Our mission statement on the Jenny-Lee is a simple one.
Capt. Dave and Capt. Kevin
For you to have the
most enjoyable and comfortable fishing trip that money
can provide. We feel that the Jenny-Lee is one of the
cleanest and most well equipped sport fishing boat on
the Jersey Shore. From the time we leave the dock until
the time we return you are our primary concern. We have
proven time and again to be one of the hardest working
crews out there. The Jenny-Lee is consistently a fish
producing boat. Your catch is always kept in the best
possible conditions. We will ice down your catch, clean
it and bag it for you, at no extra cost to you or your
guests. We encourage our customers to get involved in
the bait rigging and chunking for tuna fish, we also encourage
our customers to assist in putting out the spread if you
so desire, on the Jenny-Lee it's your charter - We work
Captain Dave Bender has been fishing offshore for
the past 25 years and in that time he has become one of the most well respected
captains industry wide. Captain Dave has written many articles on offshore fishing
and they have been in Marlin and Sportfishing Magazines just to name a few.
Captain Dave sold Dave's heavy towing March 2014 after 40 years. Dave is now coaching wrestling
at Wall High School and is an assistant softball coach at Lehigh University starting currently

I get asked all the time "Why
do I charter such a beautiful boat?". We pride
ourselves on having the cleanest most modern charter
boat in the fleet and we truly enjoy taking people fishing.
On the Jenny-Lee you can do as much or as little as
you like. We encourage the customer to get "hands
on" right along side of us.
Come join us for a truly great time,
Captain Dave Bender
You will notice as you read about
our Captains that no one's main source of income comes
from fishing, the love of fishing and taking "You
to the Rip" is why we do it!

late 70's and he owns and operates Peter F. Gahm Plumbing

bite for his charter. When Jimmy isn't running the Jenny-Lee
he and donna are out on the "Toyaholic" a
