Barnegat Bay Adventures will help you explore all beauties of the bay or ocean in an unforgettable way. These aren’t just fishing trips! Besides fish, you can also go after Crabs and Clams, or combine everything with an eco tour if you like bird watching. Captain Anthony Grassi has been fishing the bay for over 40 years and he’ll be your guide.

Join him on a 28’ Blue Wave Makaira that accommodates up to 6 guests, including kids of all ages. This center console features Garmin navigational electronics, 4 live bait tanks, and a large cooler. She’s powered by a 350 Suzuki engine, so you’ll reach your spots in no time.

You’ll go after Striped Bass, Flounder, Bluefish, Weakfish, Black Sea Bass, and any other species that roam the ocean and bay. Further offshore, you’ll get the chance to hook into Tuna and other pelagics. Catch delicious blue claw Crabs and have a crab boil at your home that evening. Jump in the water with rakes and catch a bunch of Clams that you can eat raw or make a creamy chowder.

The captain supplies the best gear, whether you are fly fishing for Bass and Blues or light tackle spinning rods for summer Flounder.

In these calm bays and rivers, there’s no seasickness. Whether you are an expert angler or new to the sport, Barnegat Bay Adventures will show you the world class fishery or at least a great day on the water. Join the fun for all ages!
