Karen Ann Charters – 25'

Karen Ann Charters runs amazing fishing trips from Howard Beach, NY! If you’re looking for a professional service and a guide with years of experience – you’ve found it. Captain Vinnie and his team always put extra effort into their trips and they make every guest feel comfortable with them. Whether you’re hoping to break a personal record or you’re just beginning your fishing journey, they’ll take you exploring the NY waters, Jamaica Bay, Raritan Bay, and more.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 25’ Parker boat that accommodates up to 5 guests. She’s powered by a 225 HP Yamaha engine and has all navigational electronics you need to easily find the schools of fish.

The team starts working several hours before your trip begins. They make a stash of freshly caught herring, mullet, or bunker that you’ll use as live bait. All of this pays off in the end, when you land a trophy Striper! You can also target Tautog, Bluefish, Bluefin Tuna, and Black Seabass. The best part is – your catch is yours to keep after the trip. If you’re saving it for later, don’t forget to bring a cooler.

The captain will provide you with Penn, Shimano, and Daiwa rods and reels. If you’re an avid fly fisherman, you can also use fly fishing equipment. Your fishing license is covered and the crew will also prepare snacks and drinks.

Karen Ann Charters can adjust each trip to your needs. Contact them to discuss the details and have an unforgettable day on the water!
