May, June: Scup, Seabass, Striped Bass, Fluke
July, August: Fluke, Bluefish, Scup, Seabass, Striped Bass
September, October, November: Tautog, Seabass, Scup, Bluefish, Striped Bass

Our inshore charters range from 5-10 hours and are perfect for all angling skills.


Ready for big game action? Book an offshore charter. We specialize in fishing the Canyons targeting big game such as White & Blue Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Tuna (Yellowfin, Big Eye, Bluefin), Wahoo, and the occasional swordfish.

Our 38 Northern Bay cruises at 24 knots in comfort to get you on the fishing grounds faster than most other boats in the area. Our captains and mates are offshore fishing veterans. When it comes to fishing offshore and the canyons our staff, techniques, and equipment are the best.

We offer day offshore and overnight canyon trips. We also offer shark charters specializing in Mako and Thresher.
