fishing, often referred to as big game fishing, will take the expert sportfishing enthusiasts towards the deep current of the ocean. With the state-of-the-art equipments aboard the Blue Fin IV, you'll be ready to tackle the deep ocean species like dolphins, giant tuna, blue marlin, and shark. The success of your sportfishing excursion will depend on the season when you chose to sail.
