Atlantic County’s first beach town is used to being overshadowed by its famous neighbour, Atlantic City, but the incredible angling offered by Brigantine fishing charters is truly something to brag about. Being lesser-known has really worked to this barrier island’s advantage – come for a visit, and you’ll discover beautifully-kept beaches, untouched waters, and fishing adventures for all types of anglers.


What type of fishing charter is best for me?

Family (and Newbie!) Friendly Fishing

Brigantine generally attracts a family crowd. If you’re traveling with little ones, or are new to angling, the “bay side” of town is the perfect place to begin your adventure. This area is home to a collection of back bays and flats, including Grassy Bay and Little Bay, and many charters are docked close to the hotspots.

Most trips run for half a day, and you’ll mainly be using light tackle to fish for huge Fluke, Bluefish, Weakfish, the much-sought-after Striped Bass, and more. We recommend embarking on your trip during the summer months, when these species are abundant and you can combine fishing with other outdoor adventures!


If You’re Feeling Adventurous

Most captains will take you around 15 miles from shore to bottom fish the abundant local wrecks, as well as the local reefs – a popular spot in particular is Redbird Reef. You’ll be targeting anything from gigantic Fluke, to Black Seabass, Triggerfish, Bluefish, and more.

Trips generally start at the six-hour mark, but we recommend opting for eight hours to get the most out of your adventure. On your journey, you’ll pass through one of Brigantine’s inlets (Little Egg Inlet, Brigantine Inlet, or Absecon Inlet), so you’ll potentially get to test your inshore fishing skills, too.


For Hardcore Anglers Only!

If you’re looking for an unforgettable offshore trip, be prepared to spend at least 16 hours out at sea! This will give you ample time to reach southern New Jersey’s famous canyons, including Berkeley Canyon, Spencer Canyon, and Baltimore Canyon. Here, water depths drop from around 100 feet to an incredible 1,000 feet – and it only gets deeper the further you travel!

Seriously deep waters mean you’ll have the chance to catch some world-famous pelagic predators, including Mahi Mahi, Marlin, and Yellowfin Tuna. The best time to hook these hard-fighters is between July and October. You’ll also be targeting Tilefish, and a variety of notorious Shark species (Mako, Thresher, and Blacktip are common!)

 

What to Bring

Most Brigantine charters provide everything you need, including rods and reels, bait, lures, and tackle. Fishing licenses are usually covered by the charter, too. Bring along:

  • Snacks and drinks! Ice and water is usually provided, but you can bring your own soft drinks. Beer is usually accepted on Brigantine charters, but double-check with your captain.
  • Dress for the weather. This means sunglasses and sunscreen during the summer, and a rain jacket when needed. Most captains recommend you bring a warm jacket year round, as the wind-chill can be uncomfortable!
  • Motion-sickness medication. This is a must for new anglers and families traveling with little ones.

Swap the hustle and bustle of Atlantic City for relaxed beach-town vibes, and get ready to explore the angling opportunities of southern New Jersey’s best-kept secret!

January

Start off the new year in the right way, and head to Brigantine’s back bays to target huge Striper before the season ends. Special Striper trips are especially popular during this time of year!

February

February signals the slowing down of the season, so most charters are out of the water and undergoing maintenance. Available trips focus on heading to the reefs and wrecks, where Tautog is biting.

March

You’ll be able to hook Stripers in March, despite the slow season, and the end of the month is especially fruitful. Alternatively, head to North End Beach and catch the “tail end” of the annual horse-riding show!

April

This signals the start of the season! It’s the perfect time to bottom fish around the many wrecks and reefs, with Tautog, monster Bluefish, and other species biting hard. The annual Fish Fry takes place, too!

May
The first summer Fluke begin to appear in the back bays. Black Seabass can be caught and kept during this month, so get ready to hook them out by the reefs and wrecks!
June

Charters start gearing up to target big game out by the canyons, with Mahi Mahi and Marlin both on offer. In the bays, Weakfish and Bluefish are especially abundant.

July

Visit now if you want to battle Marlin, Tuna species, and Mahi Mahi. You’ll troll at least 80 miles out to the canyons to face these beasts. The Hooked on Fishing youth tournament will also be taking place on land!

August
There's plenty of opportunity to face off against Blue and White Marlin out near the canyons! With the warmest water temperatures of the year, you’ll be spoiled for choice in the bays and around the reefs and wrecks, too.
 
September

Before the waters start to cool, explore the bays for summer Fluke and Bluefish. Adventurous anglers can head out onto the Atlantic, where Black Seabass dwell around the reefs. Offshore, big game fish are biting!

October

The summer season is over, which means you’ll get Brigantine’s waters all to yourself! Mahi Mahi, Marlin, and Yellowfin Tuna are especially abundant around the canyons – hook them before they retreat for the winter.

November

This is the true start of Striper season! As well as cruising the back bays to hook masses of trophy-sized species, why not take part in the annual Brigantine Elks Fall Striper Tournament?

December

Fishing is best in the back bays, with abundant Bass, winter Fluke, and Bluefish. This is a great time to experience just how serene Brigantine’s waters can be, and hook yourself a trophy Striper, too!

Bring sunscreen and bug spray. Take something before you board the boat if you are prone to getting sick. The motion of the boat out in the ocean can get you. Also, drink lots of water if it’s hot and bring a cooler with drinks and food. Have fun!

Yes, I would. My husband and I had only been deep sea fishing one time, my daughters family had not been at all. We had a 6 year and an 8 year old. The captain and mate were patient, kind and very attentive to our needs. It was the best day ever.

It was a little too early in the Striper season but we did get a nice Striper anyway. We had a great time even if the fishing was slow.

Captain Mark and first mate Jason couldn't have done more to make sure we had an excellent day of fishing. Both were extremely attentive and obviously knew where to find fish! With a variety of bait (including fresh live bait) we had every opportunity to finish the day with our limit. The crew were focused on two things...catching fish (duh) and making sure the customer had an amazing experience! Thanks for a great day!

We didn’t catch many fish as the conditions were less than ideal. But Captain Mark and 1st mate Justin did their best to keep us on fish. They were very friendly and the boat and equipment were great.

Capt Mark and First Mate Justin had us on keepers on the first drift during low tide. Instead of staying put and not catching anything, he took us out front and we caught some blues and Spanish Mackerel. When the tide started pushing back into the bay, he had has back on for a bunch more flounder and another keeper. They took great joy in finding the fish and even more so that we were catching them. Great time!

Took a morning trip to the bay as part of a bachelor event. Captain Mark welcomed us right away and made us feel at home on his boat. First mate Kurt was super friendly and very helpful for the entire 6 hour trip. Our party of 6 caught almost 50 fish with 7 keepers - quite a haul. I highly recommend Treemendous Sportfishing. Thanks Mark and Kurt for a great trip!

I highly recommend this boat! Captain and mate worked very hard for us and it paid off. We caught over 30 fish mostly flounder but due to their size most went back in . We were able to keep 8 and everyone had a great time. Give this boat a try.

Great trip. Caught 27 flounder shorts and 22 other fish. Plus 1 nice striper..30 inches. All in all was great. Only surprise was that second mate tip is expected to be 20% ($140). Caught us by surprise. Mate was great and very helpful. Cleaned our fish as well.

Took my father in law and uncle out for Father’s Day while we were spending the week at the shore. It was a blast. We caught about 15 fish, three large enough to keep and bring home for dinner for the wife and family. Captain Mike and Justin, the first mate, were awesome. Right from the get go they felt like part of the family and they couldn’t have been more helpful. Would highly recommend for a great time on the water with friends or family.
