All fish caught by our clients are properly handled by our professional, knowledgeable mates paying particular attention to quality. Fish are bled, and immediately iced in one of our commercial fish coolers. Fish are filleted or dressed to the client’s preference and packaged for your convenience. Ice is available at the boat to keep your catch fresh for the trip home. Now once, you have caught them, and our mates have cleaned, bagged and iced them, it is up to you to prepare them for your table. Click on the links to the right to see some of our favorite recipes.

Of course, if you’re preparing fresh fish, we recommend that you use fresh ingredients. The North Fork of Long Island has no shortage of farms and farmstands where locally grown fresh vegetables and herbs can be purchased. Both Latham’s Farmstand and Sep’s Farmstand are located along Route 25, west of our dock in Orient. Both are less than 10 minutes from the boat.
If you get the oppurtunity, we recommend that you stop at the Southold Fish Market, located at 64755 Route 25 in Southold (the former Hollister's Restaurant). Southold Fish Market stocks fresh local seafood including clams, oysters, lobsters, steamers, Peconic Bay Scallops and more to enhance your meal. To help you prepare your freshly caught fish, Southold Fish Market also stocks condiments and other related items.
