Karen Ann Charters – 21' Maritime Skiff

Operating out of Brooklyn, New York, Karen Ann Charters are a team of professionals who know the local waters like the palm of their hands. They have multiple boats accommodating various fishing styles, but this one is all about the back bay light tackle action!

Captain Vinnie Calabro welcomes you aboard his 21’ Maritime skiff, designed for stealth and dominating the flats and back bays with the ability to fish inshore, as well. The trolling motor and the Power-Pole allow anglers to get up close where others can’t go, to the skinniest of waters.

The boat can cater to up to 3 anglers fishing comfortably and comes with a 115 HP Evinrude engine. It also features top-of-the-line marine electronics, safety equipment, and a live bait tank to keep your bait spry and appetizing.

Captain Vinnie will show you the best inshore and flats hotspots and do everything in his power to put you on a catch of your dreams. Depending on the bite, you’ll get to go after giant Striped Bass, Black Seabass, Tautog, Weakfish, and Bluefish. If you’re into trolling and fly fishing, those are options, as well.

The charter includes the use of top-notch custom Penn, Shimano, and Daiwa fishing gear, fly fishing equipment, live bait, and lures. Catch cleaning and licenses are courtesy of the charter! Drinks and snacks are also included in the price.

Book a trip with Karen Ann Charters and get ready for some unforgettable inshore fishing!

For Vinnie, nothing is better than having anglers out for a great day on the water. He has been fishing the local waters for more than four decades and knows the fishery like the back of his hand. He is happy to cater to both experts and novices alike, and will be of great help if this is your first time fishing in New York.
