Treemendous Sportfishing Charters

Captain Mark Hansen can’t wait to help you land a mighty fish aboard Treemendous Sportfishing Charters! Along with his experienced crew, his number one goal is to put you on the catch of your dreams, and make sure you have the adventure of a lifetime out on Brigantine’s fish-filled waters

Capt. Mark is an experienced captain who has been fishing these local waters for over 40 years. It’s safe to say he knows a thing or two about casting a line in these waters! Whether you want to hook that East Coast favorite, Striped Bass, or target hard-fighting big game fish offshore, he warmly welcomes you on board his charter.

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 vessel features an enclosed heated cabin, so your trip will be enjoyable no matter whether you’re taking the family out on a cloudy day, or are seeking some shade during warm summer months. She truly is a boat for all seasons!

This charter’s crew has so much knowledge of the local waters, they’ll 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, whereas longer offshore trips will see you coming face-to-gills with White Marlin and Tuna varieties.

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!
