JUNE/JULY TUNA & TILE SPECIAL
For thoses that love to catch tuna and tile fish we added a special for June and July. $3,295 plus tip for a minimum of 28 hours. We will troll for tuna and when you are in the mood to switch gears we will deep drop for tiles. Overnight we will mako fish and get back on the troll in the morning to catch the dawn bite.
JUNE/JULY OVERNIGHTER SPECIAL
We have added an overnight special for those folks that love to troll tuna/marlin/mahi all day and shark at night in warm calm weather. We will leave the dock at 9am on day one and arrive on the grounds around 12:30. We will troll into the night for tuna and of course bigeye. Once we are done trolling we will set out the shark baits and catch makos, we will then get back on the troll at first light for the tuna bite. This unique trip allows the anglers prime time on the grounds for trolling not only do you get the evening bite (which was not available on our standard day troll trip), but you get the early morning bite as well. We are putting you in a position to catch more fish and at a discounted rate, as compared to our August - October overnighters.
You arrive at the dock between 10 and 11pm. We load
your food and beverage on board, the weather is good,
the boat is iced down and you're ready to go. We throw
off our bow and stern lines at 11:30pm heading for the
edge. Your captain has a current temperature chart showing
75 degree blue water in the Tom's Canyon a 90 mile trip,
you and your buddies chill in the salon watching VCR
tapes or just crashing until dawn. You are awakened
when the twin cat diesels pull back, it's false light
4:30am. You have a fresh cup of coffee and step out
onto the cockpit to find the mate putting out the spread
of lures, you watch with eager enthusiasm you want to
help him. No problem, we encourage your participation
it's your charter. At first we're looking for color
changes - weedlines and birds. The sun is just starting
to show, what a site if you have been out there before
you know what I mean, it's breathtaking, all of a sudden
the captain turns hard to port. He sees a few shearwaters
working then all of a sudden the long rigger goes off,
then the inside rigger and then all hell breaks loose,
you have six to seven rods go off and it's mayhem. Fifteen
minutes later your have five 40lb. Long Fin and two
70lb. Yellowfin in the box. The stink is out of the
boat and everyone is excited. Your captain makes another
couple of passes and nothing, so you search again. It's
now 9am and the sun is up and it's hot. You put on the
sunscreen and have a snack, all of a sudden the boat
picks up speed.
The captain has spotted a Whale 1/2
mile to the east, you run up top with your camera to
snap a couple of photos when suddenly it happens. The
first flatline goes off then the second before you can
get back down stairs five lines are screaming off 80lb.
test line. The captain stops the boat but the reels
are still screaming. The mate looks up at the bridge
and he and the captain know, "It's the Wolfpack"
5 Bigeyes just crashed your pattern, it's total chaos,
the captain barks orders like a marine drill sergeant
he says, "First one hooked is the last one in",
you and four of your friends are direct hooked to 190lbs
of pure power. It's now 10am and your back is on fire
your standing up to "The Man" then it happens
two of your buddies lines cross and as quick as they
came, there gone, now it's you and your other two friends.
The mate is coaching you the entire way, you get him
close but every time he sees the boat he peels another
30 yards of string. You want to pass off the rod to
one of your buddies who got cut off, but your pride
won't let you. You're in for the long haul. It's time,
the captain is now operating from the cockpit controls.
The mate has the long gaff, it seems to take forever.
Bang! What a shot right in the head. The first one's
on the deck, 175lbs of Bigeye Tuna. When it's all said
and done 3 for 5 all 175 - 190lbs.
It's 11am and you feel like you just
went 10 rounds with Tyson. You pop open a cold one and
relax for a while. You just experienced New Jersey Canyon
Fishing at it's best, you wonder "Are we heading
in now" Hell No, the Jenny Lee holds 1000lbs of
ice and the Bigeyes are already put away and the mate
is rigging fresh Ballyhoo, you help him set the lines
and it's back to the troll. It's been quite some time
without a strike when you spot a large pallet floating,
you yell up to the captain and he swings on it. Holy
Cow! a 30lb Bull Dolphin jumps like he's gone mad, it's
in the boat, it's fresh Mahi Mahi for dinner tonight.
It's 1pm and you know you'll be heading in soon. You
really don't want to leave the canyon, as you bask in
the afternoon sun. Your stirred by the captain who sees
a "Bill" in the spread. The mate drops back
a naked Ballyhoo it's a White Marlin. Bang! he's on,
2 jumps and a head shake and he's boat side, you get
the picture, it's about 70lbs what a shot. You just
released your first ever White Marlin. It's 2pm and
it's time to head for the beach, on the way in the mate
cleans your catch and bags it for you. some of your
buddies head for the air conditioned salon. You instead
sit up top with the captain and just take in the ride.
It's now six pm and you can see Jenkinsons Pavilion
in Point Pleasant. Your home, What a Trip - you can't
wait to come back next year or next week.
It's 10am and your arrive at the Jenny-Lee, it's a perfect
September day. You meet the captain and mate and you
begin loading your gear and food. It's 10:30 and your
on your way, but you have no clue as to where. The good
news is, the captain does, he has word there was a great
bite at the east elbow of the Hudson Canyon. You are
on your way ETA 1:30pm. You spend a hour up top with
the captain asking all sorts of questions then you decide
to go down below an take a nap it's a long two days.
You're awaken when the engines idle
back it's 1:45pm and your trolling the Hudson Canyon.
See our "Trolling Trip" section for complete
details. It's now 7pm and the captain decides on where
you'll fish tonight, when the anchor comes tight you
are in 600' of blue water and the cockpit fish recorder
is red with bait. For the next 10 or so hours you are
on the chunk and it can be wild. The mate starts throwing
out the cut Butterfish 5 or 6 pieces at a time and you
and your friends ask if you can help, after a 2 minute
school you are responsible for chunking the cut baits.
It's now pitch black in the Hudson and all you can see
is the faint lights of the other sport fishing boats
in the Canyon. While your throwing the bait you see
a quick dart in the water "Squid" the mate
jigs for them with an ultralite rod, smack he's got
one. Immediatley he sends it out on a standup 50 outfit
and within 2 minutes line is screaming off the outfit.
Your buddy pushes the lever up to strike and it's a
"Dog Fight" 70 lbs of Yellowfin and your pal.
The captain yells keep chunking, Bang! a second line
goes off, a second tuna on, it's mayhem. Ten minutes
later two 70lb. Yellowfins are in the box and the school
is under the boat. The mate is now chunking because
you are catching squid for live bait. You now have a
live squid on every rod and it's a "Mad Dog"
Two hours later you guys are soaked
with sweat and 13 70-80lb Yellowfins are in the box.
It's midnight and you and your buddies take advantage
of the lull to eat. After eating you take a snooze while
the mate tends to the chunking duties. At 3am you hear
one of your buddies scream "Fish on the Deepline"
with the light stick went off you got it, it's a Swordfish.
A fast and furious battle ensues you can see the light
stick in the gin clear canyon water it's 20' down. Here
he comes WOW the mate takes the long gaff and the captain
grabs the leader. Boom! It's done 175lb Swordfish is
in the boat. The catch of a lifetime and your pal is
shaking. It's now 5am still dark and still chunking.
Your at the back of the boat throwing the bait you look
in the "Underwater" transom light, custom
to the Jenny-Lee. You thought you saw something so you
throw another piece of bait, you where right.
Fish in the slick everybody is up
and you are sightfishing for Yellowfin. It's now 7am
you put 5 more Yellowfin in the boat and you released
another 5. The captain gives you the choice you have
18 70-80lb Yellowfins in the box, we can go home or
troll for a Marlin or perhaps some Mahi Mahi, two of
your guys want to head in but there out voted, you decide
to troll a couple of hours. It's a quiet morning not
much going on you pass by some lobster pots and some
small Mahi Mahi are caught. It's now 10am and you know
that you'll be heading in soon. Bang! The center rigger
goes off but the boat keeps going while we have a fish
on then you find out why, all the rods go off one at
a time. It's a school of Longfins you land 7 of 8. Wow
