Fish two anglers comfortably. Three is tough. Four
is out of the question. Turns will have to be taken for lines in the water.
The boat leaves out of the Englewood Boat Basin, Englewood, N. J. Just north
of the George Washington Bridge on the Jersey side.
Tackle - All tackle supplied. If you
have a favorite Rod & Reel Bring it!
chaos Rods, G-Loomis Rods, St Croix Rods, Fenwick Rods, Custom made Rods by Chas
Stamm. All light action equipment.
Shimano Calcutta 400 Reels, Penn International 965 Reels, Shimano TLD and Charter
Special Reels Conventional Reels and Spinning Gear.
Conventional reels work better than spinning reels for 90 % of
our tactics. That is...drifting and fishing in close contact with the bottom.
When blues are working the surface, we pull out the light spinning tackle and cast plugs
for some great surface action. We are opportunistic fishing. We are prepared
for what the water offers us at any given time. We hope!
Catch and release is practiced all the
Photos will be taken and your fish released unless an
angler insists on taking a fish home.
If that is the case they will clean it themselves.
Live bait when possible. Live eels, Fresh Bunker, Charlie Rigs, Artificials.
I fish in and around lower Manhattan, NYC. The Battery, Bayridge Flats, Jersey
Flats, East River, Vz. Bridge, Norton's Point, Coney Island, Statue of Liberty & all
the bridges around NYC.
Tactics & Fishing
Because of the techniques we use, more than two anglers get in the way of each
other. I fish currents. Sometimes the boat spins around and with more than two
lines in the water it becomes more untangling than fishing. Experienced anglers are
not required but it helps! With a 23 foot boat, it gets a bit crowded with
four or more anglers if you have more than three anglers, I would suggest using the Weigh-Point Sport Fishing with the larger boat for fishing the
|90% of my fishing is drifting. Drifting over
structure. Sometimes in the spring and summer I will anchor up and chunk for bass
|I encourage "Catch and Release." Particularly with
the striped bass. Occasionally I will keep a weakfish or fluke but 99% of my fish
are photographed and released.
If you are looking to fill your cooler
with fish to take home, this charter is not for you.
I key in on catching large fish. Striped Bass and Bluefish. I like
that strong pull on the line and I enjoy watching a large fish swim out of my hands. Or
your hands. The larger the fish the better.
|Care is taken to make sure the fish are released properly and
