Monster Hunter Charters 

Would like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves. We are an Upstate New York based Charter fishing service that provides both novice and experienced anglers the opportunity to fish for trophy sized Striped Bass, Salmon, Trout, Muskie & Pike. Throughout the year, we target these fish in different locations with tried and tested techniques. In the spring, we charter fish the Hudson River for Striped Bass.In the summer months, we can be found fishing Lake Ontario for Salmon and Trout. In the  fall months, we are fishing for Muskie and Northern Pike on the Mohawk river. Between the Captain and crew, we have over 30 years of experience fishing offshore, near shore, the Great Lakes and Inland Waters. We LIVE TO FISH, and it is with that  passion we have gained priceless knowledge and experience. We will strive to provide you with the best charter fishing experience possible, and we will work tirelessly to put you on the fish time and time again 

Captain Justin

Hello, my name is Captain Justin, and I am the owner of "The Monster Hunter" and "Monster Hunter Charters". I have been fishing for 25 years now, in offshore, near shore, the Great Lakes and the Inland water environments. 

I have also fished overseas, recreationally and commercially. I am most at home when on the water, and I find great enjoyment in providing people with the fishing adventure of a lifetime! Welcome aboard and Tight lines.


Hello, my name is Dennis, and I'm a crewman aboard the "Monster Hunter". I am also a Troy native and have been fishing  waters as long as I could hold a fishing rod. I own and operate my own vessel on the Hudson River and Lake Ontario. When I'm not working on putting customers on the fish, you can find me out on the water chasing some tail.


Hello, my name is Mike, and I'm the first mate aboard the "Monster Hunter". I am a local, who was born and raised in Troy, New York, and have been fishing the shores of the Hudson River, Mohawk River and Lake Ontario for the past 30 years. I know these waters like the back of my hand because this is my backyard! Come aboard and let me take you on a tour of my stomping ground!


Hello, my name is Matt, and I'm also a crewman aboard the "Monster Hunter". I have been fishing alongside Captain Justin, Mike and Dennis for 10 years. Striped Bass fishing is my passion and in the spring, come the wind rain or shine, you can find me chasing down Striped Bass on the Hudson River. I also own my own vessel and spend much of my free time fishing.
