Canyon Eagle III

Make an adventure out of your next trip in Perth Amboy and go fishing with Canyon Eagle III.

Around here fishing is popular for Striped Bass, Flounder, Black Seabass, Bluefish, and more, depending on when you go. On these trips, it’s common to bottom fish using light tackle.

Families making a day of it will be glad to know that kids are welcome aboard! Children must wear life vests, so find out if the appropriate size is available on board. Snacks are never a bad idea to stay fueled throughout your trip!

Your boat for the day is a 75’ Gillikin headboat with space for 70 passengers. It comes with all the essentials. There’s a toilet on board for your convenience.

Rods and reels are not covered by the charter, so ask the captain about bringing your own or renting some for an extra cost. Be sure to ask about bait and lures as well.

Trips are run with the help of a First Mate. Mates work hard to make your trip count, so a 10–20% tip is customary.

You will need to get a local fishing license before the trip. This information is usually available online, or you can ask the captain. Some species may be off-limits or require a special tag, so make sure you know what to expect.

Some essentials to bring are sunscreen (non-spray), a hat, bottled water, and sunglasses. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, just be sure to avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.

Now’s the time to experience fishing in Perth Amboy for yourself, with Canyon Eagle III!
