About The Captain

Captain Marco DeStefano has been fishing for most of his life.  Marco first fell in love with the sport the first time his father took him surf fishing as a young boy. Since then his love for fishing has grown deeply. As a teen he picked up a summer job as a mate on a party boat on the north shore of Long Island. In 2007, he bought his first boat and primarily fished the waters of Long Island Sound.  In 2009, he upgraded his boat which gave him the ability to fish the entire island, while continuing to mate on one of Long Island’s friendliest east end six pack charter boats. After years of mating and fishing his own boat, Marco gained valuable insight of the waters around Long Island and realized he wanted to captain his own charter boat. This encouraged Captain Marco to obtain his 50 ton masters USCG captains license. After some time exclusively spent fishing the waters surrounding Montauk and the east end of Long Island, the captain decided it was time to start another chapter. Montauk is the Mecca of fishing. It is a place where numerous different species stage and hold throughout the season, not only in numbers but in size. Montauk is known for producing Trophy Striped Bass, Doormat Fluke and Jumbo Seabass. Captain Marco has been featured in numerous publications including On The Water magazine, Saltwater Sportsman magazine, and Newsday.

Misty Dawn Fishing’s mission is to provide its customers with an enjoyable exciting experience and relaxing time on the water, while catching fish and exploring the beauty that Montauk has to offer.
