Nightjack Sportfishing

Nightjack Sportfishing invites you for a day full of adventure chasing fish in the abundant waters off the coast of Branford, Connecticut. Head into the Long Island Sound to peruse some rich and historical fishing waters. The charter is owned and operated by Captain John Alves who has fished since he was a child and loves spending every minute on the water. He enjoys taking new and returning guests out and showing them all the thrills these waters offer.

Capt. John will take you aboard the “Nightjack,” a 32’ Levy downeast, powered by a 330 HP Cummins engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 20 knots. She’s a huge Canadian-built boat known as a “Novi.” Known for their size and beams, Novis are incredibly sound and feature a half-enclosed cabin that will protect you come rain or shine, and comes fitted with a toilet. She can carry up to 6 anglers on inshore and offshore trips.

Set sail from the Branford Landing Marina and can head you along the inshore waters of the Long Island Sound and Thimble Islands. Here, you’ll target Tautog, Striped Bass, Fluke, Weakfish, and more. Or, take a trip offshore to find big game fish like Bluefin Tuna. You can also target the frightening Mako and Thresher Sharks, and, during the summer months, go after delicious Mahi Mahi.

Nightjack Sportfishing takes its fishing seriously. There is a fighting chair for you to battle the big fish, a livewell for bait, and all the USCG-approved safety equipment for when the waters get choppy. The whole family is welcome to see what real fishing is about, and Capt. John can’t wait to welcome you aboard again and again. Whichever trip you choose, you’re in for an unforgettable adventure.
