Purple Jet Sport Fishing Charters 2

Going fast!

With Purple Jet Sport Fishing Charters, the waters of New Jersey will be all yours. Jump aboard as a party of 16 or take the whole boat out all by yourself. Check the bite close to shore or venture out for a full offshore extravaganza and fish the canyons. There is a trip for you!

Get ready for a trunkful of delicious fish and a headful of memories that will last a lifetime. Take your family, friends, or colleagues out for a fun-filled day and make a great catch possible. Hop on board the ‘Purple Jet,’ a spacious and fully inspected 48’ Henriques fishing machine that was fully overhauled in 2015.

The Purple Jet comes powered by twin 550 HP Lugger engines and is fully outfitted with everything you need for a productive day on the water. She features top-notch navigational and fishfinding electronics to build up a clear image of where the big fish are hiding. The Purple Jet has all the comforts of home, from 4 spacious bunks to a restroom and an air-conditioned cabin. The only thing she’s missing is you!

Check the bite close to shore and get your hands on Striped Bass, Bluefish, Flounder, and Seabass. Head a bit further out and target Cod, Sharks, and other species that patrol the offshore waters.

But if you are looking for something a bit more extreme, let the crew take you to the canyons up to 100 miles out. There, you will be able to hone your angling skills and try chunking and trolling for Yellowfin, Bigeye, and Albacore Tuna, as well as Swordfish and Mahi Mahi.

All gear, tackle, and bait will be provided for your party. All you have to do is pack your lunch and drinks and show up!

I started fishing with my father as a little boy and continued as a captain after graduating from the University of San Diego in 1990. In 1997, the first Purple Jet arrived and we have been putting smiles on customers faces ever since! The Queen Mary Open Party Fishing boat became part of the fleet in 2011.
