Purple Jet Sport Fishing Charters

Purple Jet Sport Fishing Charters specializes in exciting angling adventures for both small and large groups. Whatever you do, Captain David Riback will get you on the biggest fish around. He will send you packing with a trunkful of fish and a headful of great memories at the end of every trip!

The “Purple Jet” is a 48’ Henriques fishing boat which was completely overhauled in 2015. She boasts a pair of Lugger engines that kick out over 1,000 HP between them getting you to the fishing grounds at speed. Once you’re there, her modern marine electronics will pinpoint the best fish around while her skilled crew gets you ready for battle.

What you will be battling depends on the trip you choose. Half days will have you fighting Stripers, Bluefish, Flounder, Seabass, and a range of other tasty fish. Book in for a full day, and you can add Cod, Sharks, and other offshore fish to the menu.

But what if you want something a little more extreme? Climb aboard for an overnight charter, and you could be headed over 100 miles offshore to the deep-water canyons that scar the side of the continental shelf. As the old maps would say: “here be sea monsters!” You’ll be chunking and trolling for Albacore, Bigeye, and Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Swordfish, and more.

Whatever you do, you can rely on clean, private restrooms, fully heated and air-conditioned cabins, and a professional crew which will clean and fillet all your fish at the end of the day. All rods, reels, tackle, and bait are included in the trip, so all you have to do is show up! Just climb aboard are get ready for a trip you will never forget.

I started fishing with my father as a little boy and continued as a captain after graduating from the University of San Diego in 1990. In 1997, the first Purple Jet arrived and we have been putting smiles on customers faces ever since! The Queen Mary Open Party Fishing boat became part of the fleet in 2011.
