False albacore. Don't let the name fool you. These are some of the coolest fish that come within range of NESS each year.

And in early September, we received word that they are presently off our coast in Stonington! While fishing doesn't always mean catching, anyone who has ever chased after these fish will tell you that it’s one of the most exciting fishing trips you’ll ever do.

To see these small relatives of tuna, NESS is offering two types of fishing expeditions with our experienced fishing captains: (1) a 2-hour trip for $250/boat or (2) a 4-hour trip for $450/boat. Each boat can hold 5 people.

To sign up, please call 860.535.9362 or email office@nessf.org.
