Captain Bob of the Sunbeam Fleet reports, “We saw excellent fishing again this week for striped bass. Easy limits were caught all week but were a little tougher on the weekend due to weaker tides. Both sides of the week still saw nice fish with the biggest being a 42-incher. We also saw our first bluefish this season mixed in with some of the bass. We should be seeing more and more as time goes on and the summer progresses. We will be sailing for fluke every Wednesday for an All Day trip at 7 a.m. We will also be running Half Day trips, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Our Sunset Stripers trips start this Friday, May 24th, and every Monday and Friday at 4 p.m. Reservations are required for all Sunset Stripers trips. We will be running a special Memorial Day Porgy trip at 7 a.m. on Monday, May 27th as well. Reservations for the Open Party Boat and Private Charters can be booked online or by giving us a call.”

Captain Bob of the Sunbeam Fleet reports a great first week of fishing for blues and bass. We saw limits being caught on Friday and Sunday with stripers up to 42 inches! We also had some good luck porgy fishing in the Peconic Bay this Saturday with a good amount of porgues and some jumbo ones mixed in. Starting next week, we will be running our fluke fishing trips every Wednesday and our bass and blues trips every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Reservations for all trips are highly recommended. Our charter boats, which carry up to 15 passengers, are great for corporate outings, bachelor and bachelorette parties, team building exercises, and more. In order to secure prime days for private charters (6-80 passengers) whether it is just family, friends or team building, you may book online or contact the office. We will try to accommodate any special dates or requests to the best of our ability. Reservations for the Open Party Boat and Private Charters can be be booked online or over the phone.

Captain Bob of the Sunbeam Fleet reports, “Decent porgy fishing this week. We headed to the Peconic Bay this past Saturday and saw a good amount of keepers with most being jumbos. We'll be heading back to the Peconic Bay on May 11th for one more weekend porgy trip before the regular season gets underway. Our first fluke trip is this Wednesday, May 8th at 7 a.m. Our first ‘blues and bass’ trip will be starting May 10th and will be sailing every Friday, Saturday and Sunday throughout the month. Our Private Charter boats, the Sunbeam VI and the Grumpa, are booking up fast so make sure to reserve prime dates now! For more information, you can look us up on the web at www.sunbeamfleet.com or give us a call!”
