Reel Cast Charters
Reel Cast Charters is a full-time Connecticut-based sport fishing guide service specializing in the Connecticut waters of Long Island Sound. Our fishing guide service is unique in the fact that we do much of our fishing in shallow waters with light tackle. Reel Cast Charters has carved a niche for itself in Northeast sport fishing, providing an experience to anglers like no other by targeting trophy-sized striped bass with light tackle. There is no trolling and no oversized conventional reels—our clients fish live baits, top water and other artificial lures for big fish.
At Reel Cast Charters, we strongly encourage catch and release fishing for the future of our sport, but will be happy to fillet your limit if you wish to keep it for table fare.
Our boat is kept on a trailer, allowing us to get to a hot bite at any location in an instant. Our annual schedule begins in March with trips on the Housatonic and Connecticut Rivers for both holdover and migrating striped bass. Throughout the summer months, our trips are focused on targeting big striped bass residing along the rocky shores of Eastern Connecticut.
In the fall months, we chase surface feeding false albacore, bonito, striped bass and bluefish with light spinning and fly rods for the ultimate adrenaline rush. In addition, we also provide inshore bottom fishing trips throughout the fall for tautog also known as blackfish. Blackfish are spirited fighters and also make for excellent eating! We wrap up our season in December fishing the arrival of the large population of striped bass that spend the winter months in the local rivers.
Reel Cast Charters offers customized trips, so do not hesitate to contact us. If you are interested in the ultimate inshore angling experience unmatched in the Northeast, you have come to the right place. We look forward to fishing with you soon!
