These trips target some of the largest Striped Bass caught in Jersey water all season!
It’s common to see limit catches of Stripers (2 Stripers bigger than 28” per person)
in the 20- 40 pound range with pool winners close to 50 pounds.
A personal bonus tag to keep a third fish is available to all individuals who register
for a NJ bonus card. The
cost is $2 per tag. Once
used, you can obtain another, with an unlimited amount available, one at a time. Use the following link to

Live Bunker fishing if available will be our first approach with jigging a close
second. When using live bunker it’s a team effort in the
snagging of the bait. The
bait is controlled by the crew in an effort to be fair for all.
A conventional 6’-7’ rod with a reel loaded with 30 -40 pound test mono is best
for fishing live bunker and jigs.
A spinner with 20 -30 pound test matched with a stout 7’ rod is well suited for
snagging bunker. This can also be used to fish the bunker with
30 pound test.
All tackle needed is sold on the boat: snags, rigs and jigs....
Rental Rods are available for $5 conventional and $10 Spinning.
