If you trailer your boat, there are ramps, both private and public, available in the area. Regulations vary and again itís a good idea to make inquiries regarding parking and permit requirements. Private ramps charge a fee for their use and provide parking for your vehicle which helps make your life a little easier.
If you would like to go fishing on a boat but donít have one of your own, you have two options Ė you can fish on a party boat (also called a head boat) where you are one of several fishermen aboard, or you can charter a boat, which is exclusively yours for the day with a captain and possibly a mate. There are a number of different types of charter boats to choose from, depending upon the type of fishing you want to do and also your budget.
There are boats that will take 1 or 2 anglers out into the bay for fly fishing for Stripers and, at the other end of the spectrum, there are large charter boats that will take up to 6 passengers out 70 miles plus to chase Tuna, Mahi-mahi (Dolphinfish) and Marlin. Or, if you wish, you can charter a boat for a Mako trip, Bluefish or almost anything you can imagine. For some names of boats, check this website, local fishing publications and, of course, the tackle and marine shops.
