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, Captain Frank is looking for fish. 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 something I would have never dreamed of as a child.”

Merritt’s Boat & Engine Works this year celebrated the family’s 100th year of boatbuilding, a tradition that began at the start of World War I when Roy Merritt’s grandfather went to work at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard as a carpenter building oceangoing merchant marine vessels. By 1929 the family was living in Florida, where Franklin LeRoy Merritt built his first sportfisherman for charter off Fort Lauderdale.
