Bass Lines Sport Fishing Charters

At Basslines Sportfishing, their philosophy is to provide a comfortable great boat, with top-notch customer service, and an experience of a lifetime each and every trip. Captain Bill has been fishing this area since he was a kid, so he knows the location of all productive fishing spots. With that map memorized, you could almost say he doesn’t need GPS.

Capt. Bill welcomes you aboard his 32’ Century boat. This center console has enough room for 6 guests, with all of them being included in the chase. To help with reaching your spot in no time, the boat is powered by twin 250 HP Yamaha engines. The ride will be more pleasant with a great sound system installed and for better comfort, there’s also a private toilet.

Bass Lines Sport Fishing Charters specializes in fishing excursions targeting Striped Bass in the bay and ocean, as well as offshore trips targeting primarily Tuna fish, Mahi Mahi, Tilefish, and Shark. There’s a variety of fishing techniques you can use and it all depends on what you want to catch and how hard you want this task to be.

The crew provides all gear, bait, tackle, instruction, music, fish processing and bagging as well as a knowledgeable hard-working mate. With a set up like this, you don’t need to be an experienced angler to enjoy this adventure. Just prepare your fishing license and bring some snacks and drinks.

Bass Lines Sport Fishing Charters is ready for your next fishing trip!

Ever since I was a young boy, I have been fishing the Jersey shore. I have years of experience and I find much joy in taking people out fishing. On Basslines, we have many different styles of fishing. We do whatever it takes to catch fish! We cover everything from trolling to jigging to live bait fishing. We can also base our trips on your own preferred methods of catching fish.
