Sligo Sportfishing – Sligo II

Based out of Point Pleasant, Sligo Sportfishing is your ticket to a memorable time on the water.

Come on aboard with Capt. Anthony and Capt. KC, whose main priority is to get you on some fish. Expect to use techniques like bottom fishing, trolling, jigging, popping, and spinning, based on the species you’re targeting. Speaking of which, you have the option of 5 to 8-hour trips, where you’ll be fishing for the likes of Flounder, Bass, Bluefish, Seabass, Tuna, and Common Ling, depending on the specific season and the day’s weather.

You’ll be fishing from a 40’ Willis Beal boat with enough room for up to 6 anglers at any single time. It also includes a toilet, AC, and ice-box. Possibly one of the only charter boats in the NJ area with a Seakeeper Gyro Stabilizer.

When it comes to rods, reels, and terminal tackle, everything you need is included in the price. As for fishing licenses, everything will be taken care of by the captain so you don’t have to worry about it. You’re welcome to keep all legal species caught during the trip.

There will be a first mate on board to help you with anything you need. Tips for good service are always appreciated. Children (5 and up) are welcome aboard so you’re good to get the young ones started early.

Book your trip now and hit the water with Sligo Sportfishing.

Captain Anthony O’Donnell has been fishing for as long as he could remember. Born and raised in New Jersey, Anthony had his first offshore Tuna trip when he wasn’t even 10 yet. Fishing is in his blood and he especially enjoys teaching others. Having captained various boats for a decade, Anthony started his own business a couple of years ago and has never looked back.
