As a lifetime Long Islander, caught up in the stresses of today's busy world, I decided to take myself, and 2 children on a chartered fishing boat. Fishing has always been my favorite form of relaxation and something that I share as a hobby with my sons. It has become difficult for me to spontaneously go out to fresh water lakes or off docks as I am physically impaired and can no longer carry the essentials needed for that type of fishing. I chose The Laura Lee for our adventure as I've heard nothing but rave reviews of it's Captains and crew, as well as it's longevity. To begin with, I looked at their website for information and I found way more than I could've ever expected! They take great pride in what they do, from up to the minute exact counts and species of each trip's catch with photos, to actual recipes for the fish that you will be try to catch. That website is worth it's weight in gold! I hoped that our trip would be as thoughtfully planned out, like the Laura Lee's website, with attention to each and every detail. I was amazed immediately as the crew greet you to board and offer assistance in picking out a comfortable location for you on the boat. Everyone introduces themselves and creates a warm atmosphere as they explain what will happen on your trip. I was instantly shocked at how immaculate this vessel was maintained, from the deck floor to the restrooms! They have private restrooms for both men and women that are pristinely kept as well as the indoor cabin area that contains at least ten or more booth type tables and seating like you would find in a restaurant. The crew is at your side baiting your hooks while giving terrific instructions on how to go about fishing for what that days' catch is constantly. When you catch a fish, and you will, before you can think of it, there is a mate next to you to guide or assist in the capture of whatever is on the end of your pole. I could have never hoped for even an eighth of how easily the trip went, and I was so excited that I journeyed out with The Laura Lee again, not long after my first trip! The crew clean and fillet your catch in front of you as well as asking if and how you would like that done. Bar none, this is the way to fish-comfortably, happy and somewhat spoiled! All things considered, the entire experience was unbelievable. The Laura Lee with it's Captains, cleanliness and customer service is nothing short of a class act, so don't miss it!!
