Barnegat Bay Adventures

Barnegat Bay Adventures will help you explore all beauties of the bay 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 23’ Jones Brothers LT boat that accommodates up to four guests, including kids of all ages. This center console features Raymarine navigational electronics, a live bait tank, and a cooler. She’s powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine, so you’ll reach your spots in no time.

You’ll go after Striped Bass, Flounder, Bluefish, Weakfish, Black Seabass, and any other species that roam the bay. 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!
