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.

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.
