Plenty of options for fishing. There is a nice dock plus plenty of party boats. I usually fish off of the Laura Lee.

Great place to walk and take in all the activity with fishing boats coming and going. Fishing piers available on north side and south side.South side is a quite bay front beach facing the Fire Island Lighthouse and the Fire Island Inlet. North side faces the New York State Boat channel and the Capture Marina where you will have your pick from a fleet of fishing boats to go out for a day or half day of fishing. Concession stand and restaurant also available.

i went mainly to use the boardwalk for my exercise walk. We first went to fishing pier, which was way too short for my porpoises. We then found the boardwalk which was also quite short but much longer than the pier. Both the pier and the boardwalk had lots of bird poop . Much more than I cared for. At the boardwalk there are two levels. I think the lower is intended for fishing......but there were quite a number of people fishing on the higher level. This, along with the fact that it was somewhat narrow, was a problem. It is very low and close to the water, which i liked a lot. there were restrooms both at the pier and boardwalk. Also there is a playground and a restaurant.

Captree is a magical place. It is a state park so there is a (seasonal / weekend) parking charge (check it online) or admittance with an Empire State pass. There are two fishing piers available, along with a ait shop, restaurant, boat launch and gas dock. It's home to a fleet of Party (Open) fishing boats. If you don't want to actually go fishing you can walk the dock to buy fresh fish when the boats return.

Went fishing with grandchildren ages 2 months to 15 years. Everyone had a great time. We caught fluke and sea robins. The staff was helpful, would bait the rod if you wanted them to and filleted the fish upon request at the end of the trip. Look on the website for group rates. Rods can be rented for $3.00. Trip lasts for 3 hours and it is only 15 minutes or so from the pier. There were less fish caught than I remember being caught last year, but seemed like everyone left with some fish.
