Rock and Roll Charters is based out of Clinton CT, home to some of the best fishing on Long Island Sound! We are a full time charter boat company (we do this for a living) with a fun-loving, professional crew, offering morning and afternoon trips daily. We operate 7 days a week from mid-May through November targeting Striped Bass, Bluefish, Blackfish, Fluke, Porgies and Black Sea Bass.

Our fishing grounds are just 15 minutes from the dock!

Our fishing grounds include the famed- Six-Mile Reef, South West Reef and East Rip – just to name a few. These reefs, rips and rock piles hold some of the largest striped bass in the world! It was just one mile from our dock that angler Greg Myerson landed the largest striped bass on record, pulling the scale down to a whopping 81.88 pounds!

About the Capitan

Captain TJ Karbowski is a United States Coast Guard Certified Master Captain and has been fishing the waters of Long Island Sound his entire life. He started competitive fishing at age 11 with his father, winning TWO top spots in Montauk shark tournaments. Fishing and boats have been his passion ever since. When TJ was 20, he had finally saved up enough money to buy his own boat, a 27′ Sea Ray and customized it for offshore fishing. He had this boat for 3 seasons but would soon realize his dream of being a charter captain. He acquired his Captains license and purchased his next boat, a 35′ Luhrs and “Rock and Roll Charters” was born. He built the business up over several years and found he was putting more hours on the boat than the gasoline engines were designed for and a larger boat with diesel engines became necessary. In 2005 he purchased his current boat, a Hatteras 41 and started chartering as his full time profession. This is a quality built vessel designed for offshore fishing. The boat is equipped with: Twin Detroit Diesel 6-71 engines (970HP), underwater exhausts (no diesel fumes), a 9kw generator, 2 fighting chairs, heat, air conditioning, an extra large bathroom, state of the art navigation equipment and features all PENN, SHIMANO, TSUNAMI and DIAWA tournament quality fishing tackle. The Diesel capacity is 550 Gal. and the fresh water tank holds 150 Gal. Over the years Captain TJ has developed a specialty in light tackle fishing for striped bass and bluefish using his trademark downriggers and has guided his customers to multiple state record catches. This unique approach, along with his ability to consistently put his customers on the fish, are the reasons why “Rock and Roll” is one of the busiest charter boats on the Connecticut shoreline.
