Tyin' Knots Charters

Ready to land a trophy-sized Striper?! Join Tyin’ Knots Charters on this adventure. Striped Bass is their favorite target because it always puts up a great fight. Reeling in one of these beauties feels unreal. When you get into a good school of these fish, the action starts and there will no time to rest.

Captain Tyler Hartensteiner and his crew are normally based in Brigantine, New Jersey. However, when they target Stripers in the springtime, Raritan Bay is the place to be. There are many ways to target this fish. You will mainly be trolling, although if the bunker is tight, the captain can load up on them and chunk. Lastly, there’s that top-water bite that everyone would love to get on, although that only happens every so often.

You will start this amazing pursuit on a 25’ Parker boat, which has been restored in 2015. She accommodates up to 4 guests and she’s powered by twin 150 HP Evinrude engines. The boat also features a toilet, outriggers, downriggers, live bait tank, and an ice box.

On most trips there will be a first mate on board, who will do all the dirty work and clean your catch. Capt. Tyler will provide your rods and reels, live bait, and lures. You just need to bring your food and drinks for the day. Kids of all ages are welcome and life vests for them are provided.

"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.
