Captain Frank Crescitelli, Host of The Fin Chasers television show (, owner of Guides Secret lures, and Fin Chaser Charters ( joins his Co-Host, Baseball Legend Wade Boggs as a current IGFA World Record Holder. Frank ‘s submission to the IGFA was recently confirmed as the new World Record for All Tackle Release Striped Bass length.

While fishing aboard his 28' Buddy Davis, off Ship Bottom, NJ on 5/31 Captain Frank landed the world record fish using a Temple Fork Road and Cortland line and live bunker as bait. Captain Frank’s 117cm catch was enough to break yet another IGFA record for the Fin Chasers. Capt. Frank was fishing with Greg Myerson when the previous record was broken.

Following up the breakout first season of The Fin Chasers, filming for Season 2 is now underway. Season 1 had over 1 million viewers witness the catches of the Fin Chasers team win tournaments and break numerous IGFA records, including 4 for Wades wife Debbie Boggs! Season 2 will premiere June 26, 2017 on Destination America and the September 25, 2017 on the Pursuit Network. The destinations, records sought, and tournaments entered will put the Fin Chasers up against their biggest challenges to date. Costa Rica, Southern Florida, The Bahamas, and all up and down the American coasts the Fin Chasers will put their skills, gear, and passion to the ultimate tests.
