An Angler’s Dream: 24 Hours of Big Game Fishing
If you’re looking for the ultimate sportfishing experience, join us on one of our overnight charters. This fishing trip takes place anywhere from 60 to 110 miles offshore, where it’s all hands on deck aboard the Legacy! We’ll cruise through the Hudson Canyon in search of yellowfin tuna, bluefin tuna, bigeye tuna, blue and white marlin, mahi mahi, and shark. There’s also a chance we run into other exciting wildlife, such as whales, porpoises, and turtles (although we won’t be catching those!). Sunset and sunrise are prime fishing times, so you can experience breathtaking views while hopefully reeling in a big one.
After departing our location in Freeport, Long Island at 2 pm, we’ll sail about 2 hours to reach the fishing grounds. Then, for the next 20 hours, we’ll be on the hunt for an insane catch! You’ll probably be too excited to sleep, but in case you want to, the Legacy has sleeping arrangements for two in the front of the boat, as well as bean bags. At the end of this 24-hour adventure, we’ll return to Freeport between 2 and 4 pm, invigorated by the break from routine.

Captain Chris Anzelone

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.
