Jersey Boy Charter’s fishing fleet consists of two vessels: the Jersey Boy, a 34′ Sea-Lion and the Improvise, a 45′ Provincial.

Jersey Boy Charters’ fishing fleet offers an abundance of catches. Flounder, Sea Bass and Sharks can be found swimming off the coasts of New Jersey, while Mahi Mahi, Tuna and Swordfish commonly inhabit the ocean depths. Other popular catches include Sea Trout, Red Drum, Mackerel, Cod, Tilefish and Marlin – a prized game fish highly sought after by anglers. With Jersey Boy, you’ll have a productive day out on the open water!
Jersey Boy Charters offers a range of charters for any angling needs. Choose from four-hour inshore and offshore trips for many types of fish. Or take a flounder, or sea bass or mahi mahi/tuna 8-hour charter. For hardcore fishermen, longer trips out to the canyons are available with 15 to 30 hours of fishing time for trophy tuna, swordfish and other deep-water species. Shark trips are also available, offering the chance to catch some monsters!
And for those who want to get on the water, experience an unforgettable three-hour sunset cruise along the east coast and soak in the majestic scenery. Relax and enjoy the incredible sights of nature while creating timeless memories to last a lifetime.

    Jersey Boy Carters…. above and beyond expectations! If you are looking for a honest, hard working charter boat Captain look no further than the Improvise. We met Capt. Adrian at the JB’s slip, returning from a morning fishing trip. He was very upfront that it was not a good morning of fishing, and if we wanted to cancel, he’d totally understand.Talk about honesty! Not many fishing charter boat captains would be that upfront knowing he’d be out of several hundreds of dollars if we did. We were already at the dock and wanted to fish, so we asked what our options were? There were 3. Fish the back bay drifting for flounder, which the unsuccessful morning group did. Go offshore trolling for Mahi and drift for Sea Bass. Do a shark trip. After a short group meeting and careful review of expendable funds, we decided to give the Mahi and Sea Bass a shot. We knew going offshore would greatly reduce our fishing time and come at a higher cost, but hey, who doesn’t like a boat ride?? The boat is very clean and lots of moving around space. The mate for the trip was a friendly young buck named Will, who was frantically rigging lines, leaders and prepping bait, and Two hours out, we hit the fishing grounds. The outriggers went out and let the games begin! The Mahi were there and biting, but reluctant to commit. We managed to put a couple in the box and also some decent Sea bass. Captain Adrian asked if we had any plans we needed to get back to the dock for, We said “not really”, So we stayed out an extra hour! These guys worked very hard to get us fish onboard and had fun doing it. We will DEFINITELY be back! THANK YOU Adrian & Will! If you are looking for a boat and crew that are friendly hard working, look no further! 5 out of 5 stars! Rich & Melissa Kessler Butch & Beverly Loggins
