Amethyst Sportfishing Charters invites you on a trip of a lifetime with an experienced crew in the waters of Delaware Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. The charter is operated by Captain Paul and a professional mate who have fished these waters for over 30 years. They encourage families, women, and children to join them for unforgettable fishing and learning experiences!

Captain Paul operates a 33-foot Pacemaker Sportfishing boat powered by twin 210 HP Cummins Diesel engines with a maximum cruising speed of 18 knots. The boat is safe and reliable being equipped with the latest navigation and USCG- approved safety equipment. It also features a comfortable salon you can relax in while taking a breather from reeling in, a toilet, and a fridge for your convenience.

This beautiful vessel called the Amethyst will take you to the inshore or offshore waters depending on the trip option your choose. There are half days and full days, as well as 6-hour trips that can all fulfill your fishing dreams.

The bottom fishing trips will target Black Seabass, Flounder, and Croaker; the inshore are good for Bluefish, Spanish and King Mackerel, and Bonito. The offshore waters produce Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo, Blue Marlin, Thresher Shark, Mako Shark, and more.

Amethyst Sportfishing Charters will provide you with the necessary fishing gear including rods, reels, tackle, and bait. You are welcome to bring along food and drinks for the day, which you can store in the onboard fridge. You will need to obtain a fishing license for your trip, so please make sure you do so prior to the trip. Also, the mate works for gratuity, and it is customary to tip him 15-20% of the trip’s price.

tried our best to find fish action, but bottom fishing was no good, so
we gave a more expensive trolling trip and put on a lot of extra miles and you got action without any extra charge
and thats the thanks we get, don’t need customers like that!
