Jay Martin has been running Reel Easy Charters since 2001 and has over thirty years of fishing experience in the Kingston area. He’s presented a number of lectures at various striped bass seminars on subjects including the biology of the striped bass, catch and release methodologies, as well as boating safety. A U.S.C.G. licensed captain and longtime resident of the Hudson Valley, Captain Jay also enjoys deer and pheasant hunting with his yellow lab Skipper.
Reel Easy is Captain Jay’s 26’ Penn Yan fishing boat. Her 10’ beam makes for a very stable fishing platform. She’s powered by a 5.7L Mercruiser straight inboard motor, which also provides for a much larger cockpit and flat fishing area. Her spacious and comfortable cabin protects anglers from any potential inclement weather. She’s equipped with cabin heater, VHF radio, and all required Coast Guard safety equipment including life jackets, fire extinguishers, visual distress signals, etc.
