Our Project Stewardship group has enjoyed boat outings with Operation Splash (cleaning the South Shore bays) and Freeport Water Taxi (seal watching) in the past. This season we will embark on a Fishing Trip out of Captree Boat Basin. Even if you have never gone fishing before, there will be professionals on board to assist you. Fish are cleaned on the boat and can be taken home for dinner. If not interested in fishing, you can still come along for the ride and enjoy time with peers!
Some Background “Captain Neil Delanoy and his Laura Lee crew have been fishing the waters of Great South Bay and Fire Island since 1974. Starting with the Lady Ann and Casey Lee, then the Laura Lee and now adding the new fast Laura Lee Express. Both boats are Coast Guard Inspected and approved with the latest safety, navigation and fish finding equipment. Both boats have individual rod holders for each fisherman and although both boats are licensed for 130 passengers we limit the trips depending on the type of fishing to between 19 and 80 fishermen”.
This will be an fun and relaxing outing! Even though it is summer, please wear pants, bring a jacket and sun block. You may also bring water, snack or lunch although there is a snack bar with indoor seating on board. Bring your cameras (or phones) for photos!
