Spring & Fall Striped Bass Fishing From Belmar

We offer both morning and afternoon Striped Bass Charters. After breaking shark River Inlet we start looking for birds or pods of bunker on the surface. We will often start with live lining bunker; where we snag some bunker and let them swim freely until they are taken by a bass. If the fish are a little deeper we would try jigging them with diamond jigs. If there is no bait around or the jigging doesn't work we will set out some Mojos, spoons/and or shads and begin to troll over markings.

Blue Fishing Charters From Belmar

Early in the year we will look for birds and set out diamond jigs and drift for the blues. Often you will get some based mixed in with the jigs. Once the summer hits we head offshore and begin to chunk for them using bait and chum.
 

Summer Flounder Fishing Trips From Belmar

Earlier in the season we fish shallower water around rock piles. We drift all the time and never fish in the sand. All the keepers are in the 'rough stuff'. As the season grows on we slowly head further offshore to deeper water and fish along some wrecks as well as across more rock piles. Be prepared to lose some tackle. It is also a huge recommendation to use Gulp! and bucktails; where it has proven to be much more productive than dragging bait. We do supply regular rigs on board but DO NOT supply bucktails or Gulp!. We do encourage you to call with questions about what to pick up and bring.
 

Bottom & Wreck Fishing From Belmar

Bottom fishing ranges through multiple species; from Ling, Flounder, Cod, Seabass, Porgies, and Blackfish. 
-Ling we fish for from spring to fall with the occasional Cod, Jumbo winter flounder, and lobsters mixed in. We fish anywhere from 10-20 miles anchored on wrecks using clam and occasionally Gulp! to help entice them. 
-Cod we run trips in the winter, spring, and summer, fishing anywhere from 20 to 80 miles offshore on wrecks where we do get a few Pollock mixed in. We use clam and jigs and primarily anchor, but occasionally we will drift when we don't have much wind
-Seabass we fish all year when the season is open. In the spring and summer we usually fish within 10 miles, using clams and Gulp! as bait. We generally anchor up but will often drift across some larger pieces. Once the fall and winter come we start our offshore trips for the jumbo sea bass going anywhere from 30-80 miles.
-Porgies are the summer and early fall fish. We fish local and very shallow. These fish are very fun to catch with extremely light tackle and fight very well. Once the winter comes we will head offshore to catch the jumbo hubcap porgies along with the jumbo sea bass, 30-80 miles offshore.
-Blackfish are probably one of the hardest but most fun fish to catch. We fish for them in the spring in shallow waters using crabs and clams as bait. In the last few years jigging blackfish has become extremely popular and has been extremely successful. We will then resume fishing for them in the fall and all through the winter using solely crabs. And the Jumbos can be caught at any time, no matter spring or winter.
 

Inshore Bluefin Tuna Fishing From Belmar

We leave early in the morning to begin trolling by sunrise. We will fish up to 65 miles and troll throughout the day. If we see some marks and the troll isn't working we will switch to jigging. We will also work some pots for mahi.
 
 

Shark Fishing Trips From Belmar

We leave early in the morning and will fish anywhere from 15 to 40 miles depending on where they're hanging out. We will set up on long drifts with several rods out and chumming heavy. If one area doesn't produce we will pick up and try another area.
 

Offshore Canyon Fishing Trips From Belmar

We target everything from Tuna, Sword, Mahi, Tile, Wahoo, and Shark. We will leave late morning and troll until sundown. Once darkness hits we will set up to chunk and drift all night. We will also set up a deep rod for a sword. Once morning hits and the sun rises we will either continue to chunk or start the day troll again. If we see pots we will stop to pick up some mahi and then after that may stop for some tilefish. We do also do solely tile fish trips as well.
