Now on to your GreatFrumTrips.com article...


Wednesday of last week was beautiful and only in the seventies – practically a blizzard in the heat wave that was the other days last week – a perfect day to try out something I’ve been wanting to do for some time but had never done before:

Deep sea fishing, with a professional charter boat.

At home we like to say,

“Patience is a virtue, it’s just not one of mine.” That is a very good reference to me and fishing in general.

I don’t like to go fishing, I like to go “catching” 🙂

Get my drift? (Hey, no pun intended, of course.)

That’s why grabbing this awesome deal with three other friends for a four hour trip on a near perfect day hit the spot!

Just about an hour from Passaic, and even closer to many NY frum communities such as Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island, we purchased the deal and scheduled for the 4 hour, 1PM-5PM trip, out on the Long Island Sound.

The Angler is the HIGHEST rated fishing fleet, with over 850 positive reviews, averaging nearly 5 stars, so we had to see for ourselves why.

We did NOT tell them that we were scouting them out for this article, and went out to enjoy the afternoon.

At the end of a great day, we did tell the Captain and first mate about GreatFrumTrips.com and KosherVacationCentral.com, and took the picture above – they absolutely deserve the publicity and your business, but I digress.

We went on board and rented their own rods, all baited up, weighted and outfitted for fluke fishing for just $5 per person. At that rate, even if I had my own rod, I’d leave it at home and use theirs – so much easier and convenient.

How do you know what kind of fish you will catch?

And what about Kosher?

Good questions, both, and here’s the answer:

Using sonar and the experience of doing these trips day in – day out, the fleet crew fishes for specific kinds of fish and know the times of year, times of day and the best spots to find them. We were fishing for Fluke, also known as Summer Flounder, (an undoubtedly kosher fish)  like the one in the picture above (yes, one of us caught that!)

Continuing with your article...

We also kept catching these really strange and unique Searobins – winged fish that look like they should be taking to the air any second – and kosher as well.

How do we know that they were kosher? Fins and scales, and this helpful list from the JSOR of Kosher fish species

While the fluke had to be 19″ or greater to keep, Searobins can be kept at any size.

The crew was incredibly friendly, helpful and always ready with tips, advice and support as we fished, constantly rebaiting our lines, helping with caught fish and essentially waiting on us hand and foot – no wonder they are so highly rated!

Behind me in the picture of a freshly-caught Searobin is the first-mate, Andrew who will momentarily take the fish, re-bait the line, and completely take everything that would normally make fishing less-than-pleasant literally off my hands!

While we caught lots of fish – I personally caught six

including two undersized fluke,

and four searobins –

our group of four won the boat-pool for the biggest fish caught – A 21″near 5 lb fluke!!

 

The crew of the Angler skillfully filleted all of our fish for us at no additional charge!

How could we do that? Glad you asked.

Per the OU’s website:

Q: I heard that some people bring a knife from home to the fish store, because the one they use in the store might have residue from non-kosher fish on it. Is this true, and what should I do if I don’t have a knife to bring?

A: Yes, there is a concern that the non-certified store uses their knives on non-kosher fish (even when they claim to have a “kosher” knife only used on kosher fish). You can bring a knife from home to avoid this concern, but there is another option: you could have the store wash their knife and check to make sure it is truly clean (and not just “sort of rinsed”). The board the fish is cut on must be properly washed as well, or covered with craft paper, to protect the kosher order from getting compromised by residue left on the board from a previous, non-kosher, order.
