New Jersey Fishing
View the latest New Jersey Fishing report, supplied by The Sea Devil.
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.

Boats out to the Hudson for our last Tuna trip of the season. We had nice weather going out even though the forcast was lousy . We anchored up and with in an hour Leo hooked into our first Swordfish (80 lbs) of the night
at the same time as Leo we also lost a Swordfish. Not a bad start to our night. We had to deal with the Blue Sharks all nite, but it didn't prevent us from landing 2 more Swords up to 100 lbs as the night went on. One was also caught by Shelly Abramowits. We did release a few pups as well.Around 5am we started picking at the Longfins, seeing loads of fish under the boat but hooking only 1 or 2 at a time. They came and went getting shots of fish till about 7:30am. Then just a few more , John Diantonio hooked the last fish while we were pulling up the anchor.In all we came home with about 15 Longfins.
What a great group to take out for our last trip of the season. We will be running for Stripers Friday, Saturday and Sundays for the whole month of November. And Nicole will be open in the Galley with draft beer , hot coffee , breakfast , and lunch. Call for more information.

Mon Oct 28
Our Firday Oct 25 Tuna trip was not as much luck as we had hoped to have. It was a very quiet night . As dawn was hitting the tuna was under the boat but not wanting to feed. There was a lot of Blue Sharks around the boat. Even though the crew and guests did not give up it was a slow trip. We came home with 2 Longfins about 30 pounds and 1 Yellowfin about 60 pounds. Let's hope that this coming weekend will get better.
We will be sailing for Stripers this Friday Nov. 1 and next Saturday and as well. Be at the Dead End Dock by 7 am.

Mon Oct.21 We had perfect weather for this trip after yesterdays strong NW winds. Had perfect conditions upon achoring up , lines straight out the portside. Around 1:30 am Bobby Yunker boated a nice 60 pound Yellowfin and 70 pound Swordfish caught by steven Traven. A little before 5 am we started to see nice size Yellowfins around the boat. Chris Groger jigged 2 fairly nice size squid as the fish started up around the boat. At times from 90 to 150 feet. Chris hooked in and boated a nice Longfin about 30 pounds. As the trip progressed we saw more fish, but caught less. Gary Smith boated a 40 pound Longfin. As the morning continue we saw 10-12 fish swiming right past our jigs at the same depths. The crew had already lightened up everyones leaders, some as light as 30 pounds test, trying to hook up. There was plenty of fish around the boat, getting them to hook up was another story! We had higher precentage of Yellowfins verse Longfins today, but the Longfins seem to prefer the jigs more when they wanted to cooperate. It was frustrating to see the fish and have them not want to eat. Hope to have better luck this coming Fridays trip.
It was a slow start to the night. As dawn approached Dan Kinin hit our first fish of the night. A 50 pound Swordfish. At 8am the hits really began with Rick Congers bring in a 30 pound Longfin. Not long after we had 2 on at a time. Brett Keepers jigging his hardest paid off with a 40 or so pound Longfin.In all we came home with 12 Longfins between 30 to 40 pound and a Swordfish.
SATURDAY OCT 19 TO SUNDAY OCT 20THS TUNA TRIP HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER CONDITIONS.
We are hoping to have even better luck on our Sunday night trip.
I am happy to report that the Longfins and Yellowfins are still out and hungy!! I (Nicole,your galley mate )was blessed with a private trip to the west side of the Hudson Canyon. It was a slow start to the nite with two sword fish that broke off and blue sharks all around the boat. So we went to the west side hoping to have better luck. And we did!! We hooked into a 80 pound Wahoo and 50 pound Yellowfin.Then once more there was 3 to 4 on at a time. All Longfins. At the end of the day we came home with 20 Longfins between 30 to 40 pounds 1 Yellowfin and 1 Wahoo. It was a great trip. Looking forward to going out Friday and catching more!
