Karen Ann Charters is run by Captain Vinnie Calabro who provides daily fishing trips in the so-called NY Bay, which includes Jamaica Bay, Raritan Bay, East River, Brooklyn, and Jersey. Captain Vinnie would love to have you on board whether you’re a seasoned professional, or someone who’s just getting started with the exciting world of fishing.
The boat you will be fishing on is a custom-built 38’ Holland that’s powered by a 375 HP Caterpillar engine. You will find all the necessary navigation and safety gear included, with plenty of space for up to six prospective anglers to fish in comfort. Other amenities such as a toilet, live well, and outriggers, are sure to come in handy during the trip.
Captain Vinnie specializes in inshore fishing, in waters up to some 5 miles out, but he might go further out to kite fish for Tuna if it’s in season. His usual targets include Black Seabass, Striped Bass, Bluefish and more, and there are some really big fish to be found in these waters with enough skill and luck.
Quality rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price of the trip, and the crew will clean anything you’ve caught during the trip. Vinnie also proudly provides a discount for veterans in the Wounded Warriors program, 9/11 survivors, people with disabilities, and hunting club members as well. Bring a pair of sunglasses and get ready to go after the big ones!
