Tom Kosinski is a USCG licensed Captain. His passion for saltwater fishing began at a young age after catching his first striped bass with his father while fishing the Navesink River. Throughout the years, Tom gravitated toward surfcasting and traveled all over New England in search of a trophy from the suds. Tom has found a passion for chasing various species on fly and light tackle from his boat. From pursuing giant stripers on Raritan Bay in the early spring, to sight fishing the flats of New England in the summer, Tom is always on the water. Tom has written numerous articles for Surfcaster's Journal and other publications.

We start our season in late March and fish through December.
In the spring, our primary focus is trophy Striped Bass on fly and light tackle.
During the summer months we target inshore Tuna and other pelagic species as well as resident Striped Bass.
The fall is an exciting time as the bass fishing picks up and False Albacore and other speedsters enter the equation.
Whether we are casting flies at early season stripers in the in the back of a creek or running after Tuna down the beach, our fleet stretches many miles in the New York/New Jersey waters.
We also offer evening trips for those who would like to get out after work.
All tackle will be provided, but feel free to bring your own, if you prefer.
What you need to bring:
Foul weather gear
A great attitude!
We have a strict catch and release policy for striped bass.
