This involves 5 to 8-hour trips, mainly fishing for Tuna, Bluefish, Bass, Cod, Black Sea Bass, and Haddock, depending on the season and conditions on the day. On these trips, you can expect to use techniques such as casting with light tackle, heavy tackle for giant bluefin tuna, trolling, big game fishing, jigging, kite fishing, and using spinning gear.

Your fishing adventure starts on a 26’ Boston Whaler boat that can safely take up to 4 anglers. This boat comes with a small toilet and ice-box. Onboard, you’ll also find a variety of casting gear, light trolling gear, and heavy-duty tuna gear. Complete repower for 2023 with new twin Suzuki outboards. USCG safety inspected boat.

The crew will clean and fillet your catch for you to take home at the end of the trip.
