About our Fishing Trips
Targeted Species Description of Trip

" Best Bluefish Boat in the Business "

For generations the Brooklyn VI has been fishing for bluefish from Sheepshead Bay, and this experience nearly guarantees a great day of fishing. More often than not, the boat limits out, so Captain Rob picks the school with the largest size in the area on the day of your trip. Sometimes the schools hold fish in the 14 pound and up class. Chumming is very typical, however sometimes the schools are so thick, that drifting and jigging is the ticket. Either way, you could not pick a better bluefish boat to fish on. Captain Rob barely lets the bluefish rest, with 2 full 8 hour trips per day!

Our crew will offer to clean your fish on the way back home.

" Fill your Freezer "

Every year the Brooklyn VI finds the huge schools of Boston Mackerel during the 2 major runs, in December and April. The boat takes you to the grounds where the mackerel are so thick, that you will be catching 3,4 sometimes 5 at a time!. It is typical for mackerel fishing to be extremely productive, with catches as high as 300 or 400 fish per man during the trip. Get ready to be buried in your catch. If you have been mackerel fishing, then you know what to expect, but if you have never experienced it, make a point of fishing with Captain Rob during the mackerel run, for a fishing trip you will never forget!

We supply Rods & Reels for use, at no additional charge
Canyon TUNA fishing
" Travel to the Canyon in Style "

Starting in September, the Brooklyn VI schedules special overnight fishing trips to the various deep water Canyons, and this is the boat to take such a trip on. At 110 feet long, the vessel can comfortably handle almost any conditions safely. When other boats need to turn around and go home, the Brooklyn keeps on going, and gets you to the grounds where you fish for Yellowfin, Bluefin, Longfin, BigEye, Swordfish, Marlin & big Sharks. Reservations are required for all trips, and each trip is limited to only 30 persons. The cabin is wide and spacious, and we always cook real food in the galley, so just bring yourself, everything you need is already aboard. For more details, check out the "Offshore Fishing Checklist" on the Stella Maris Fishing Station website.

We use Clams for the Bottom Species. Green Crabs also available for Blackfish
Bottom Fishing

" Bottom Fishing for the Winter "

"The Freddy-C starts Bottom fishing shortly after Fluke season ends, each year. Theses trips start off with Porgy & Seabass, but soon turn into Blackfish & Ling by the end of the year. Blackfishing on the Freddy-C is a sure way to fill up your fishbox with plenty of delicious bottom fish. Captain Fred sails everyday during the winter for Blackfish or "Tog". No better way to spend a day-off fishing."

We provide plenty of Green Crabs for Tautog fishing!
