Hop on board Push the Limit Sportfishing to see what Montauk’s waters have to offer. Whether you’re beginners looking to learn, veteran anglers looking to catch, or a family just looking for a day on the water, you’re sure to enjoy your experience. Captain Ben McCarron is an experienced professional who has been working on the water in Montauk since the age of 12.

Jump on the comfortable 28’ Topaz that accommodates up to 4 anglers with ease. Upgraded with the latest electronics to keep you safe and get you on the fish faster. The boat also has a full toilet for your comfort.

Ben customizes the trip for you, based on your experience level and what you want to catch. Stay inshore to cast at blitzing Striped Bass and False Albacore with light spinning tackle, drag baits on the bottom for Fluke, or load up on Porgies, Cod, and Sea Bass. You can head offshore to chum for Sharks as well as troll or jig and pop for Tuna and Mahi Mahi. Fishing tackle will always be provided but feel free to bring your own. Whatever you like this trip is based around your interest.

If you decide to keep your catch at the end of the day the crew will be happy to fillet and bag it up for you to take home for dinner!

Push the Limit also offers specialized night Bass trips. These offer anglers of all experience levels a chance to get out after dark and tangle with Striped Bass in the 25-50 pound range. Anglers will use a mixture of live and artificial baits to get the bite. Night Bass trips are based strictly around the tide and may leave any time between sunset and sunrise.

On all trips anglers should bring their own snacks and drinks. It is also recommended they bring proper sun protection and footwear. Come enjoy a day out on the water in Montauk with the experienced crew at Push the Limit Sportfishing.
