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)??

Now that you mention it and I look back at the pict, it does...

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've caught a lot of big bass on spinnerbaits over the years and I wanted to share one simple tip that is often overlooked when fishing spinnerbaits or really any bait in general when targeting big bass.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-PDaV8byhw

    • Thanks for the info, I will give them a call.
    • The one thing I can think of that your son could have done differently is that maybe he should have got a name from the land owner and sought out the other hunter for a discussion before hand. The hunting woods are a much safer place when everyone hunting the area knows the whereabouts and plans of each other hunter in the woods.   That's not to say that the other 50 year old guy isn't being an unreasonable, entitled, first class a hole but part of this may be due to a misunderstanding if there was not a discussion prior to hunting season. 
    • I agree with you 100%. If it were me who had the permission to hunt I would approach things differently but when my son is involved I would back down and use it as a learning lesson. I would however tell the lady that your son is not going to be hunting her land and the exact reason why. If it were my land, I would want to know.
    • Horns make some otherwise normal people crazy. I'm not a horn hunter myself and that is one reason why.  
    • Dang what a shame not cool at all. I agree with leech. That’s more than enough acreage for more than one hunter to hunt. If he had the guts to go talk to the neighbor lady and she was fine with it then all is good. If this “kid” ( old guy) has an issue with it then he needs to grow up It’s not his land. Not many kids even hunt anymore so the fact that he wants to is great. Let him hunt some and if it continues to be an issue then maybe just tell him to pull the plug? I’m also dealing with some crazy neighbors right now that continue to feed. The CO has been out many times and they still do the same thing tickets have been given and there’s been some talking. I hate to “ tadle” on others but when people think they have rights that others shouldn’t have then that’s where a CO may come into play. Not saying you need to do this but if he comes barging to the door and demanding your son leave then maybe something needs to change and maybe he shouldn’t be allowed there. 
    • Leech- I thought about that same thing.  I do not know the guy or the family, so unsure of what the dynamic is there.    Thanks for the responses.  We are going to head over there this evening and talk with the lady. My plan is take it down either way.  If she says he can still hunt, and boot the other guy, or even let them both hunt i dont think if the experience is going to be anything we are looking forward to dealing with.  We have 10 acres at our house he's hunting too, and going to do some more knocking on doors.  I get being protective over his "spot". It just bothers me that he would be so unwilling to allow a 15 yr old to experience what he clearly loves to do.  Life will go on.  We will be in Montana in Oct, chasing elk and mule deer. He wont be missing out!  Those bucks are roaming the river bottom we live on, maybe the ultimate revenge will be having a chance to shoot one of them on our own land we are grooming for wildlife together.
