Fish On Charters (Sandy Hook NJ)

A fun day on the water is right here, with Fish On Charters. Join Captain Big Mike and explore the inshore waters of Raritan Bay and Sandy Hook. The trips are available year round, so you can start your adventure whenever you want. Even if you’re not an avid angler, you’ll have an amazing time on the boat. You only need a bit of positive energy and you’ll learn to handle the rod in no time.

It all starts on a 26’ Shamrock that accommodates up to 4 guests. This cuddy cabin is well known for its safety and comfortable ride. She’s powered by a 500 HP Power Marine engine and reaches the speed of 20 knots. The boat features Simrad GPS, a fishfinder, and 2 VHF radios, so you can count on finding the best fishing spots in the area. For your convenience, there’s also a private toilet.

You can choose a bottom fishing trip where you’ll target different types of species, such as Flounder, Weakfish, Black Seabass, and Porgy. You can also take a trip that specifically targets Stripers! It all depends on what you want to catch. Either way, you get to keep the catch.

All fishing equipment is covered by your captain and you don’t need to worry about it. You only need to prepare your fishing license and pack some food and drinks for the day. After the trip the captain will also clean your catch, so feel free to bring a cooler and save your fish for later.

Fish On Charters welcomes anglers of all ages and skill levels. Confirm your trip and let the adventure start.
