Sligo Sportfishing

(4) Going fast!

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. You will begin your trip by catching live bait.
