Teacher's Pet Sport Fishing

Teacher’s Pet Sport Fishing is located in Highlands and offers to show you a memorable time in these waters. It has got over 30 years in the charter boat business, fishing from the same slip for those 30 years and the same waters. Capt. Jerry and his crew have a proven record of catching fish. They strive to keep the action going, you are not taking them fishing, they are taking you fishing. They will be too busy taking care of you!

Capt. Jerry will do his best to make sure you have a fun day full of fishing. This involves 4 to 12-hour trips, mainly fishing for Bass, Bluefish, Seabass, Scup, Shark, and Tuna, depending on the season and conditions on the day. On these trips, you can expect to use techniques such as bottom fishing, trolling, big game fishing, drift fishing, jigging, and kite fishing.

You’ll be fishing from the comfort of a 38’ Topaz boat that can safely take up to 6 anglers. It comes with ac and an ice-box. This sport fishing boat has got a wide beam and large cockpit. It can get out of the rain, cold, and summertime heat. Also, there’s a full-size private bathroom. Thanks to its powerful engines, you can spend more time fishing and less time traveling. This is important when you’re going long distances for the big fish. This can relate to hours of fishing compared to other boats.

All rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price so you can focus on what really matters, fishing. The crew’s bait is only the best available, the crew gets it daily and recognizes that fresh bait makes all the difference. Your trip will include all the necessary fishing licenses for the day. The crew will clean and fillet your catch for you to take home at the end of the trip.
