Enjoyed a fantastic day on the water with Captain Alan. My son and I had a great time fluke fishing and even managed to catch a few keepers. Despite some windy conditions, we had a wonderful morning. Looking forward to returning this fall for some exciting Striper fishing.

Last-minute decision to hit the water with Captain Al for a half-day. We chatted the day before, he gave us the lowdown on the plan and checked out the weather scene. Rolled out with my two boys, 15 and 18, braving some tricky winds. Despite the odds, we reeled in a decent haul of blues and fluke. Captain Al was awesome with the boys, dishing out patience and even throwing in some impromptu lessons. Had a blast with him - constant search for fish, good talks, and definitely gonna do it again. Big thanks, Al! The boys and I had a real good time!

Fishing with Captain Alan was a great experience for our family. We all had a good time catching plenty of fish, starting with stripers and bluefish early on, and then going after fluke later in the trip. Captain Alan's knowledge of the area was impressive, and he put in the effort to take us to the best fishing spots.
