Wonderful Day

I have been fishing with the Sunbeam Fleet for over 15 years and have always had a great experience and never came home empty-handed. Captain Matt is extremely knowledgeable about the fishing waters on the Sound. He never hesitates to change fishing tactics or move on to different areas on the water. This trip we landed over 30 stripers!

Lots of Fun

Our FFA chapter takes this trip every May and this was our best year ever! 22 people caught 74 stripers (4 keepers!) and we had a perfect weather day! The mates Steve and Kiwi were THE BEST! They worked well with many first-time teenage fishermen/women and had a great sense of humor and professionalism. We will be back again next year!

Always a Great Time

Fishing on any of the Sunbeam Fleet boats will bring you fun, relaxation, comfort...and almost always fish! From porgies to black sea bass to blackfish to blues to trophy strippers, the Sunbeam Fleet team will teach you and improve your fishing skills. The mates are friendly, helpful, and genuinely happy when you land fish! Highly recommend!
