The amount of time determines where we can go what we fish for, and how we fish. Four anglers is ideal for the size boat, although I can legally take 6 passengers. Typically, I do not have a mate on board, but can hire one if requested. The mate typically gets a 15% tip for coaching anglers through the day, cleaning fish, and generally helping.
We bottom fishing for seabass, fluke, scup, or tautog.
We troll for striped bass, bluefish, bonito, and false albacore
The Full Day Experience:
The full day trip is for fisherman who want to spend 8+ hours on the water fishing for Sharks, Codfish, or Tuna. We only book these trips when there is a reasonable expectation for success. These trips are more costly because we venture off shore, Sharks, Cod, or Tuna in that order are the target species and we just don't have the fishery around here or the calls many of these trips. These trips are more expensive because of the bait, chum, larger equipment, and time for travel. ($800.00+)
Half-Day & ¾ Day charters are the most popular trips because they offer a reasonable amount of time for travel to the fishing grounds, time to find and catch fish and return to the dock. The half-day trip is from 6:00 am until noon. We like to leave the dock a bit earlier in the early summer and later in the fall due to the changing sin rise. The ¾ day trip is from 6:00am unto 1:30pm ($650.00-$750.00)
Minimum 4 hour trip is for local waters within a few miles of the port of Galilee. These trips are popular with families on vacation who what to catch some fish, and are not interested in being on a boat for many hours. We troll for bluefish and striped bass than fish for seabass, scup, and fluke. $450.00)
Shared Charters: We have an OPEN BOAT on August (dates to be announced) . This is a 3/4 day trip that is already booked by one angler and there are openings for 3 additional fisherman. . The cost is $140.00 per person and is a combination trip of trolling and bottom fishing. 6:00am to 2:00pm. Includes fishing cleaning, fillets in plastic bags, and iced down. We share the fish equally among the fisherman, although an angler may take a whole fish as a trophy. Consider this option as a gift for folks who are on vacation and just don't like the beach! Call ASAP, when the spots are filled the spits are filler
