Summer Breeze Fishing Trips

Choose Summer Breeze Fishing Trips in Neptune City, New Jersey for a unique fishing experience. Join Capt. Jim, a knowledgeable guide who has been fishing these waters for most of his life. He will take you fishing on Shark River for Fluke, Flounder, and Stripers when they are biting the most!

Step aboard a 22’ Sweetwater Pontoon, powered by a 90 HP Yamaha engine.This boat can carry six passengers through the river in safety and comfort. She comes equipped with fishfinder and all the gear you need.

Between May and early September, Capt. Jim will take you Fluke fishing. These summertime specials are fun to catch and happen to be some of the best eating fish on the East Coast. They will stick around Shark River until mid October, but can only be targeted for catch-and-release at that time.

Just before your luck runs out with Fluke, winter Flounder will make their way to these waters to spawn. Join Capt. Jim and target this tasty fish from October through December.

Stripers will be in full swing toward the end of September. Striper fishing is best at night, and Capt. Jim has got this tactic down to a science. As many as four passengers can join him after dark, targeting Stripers with specialized gear. On this trip you will use Penn Battle spinning rods and graphite poles. Capt. Jim will also provide 30 lb test line along with Bomber and Rapala lures that he has customized to catch the Stripers’ attention most effectively.

Summer Breeze Fishing Trips provides a fishing license and all the gear you need. You can keep your catch and it will be cleaned and filleted for you.

Nature is unpredictable and fishing may not always be ideal; Capt. Jim does his best to deliver a successful and enjoyable experience. Book your trip and he will contact you to make sure you head out on the river when your chances are best.

Join Capt. Jim today and bring home something delicious for dinner!
