This is a shorter trip for those who just want to get out and test the waters. Or for families with younger kids who want to try it out....Read More
Early season, May through the beginning of July, we stay in the back bays and chase flounder, stripers, blues, and weakies. Then, July through September we hit the reefs and other wrecks and lumps in the ocean for a variety of species. The trip is for one to six people, beginner to advanced, and children are always welcome.
Captain Frank writes: "I grew up fishing the beach, back bays, sod banks, and jetties. Tagging along with my dad to catch the smaller fish he would use as bait for the bruisers cruising past was how I cut my teeth. From there I began fishing with friends on their boats, from docks and bridges, or off the sod banks. These early adventures stayed with me. They shaped who I became and how I fished. On the rare occasion I skipped school, it was to fish. And honestly, more than one sick day has been spent with a fishing rod in hand....Read More
Today I run my guided fishing excursions with those adventures from the past in mind. I try to share my passion for fishing with everyone who comes out with me. I share my experience, my knowledge, and joy of the pursuit of fish. As a teacher, I know I have the ability to express the intricacies of fishing to anyone, regardless of age or experience.
Regardless of whether you are a novice who might be curious about a certain way to fish, or a seasoned angler looking for a trip out, I can accommodate you. We go where the fish are!"

Had a good morning fishing with Capt Frank. Great communication the days leading up to our trip, offering flexibility with changing conditions. Conditions were pretty slow, but Frank moved us around all morning trying his hardest to get us on fish. A great dude with patience and a good sense ...Read More of humor. We got into a bunch of small black sea bass, a couple short fluke and some skates, but unfortunately nothing of size to bring over the rail. Capt mentioned the persistent south wind keeping water temps low for a lot of the season, but we tried our best. Would def recommend, and hope to be back next season.

My sincerest gratitude to Captain Frank for making our first family fishing trip an amazing experience. He was wonderful with my two boys and I could not have asked for a better time. I highly recommend Captain Frank!

Had a good time with Captain Frank. He changed our time to get us better fishing. Was a slow day but we shared stories and caught some fish. Overall it was a good day on the water.

Had a great time out on the boat. He brought us to some good wrecks where we were able to hook into fish. Boat was comfortable for all 6 of us and road great. No complaints.
