ANGLER Fishing Reports

January 8, 2018 – We are DONE for the winter season.

That's all folks!   The cold weather got finally us!   Thanks to all who fished with us.   Stay warm and we'll see you in the spring.

December 28, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Thursday update.   The ANGLER will not be sailing until after this cold snap is over and it could be some time.   It is just starting to make ice in the Atlantic Highlands harbor.

December 22, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Friday report.   We had a flat calm ocean to start the day.   We said we would start the day with jigs on and stop for Striped Bass if the birds were up.   Normally, it is the kiss of death to try for yesterday's fish, but they were up and feeding.   The Bass were mostly shorts and slot fish with a few over 38 inches.   During the hour that we jigged, HH had over a dozen Stripers.

We then switched to Tog and had a good bite with our best keeper ratio of the day.   The south wind came on when we got the ebb tide it got rolley.   The bite got better, but the size shrunk.   It was not as good as yesterday when we had a northwest wind.   Chet won another tog pool.

Presently, the weather looks good from Wednesday on with northwest winds.   It will be cold, but it's our last chance at Tog with a six fish limit.


Just as a reminder, the ANGLER is an open party fishing boat and you don't need to make reservations.   This applies to all of our regularly scheduled fishing trips.   Like other party boats, we work on a first come, first serve basis, so all you need to do is arrive at the boat anywhere from one to one-half hour before sailing time.  


Our sister vessel, the VOYAGER is an 100-foot all aluminum supercruiser powered by three turbocharged diesel engines making her fast, spacious and very comfortable for deep sea fishing.   Amenities include a heated and air conditioned main cabin with booth seating, a full galley, heated handrails for cold weather fishing, and an upper sundeck with plenty of seating.

The VOYAGER sails from the dock at Fishermen's Supply Co. located at 69 Channel Drive in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ
