The Morning Star is a 6 pack (6 passenger) custom Maine built Duffy downeast. She is powered by a 370HP Cummins motor and is equipped with the latest electronics to maximize your fishing experience. We cruise speeds over 20 knots to be able to get us from point to point faster to ensure you spend more time fishing.  Our customized double anchor pulpit and hauler built by Bill Heath for bottom fishing makes sure we keep you over the wrecks when needed. A microwave and a head (toilet) down below is onboard for your convenience as well. We have an experienced crew that has spent their lives navigating and working the local water of the New York bite and they work hard to make your trip enjoyable and make sure your catch is cleaned for you at the end of your trip to take home.

We specialize in Big Game Striped Bass fishing beginning in April. We begin every trip netting live bait by throwing a big cast net to give us maximum edge over other boats. As the water begins to warm up, we transition to buck-tailing for Fluke and have split charters available for Bass and Fluke upon request. Other summer species we fish for include Shark• Sea Bass• Porgy• Tuna• Bluefish. In the winter months, we cater to the sharpies Blackfishing the wrecks and open bottom and have available 50-70 Mile wreck trips for Giant Sea Bass and Cod.
