Keyport Princess welcomes you for a fine day on the water in Keyport, New Jersey. Join Captain Victor Hartley inshore and nearshore and have fun searching reefs, flats, and wrecks for various fish species. The captain will take you to the best spots and do everything in his power to make your trip the best possible. Pick a day and have a great time fishing around Keyport!

You’ll start your trip on a 75’ Lydia commercial boat that can accommodate as many as 70 guests. Running on 200 HP Detroit engines along with comprehensive navigation electronics, the boat provides for an efficient and safe trip to the fish and back. It’s wheelchair-accessible, has got a toilet, and even features a first mate who’ll be there for any help you may need during your trip.

The fish you’ll target includes Black Seabass, Striped Bass, Flounder, Scup, as well as Bluefish. In order to attract your prey, you can use bottom and deep sea fishing, spinning, jigging, and drift fishing. You get to keep all the fish you catch.

Before you go, make sure to bring rods, reels, terminal tackle, bait, as well as food and drinks. Captain Victor will take care of fishing licenses, so there’s no need to worry about that. For some trips, fishing gear will also be included in the price.

Come visit Keyport and enjoy a lovely day of fishing!
