Meet Captain Kevin 'Catterman'
Delaware Bay Captain Kevin 'Catterman'
Get To Know An Advocate Of Protecting Our Fisheries, Capt. Kevin! !
The Catterman Adventures, LLC invites you on a thrilling Shark-catching adventure in New Jersey & Delaware! Being both skilled and friendly, your guide Kevin 'Catterman' will make sure that you and your crew have the best time out on the beach experiencing land-based fishing like never before. To say this takes surf fishing to a whole new level is an understatement. Whether you're an experienced angler, or a family with kids that have always wanted to be next to a shark or a giant stingray, this is the experience for you. Book a summer trip today and enjoy an exciting evening/night fishing right from the beach!
Guide Kevin 'Catterman' spent years chasing down the elusive apex predators that visit our eastern shore board every summer and realized that this type of fishing has a whole new learning curve to it. While exciting and thrilling, it also takes a special type of guide to not only show you how to catch them but also how to care for them during the release process.
These fishing trips usually start in the evenings after 6PM EST and run anywhere till midnight or even 7AM. When you book with us we put out several different rods and baits to ensure that our night is filled with fish catching fun. All sharks, stingrays, and other fish caught during the charter will be primarily handled by the Guide himself and his first mates. Some of the species you will encounter include Sandbar (Brown), Sand tigers, Dusky, Spinner, & Blacktip sharks, as well as Smoothhound dogfish (Some species are federally protected and must be caught & released as quickly as possible). We also have the chance of hooking into Bull & Atlantic sharpnose sharks, as well as skates and all kinds of stingrays.
All fishing gear & bait will be provided, we just recommend wearing long sleeve shirts, beach pants, and beach shoes on your trip (and don't forget the bug repellent). Amenities include ice cold water, a Mosquito-proof Enclosure, comfortable beach chairs, and High-Quality images. Video add-ons available (ask me!)
All active anglers (16+ and older) will be required to have a Tidal Fishing License ($10-20 - Delaware trips) or a Saltwater registry (Free - New Jersey)
