Light Tackle and Fly Fishing Western Long Island Sound
Light Bite Charters
My name is Captain Michael Platt. I grew up with a love a fishing, spending every waking minute fishing freshwater ponds, streams and the famed spring Striper runs of the Hudson River ( and still do ) in Westchester County NY. Once old enough to drive I found myself fishing the beaches and shorelines of Fairfield County CT where I caught my first Striper on the fly at age 16. Since that day I have spent the last 25 years of my life in relentless pursuit of striped bass, bluefish, bonito, albies and blackfish on the long rod and with light tackle in the Western Long Island Sound. I can no longer call what I do "fishing" but rather a "lifestyle". I live, eat, sleep and breathe this lifestyle. I am one of the area's only full time guides with availabilities 7 days a week, because lets face it fishing is always best Monday through Friday not just the weekends. Being I am on the water most everyday I have an intimate knowledge of the current fishing conditions and techniques which translates into you getting into some nice fish. One thing I pride myself on is honesty and I won't take you on a boatride. If the bite is "off" I'll be the first to tell you. We can reschedule or if that is the only time you have I will do everything possible to get you into fish.
