Help For a Midwestern Traveler

Recommended Posts

I will be accompanying my wife on her first business trip to NYC the last week in March. I have some time to kill during the day and am considering the viability of hopping on a party boat. I can't budget in a charter, but figured a spot on a party boat would land in the $30-$50 range.

A: Is that even an option at that time of time of year?

B: Can anyone point me in the direction of a good place or help me avoid a bad one?

Any help would be appreciated.

The guys on this site are mostly from central NY and about 5+ hours from the city, so unless you get lucky, I don't think we have any info to pass on. You might want to just check the internet and hope for some customer ratings. First trip to NYC . . . do some sight seeing, it will be worth it. Madison Square Gardens, Brooklyn Brewery, Grand Central Station, Statue of Liberty. Times Square. . .that should fill up a half day.

Thanks for the reply. I have 3 days of sight seeing planned and then 3 days open. I guess I'll find some phone numbers and make some calls.

This time of year most are fishing cod off Montauk (eastern end of Long Island) this is 2 hr 45 to 3 hrs from NYC. Most of the boats around NYC go out of Sheepshead Bay Brooklyn I believe this time of year for flounder?? I would do a google search and see what you find or noreast.com . I have only fished NY salt with the Captree Princess out of south shore long island about 1.5 hrs from NYC (although I think they are in Montauk Cod fishing this time of year)

I'm going to try visiting Sheepshead Bay tomorrow morning and see what is there for options. After 3 days of concrete, I can't wait for some water. I'll post my findings

I took a party boat out of Sheepshead Bay on Thursday. Fishing was slow but steady. The boat took about a dozen cod, about a dozen dogfish, a decent number of ling (maybe an average of 4-6 per person), one mackerel and a few blackfish. It was great to meet a bunch of nice people and enjoy some warm (though foggy) weather.

Thanks, New York!full-34532-19017-ling.jpg

Did you take your dramamine pills? The last time I went, I swear I was about to jump off the boat! Nice report!

Maybe I'm just weird but doesn't that pic look like it's from the seventies (including some of the people in in)??

It does look like it was from the seventies, but I sure wasn't this old back then. The sea was so calm that I couldn't imagine having trouble with it, but one young woman hurled.

    • I never said that at all but my choice of "grill" or "smoker seems to bother you for some reason.   It's OK if you are a little bit jealous of my pellet smoker.....    
    • How does the cold smoke accessory work? I wouldn't fathom doing any this time of year or does it have a built in ice tray to keep foods cool?. If not any grill or smoker would do the trick in the cold. I'm with others,  having room to hang for long smokes works the best. It is a nice concept though.
    • The fatty was good! Got up at 6:30 am Friday morning to put it on the pellet grill.    
    • Ants are just trying to make a livin.
    • Buy an ant moat. Feeder hangs underneath it. Ants can’t cross the water. While I have never used this, I used to put my cup of grape jelly on a small plate, filled with water. Never had a problem with ants. So, in theory, the moat should work just the same.
