Captain John De Mio has been licensed by the United States Coast Guard since 1987. He has been fishing for Striped Bass in Sandy Hook and Raritan Bay for over 25 years, New Jersey's hottest area for trophy Striped Bass. His knowledge of the area and the Striped Bass will make for a successful Bass fishing experience. Fishing the Sandy Hook area with its deep channels and dredge holes also gives our anglers a great opportunity to fish for Weakfish and door mat size Fluke.
