Your group of six can climb aboard the 25ft Parker Boats Center Console, powered by 225 HP Yamaha engine. There is a livewell on board, top navigational equipment, and all USCG Certified Safety Equipment. Dubbed “Banana Proof” this boat doesn’t believe in the myth of the banana!

Premium Charters offers half day (4 hours) and full day (8 hours) fishing trips. Included in the trip price is fishing licenses for all anglers, rods, reels, bait and tackle. Captain John will also clean and bag your catch at the end of the trip!

If you’re looking for a great day of fishing with a top Atlantic Ocean fishing charter – Captain John and Premium Charters has you covered! Both inshore and offshore trips are available: inshore fishing means we’ll be targeting Bass, Flounder, Weakfish, and more, while offshore we target Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Sharks and more! Captain John prefers to throw jigs and poppers to the tuna instead of trolling.

Snap jigging is also a custom technique developed by Captain John where we can catch big fish on light tackle. The goal is to get the very most out of light tackle, and we often catch fish with six-foot spinning rod and ten-pound test reel. On offshore trips we use heavier tackle, but still lighter than the other guys.

Whether you’re visiting Montauk, NY or live in the area- fishing with Premium Charters and Captain John is a great way to spend your day. There’s a lifetime of memories waiting for you on “Banana Proof” – so book your Montauk fishing charter today and let’s go fishing!
