THE CHARTER EXPERIENCE

How big is the boat?
The boat is a 43’ downeaster hull, built in Maine by Lowell Brothers. It’s 15’ wide.  It’s powered by an 800 HP Caterpillar diesel engine, as well as a 9 Kw generator to provide for air conditioning/heat, a microwave, and other amenities.  The boat was originally built in 2004.  Upon purchasing it in 2014, we completely rebuilt, redesigned, and repowered it.

WHAT WILL I CATCH?

What types of fish will we catch?
The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation determines the saltwater fishing season per species each year. Generally, in the summer, we’ll be catching any combination of striped bass, bluefish, fluke, black sea bass and porgies. When fishing offshore, we’ll be targeting sharks and/or tuna. In the fall, we’re fishing primarily for striped bass and black sea bass. And winter fishing usually includes black sea bass, blackfish (tautog) and cod fish.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

What type of clothing should I wear?
We recommend keeping an eye on the weather forecast ahead of your trip and dressing for comfort.  It’s a good idea to bring an extra layer of clothing as it can sometimes be chillier on the water. Don’t wear any clothing you wouldn’t want to get dirty.  Although we’ll handle the bait and fish, staying perfectly clean on a fishing boat is not easy!
