Shark trips - We leave the dock at 5 am and return sometime in the evening. If we hook into a "keeper" shark we normally will head home early so that we can take pictures and clean the fish. A "keeper" shark is either a Mako or Thresher that is over 100 lbs or over 5 and half feet long. Typically we catch Blue sharks that can weigh as much as 350 lbs. This type of fishing is for people who want to try to catch and reel in a fish that takes every ounce of strength and energy. It is definitely an excellent workout.
Tuna trips -Boat is not ready for trolling tuna, but we do go chunking.
Striped Bass and Bluefishing trips- Trips usually start at around 6 am (starting times can range from 5:30 am to 12 noon depending on the tides). The boat trip takes about an hour to get to the fishing grounds. The Striped Bass fishing is usually best from about June 1st to the end of August. September through November we often catch bigger fish but the action maybe slower. Bluefish can show up at any time and can dominate the fishing action.
Evening and Night trips are also available. These trips usually involve bait fishing using either bunker chunks or eels.
Striped Bass, Bluefishing and Fluke trips - Although many trips start off as a striped bass and bluefish trip often they become striped bass, bluefish and fluke trips. Why? Because many times we limit out on striped bass in the first hour of the trip and end up catching fluke too!! We usually start at around 6 am (starting times can range from 5:30 am to 12 noon depending on the tides). The boat trip takes about an hour to get to the fishing grounds. The striped bass and fluke fishing is usually best from about June 1st to the end of August (fluke fishing slows down at the end of August).
Fluke, Sea Bass, and Scup trips - All these types of fish fall into a bottom fishing category. We usually start at around 7 am (starting times can range form 6 am to 12 noon depending on the tides). We then drift over the hot spots bouncing a sinker and baited hook on the bottom This type of fishing is fun for people of all ages. Being close to shore, along with non-stop action from start to finish makes this the perfect fishing trip for the kids (and adults).
Tautog (Blackfish) trips - Starts in the fall. Water temperature should be around 55 degrees which usually happens around the end of October. This is another type of bottom fishing. We anchor over rock piles or wrecks going from spot to spot until we find the fish. Wind plays a big part of where we go to catch these fish so travel time ranges from half an hour to an hour. The idea is to find a spot out of the wind and over the fish.
