These species offer lots of action and a great fight. You will be fishing with bait (cut or live) and medium tackle, which work very well with the fish in this area. When you get into the fish it can be non stop - and really fun.
Striped Bass arrive in late May, and stay through September
Bluefish arrive in July, and also stay through September
Giant Bluefin Tuna
These giants range from 200 - 1000 pounds, and are the most powerful fish in the sea, with an intense fight to match. Once you land a bluefin tuna you will never forget the experience. We use mainly live bait. Common sights on these trips are whales, sharks, seals and dolphins.
Bluefin Tuna season begins June 1st and runs through October
Federal Law denotes a keeper bluefin as 73” or larger. These tuna(s) will become property of the boat, and you are entitled to 1/4 of the sale, to a maximum of the charter fee paid
