I was on a charter last week for blackfish on the Island Current out of City Island. We did well with the blackfish and then diamond jigged before heading back to the dock for about half an hour. We had a steady pick of blues and a couple stripers thrown in the mix. I remember the captain saying he had an open day this weekend coming because somebody cancelled. The number is 917-417-7557. The boat fits about 20. The Captains name is Chris.
Check out Capt Anthony at Jamaicabaycharters.com He is a friend of mine and will put you on the fish. If the conditions are not fishable, he will not take you for a ride. Right now there is plenty of bass in the relatively protected waters of Jamaica Bay.
