Guided Kayak Fishing Charters

Guided Kayak Fishing Charters

Black Hall Outfitters is now offering guided kayak fishing charters on the CT Long Island Sound out of its Old Lyme Location. Our Epic ‘Striper Highway’ paves the road from the merge of the Black Hall, Lieutenant, and Connecticut Rivers out to and along the Old Lyme beaches where there are numerous structured rock piles and muscle beds for some of the best skinny water yak fishing along the east coast. This is truly a key destination kayak fishing spot in the Northeast.

Kayak fishing is on fire and continuing to grow at a rapid pace. BHO’s Old Town pedal fishing kayaks are made for anglers of all kinds. These pedal drive kayak models help you get to the fish that the big boats just can’t reach.

As one of the top Old Town ‘premier’ retailers of fishing kayaks in the country, BHO is able to provide you with your own choice of 4 of the highest rated fishing kayaks from Old Town including; The Old Town BigWater PDL, The Old Town Salty PDL or an Old Town 106 or 120 Pedal Drive kayak for you to use on your BHO guided fishing charter. These are the most technically advanced, stable fishing yaks on the market, and the pedal drive systems keep your hands on your rod and reel... right where they belong!

Absolutely! We’ll discuss ahead of time what is (and is not) suited to our trip and you’re welcome to bring some gear you’d like to use.

Like all charter companies, BHO will always default to local regulations, minimum sizes, etc, but yes, as long as it is legal and in-season you are welcome to keep fish you catch.

Of course ‘Gilla’ is happy to filet up your fish for you. Don’t forget a cooler, ice and a few zip lock bags if you plan on keeping your fish.

Unfortunately there are no refunds when the fish don’t cooperate. We’ll do our very best to give you every chance we can at catching the target species. But remember, there’s a reason they call it "fishing" and not "catching".

We at BHO are always monitoring the weather. As your charter date gets closer, we will be checking the forecast and in the event of inclement weather, we will contact you directly to discuss and reschedule for you.

Of course! We always welcome clients to use their own gear or kayak if you’d like, as long as the kayak make/model is appropriate for the type of fishing trip we have planned.
