Great crew and captain, courteous and helpful. The boat itself is very clean, even the bathrooms! They are knowledgeable of the local waters, and do their best to follow the fish, know what's biting as much as anybody can, and have the appropriate bait. Wonderful for first time fisherman, and good with kids, right there when you need them with help on how to bair, use the tackle, and help with getting the fish off the hook! Even if you don't like fishing, beautiful view of Long Island Sound, can go on upper deck, or stay inside the spacious cabin if you prefer, especially if weather is inclement.
For the first time being fishing with hubby and my 2 girls, this was an awesome experience; all credit to the captain and deck hands. The boat was very spacious and clean. Kyle and Kevin were so patient, by taking the time to teach us how to use the rod and looked after us during the whole time. Kevin really cared and encouraged the kids and we all caught 15 porgies. Seeing their faces were priceless. They are a first class crew running a first class service to their customers. Well done guys. We'll definitely be back.
Had a great day on the Middlebank II yesterday with my two younger boys. 1st time we've fished with them...we had a great time, excellent crew (even the two youngest!), lots of fun and laughter...caught lots of porgies, sea bass, sea robins, a dog fish and a couple crabs...we ended up bringing home a little over 3lbs of fresh fillets at the end of the day...
One of the best boats we've ever been on and would highly recommend them..I know I will be back next time with all 4 of my boys
Hats of to the captain and crew first time out with them and won't be the last. Very devoted to there customers boat is clean service is aces caught a bunch of fish today and had a blast. I did both the day and afternoon trip and both were a success captain is great mates top notch
Thanks again for a great trip see ya again soon
Kyle and the captain were extremely helpful. We had a great time, and will definitely be back. Kyle was personable and was right there once a fish was on deck:) Especially cool that we went through Long Island sound. We had plenty of opportunity to catch porgy and sea bass. Highly recommend this place.
Group of 5 went for the Monday morning Porgy SeaBass and even a few "Fluke" Fish. We happen to pull up all the above today. The weather was on point and made for a beautiful day... Awesome and Helpful mates decent fishing. We couldn't have asked for a better time. We have been out with them before and will be back for more. Fish On!
Took an AM trip, a ladies night trip, and an open boat evening trip all this week. All of the crew were very helpful getting fish in the boat, clearing tangles and back lash, keeping us with fresh bait and taking pictures for us. Clean boat and ladies bathroom. Snacks available on board for a charge. Could go up stairs to enjoy the sunshine and breeze or stay inside at deck level if you'd had enough. Great job filleting our mixed catch of sea bass and porgies and commiserating with us for the shortie fluke, bass, and porgy that had to go back for another day as well as the sea robins we didn't want. Would highly recommend them - kids age 9 and up on the boat and all caught something and had fun as did all the adults! Thanks for some great
Had the pleasure of going on the Saturday afternoon trip with my 2 sons and their friend for my birthday / fathers day weekend.Capt Tim,Capt Stephanie and crew were a class act! The boat was very clean,the crew is very professional. They made a memorable trip for the 4 of us . Definitely going back this is the only open charter I use.Thanks for the memory Tim & Stephanie.
Started to fish on the Middlebank frequently this season. The captain and crew are excellent, the boat is very clean and comfortable and there is always a family atmosphere on board. The fishing is what you would expect, some days a grind and some days outstanding but you will almost always have some action. I think this is one of the best boats in southern New England.
Great fishing boat. Good for all experience levels. Big boat. They can provide you with all the gear you need to go home with dinner!! And they will even filet of for you too! Thanks for a great Sunday!
