Rockaway Fishing Charters

When you think of New York City, you probably imagine bright lights, busy streets, and that world-famous skyline – however, Captain Tom LaCognata is here to show you a whole other side to the “Big Apple.” Join him on board Rockaway Fishing Charters, located in Brooklyn, where his mission is simple: “To put you on fish and make sure you have an enjoyable, comfortable, and safe time out on the water.”

Capt. Tom is a native New Yorker who’s been fishing for over 45 years. He’s explored many local fisheries, as well as those further afield, including Costa Rica, Mexico, and Aruba. He decided to turn his passion for angling into a career, and offers first-class fishing trips that are suitable for anglers of all ages and abilities, including children. They’re completely customizable, too – let him know what you want to hook, and he’ll take you to the hottest spots around!

You’ll be fishing from your captain’s 30’ Luhrs offshore sportfishing vessel, perfectly built to tackle the waters of Jamaica Bay, as well as the open ocean. She can accommodate up to 6 guests, so bring along the entire family, or settle some scores with your best angling buddies! On board, you’ll find a full toilet, top-of-the-line navigational gear, life jackets for all ages, a multi-media system, and outriggers for maximum fishability.

Capt. Tom caters his trips for all types of anglers, so there’s something to suit every skill level. Want to take your family on an unforgettable vacation? Spend the day Fluke fishing – these fish are plenty of fun to catch, and also make for tasty table fare! Want to hook some game fish? Get ready for plenty of rod-bending action as you chase Striper (Striped Bass), Bluefish, and more. For hardcore anglers, come face-to-gills with some impressive marine life as you target a variety of Shark species.

Your trip includes Penn, Shimano, and Daiwa rods and reels, bait, tackle, and a fishing license. Come aboard Rockaway Fishing Charters to see another side of New York!

Capt. Tom has been fishing for more than 45 years, so it's safe to say that he's got plenty of angling experience and knowledge under his belt! He's a local New Yorker, but has fished all over the States, as well as exploring the plentiful fisheries of Costa Rica, Mexico, and Aruba. He decided to turn his passion for angling into a career over 10 years ago, and has been running successful charters ever since. His favorite part of the job is seeing his customers have fun, and helping newbies and little ones learn the tricks of the trade. He loves helping kids reel in their first fish! Your captain also participates in tournaments, and won the prestigious Brooklyn Shark Tournament in 2016. As well as this, he has experience of battling seriously big game fish – he once hooked a whopping 500 lb Black Marlin, which took him 45 minutes to reel in!
