Capitol Princess, Party Boat Fishing, New York City Style

A great day with friends on aboard the Capitol Princess sailing out of Manhattan up the East River, through Hell’s Gate and into the Long Island Sound for blackfish.


Aboard the Capitol Princess for November Blackfish-

You don’t get many days like this in late November.

Eric Collins, whose family has run Capitol Fishing Tackle for decades, has built a boat that takes party boat fishing to the next level.

The boat will has a bar onboard, and has a capacity for 150 for events. The all inclusive trips put out a spread that is righteous with bagels and spreads and proper deli sandwiches all afternoon. Nice folks with a mind to make sure you enjoy yourselves.


They plan to keep capacity at around 55 for Fishing in order to ensure everyone has elbow room. Great mates and a fun atmosphere make for A great day on the water.




They put us on the fish and almost everyone caught something.


And the views are breathtaking!
