North Fork Light Tackle Charters services the entire East End of Long Island (North Fork & Hamptons) and can design a trip to best fit your location and preferences.
Late April - June:
We begin the season targeting striped bass along the shorelines and in the creeks of Peconic Bay. We can find big fish laying in less than two feet of water!
We also focus on the ocean-fed Shinnecock Bay. A flats fishing haven, we can find striped bass in shallow water on sandy flats, ideal for ultra-light spin fishing and fly fishing. There's always resident bluefish and fluke in the flats to offer the Shinnecock Bay grand slam.
July - August:
While Shinnecock continues to produce great fishing all summer, we also focus on the waters around Orient Point, Plum Island, Gardiners Island and Fishers Island, fishing a variety of rips, rocky or sandy shorelines and sandy shoals. We can find bass of all sizes and voracious gator bluefish.
September - November:
Once fall arrives we focus on partaking in the storied Fall Run in the Long Island Sound, Gardiners Bay, Shinnecock Inlet/Ocean and off Montauk, as schools of false albacore, bonita, striped bass, bluefish and Spanish mackerel feed on small bait fish. Every fisherman has to experience casting to water boiling with feeding fish!
I provide quality spinning and fly reels, rods (including Van Staal, Daiwa and Temple Fork Outfitters) and a full assortment of tackle. If you would like to bring your own, you are more than welcome to. I am very flexible with putting a trip together, so give me a call at 631-521-1640 and we can put together a memorable trip!
