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.

    • Results are out!!    Did not pull a tag this year. Maybe a surplus tag in my future...
    • American Redstart was back and catching bugs by the hostas !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  (those ! are for you smurf ) He let me get pretty close. 
    • Congrats on MN and WI   It's been a great spring and the birds just seem to be getting fired up even more now.
    • could be interesting for ya!!!!!!!
    • I think I am done for the year.  Wisconsin was a success for me these past few days, but not so much for the rookies I took with.    I called in a nice 24lb bird with 1" sharp spurs and 10" beard on Friday.  The weather really shut them down after that.  Finally Sunday morning in the rain showers they came out and put on a show for four hours, but the big tom just would not come in close enough for a shot.  Hens dragged him by me one time with a few second opportunity to decide if I should try to stretch the range of my gun, but I held off thinking they would come a few steps further...  They did not...  He had spurs easily over 1", never gobbled, just strutted and drummed around the field all morning.        
    • Very nice birds!  
    • I'm going to hit it hard looking this week. I promised batter fried Morels for Memorial day lunch with the smoked pulled pork I made. 😬  
    • No luck with morels near La Crosse these past few days.  Found some ramps and lots of pheasant back / Dryad saddle.  
    • We finished up the seasons with 3 great birds. All 3 had 1 1/4 spurs 11 inch beards and one with 11.5. Two birds weighing in at 23 lbs and the other 22. This year we had gobbling like in the past . These last 5 years has been very minimal gobbling if none at all some years. This year was similar to when we started hunting these farms. The high predator population is why i think they do not gobble as much. Even this spring had a yote mess up a bird walking right in to me he was in killing distance but I was liking the show so let him keep coming my error. Yote came running in and chased him off :(. But we did end up shooting this bird Friday morning. So he only was saved once.   See what happens this weekend. I'm supposed to take a buddy out hunting in MN but if that falls through maybe make one more run to WI.
