Billy "The Kid" Carman is one of the younger captains in the Montauk fishing fleet and has made a name for himself by bringing in a haul of trap-caught black sea bass late in the season, a surprise treat as they are harder to reach as they move further out to sea with the cooler Fall water temps.
The F/V Billy the Kid is captained by the eponymous Billy "The Kid" Carman and is a small, unassuming vessel that employs a variety of gear types but has become known with Dock to Dish for bringing in hauls of pristine, trap-caught black sea bass.
At Dock to Dish Montauk we have pioneered unique community-based seafood sourcing programs which provide forward-thinking chefs and members of our cooperatives with direct dock access to incredibly fresh, wild, sustainable seafood that is accurately curated and fully trackable and traceable to the source of origin and fisher who harvested the haul. Dock to Dish Montauk is a strictly supply-driven, membership-based model which was founded by a crew of veteran seafarers who launched the original Community Supported Fishery program of New York State; and then established the first Restaurant Supported Fishery program in North America.
We really do appreciate you taking the time to do this.
