Long Island Back Bay Charter
Breathtaking Views of the Great South Bay
Fishing for Fluke, Bass, and Bluefish
All Skill Levels Welcome
Join us for a sportfishing adventure in the Great South Bay! Captain Chris Anzelone is an expert at finding the best places to catch bass, bluefish, and fluke. Whether you’re new to fishing or a seasoned veteran, this trip is for you. The feeling of reeling in a big catch never gets old!
Trophy Fishing on the Great South Bay
Freeport, Long Island in New York has some of the most pristine wetland and back bays in the northeast. On the Back Bay Charter, bass, bluefish, and fluke will be our main targets. Expect one heck of an adventure — we specialize in light tackle action to give you the best fight when reeling in a fish. Fishing out here is often fast and furious, and the Great South Bay is a breeding ground for all types of baitfish, such as spearing, kellies, and bunker. As the seasoned fisherman knows, where there is bait, there are predators feeding. And we plan to reel in as many of these predators as possible!
The Back Bay Charter is suitable for even the most serious topwater angler, whether you specialize in fly fishing or spinnerbait. Captain Chris Anzelone has over 30 years of experience fishing in the Great South Bay, and he knows what it takes to find the ultimate catch.

Captain Chris Anzelone
Captain Chris Anzelone has spent his entire life on the water. His father, Captain Paul Anzelone, was a commercial fisherman, and from a young age, Capt. Chris was fishing the bays and oceans off Long Island. In 2009 Chris got his U.S. Coast Guard 6-Pack Charter Boat License and pursued his childhood dream of becoming a captain. In honor of his late father, he established Legacy Charters Sport Fishing. Now he spends his time doing what he loves best.
Carrying on the Legacy
The Legacy is a 34-foot SeaVee boat. Equipped with twin 350-horsepower Mercury Verado motors, it can navigate the bays and oceans of Long Island with ease. It features Garmin marine electronics, autopilot, radar, and VHF radio. As a U.S. Coast Guard approved boat, the Legacy also carries safety equipment such as life jackets, flares, a fire extinguisher, and a first aid kit.

Can I change my reservation?
You are welcome to move your reservation to another available date, but we ask that you please let us know as soon as possible if this is the case.
What happens to the fish after I catch it?
