New Jersey Fishing

View the latest New Jersey Fishing report, supplied by Party Boat NJ.

Some of the best and most diverse year-round fishing occurs at the New Jersey Shore. Due to the Gulf Stream, the Hudson River Flow and the Delaware River Flow, the Jersey Shore produces a wide variety of species, such as bluefish, striped bass, fluke, weakfish and more.

Anglers can surf cast from selected beaches or enjoy fishing the inlets. Many half-day, full-day and nighttime party boats operate out of marinas on the New Jersey Shore.

Marinas can be found in Cape May, Wildwood, Long Beach Island, Atlantic City, Sea Bright, Belmar, Brielle, Point Pleasant and Seaside.

Visitors may enjoy a few hours of blue fishing on the Atlantic or even an overnight big game fishing trip via party boat.

Great Day to Wrap up the 2017 season! Beautiful weather and Hot Action with Strtipers to 31"  We were able to keep a few and add some Bonus fish but most were short and released for another day! Hi-hook had over a dozen Bass with many folks in the 5-10 bass count.  Thanks Again for your patronage! Hope to see you aboard next season

Dec 3 
Very Nice ACTION for smaller fish plus slots size.  Many folks had 3+ bass with diamond jigs working best! Tomorrow, Monday Dec 4, WILL BE our last day of the season.  Weather looks very nice 50's and calm with sunshine! Hope to see you aboard. WE WILL DEFINITELY have enough to sail! 

Dec 1 
Very Good Morning for the Nutanix charter! We picked at Bass well until 10am with most fish in the 27"-33"range.  Shads and diamond jigs worked well.  Uncle Stoney was aboard and had 3 nice Stripers on a hammered diamond.  Weather looks Super for early December this weekend.  Hope to see yo aboard! 

Nov 29 
Another good day of action with Blues to 13 pounds and some Keeper Stripers mixed in.  Jim Steel had 7 Blues, John Lamond had a bunch of Blues and a nice Keeper Bass.  Herb won the pool with a slob Bass caught on a diamond jig

Nov 26
Today was much better than the past couple! We had some action with Bass and Blues mainly late in the day.  We only threw back one short Striper and the others were all quality fish.  Tomorrow looks good as does most of the week.  See ya Aboard 

Nov 25
Lots of fish out there for the trolling boats but very difficult again for boats who can't troll. Capt Hack was Back as we caught Jack today. Can't say it any more truthfully than that! Read fish watch trollers get many but we couldn't get a sniff today. Maybe with the good Westerly winds tomorrow they will snap like they should. See ya aboard



Nov 24
Tough Again! Rode all over the ocean to find very little.  A few Blues and Bass all day

No Good we never found the hungry fish just a handful of nicer size Bass. Sam won the pool with a 20+ pounder. I read fish all day but hard to catch. 

Nov 22
Very Good first few drifts then it got slower and slower. Hi-hook had 8 fish


Nov 16
Good Action Continues!  We started with a bang! Today was very good to start and terrible to finish. Jigs, Krocs, Shads & Mojo's all produced when the bite was on early this AM.  As the morning progressed we picked fish here and there but it was all over by 11AM.  The tide dropped out the sun came out and the winds started to howl.  This the fish did not like! We a very nice catch and many had their limit.  A-47's plain again worked best overall.  Remember we are chartered Friday.  Weekend Weather, Sunday is Best as Saturday could be a blow out

Nov 15
Another Fine Day for Striper Action! Though they were not jumping in the boat like yesterday.  Many had their Limit of under 43" & a bonus fish.  Frank Vavino had 5 fish to 32" Bill & Paul each had a Keeper and a Bonus.  Bill Holden the Patriarch of the Wednesday Gang won the pool with a 35" fish and added a few others.  Jigs again best, but the Shads and Mojo's did hold their own.  We will sail Thursday.  Fishing is HOT so Come Get SOME! 


Nov 14
SUPER ACTION for Stripers! Simply Awesome action on A-47 jigs gold and chrome plus shads worked well too.  Retired fireman Pete said it was his best day jigging ever.  He landed over 28 Stripers, won the pool with the 36" he kept along with a 27" bonus fish.  All the others were released.  Pete was using a plain A-47 hammered jig.  Full Boat Limit before Noon is makes for an extraordinary day! We will fish Wednesday & Thursday, reminder that this Friday we are privately Chartered.  Hope to see you aboard! 

Nov 13 
Went the wrong way! It happens now and again and unfortunately will not be the last time.  We did manage a few but still kicking ourselves for getting sucked the wrong way.  Tomorrow we will hope for better results 

Nov 12 
Better today! More fish and warmer temps.  Tons of boats making it tough but we picked some mixed sized fish.  Again it was not enough for the big crowd we had but we tried our best and many got one
Nov 11
COLD COLD COLD today! WE couldn't believe how many boats were out in this cold weather today.  We caught some nice Stripers but not nearly enough for the crowd we had.  Plenty of fish around and weather looking very nice Sunday & Monday.  Hope to see you aboard 

Nov 10
Blustery Conditions made it tough to drift and present baits and lures yesterday.  Drifting over 2 knots in the heavy winds we did manage a few and lost some others! All nice size keeper fish though.  Weather gets better by mid-day Saturday when the winds will drop and the temps get back to normal

Nov 9

Big Storm no sail today or tomorrow.  Tuesday should be a go but Wednesday will be nicest day of the week
Oct 28 
Started Quick and we picked for a bit at the Jumbos on jigs.  The wind came up fast and hard early.  As the seas built the fishing dropped off.  Those who dropped to the bottom stayed busy with seabass.  Sunday & Monday will be too rough.  Hope to get our first Tuesday's Striper Marathon in, but stay tuned for a weather update.  See ya aboard

Still Lots of Fish around but getting tougher to catch each day.  Sunday & Monday we concentrated on SeaBass more than Blues.
Oct 18
Lots of Fish Around but tough to catch. Read fish all day! Catching them was the rough part. We did get a good shot at Albys early before we ran off to look for the Jumbo Blues. Tons of fish but we only slowly picked at them on jigs. New Bob was Hi-Hook with 4 Big Blues. Bob was using a Gold Hammered jig. Weather looks great thru the weekend.  Don't miss out on great weather in late October. Sea bass opens Sunday Oct 22, so we can keep SeaBass as we have been catching many while jigging for Blues. 
Oct 16 & 17

The Annual day after Labor Day Charter with All State Septic from Bangor PA. again was a huge success! The weather was rough but we were anchored up before the wind really came on.  The Mackerel were thick and we picked many Bonito & Albacore to keep it interesting.  Bruce won the pool with one of his 6 Bonito.  Cole came out to fish the last day of Summer before School. He had 5 Bonito and over a dozen Alby.  Small diamonds and other shiny lures worked best.  Tsunami's are also starting to work.  Weather looking very nice Thursday Thru the weekend.  Come on down and enjoy the best Bonito & Alby action in a few years

Very Good Start with Blues on jigs then then the Mackerel took over with some Bonito & Albys mixed in.  The current changed and the action slowed around 11AM.  I took a ride and we jigged some Blues on most drifts.  Nice Day! 

Aug 26

Aug 7-11
Overall it was a nice week of SeaBass and Mackerel Action.  Wed was Stupid with  the Mackerel. Thursday was Sea bass & Fluke. Friday saw our first glimpse at late summer action.  Found an area of Bonito to jig but we got sharked out 3 times. Mixed in were Spanish Mackerel, Skip-Jacks a few Blues and Seabass.  The weekends weather Sunday is Best. See ya aboard

Aug 5
Rain was gone before we departed this morning.  Mackerel were thick but tough to catch early and easier after 10am. Lots of Macks on jigs and bait. We did have a bunch of shark bites too. Bert fought a large Black Tip and a few smaller Hamerhead Sharks.  Good day overall. Sunday weather is Top Ten! Come on Down

Aug 4
Another Fantastic Day aboard! Jigging for Macks was very productive.  Bring your light Spinning rods and small jigs.  Those who had enough Mack Attack action went to the bottom and caught their fill of Seabass.  Fine Day! Weather will be dry from 9am on and overall will be a great day! Hope to see you aboard
Aug 3 
Wild Shark Action surprised us mid-morning today!  We were gathering up the Blues and Macks along with some Bonito when the reels started singing.  A school of Black tip, Dusky & Brown Sharks invaded and any bait was attacked by the fast hard fighting predators!  Rebecca, 12, using a light spinner subdued a 30 pound Dusky.  We had Sharks up to 6' long hooked up and released boat side.  After the sharks moved away we moved inshore and finished up with SeaBass. 

Aug 2

Nice Day spent Fluking with the Morristown Beard Day camp group.  With seas still bouncy from the East wind since Sunday, I elected to take the group in the river.  Conditions were right and the gamble paid off.  The idea was action and we caught plenty of Fluke!  Lots of Action as many had 3-4 Fluke each.  Though we didn't keep much the action kept the kids at the rail with smiling faces.  

July 18

June 21-23
Sorry I didn't get to update the actual reports but the Homepage Highlights were updated.  The Magic Hour Stripers fizzled and ended as a complete hack.  Never was ever really good except for a couple nights.  Wednesday & Thursday were very tough fishing as Blues have gone non-existent, so we bent some rods with Fluke, SeaBass and other bottom feeders.  Sunday appears to be the much nicer Day this weekend.  If you are flexible come Sunday 

June 19 & 20 
Too Windy no sail.  Wednesday looks very nice and Thursday may be even nicer, Friday looks good from here too Sunshine & Calm seas
Hope to see you aboard

Happy Fathers Day
On the slower side again today.  Weather wasn't great with Fog coming & going and the South wind came up hard making for a rough ending.  Again, those who really worked at it did catch some.  Jim was Hi-hook with 7 Blues.  The Mazzola family had a nice day getting 5 Blues and won the pool.  Weather looks tough Mon & Tuesday but Super Nice for Wednesday - Friday.  Please join us later in the week

Thick fog put a hamper on the day for many.  The fishing was on the slower side but did perk up after 11:30.  Again those who really put the effort in did better.  Morgan Dluhey and her father Bert combined for 9 Blues.  HI-hook was Shea with 10.  

June 16 
Slow action for the morning trip but those who worked at it all day had a nice catch.  Cecil was hi-hook with a dozen.  BDM Charter did well with the Blues on the afternoon trip
