A donor sponsored a charter fishing boat on Friday afternoon to give Carver kids an opportunity to discover nature up-close and personally.

Based out of Norwalk, Connecticut, Pelagic Beast Fishing Charters offer unforgettable fishing adventures, using tried and tested fishing techniques that worked for our students. 

The Pelagic Beast is a 32 ft Downeast style boat that offers a secure ride in almost any weather conditions. Cruising at 20 knots, this boat gave the Carver kids more time fishing and less time traveling. The boat comfortably accommodates six anglers plus three crew members. She is fitted with top of the range gear, with electronics by Raymarine to find fish. High-quality fishing equipment is also supplied on board, with rods by Seeker and St Croix, reels by Avet and hooks by Owner Hooks. 

Pelagic Beast Fishing Charters uses a range of fishing techniques on their trips, from trolling, bottom fishing, or jigging or popping with lures.

Connecticut offers some of the best saltwater fishing that few places can rival. With over 100 species of fish found in Long Island Sound, anglers can enjoy some of the very best striped bass, bluefish, summer flounder, scup, hickory shad, black sea bass and tautog fishing along the entire coast. The State of Connecticut offers anglers many fishing opportunities with excellent boat launches along the coast and great shore fishing locations at coastal state and city parks, and charter boat fishing.
