Sign Me Up Fishing Charters

3900 River Road
Point Pleasant NJ, United States

Sign Me Up Fishing Charters offer nearshore and offshore fishing charters from the picturesque fishing town of Point Pleasant, New Jersey.

Captain Mike Placo will be your guide aboard a new Sailfish center console that was built in 2015. Measuring 30 ft in length, this roomy vessel has space for up to five anglers plus the captain, and its convenient T-Top will provide shade throughout the trip. Powered by twin Mercury engines, the boat will take you quickly to the fishing grounds, allowing you plenty of time to fish. Brand new electronics complete the packet, with a GPS, fishfinder, and radar all available to help the captain put you on the fish. The boat also features a toilet in the head, which is especially appreciated by any fisherwomen on board.

Sign Me Up Fishing Charters specialize in nearshore fishing for species such as Fluke, Flounder, Striped Bass, and Blackfish (Tautog), and they also travel further offshore to target Mahi Mahi and Tuna when conditions allow. The fishing techniques you will use on your charter depend on the season, but they usually involve trolling, which produces the best quality fish. Live lining and chumming are also popular, and usually attract a large number of bites. It is also possible to fish the wrecks, either jigging or using live bait.

Captain Mike has many years experience fishing the local area and will always work hard to put you in the best spot for catching fish. He supplies top quality fishing gear, which is predominantly by Penn, with some Accurate gear also used.

Great experience with Captain Mike and his mate. Sometimes the fish just don’t cooperate but Captain Mike worked hard to get us on the fish all day. Will definitely book another charter when we get the chance. Mitch

We took our grandchildren, ages 8 and 7, on a half-day charter with Captain Mike. It was a terrific trip! The kids caught 10 fluke, including two keepers. They learned a lot and had a wonderful time. The website said this outfit was “kid-friendly” and they were very much so. We fished for fluke inshore, visited an island and swam in the inlet, and trolled in the Manasquan River. We would charter with Sign Me Up Fishing again in a New York minute!
