Fin Chaser Charters - Point Pleasant 26'

If you happen to spend your next vacation in New Jersey, give Fin Chaser Charters a go. Departing out of Manasquan Inlet, Point Pleasant Beach, they will take you exploring the finest grounds that hold healthy doses of Striped Bass, False Albacore, Bluefish, and other species.

Any angler can be rewarded with some fantastic catches when fishing with Captain Frank Wagenhoffer and his crew. You will be able to test your angling skills and master your cast, explore new fishing techniques, and break your own records.

All of that will happen aboard a 26’ center console, built by Regulator FS. With plenty of space for up to 4 anglers and top-notch electronics, this fishing machine is ideal for a productive day on the water. It comes powered by twin 250 HP Yamaha engines and can get you to the fishing grounds quickly and safely.

Spend your morning or afternoon fishing the Manasquan River and Inlet or head a bit further out to check the bite in the ocean. With Striped Bass, Bluefish, Fluke, Tautog, and Seabass all among the popular catches, there are enough fish species to keep you busy.

A nice selection of snacks and drinks, as well as absolutely everything you need for fishing, will be available for you on board. Fly fishing gear for 2 anglers will also be provided when necessary.

Fish Chaser Charters operates from various locations and also runs trips aboard their spacious 36’ Contender. If you have a larger party, take a look at the bigger boat by scrolling down the page and clicking the captain’s name. Happy fishing!
