Connecticut Charter Fishing JBSportfishing

We offer the finest Connecticut Charter fishing experience. The JB boat is clean, comfortable, and able to reach the longer range species in less time. We can cater to groups of up to 6 passengers or can pair up a two boat trip for groups up to 12.  JB Sportfishing uses only the finest custom rods and equipment provided by J&B Tackle. Capt. Kerry and his son Kyle are the second and third generation of fisherman to ply these waters. The business was started by Kerry’s father, the late John “Jack” Douton in 1972. Capt. Kerry also founded J&B tackle, and his son Kyle splits his time between running the shop and venturing to the Canyons. We are a family that helped pioneer offshore tuna trolling and chunking in this area. Call to arrange your charter.

Striped Bass, Fluke, Sea Bass, Bluefish, Porgies, False Albacore and Tautog.

The waters of Long Island and Block Island sound offer some of the finest fishing for delectable inshore species. We target them all. The Black Sea Bass fishery is also quickly becoming a local favorite!  JB Sportfishing also offers “split” charters for those who can’t get a group of 6 organized and want a quality private boat experience.

Inshore specialty trips include Night Striped Bass and Block Island/Montauk all day Jumbo Fluke trips.
