Sligo Sportfishing invites you to enjoy high-end angling experience out of Point Pleasant, New Jersey. The company is run and operated by Capt. Anthony O’Donnell, a native fisherman with a decade of professional experience.

Join him aboard the ‘Sligo’, a 38’ Henriques Flybridge boat. She is a spacious vessel, equipped with the latest fish-finding and navigational electronics. The Sligo comes powered by twin 540 Cummins engines and can cruise at a hair-raising speed of 30 knots.

The Sligo has plenty of fishing space for up to 6 anglers. She also features an air-conditioned cabin and a restroom for your maximum comfort while spending your day on the water. All aboard!

With Capt. Anthony, you will be able to find a trip that suits your personal needs. If you want to wet a line without having to go too far out, battle trophy Striped Bass, massive Flounder, Bluefish, Sharks, and even Bluefin Tuna.

For those who are up to a challenge and have the itch to fish, there is a selection of overnight packages that will take you trolling for Blue and White Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Albacore Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna, and Bigeye Tuna to name a few.

All trip prices include fuel, tackle, bait, and ice. Your captain will supply a selection of lures, fishing licenses, and drinks. Tip for the Mate is not included, so make sure to leave one. You will begin your trip by catching live bait.

Captain Anthony O’Donnell has been fishing for as long as he could remember. Born and raised in New Jersey, Anthony had his first offshore Tuna trip when he wasn’t even 10 yet. Fishing is in his blood and he especially enjoys teaching others. Having captained various boats for a decade, Anthony started his own business a couple of years ago and has never looked back.
