This trip is very popular for families with younger children. They find 2 hours to be “just right” for introducing the young ones to fishing or being on a boat. Our marina is minutes from productive fishing grounds so we can maximize time with “lines in”. We have rods and reels that are designed for smaller hands.

We take great pride in helping and coaching kids.

This trip is also good for “big kids” with limited time.

Mates work for tips, 15 - 20% is appropriate.

When the ocean really begins to warm up, the bigger Flounder (Fluke) like to move out to the reefs and wrecks. Bluefish, Sea Bass, Trigger Fish can also be caught.  Porgies/Scup and Weakfish (Sea Trout) can show up in late Summer/early Fall. From about mid - July until mid - October we can incorporate snag and drop or trolling for coastal sharks, Cobia or a variety of small tunas or mackerels.

For the past several years, stripers have not shown up in our area in any great numbers until around Thanksgiving. In recent years, the heart of the run was about from late November until early January. We check reports and run self-prospecting trips before offering to clients to assure a reasonable chance to find the big ones. Yes, we have bonus tags. These are trolling and/or jigging trips. We prefer jigging :-) 

 

Ages 10+ recommended

Many conisder them to be the tastiest of the bottom fish.

 

We double anchor. Green crabs and, if available, white leg crabs are provided.

"Toggin" can take a little practice to get the hang of hooking them and wrestling them out of their hiding spot.

It's a lot of fun. We do not recommend this trip for younger anglers with limited or no experience.

Child Friendly? We believe parents are the best judge of their kids’ readiness to go on the ocean. We recommend age 10+ for this trip but leave that decision up to you.

By regulation, we are limited to 6 passengers. New Jersey saltwater fishing is seasonal due to fish migration patterns and regulations. If you are not sure what specie might be available at any time of the year, or you want to target a particular type of fish, such as flounder, bluefish, tog, striped bass, or tuna please call us with any question and we will let you know what is currently available or when we will be targeting the specie you have in mind.

Mates work hard and for tips.  A 15 - 20% gratuity is appropriate. 

All bait and tackle provided. License (permit) is covered by the boat. No individual license required.
