A Full Day Fishing
A True Striper Safari

This is for the angler who is ready to enjoy a whole day on the water. You can plan on spending at least eight hours of actual fishing time. A full day allows us to fish two tide changes and we will take advantage of either Sunrise or Sunset depending on the tides.. I usually prefer to get an early start and take advantage of the early morning bite, but I will base all actual fishing times on the tides, conditions and your desires.

A full Days Fishing for up to three Anglers
Additional Angler add $100

Long 1/2 Day, Full Tide Trip
Four hours of Lines in fishing excitement, This is your best Deal and my favorite!

If you are not ready to spend a full day on the water, but want to hit the best of the fishing, this is the trip for you. Each trip will be custom designed to be fishing during the tide period which is the best for striper fishing. I prefer to fish from the top of the tide thru the first half of the outgoing for the majority of my striper fishing. I would like to include either sunrise or sunset in any of my four hour trips when it matches up with the proper tide. These are the magic times for stripers and I don't like to miss them. Usually trips start about 6 am. and back to the dock around noon.

1/2 Day Fishing Trip for up to three anglers
4th angler add $100 per trip

NJ Striped Bass, Slot Fish Bonus Program
Looking Forward to a 2021 Bonus Program, those 26" Striped Bass are great eating  … and Great Fighters.
The 2021 Bonus Program starts May 15th

Size does matter especially if you want to take a legal Striped Bass for dinner.  I participate in the NJ Charter and Party Boat Program.  If you fish with me and wish to do so, you have a very good chance of catching and keeping a 24" to 28" slot Striper.  If things go well you still can keep a 28" to under 38" Keeper.
Want to fish Catch, Photograph and Release, No Problem.  I am also Tagging Stripers for Grey Fish Tag Research and we can put their green tags in your fish and you can even name them if you want.
