Miami Sailfish Season 2012 - First Trip of the Season


We'll be live bait fishing for Sailfish the next two months out of Miami.  We are fishing OVER UNDER our 54' Bertram, which is set-up for stay-aboard trips.  The boat is in a location right in downtown Miami, close walking distance to many restaurants, bars, and other activities.  The bite has been fantastic the last couple years and this location is about as easy to get to as anywhere, with the boat about 15 minutes from Miami International.  Our normal routine is the load the livewell with baits and as you see, the first trip out, it didnt' take long till the first sailfish of the season was released.  Come on down and join us for some Miami Fishing over the next 2 months.  In addition to sails, we are catching dolphin, kings, blackfin, and can go swordfishing as well.

Striped Bass Fishing Season Kicks Off with 50 Pounder! 

The boat is now in Cape May and started fishing yesterday.  First fish in the boat a 50 pounder (see below)!

We are docked at South Jersey Marina, on charter boat row. 1231 New Jersey 109  Cape May, NJ 08204 (609) 884-2400.  As you come into Cape may and pass the marina, on your left, there is a row of boats, right along the street (before the ships store).  We are one of the first boats on that row.  Parking is just at the end of Charter boat row (north side).

We are fishing JUSTIFIED, our 48’ Sportfish, which is fully geared up with tackle, but if you want to bring your own tackle, no problem.  Please let the crew know the day before the trip when you touch base with them.  We ask you to contact Joe, or Hook, the day before your trip to confirm last minute details, do a double check on the weather, etc.

As far as what to bring….appropriate clothing is the most important thing. Rubber boats are great.  Black soled hunting boots are NOT please.  Gloves, hats, etc are a good idea…it can be blustery and chilly out there on November.  The cabin is fully heated, has a microwave and coffee maker.  Please bring whatever you’d like to eat and drink for your trip and a cooler for taking fish home.  Fish cleaning and packaging services are typically available at South Jersey Marina.

Trips are 5 or 8 hours, depending on what you have booked. If we do NOT have both 5 hour trips booked the day you are fishing, you may be able to extend your 5 hour trip into an 8 hour trip.  Please discuss this with the captain the night before you go.  Once we change our clocks back this weekend, departure times are typically 6am and 12pm for the 5 hour trips, and 7am for the 8 hour trip.

We are primarily chunking in the Bay for the big Bass. On occasion, when the fishing is slow in the Bay or weather dictates otherwise, we will fish the rips and/or troll the ocean side.  Again, the crew can give you the heads up on what’s going on and what are plan is for fishing.  On the rare occasion we fish the rips, we include a dozen live spot as part of the trip.  Extra live bait can be secured ahead of time at your request.

Below you will find directions to South Jersey Marina and a link to their web-site.  Also you will find our Striped Bass Crew’s contact info.  Please contact Capt. Joe with any questions, and if for any reason you can’t get him, feel free to contact Tyler or Hook.  Tyler primarily fishes weekends during November.  I will be away for the majority of the next 2 weeks and have limited access to voicemail and email.

Tight Lines and catch em up,

postheadericon Fall NJ Fishing - Tuna, Swords and Monster Wahoo!

Awesome Action in the NJ Canyons Continues!

Yellowfin, Swordfish, and a Monster 108# Wahoo!


108 Pound Wahooit seems to only be getting better and better as we move later into October.  The full moon didn't seem to stop em from biting the last few nights.  We've run a lot of trips, taken advantage of some absolutely wonderful weather, the over the last 5 days.  Yellowfin action on the Jig and Chunk has dominated, but we did have a good bite on the troll too.  Yellowfin numbers have ranged from ma low of 6 one evening to a high of 34 Monday night.  Several trips were in the 12-13 fish range.  We have caught and boated swordfish on almost ALL of our trips, and even a White Marlin.  This last trip, when we had 35 Yellowfin was the first trip that we have not had good swordfish action.  maybe we were just too tied up with Yellowfin that evening, I'm not sure.  On Friday morning we were treated to a bonus catch, of a monster 107 pound 12 ounce WAHOO!  We had a second explosion on the short rigger after this slob bit, likely missing a second.  I'm pretty sure this is the biggest Wahoo we've caught up this way.  In the Bahamas, these size fish are a bit more common for us, but here in NJ, we don't typically see em this big.  From everything we see out there, we are going to have one of the longest and best Fall fishing runs in 7-8 years.  We may easily be fishing well into November for Tuna, Swords, and Makos.  We have not yet seen the Bluefin come into our waters, and there is  A LOT of warm, blue water still to our North-East, headed our way.  So it is NOT TOO LATE!  Try to get out if you can.  With the New Moon coming soon, fishing should remain productive, if not fantastic.


Tight Lines,


Capt. Trey
