Fins and Feathers Outfitters

Invite the family for a fun day of fishing off the coast of New Jersey with Fin and Feathers Outfitters! Captain Jim Weiser will take you through the Intracoastal Waterway, Delaware Bay, and further out into the Ocean to give you an authentic Northeast fishing experience.

Jim is a Master Captain with the U.S. Coast Guard, a patient guide and teacher, and extremely knowledgable when it comes to fish habitats and various fishing techniques.

Your trip will take place on a 23’ Parker center console, equipped with top-of-the-line navigational equipment and safety gear. She also comes with removable outriggers and downriggers, a live bait tank, and state-of-the-art fishing tackle. Each trip accommodates up to 6 guests and children are welcome to join, however, you’ll typically stay more inshore on kids’ fishing trips.

You’ll be able to explore the Delaware Bay and target Flounder, Bluefish, Striped Bass, Black Drum, and many more. You can bottom fish, troll, drift, or challenge yourself to some fly fishing as well. Fly fishing trips are typically reserved for 2 people at a time and you’ll be provided with all the necessary equipment. You can also fish the Intracoastal Waterway and target other inshore species, such as Spotted Seatrout or go on an exciting crabbing adventure!

Nearshore waters produce many species that are fun to target, such as Bonito, False Albacore, Tautog, Sharks, and more. In the summer and fall months, you can head more offshore to troll or wreck and reef fish for a wider range of species, such as Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and Wahoo.

Whether you’re an avid angler or just want to enjoy the scenery and sit back and relax with the family, Fin and Feathers Outfitters have got you covered! Your fishing license is also included, so all you need to bring is food and drinks and get ready for an exciting journey!
