Stared as a captain in 1972, and love having novice customers catch their first big fish. My favorite fish is striped bass.

Thank you Chris.

Captain John and Tim were great!  However, when we booked on “Fishing Booker”  we put that we wanted to catch sharks, blues and other big fish so when we got on the boat and were told we were fishing for flounder and sea bass we were a bit disappointed.  Guessing miscommunication between Fishing Booker and Captain? 
But if you’re looking to catch flounder and sea bass, I’d highly recommend Babu!

Thanks for your review.  Sorry for the misunderstanding, big fish were just not available on a 4 hour bay trip.  Even on the ocean trip the only larger fish available on a 4 hour trip may have been sand shark, and they are protected so we would not have been allowed to boat them.  In the Atlantic City area the tuna and large shark are in the canyons which are 70 miles off the beach.

Fishing Reports

Stripers will be following the blues

Blue fish were very cooperative behind Atlantic City and Brigantine. The back bay blue bite will slow soon, and the striper should start biting. Read Full Report →
