We have sad news to report that Captain Stan Sr. passed away on Sunday, April 19.
To all of our fishing friends I am reporting the sad news of the passing of Captain Stan, Sr. on Sunday, April 19, in his sleep, after a short illness. His love of the sea began in the early-1950's when he started fishing on the family skiff every weekend in Raritan Bay or the ocean with my grandfather and it never ended. He left the electronics industry in 1974 in order to start his own fishing business, first with the original Elaine B before purchasing the current Elaine B II in 1986. In the past 45 years it was an extremely rare event to see anyone other than himself behind the helm each day of season which was the way he liked it! I began working with him back in the beginning, on days off from school, and have never stopped in those 45 years! He was able to produce great catches of whatever fish species was in season through the years but it was the fluke and blackfish that became his specialties and the fish that most of our clients love to catch most, then and now. You will be sorely missed and never forgotten by your family and friends. Thank you for all of the countless great memories and time we shared together Capt! I WILL CHERISH THEM ALWAYS! CALM WINDS AND FAIR SEAS ON YOUR FINAL VOYAGE DAD!! Jr.
