A Line From the Captain
The waters of Jamaica bay, when the time and season are right hold trophy size fish; most notably striped bass. The bay in springtime is alive as bait moves into the bay and big fish forage on them. Here is where the Karen Ann begins to stalk its quarry. You will experience first hand what live-lining is all about. Herring, bunker, eels and other baitfish will be used to get you that fish for the wall, that's what I like to call our meat and potatoes fishing, ''big baits, big tide, big fish''.
However, live-lining isn't our only forte, and diversity pays off. Purist light tackle buffs and fly-rodders now benefit from our knowledge. The back-bay holds many haunts for fish and our sleek new skiff gives speed and access to all these spots. Our new addition has all the goodies; live well, custom casting platform, and state of the art electronics all enabling you the angler to pursue your adversary, truly memorable fishing.
Our fishing isn't limited to just bassin, as the seasons evolve so does our repertoire, we target all species, bottom dwellers; tog, scup, fluke, all hit the deck as we fish year round. Offshore buffs can challenge their skills and stamina while fishing the deep for shark, tuna, mahi. We can promise you that we aboard the Karen Ann will work as hard as you to have an enjoyable day fishing.
Regards and tight lines.
