My name is Captain Paul Mandella, owner and operator of Maybe Tonight Charters. I am a U.S.C.G. Licensed Captain and fully insured. I have spent over 40 years in the pursuit of striped bass, bluefish and weakfish around the Great South Bay and Fire Island inlet areas.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for taking the time to read through this website during your search for a charter fishing trip. There are many options available and I appreciate your consideration


I have been very fortunate to have enjoyed a lifelong affair with these waters and they are the basis for some of my very fondest memories. As a charter boat captain I am thrilled to have the opportunity of introducing people to the beauty of the area and it’s local marine inhabitants.

Maybe Tonight Charters offers private charter boat fishing for Striped Bass, Bluefish, Weakfish, Fluke and many other local species in season. Day and night trips are available and flexible to accommodate your needs.


Maybe Tonight Charters sails from Seaborn Marina located in Bay Shore, New York. The marina is easily reached off any of Long Island’s major highways and is approximately 1/2 mile from LIRR’s Bay Shore train station. Arrangements can be made in advance for your pickup from the station if needed.

Maybe Tonight Charters’ goal is to provide clients with an enjoyable day on the water combined with a memorable fishing experience. I look forward to having you aboard, Captain Paul
