Capt. Brian Rice - As a kid began, Brian began fishing on the Navesink River, using a pair of oars to row a 12-foot aluminum boat and catch snapper blues, weak fish and other small fish teaming the river. Eventually, he graduated to a 16-foot Garvey boat and began bunker chunking for striped bass under the Highlands Bridge in the late ‘80s, when the striped bass population was just starting to rebuild after being decimated from over-fishing. But the bass were still scarce, and catching even one per day was a success. However, the tough fishing honed his skills, forcing him to refine his methods to hook up.

Brian also started trolling on his boat for stripers, and these experiences developed the techniques he uses today to charter for trophy linesiders, which is one of his specialties. In addition, Brian began fishing offshore for big game in the early 90s, earned his captain’s license in 2004, and has presently (almost) fished everywhere from the entire Northeast Coast to the Bahamas and Mexico.

Brian is proven tournament winner, placing in the top five in nearly every competition Jersey Devil has entered, winning the top prize in some of the events, including first place in 2006 American Striper Association Tournament in the Highlands.
