Wrecking Crew Fishing Charters

Wrecking Crew Fishing Charters embraces the philosophy that your day on the water is your day! Their only interest is to see that you have a memorable fishing experience. Wrecking Crew prides itself on customer service and strives to exceed your expectations in every way. Their success is in no small part owing to the talents of Captain Dave Savidge. Like Mozart played the piano, Captain Dave simply has the talent for finding fish and is one of the best fishermen on the East Coast. Whether entertaining clients, family, or friends, Wrecking Crew will do everything possible to make your trip fun and memorable. It welcomes you to Somers Point, New Jersey, and hopes to see you in the water!

Your adventure starts on a 25’ Carolina Yachts Southern Cross center console, a well-equipped boat that can take up to 6 guests. It’s powered by a 300 HP Suzuki engine and rigged with modern navigation technology comprised of GPS, fishfinder, radio, as well as radar electronics. The boat has got a portable toilet and also features a first mate who’ll be handling everything on the deck.

The species you can go after are Black Seabass, Tautog, Striped Bass, Common Ling, Flounder, Bluefish, as well as Crab. Using both light and heavy tackle, you can attract them in a number of ways, including bottom fishing, deep sea fishing, trolling, spinning, jigging, popping, and drift fishing. You get to keep all the fish you catch and you’re welcome to bring kids on your trip.

Captain Dave will take care of all the fishing gear you’ll need on your trip. This covers you for rods, reels, tackle, and lures. The captain will also provide fishing licenses as well as catch cleaning and filleting, so there’s nothing you should bring on the trip except for the food and drinks of your choice.

Come and have an unforgettable time fishing together with Wrecking Crew Fishing Charters!
