Pick Your Fishing Destination 

Although there is some fun in heading out without a plan, it’s not always a good idea when you’re looking to do some Port Jefferson fishing. Start by visiting and get all the information about a fun fishing trip with New York fishing charter company Celtic Quest.

Whether you’re an expert angler or it’s your first time, you’ll be able to have your questions answered. And they already know the best fishing hot spots off Port Jefferson. 

Plus, your ticket for a Celtic Quest day trip includes rod, reel and bait.

Dust Off Your Fishing Gear — If You Have It

Before you leave, you’ll want to check your gear to ensure it’s still in good working condition. After all, it did just collect dust for a few months. Once you know everything works, check that it is good for the intended species. The rod, reel, and bait could make the difference in how successful any New York fishing trip is.
