Fin Chaser Charters specialize in New York City fly fishing and light tackle charters.
Where you'll fish and what you'll catch...
Whether your fishing trip starts out in Manhattan, New York Harbor, Staten Island, Jamaica Bay or Long Beach Island, NJ, you'll find fish you thought could only be caught in exotic locations!
On Fin Chaser Charters, you'll sight cast to striped bass on a shallow water flat, throw big flies into the mighty Hudson under the NYC skyline, or even chase busting tuna in offshore canyons. Regardless of your charter destination, you can be sure that you are always the biggest part of the scene!
When you book a NYC fishing charter with Fin Chaser, we will custom-design an exciting fishing excursion just for you and your group! We specialize in NYC fly fishing and light tackle charters with an emphasis on client enjoyment and education.
This is not lounge chair fishing; it is fast paced and exciting, with you right at the center of everything happening!
Fin Chaser Charters is a first class, premium charter service. We use the best tackle money can buy and have plenty of it. We drive big boats that you to the fish fast, comfortable and dry! We NEVER watch the gas gauge, and I guarantee no one will work harder to put you on fish, no matter how far or how hard we have to run to get you there. Period!
This equates to more fuel used, but nothing is more valuable than your time. In 12 seasons of guiding, I have built a long list of satisfied customers and can provide referrals upon request.
