If you’re looking for the ultimate sportfishing adventure off the coast of Connecticut, come check out Starship Charters and let Captain Bill Lopes put you on delicious fish! Your guide for the day is a 100-Ton Master Captain with decades of experience fishing Long Island Sound and its surrounding estuaries and bays.

Capt. Bill invites you aboard his 41’ Hatteras saltwater fishing boat, equipped with state-of-art electronics, fishing tackle, and safety gear. She has downriggers and outriggers for trolling, a fighting chair for battling big game fish, and a flybridge so you can enjoy the beautiful view of the Sound.

The boat accommodates up to 6 guests per trip, featuring a spacious air-conditioned cabin with a kitchen, shower, private toilet, bed, and plenty of space to just kick back and relax. Capt. Bill welcomes families and kids of all ages to join in on the action but asks that parents bring their own kids’ life jackets.

You’ll explore eastern Long Island Sound, Block Island Sound, and Gardiners Bay to target a range of delicious species. The list includes Flounder, Striped Bass, Black Seabass, Porgy, Bluefish, and more. Capt. Bill also offers special Shark fishing trips, where you’ll battle against apex predators such as Thresher and Mako!

You’ll be provided top-notch rods and reels made by Penn, as well as live bait and lures. Your fishing license is covered by the boat and after the trip, the crew will offer to clean your catch so you can take it home and throw it on the grill!

All you need to bring with you is warm clothing, snacks, drinks, a camera, and any other personal items you need. Get ready for an incredible experience and book your next adventure with Starship Charters in Old Saybrook, CT!

Be mindful that, for the time being, there will be a fuel surcharge due to increased fuel prices!
