Silver Lining Charters

For a great day out, book a trip with Silver Lining Charters today. Captain Christopher will have you fishing the Hudson River like a pro in no time. With over 3 decades of experience under his belt, he offers his guests an exciting and safe day of fishing.

You’ll meet up with the captain 15 minutes before the trip begins for a safety briefing. After completion, you’ll board a 26’ center console boat. There’s enough room on board for all 6 anglers to fish at the same time. There is some seating, making for a comfortable ride, and enough space to fish 360° around the boat.

Once you set off, you’ll be looking for live bait. Children especially love catching live bait. Once the live bait well is full, you can set off for the real star of the show, the Striped Bass. You’ll mostly be trolling for Striped Bass, so no previous fishing experience is needed.

Children are welcome on board and there’s no minimum age for them. Life vests are on board and have to be worn by the kids. When a first mate is needed, the captain’s son will join you. He will make sure you have a top time reeling in the fish.

Included in the price of the trip are top quality rods and reels and the live bait you’ll help catch. The captain will also provide water – you can bring along your own food and snacks. After the trip, the captain will fillet your catch for you. You just need to decide how to cook your haul!

Remember to get a fishing license before the day of the trip – you won’t be able to fish without one.

Book a trip today for an unforgettable day out on the water that you and your whole family will love.

I am the third generation of avid fishermen who have shared this passion. I have successfully fished from the St.Lawrence River in Canada to Key West Florida for numerous species. Throughout my teens and early 20's, I worked as a mate on a boat that catered to both commercial fishing and private use. I am proud to now own and operate "Silver Lining Charters," specializing in Striper fishing on the Hudson River in the Albany NY area. In addition to Striped Bass fishing, the "Silver Lining" is available for private charters.
