There are few secrets left in the waters of New Jersey for Tyin’ Knots Charters. They’ll get you to check the bite in the numerous bays, wrecks, reefs, and blue waters off the coast of Brigantine while providing an immaculate service.

Captain Tyler Hartensteiner commands their 25’ Parker pilothouse. Her 9’ beam makes it easy to do ocean runs, especially useful when going after Sharks. The engines are twin Evinrudes with 150 HP each. She’s fully equipped with a state-of-the-art electronics and fishfinding system that will help put you on the fish in no time.

Capt. Tyler specializes in fishing for Striped Bass and highly recommends going for a run during fall. Other than Stripers, you can look forward to hooking up Tautog and Black Seabass around underwater wrecks, they’ll give you a tough fight. You can also hit the many bays of the area for species such as Summer Flounder, Triggerfish, or others.

Head into blue waters to go after a wide range of species. Various Sharks, Mahi Mahi, and Bluefin and Yellowfin Tuna lurk off the coast. You’ll head out between 10 and 80 miles for these pelagic predators.

Feel free to bring snacks and drinks with you on board, there’s an icebox where you can store them. Kids of all ages are welcome on board, the captain will provide you with life jackets in all sizes.

"The excitement when landing any species of fish is indescribable. And seeing someone else land their dream fish cannot make you feel any better. " Captain Tyler has been fishing for as long as he remembers since he was 5 years old. He's spent the past 5 years honing and perfecting his angling skills. Not only has he been a first mate and learned all the tricks of the trade but he's won two freshwater tournaments as well! Capt. Tyler and his crew work hard on making sure trips with him are as fun as possible and they love teaching people whatever they want to learn.
