The cost is $450.00 including NY state tax for the 5 hour charter. I will supply everything we need to fish. For insurance purposes I am limited to a maximum of 3 anglers per charter. The boat is most comfortable with 2 fishermen on board, but one more or less is certainly workable. I am now booking trips for late April and all of May. Dates and times can be discussed over the phone. Call now for best dates. 845-238-7508.

New York Angler Registry

License Requirement New York State no longer has a paid license requirement, however you are required to register with the NYDEC for free to fish for Striped Bass in this area. Simply click here to obtain you FREE registry number. This will avoid any delays at the dock on the day of your charter.

Your Trip

For your trip you will need:

  • a lunch in a small soft sided cooler
  • your camera
  • hat
  • sunglasses
  • rain gear

Sunglasses are a must for eye protection.  If possible wear comfortable non-marking shoes.  We experience complete extremes of weather so dressing in layers is highly recommended.  As a photography note bright colored clothing make the best pictures. If you have experienced motion sickness it is important to take Dramamine the night before your trip.

Catch and release is encouraged, however each angler is allowed to keep one fish between18″to 28” or one over 40”. All other fish must be released unharmed. If you plan to keep a fish be sure to bring a large sturdy bag to put the fish in and a cooler with ice for the ride home. There are no facilities for me to filet your fish at the Marina. At the top of this page you will find a filet video that will show you how.

I will have a cooler with cold soft drinks on board and there are always extra snacks for us in the cabin. To provide a safe trip, alcoholic beverages should be kept to a minimum for everyone’s enjoyment.  A beer or two is fine anything in excess of this is not permitted and hard liquor is never permited.  My main goal is to provide you with a safe and productive fishing experience.
