Reel Addicted Charters – Port Ewen

They say you spend your whole life chasing that feeling you get after landing your first monster fish. With Reel Addicted Charters you can expect to get that feeling over and over again. Join Capt. Michael Ford on the Hudson River and get ready to overdose on some massive Stripers!

You’ll be fishing from a 25’ Robalo walkaround, equipped with top-of-the-line Raymarine and Lowrance navigational instruments, as well as downriggers for trolling. She’s spacious and can comfortably accommodate large groups of up to 6 guests, making her perfect for family trips or corporate team-building events.

You’ll depart out of Rondout Creek in Port Ewen to target the mighty Striped Bass. You’ll be trolling for most of the trip but you can also choose to fly fish if you’re up for an extra challenge. Stripers are extremely fun to chase and provide a hard battle for even the most experienced anglers.

State-of-the-art equipment and tackle are provided on every trip, including fly gear if you want to give fly fishing a go. The boat is also stocked with safety equipment, including life vests for children. Kids age 5 and up are more than welcome aboard, as long as they are accompanied by a parent or guardian.
