What’s summer for? Taking a day off from work to bask in a day of enjoyment! The Ger-Nis Summer Social Club is all about pleasure cruises this summer, figuratively through exploring the vast culinary world of our boroughs and literally exploring the coastal tinges of our New York lives and hitting the high seas! Come fishing with Ger-Nis, and tell the office, “see you later.” We are closing our doors, and hanging up that “Gone fishin’” sign! We’ll congregate at Ger-Nis bright and early, and hop on the B train to Sheepshead Bay to discover the old but tickin’ art of fishing on the bright and shiny Sea Queen charter boat. All novices and experts alike are welcome to learn more about fishing or just enjoy more time engaging in a favorite hobby. Brooklyn has a strong fishing culture that is alive and well, even growing! Learn about all the different styles of fishing you can do in the borough, different kinds of poles to use and the fish native to our waters! You’ll also learn to clean the fish you catch! You don’t need a license, equipment or your own bait, so reel in these high times with ease. This daytime fishing trip will have us seeking the likes of porgies, seabass, weakfish, blues, striped bass… What does the bay have in store for you? Have fun finding out, riding the waves, basking in the sun and exploring something new or tried-and-true! With Captain Steve on the Sea Queen charting our course, there’s full steam ahead! We’ll have the option of hauling back our catch to the center to cook up our fish with a uniquely Ger-Nis, herbified and healthy twist, where you’d learn how to cook the different fishes using fresh herbs! We’ll get to discover what local fish tastes like, and take pride in the fact that we did the work that put the food on the table! All aboard for a day gone fishin’!
