The charter boat After You, too provides fishing charters in Connecticut at affordable rates for your group of up to six (6) passengers. The boat, a 32' H&H was custom built in 2003. It has an 11'3" beam and is powered by a 370 HP Yanmar Diesel. Top speed is 20 knots, and it cruises at 18 knots. It has an enclosed toilet and is outfitted with state-of-the-art electronics and modern safety equipment.
No fishing license is required.
Our boat is docked at Captain Scott's Lobster Dock, 80 Hamilton Street, in New London, CT. We start our fishing in early May as soon as the larger Striped Bass arrive, usually around May 10th or 12th. The marina also has a restaurant with plenty of rest rooms. The months of May, June and July are excellent for catching Striped Bass along with some Bluefish. By August the Blues have arrived in large numbers and often provide non-stop action. Striped Bass, Blues and Porgies are caught all through the summer and fall. Evening and night fishing produce some of the largest Striped Bass after the Blues have arrived.
New this year… In late July, August and September we will be doing some cod fishing trips south of Block Island. Call for more information.
