Last year, we went to half day fishing trip in Long Island and everyone had great time. Let's do it again in the beautiful City Island.  

Come aboard the Island Current Fleet for a unique day of bottom fishing JUMBO PORGIES! Great for baking, broiling, or grilling, porgies are a special delicacy fish found in the coastal waters of the Atlantic. As fun to catch as they are good to eat, porgies range in weight from ½ lb to a huge 4 1/2 lbs.

Captain Chris, owner of Island Current Fleet, has been fishing the waters of the Long Island Sound for 24 years. He and his knowledgeable crew will take you on an extraordinary daytime fishing trip that will show you New York City from a completely different angle. Enjoy their top of the line equipment and expert advice on fishing techniques.
On this 8-hr angling adventure, you will:

  • Search for these slender, oval-shaped fish that are both plentiful and delicious!  
  • Enjoy superior service and instruction from an expert crew that will guide you to a successful fishing experience.
  • Learn all kinds of fishing techniques, tackle rigging, bait selection, netting or gaffing, and even top of the line fish cleaning.

Come on, come all - all ages and levels of experience are welcome aboard the Island Current Fleet. You don't want to miss this one of a kind day of fun!

Trips will last 8 hours, giving you plenty of time to catch as much as possible!

    Jack, If you don't have enough car finally, I can be a back-up car and pick up people in Flushing. The port is not that far away from Flushing. Just make sure I can get enough tolls and gasoline for the extra trip. Please do let me know at least a day or the night before if you can =P

    Yes, I can do it. I'll RSVP tomorrow, after I check my schedule first- family have priority.

    Still debating on should I go or not, have two morning meetups back to back. Unless, you REALLY need a driver that can take 4 passengers on that day- then I'll go.

    Jack, I requested a refund but the system said it was an error. Did you get it?

    May 3, 2011

  • Jack W

    Ok, Calvin. I will let you know.
    Elaine - I don't think it is convenient to get there by public transportation. We usually meet up at midtown, I will finalize it and arrange carpool when closer to the event date.
