You’ll be fishing from a 35’ Henriques Downeast, originally built in 1981 and restored in 2002 with some TLC. She’s powered by a 350 HP Cummins engine with a maximum cruising speed of 20 knots, making her a safe and powerful vessel. There’s room on board for up to 6 guests.

This charter’s crew has so much knowledge of the local waters that it will be able to put you on great fish wherever you chose to go. On shorter trips, you’ll be catching Striped Bass, Bluefish, Flounder, Black Seabass, and Weakfish.

The crew will provide rods, reels, and tackle, as well as live bait, lures, and a fishing license. They use the finest quality tackle and gear available to aid your fishing experience, so please be sure to use it with care! You’ll have a first mate on service who works hard for a 20% tip. Cleaning and filleting is available upon request.

Capt. Mark and his crew are waiting to show you what Brigantine’s waters have to offer. Come cast off on an incredible adventure with Treemendous Sportfishing Charters!
