Atlantic City has many faces. For some, it's a place to enjoy the casinos. For others, it's the place to revel in the exciting nightlife. And some people are all about the city's fantastic fishing. Atlantic City fishing charters offer easy access to some of the most productive fisheries on the eastern seaboard, and anglers, both local and visiting, are well aware of it.

The city's vast fishing capacity is obvious – you can target a wide variety of species without ever leaving the shore. Flounder – or Fluke – is the most popular catch, closely followed by the mighty Striped Bass. Then you've got Tautog, Bluefish, Black Drum, Porgy, Weakfish… and the list goes on.

Travel offshore and you could hook into Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, Black Seabass, and Wahoo. For those in search of monster catches, there are deepwater canyons where Bluefin and Yellowfin Tuna roam, along with White and Blue Marlin, Swordfish, and a variety of Sharks. The best time to go fishing in Atlantic City is from May–November.

Local charter guides have an array of fishing trips you can choose from. Some specialize in targeting a specific species, like Striped Bass, Tautog, or Tuna, while others organize half day and full day expeditions where you can go for a mixed bag. All you have to do is choose your trip based on how much time you've got and what you'd like to catch. Atlantic City fishing charters will take care of everything else.

Rules & Regulations

When you hit the water with a fishing charter in Atlantic City, you don't have to worry about fishing licenses. Your charter guide will take care of everything. If you're fishing from shore, get to know the regulations and remember to register with the New Jersey Saltwater Recreational Registry Program before you get out.

January

It's cold on the water in January, so if you're heading out, make sure you're dressed for the occasion. Striped Bass are biting hard in the bay, and you can also find Bluefish and Porgies.

February

The weather is still not great, so both the fish and anglers are laying low. Porgies are the main catch in February, with some Striped Bass, Tautog, and Bluefish thrown in.

March

The New Jersey fishing season starts in earnest in March. Blue Crab are open for harvest, and big Sharks are showing up offshore. The first Flounder are being caught in the bay, too!

April

Tautog are back on the menu in April, and everyone wants a piece of these tasty rock-dwellers. Bayside, Weakfish join Flounder, and Shark fishing is gaining momentum.

May

Black Seabass are legal to harvest from May, which is a great reason to fish the local wrecks. The Bluefish bite is really getting good by now, and trophy Stripers are starting to show up as well. The high season is upon us!

June

June marks the beginning of high season for shore anglers and offshore enthusiasts alike. Inshore, Fluke, Bluefish, and Weakfish abound, while in the deep waters, you'll find Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, some Wahoo, and the first Tuna arrive to the canyons.

July

As the weather heats up, so does the bite offshore. Yellowfin, Bluefin, and Bigeye Tuna are all in their prime and the Marlin bite is getting strong. There are also huge Makos roaming in the bluewater, so pack your heavy duty tackle for those long expeditions!

August

August is peak Marlin season out at the canyons, with both Blue and White Marlin in the spotlight. Swordfish are also on the menu, and let's not forget the fantastic Tuna action and lots of Sharks in these deep waters.

September

Fishing is still going strong in September, especially if you're chasing Billfish and Tuna. Inshore, things are equally good, with plenty of Flounder, Porgy, and Black Seabass for everyone.

October

The summer high season is over by October, and the offshore bite slows down towards the end of the month. But fear not, because the action close to shore is on fire. You can target Stripers, Blues, Flounder, Weakfish, Croakers, Tautog, Seabass, and Scup, to name a few. 

November

This is one of the most productive months for Striped Bass fishing, and the same goes for Tautog and Seabass. It does get cold on the water towards Thanksgiving, so make sure to dress warmly before you head out.

December

Enjoy the holiday season with a walk along Atlantic City’s landmark boardwalk, and when you grab some free time, hit the jetties. You might find yourself some nice Stripers, Fluke, Black Seabass, and, of course, Tautog.

Stay in Atlantic City, but cross the bridge and fish with one of the local Charter boat Captains from Brigantine. These guys know the local waters, what is biting and how to catch them!

My second trip with Captain Mike this fall. He put us on the fish, started with a double Striper hook up, the we went Togging. We put 30-40 fish in the boat, amazing time. The skills of this Captain are slightly eclipsed by his skill and knowledge as a fisherman. He put my best friend Steve on his very first striper. An day of fishing, laughs and smiles!!

Wonderful fishing outing for our 3-piece family with Captain Mike. Although we weren't lucky enough to catch fish big enough to keep for the pan at the end of the day, he tried to maximize our chances by changing our location frequently and even staying out longer than booked. Despite the need to modify our dinner plans, highly recommended.

Captain Mike was extremely knowledgeable about the area. He was there whenever you needed more bait, help reeling a fish in, taking us to the “hot spots”, and overall great conversations. Highly recommend Captain Mike. Can’t wait to book our next trip!
