Franz and the new LIBATION are joining the Renowned Charter Fleet in Historic Cape May at South Jersey Marina.
Franz’s current success in the charter business has prompted the recent purchase of the 46 foot Buddy Harris. After the first two years of starting and running LIBATION CHARTERS, LLC it was evident that customer demand was overshadowing the ability of the 32 foot Sea Vee. Due to our incredibly loyal client base, we have grown in ways that did not seem possible in the current economic environment.
Although relatively new to the charter fleet, LIBATION quickly earned the reputation as one of Cape Mayís top producing boats in 2011 and 2012. The Captainís lifetime of angling and boating experience in the South Jersey waters has certainly helped to make this possible. Even though we have a myriad of migrating species, striped bass and tuna have always been the favored quarry.
Franz has traveled extensively to hone his fishing skills and knowledge. This includes running his own boat from Teaches Lair Marina in Hatteras, NC for 7 years catching Blue Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, and Wahoo. He has chartered numerous times in the Florida Keys pursuing Sailfish, Tarpon, and Bonefish. Chartered in the Mayan Riviera, Mexico for Sailfish, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for Pacific Striped Marlin. And most recently 5 trips to Costa Rica to chase Pacific Sailfish, Blue and Striped Marlin.
Franz has found luck in both life and career paths. Hard work, determination and honesty are the building blocks that have allowed this growth.
