Lady Di II Fishing Charters is owned and operated by Capt. Diane Bade. Diane began fishing on the Raritan Bay as a young girl with her father. She has used her early experience on the bay to expand her knowledge and expertise to become one of New Jersey’s successful female fishing captains. After many years of recreational fishing, she decided to start her own charter business. She believes that fishing should be fun for both the novice as well as experienced anglers. The Lady Di fishes in local waters in and around Raritan Bay and specializes in catching fluke, striped bass, weakfish, sea bass and blues. For those who are more adventurous, we offer offshore tuna trips, and for the fisherman who wants to enjoy a wonderful day with their son, daughter, husband or wife, or the businessman who wants something other than a golf outing, the Lady Di will guarantee you a pleasant and memorable day of fishing on the water.
Diane offers cruises for those who prefer something other than fishing. What better way to celebrate a special birthday or celebration, or a girls’ day out, while having lunch or dinner as you relax and unwind while enjoying the beautiful surroundings of the Navesink River or Sandy Hook Bay.
