Fish Finder III

Fish Finder Marina is a full-service charter company that offers exciting fishing trips out of Brigantine, New-Jersey. The company owns a tackle shop on the premises, so the crew are well-prepared for the current bite. They specialize in family events and outings on the beautiful waters of Brigantine.

Enjoy your adventure with Fish Finder Marina aboard a 27-foot Hydra Sport boat, which can comfortably take up to six guests. Originally built in 1998, it was upgraded in 2006 and comes powered by twin 200 HP Johnson engines with a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots. The vessel is wheelchair accessible and is fitted with a live bait tank, outriggers and downriggers for a professional fishing experience, an ice-box to keep the catch fresh, and a multimedia system to relax in between the bites. Inside, there is a toilet, a shower, a kitchen, and a bed – what else is needed when spending your day on the water?

Fish Finder III will take you fishing inshore, nearshore, the reefs and wrecks, as well as further offshore. The private charters are four, six, and eight hours on the water, where you will be able to test yourself in bottom fishing, trolling, jigging, drift fishing, and popping. Fish Finder Marina targets a great variety of species, including but not limited to Flounder, Striped Bass, Black Seabass, Tautog, Weakfish, and Bluefish, as well Thresher, Blue, and Mako Sharks.

A trip with Fish Finder III comes inclusive with all the necessary fishing equipment to put your catch together. You will be provided with rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and lures, as well as the licenses for you and your group. If you decide to keep the catch, it will be cleaned and filleted for you after the trip so that you could taste it for dinner later. As well as that, you will be offered snacks and drinks, so feel free to bring your own food if you want.

After a day out with Fish Finder Marina, you will have the fish stories which you will remember for years to come.
