World Class Angling in Long Island Sound

Tambass Charters knows fishing. Founded and operated by the Tambascio brothers, Tambass Charters is a fishing education and charter service that operates out of lower Fairfield County in Connecticut. You don't need a big boat to run big business. With a fleet of center consoles, and minimal draft, Tambass will put you on the fish at any tide. Fishing charters - aboard with Tambass, Guided tours, and Moonlight Bass trips - are available for anglers of all ages.

Learn new skills and navigate Western Long Island Sound with Tambass Captains and Crew. Peak season runs from the end of April through the middle of November and targets Striped Bass, Bluefish, Scup, Seabass, Fluke and Blackfish.
