Booyah Sportfishing is one of the best charter boats on the east coast, with a fun and knowledgeable captain and crew. The idea behind this charter is not to make you feel like a customer, but as a part of the team. Captain George will teach you how to ride the boat, set your equipment, and catch fish. You’ll leave the dock with a full cooler for sure.

It all starts on a 35’ Youngs Brothers downeast boat, as you would see on the Wicked Tuna TV show. She’s stable and spacious, so no rubbing elbows. The vessel has been tested time and time again in rough weather and always gets everyone home safe. Powered by a 350 HP John Deer engine, she’ll get you quickly to your fishing spots.

Depending on the season and what fishing grounds you visit, you can go after Flounder, Tilefish, Grouper, Striped Bass, Shark, or even different types of Tuna and Marlin. Capt. George works hard to make every guest happy and ensure a good catch. If the bite is slow, he’ll always stay longer on the boat and help you fill the cooler.

If some guests are not into fishing, they can chill on large bean bags and sunbathe, listen to their favorite music, or read a book while sipping a cold drink.

All fishing equipment is included in the price but you need to cover your fishing licenses, snacks, and drinks. It’s also recommended to bring sun protection.

Booyah Sportfishing is always at your service. Pick a date and get ready to enjoy your day on the water!
