Small Boat Fishing - World Class Fish

Great Kills Harbor - Staten Island NY


My new book is now available for all formats online at Smashwords -

  • Saltwater Stories - the anglerís perspective

  • Put Yourself in the Middle of the Action

    The First Cast is a lean, mean fishing machine. The boat is a 20-foot center console, and you will find yourself in the middle of the action - up close & personal! From live bunker fishing for trophy stripers, to sight casting with light tackle on the saltwater flats. Charter Fishing trips for one to two anglers that get you involved.

    First Cast has produced three current igfa World Records
