Buckshot Charters

Come down to the Channel Club Marina in Monmouth Beach, New Jersey to join the crew of BuckShot Charters. Together, you will head out to explore the beautiful Raritan and Sandy Hook bays, along with the Navesink and Shrewsbury rivers and the nearshore waters from Long Island to Asbury Park.

On your day out, you will be specializing in landing a healthy dose of Striped Bass. As well as Stripers, you will be able to target Bluefish, Summer Flounder, Fluke, Little Tunny, Black Seabass, Blue and Mako Sharks, and even Yellowfin and Bluefin Tuna.

Your boat for the day will be the ‘Buckshot’, a 34’ Regulator center console. Fresh on the water in 2017, she comes powered by triple 300 HP Yamaha engines and can cruise at a hair-raising speed of 60 knots.

The Buckshot is not only one of the fastest boats around, she is also a comfortable vessel with an array of navigational and fishfinding equipment. Her top-notch GPS, radar, VHF radio, and fishfinder build up a clear image of where the fish are hiding. Modern outriggers and downriggers are fitted for a professional fishing experience, while a private restroom is there for your maximum comfort. The only thing that’s missing is you!

All the trips aboard the Buckshot are all-inclusive; you will only need to take care of your drinks and snacks.
