No experience necessary - Capt. Elija will happily show everyone his secret techniques to help land you your trophy catch or personal best.

Included in the price are top quality rods, reels and tackle. Plenty of live bait and lures are also included. Guests must have a valid NY fishing license before the trip, and are encouraged to bring personal snacks and drinks in a small cooler.
