Capt Pete’s Fishing Charters

Capt Pete’s Fishing Charters has a trip with your name on it along the stunning waters of Brigantine.

These waters hold game fish like Flounder, Striped Bass, Bluefish, Seabass, Shark, and more, depending on the time of year. You’ll target your catch by drifting, bottom fishing, or maybe something more specialized in this area.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 25’ Parker Pilothouse with room for 5 passengers. It has all the essentials no fishing machine can run without.
You’ll find rods, reels, and tackle waiting for you, along with lures. All bait is included, but you are welcome to bring whatever you would like. An 18-20% tip is recommended for the First Mate on the boat.

Don’t leave home without bottled water, and sunglasses. If you’d like to bring other drinks, just ask. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, so long as you avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.

Captain PJ Mecca is a Brigantine Native and has been fishing there all his life. Get in touch below and start planning your trip today!!

Capt. Peter runs trips out of Brigantine aboard a 25’ Parker Pilothouse. These waters are known for Striped Bass and Flounder and he will show you how to catch them, whether you're drifting or bottom fishing. With many years of experience, he has a trick or two up his sleeve, and the only way to learn is to join him out on the water!
