30 Line Sportfishing aims to show you a memorable time on the water. Captain Frank offers a wide variety of charter options that range from striped bass in the bay to offshore tuna.

In the spring, we target Striped Bass in the Raritan Bay. These trips are action-packed and you’re just about guaranteed to bring home dinner! During the late spring and summer months, we target Seabass, Fluke, Tuna, Mahi, sharks, Blackfish, and whatever else you would like to fish for out of Ocean City, NJ starting in June.

Your fishing adventure starts on our 33’ Hydra-Sport Sportfisher. This boat is outfitted with twin 2023 Suzuki 300 hp motors, a full cabin with a stand up head, and galley. This boat was purpose built for offshore fishing. This boat is capable of overnight canyon trips for tuna and swordfish.

30 Line Sportfishing uses all top-notch gear and tackle to provide you with the ultimate angling experience. Your trip will include all the necessary fishing licenses for the day. We are a professional and friendly crew, and have the ability to coach the newest of anglers. Your catch of the day will be filleted and bagged for your convenience. Gratuity for the mate is always greatly appreciated.

Time limits for all trips are approximate. We love having fun out on the water just as much as you do. If the fish are biting and the crew is having a good time, were not too strict with coming back exactly when the trip is “over”. Well gladly stay out if the time runs over if the crew is having fun and we don’t have to be back right away for another trip.

30 Line Sportfishing hopes to see you out on the water!
