Captain Frank Crescitelli relies on Raymarine and FLIR for productive and safe fishing amidst the bright lights and congested waters of New York City.
The New York City that Captain Frank Crescitelli knows is probably not the New York City you know. While over 8 million NYC residents are busy looking for parking spots, Crescitelli is looking for fish for his charter clients and TV audience. As the owner of Fin Chaser Charters and Fin Chasers TV, Crescitelli’s job is to find fish and catch fish in the highly productive yet incredibly busy waters around the largest city in the United States.
“I’ve been guiding and fishing in New York City for over 20 years,” says the Raymarine Pro Ambassador, who grew up on Staten Island without a lot of resources and three siblings. “Back then, fishing was the most I could ask for. I probably spent 200 days per year on that Naughton Avenue jetty. We didn’t catch much, but it didn’t matter. I was there fishing. To have what I have today and to be where I am in the fishing world is a something I would have never dreamed as a child.”
