Erin Elizabeth Charters

Erin Elizabeth Charters is based on the Beaver Dam Creek in Point Pleasant, New Jersey. They specialize in introducing their clients to both inshore and offshore waters and everything that calls them home.

Explore the bite inshore up to Sandy Hook or as far south as Barnegat Light. Head up to 25 miles out, explore the Manasquan River and the Upper Barnegat Bay. Explore the local reefs and wrecks and try your hand at bottom fishing. Fish with heavy tackle, try trolling, spinning, jigging, and popping for Striped Bass and Bluefish. The opportunities are limitless!

The crew has tailored a variety of packages to meet any angler’s needs. You’ll be able to target Fluke, Striped Bass, Bluefish, Seabass, and other species depending on the season and your personal preferences.

The ‘Erin Elizabeth’ is a 30’ Pursuit offshore boat with a 12’ beam. She can accommodate up to 6 anglers of all skill levels. Kids are also welcome to join in the adventure! The Erin Elizabeth is a family-friendly boat with full amenities and all up-to-date electronics. She comes powered by twin 240 HP Volvo engines and can get you to the fishing grounds quickly and safely.

You will be provided with everything you need to make a great catch possible, including gear and tackle, bait, and fish filleting at the dock.
