A full day on the water is the way to go. All trips have flexible departure times, and Capt. Aaron will always try accommodate your schedule as much as possible.

You’ll target a whole range of species in a wide variety of waters: from Flounder, Perch, Croaker, Seabass, and others in the Great Egg Harbor Bay to offshore action for Red Snapper, Wahoo, and more species in the Atlantic Ocean.

A first mate is also ready for action on board –  he’ll help you out with anything you need as well as clean and fillet your catch. Both the captain and the first mate work very hard for your enjoyment, gratuity is greatly appreciated.
