This charter covers inshore and nearshore areas which include wreck location. Though fish bites all year round, winter is the slowest period, and some species aren’t always available. Generally, you can encounter delicious Flounder, Striped Bass, and depending on the season even Black Seabass and Cod. You can use several fishing techniques like light and heavy tackle, deep-sea fishing, trolling, and drift fishing.

Don’t worry about the fishing gear and live bait as it will be waiting for you on board. What’s more, the charter’s got you covered with a New Jersey fishing license. In case you get lucky it’s up to you whether you’ll keep or release your catch. If you do keep it, the crew will happily help you with cleaning. Have in mind that alcohol is not allowed, with a small exception of small quantities of light beer.
