Big T & Sons is a first rate charter service specializing in big fish and great memories. Join them for a New Jersey fishing experience you won’t forget.

Captain Tom Hill has been fishing ever since he was just 3 years old. He has fished up and down the east coast of the United States, developing and honing his fishing techniques so that he always has something up his sleeve, whatever the occasion. He will do everything in his power to put fish in the boat and show you a good day on the water.

Captain Tom fishes aboard the ‘Fluke n’ Around,’ a 25’ Wellcraft boat that is powered by a 225HP Evinrude E-Tec motor. With top speeds of up to 36 knots, this boat will get to the action in no time. The wide and spacious deck offers a perfect fishing platform for up to six anglers, while the boat comes fitted with outriggers, a live bait tank, an ice box, and a Lowrance GPS, fishfinder, and VHF radio to help you get the most out of your day. For your comfort, there is a portable toilet on board, as well as a kitchen with a sink and grill.

Big T & Sons uses a variety of techniques to help you get the most out of your day, including bottom fishing, trolling, spinning, jigging and popping. Captain Tom carries a variety of types of gear aboard every charter so you can combine different fishing styles depending on the bite, and he will get you targeting species such as Striped Bass, Bluefish, Fluke, Porgies, Cod, Bass, and more. He will even be able to help you land a delicious Mahi Mahi when they come close to shore in the Fall.

Trips include rods, reels and tackle, live bait, lures, and the crew can clean your fish at the end of the trip.

Arrived and weather looked ok, once we got out, it was pretty rough. Captain Tom asked if we’d like to power through or come back another time because this was my sons first time fluke fishing…what a great guy! We decided to try again another time…excellent captain and great guy!

We would like to thank you for a fun day out on the ocean being our first time on a private trip . Fishing wise was so so but you tried your best to get us fish and we appreciate that. Im looking forward to the fall so we can catch some strippers.

Thanks Trent,
It was fun having you the experienced fisherman and your family aboard teaching your daughter how to fluke fish her first time on salt water. It was nice to see her catch one and also miss some but she has the feel now sorry for the circumstances that we had to cut the trip short, hope all is well see you again before you or if you do go back to Texas
Thanks,
Capt.Tom
