THE FISHFINDER II is a 65ft low profile fishing vessel..both engines are doubled muffered for maximum quiet...nothing will spook striped bass away is a party boat at night with loud engines or super bright lights or the shadow of a upper deck...the capacity of the FISHFINDER is 80 fisherman we limit the boat to 38 fisherman for striped bass fishing...Our fishing tackle is always updated both rod and reels and fresh fishing line is a must to land a large striped bass..
NIGHT TIME TRIPS
The FISHINDER II ..In the SPRING and SUMMER
seasons we fish for striped bass every night 5pm-9pm. (some large bass are caught at this time) Live and soft plastic baits are used. Most fishing is done in the bay and around the bridges. (both weakfish and bluefish are in the mix). The Fishfinder II sails on Thursday/friday/saturday nights 10pm-3am fishing with live eels these trips also produce large stripers. Fishing is done in the inlet bay and around the bridges.....IN THE FALL the FISHFINDER II Sails every night for striped bass with live eels for bait 7pm-12Mid night..when eel fishing we limit the number of passengers to a maximum of 38 this way nobody has to fish under the boat..some boats put people on both sides while eeling this is simply taking you for a boat ride...In my opinion live eel fishing at night is the most effective fishing for striped bass...our experience crew has been night eel fishing for many years and the FISHFINDER is the #1 producer of striped bass at the Captree dock since 2003..

DAY TIME TRIPS
The FISHFINDER II offers two different types of striped bass daytime fishing trips during the fall season every day 12 noon-5pm a five hour trip on the weekend Sat/Sun 12noon-5pm and a 7am-11am (see below for our daily night trips) this to suit your fishing needs..
We mainly fish with clams and clam chumming during the day as well as eels..bait fishing is done mostly in the bay and inlet areas...then when the main run of striped bass are on there way down the beachs to there winter grounds in the Hudson river or Chessapeake bay then diamond jigging in the ocean with 2 to 6oz silver or gold jigs...In my opinion diamond jigging is the most fun and effective way to fish for striped bass..Sometimes there are acres of fish feeding top to bottom 30 to 70ft of water ..birds diving with 20 to 30lb striped bass crashing the surface in my opinion is by the most exciting fishing you can experience...
