Captain Chris Fishing Charters

Captain Chris Fishing Charters provides private fishing trips in Montauk, New York. Montauk lies at the helm of Long Island and boasts of the most stellar record-breaking tradition in big game inshore fishing.

If you’re looking for action-packed Striped Bass fights or just want to take your friends out for a fun time on the water, trips with Captain Chris Fishing Charters are the ones to book.

These waters are home to big fish, and aboard the 30’ Baja, you will have great time going after it. The boat was restored in 2017, and is powered by a 300 HP Cummins diesel engine. Its navigation equipment will help you find a trophy catch and the fighting chair will help you reel it in. The boat provides enough space to stay alert as the big game starts biting.

Captain Chris Fishing Charters specializes in inshore fishing, and once you set out, you will be targeting Striped Bass, Black Sea Bass, Blackfish, Fluke, Porgy and Bluefish. The season here picks up already in April, and gives plenty of fine weather year round to reel in some impressive catch.

This will be a great opportunity to try out a variety of techniques, including jigging, trolling, spinning, and drift fishing. And for the bold anglers, you can even try bowfishing. The equipment will wait for you onboard!.

Captain Chris has been in the fishing business for 25 years, and has the skills to help you get any fish swimming nearby. He provides rods, reel and tackle, live bait and lures, and as you sail back to the shore, he’ll clean and fillet the catch for you.
