Babu Sport Fishing Charters - 19’

(4) In demand!
5th St. South & Bay Shore Ave.
Brigantine NJ, United States

Brigantine, New Jersey means one thing to anglers – fabulous inshore fishing around the many islands and inlets of the area, with the ocean bringing in bigger beasts closed to the shore. Babu Sport Fishing Charters knows this well and will put you on the hottest bite in this productive fishery!

Climb on board Captain John’s 19’ Twin Vee Catamaran. She’s quite spacious thanks to her hull design and can easily carry 3 anglers fishing at the same time so bring your best fishing buddies with you. She’s powered by a 115 HP Suzuki engine, which allows you to travel at a maximum cruising speed of 32 knots. The onboard fishfinder ensures that you spend as little time as possible looking for the fish and as much as possible fishing for it.

Capt. John will take you after a wide range of tasty fish that live in the area. Black Seabass, Flounder, Bluefish, Black Drum, and Weakfish are just some of the species you can target. Striped Bass fans will be happy to hear that Cow Stripers are on the catch list; going after them with light tackle is a rewarding challenge!

You will be provided with all the fishing equipment you may need: rods, reels, and tackle. Don’t forget to bring a cooler, so you can bring your tasty catch home – the captain will clean and fillet it after the day is done.

If you’re ready for some serious Striper action or just want to cast some lines in peace and quiet, book a trip with Babu Sport Fishing Charters and set off on a memorable fishing adventure!

Beatiful day and my stepsons each caught plenty of fish and one keeper each.  Captain James is a great guy and he knows his stuff.
