2017 Offshore Trip Descriptions

38 Hour Tile Express
This trip will be a full day of fishing on the Golden Tilefish grounds that we normally fish on our 3 day trips. Excellent opportunity for deep water fishing and all within a day! It will be about 12 hours to the fishing grounds, 12 hours of fishing and 12 hours back to the dock.

28 Hour Tile/Hake
This trip will be a shorter ride to the fishing grounds and a full day of fishing for Tilefish, Hake and more from sun up to sundown.

2 Day Wreck Trip
Two full days of fishing wrecks as far away as 150 miles, in depths from 250 to 500 feet in search of Tile, Cod, Pollack, and other wreck dwellers.

Deep Deep Hake/Tile – Electric Reels Strongly Recommended
A true exploratory trip…we will be fishing very deep water wrecks in 1000 – 1500 feet of water…pushing the limits once again!

George’s Bank Cod
Located 120 miles east of Montauk, the western edge is where we find an abundance of bait life such as herring and mackerel. This is where Cod, Haddock and Pollack school up for feeding. During the spring months of May and June the past few years, Cod have made a strong comeback.

Captain Steven 2 Day Deepwater Exploratory Trip
Last year we went FAR and DEEP, and this year we will do the same. Bring the heavy tackle and the electrics – we will again go exploring new deep water grounds.

Tile/Cod Wrecks
Day 1 will be spent fishing the canyons for Golden Tilefish, along with Hake and Cusk. On Day 2 we will fish the wrecks for Cod and Pollack.

New for 2017 Capt. Steven’s “Fathoms” Trip
Fishing deeper than EVER before! Using advanced fishing tackle, this trip opens the door to explore depth and areas Captain Steven has been driving over for years! Depths of 150-300 fathoms (900-1,800 feet) fishing on wrecks, cracks, and sea mounts Capt. Steven has been itching to try. Electric reels are a MUST with a backup battery with at least 1000 yards of 60 lb braided line (or heavier) with 80lb (or heavier) top shot recommended. Sinkers up to 7 lbs, hooks 9/0 or bigger, 250lb 3 way swivels, and 130lb minimum leader. Hand crankers are welcome. Remember there are no jewelry stores on the ocean floor! Think simple when making rigs! ULTRA LIMITED TO 15 PASSENGERS

XXXL Tile Hunt NO ELECTRICS
This trip will target large tiles in search of a new world record, so no electric reels will be allowed. We will be looking for very large Tilefish for the entire trip. Build your Guns of Steel!

2 Day Nantucket Jumbo Fluke
The Nantucket Shoals are world-famous for the jumbo fluke that can be found here. We will work these very productive areas hunting for trophies.

Cod/Fluke Special
Day 1 will be spent on George’s Bank fishing for Cod, Pollack and Haddock. On Day 2 we will work the Nantucket flats and shoals for the nice sized fluke.

Abyss Tile/Cod/Halibut/Fluke
Day 1 we will get going early with a stop on the inshore fluke grounds. Day 2 we will be fishing deep water drops and will focus on Tile, Hake, Cusk, Wrecks and Barrelfish. Day 3 will be spent fishing for Cod and Pollack along with a Halibut Hunt! On Day 4 we will head to Nantucket/Martha’s Vineyard for a Fluke Trophy Hunt!

4 Day Full Moon Sword/Big Eye Hunt
We will be taking advantage of the Full Moon bite when historically Swordfish and Big Eye Tuna are on the feed! Bring your lightsticks and heavy stand up gear for the night bite, and your big trolling lures, Joe Shute Lures, and ballyhoo for daytime trolling.

2 Night Tuna
Two full nights of fishing providing more time to increase your chances at catching Tuna, Swordfish, and Mahi Mahi!

3 Day TNT
2 Full days of bottom fishing for Golden Tilefish during the day (weather permitting) and 1 1/2 nights of tuna/swordfishing.

4 Day Full Moon Sword/Tuna/Tile
We will be taking advantage of the Full Moon when the Swordfish bite is historically ON! We have seen trips in years past with over 25 swordfish bites in one night! We will also be bottom fishing during the day (weather permitting) for Golden Tilefish. 2 ˝ nights of fishing with 2 Full days of bottom fishing!

4 Day New Moon Sword/Tuna Tile
We will be taking advantage of the New Moon which has also proven to yield great catches of tuna and swordfish! We will also be bottom fishing during the day (weather permitting) for Golden Tilefish. 2 ˝ nights of fishing with 2 Full days of bottom fishing!
