I'm a life long resident of New Jersey and I've fished the Raritan Bay and Sandy Hook, NJ waters since owning my first boat in the early 70's...... 44 years ago. Early on, my primary target were Fluke and Bluefish and then later into the 80's Striped Bass. I learned many techniques fishing aboard both party and charter vessels during that time.
seminars at trade shows and fishing clubs throughout the tri-state area on the
techniques of bucktailing for Fluke as well as clamming, bunker chunking, livelining
and trolling for Striped Bass.
I really enjoy sharing my fishing knowledge with other anglers as we all have the opportunity to exchange ideas as well as success and failures. I've devoted countless hours attending seminars by some of the top captains in the New Jersey keeping abreast of the current fishing trends. I'm also on the internet often reading reports and posts of fishing trips throughout the NY and NJ fishing area keeping up with the current happenings.
Most of all, I get to enjoy my time on the water with you. Good fishing, great conversation and friendly people......what else could you ask for.

The crew of Reel Fun Sportfishing do many things before, during and after your trip. They are at the boat an hour before you arrive, cutting bait and getting the boat, rods, reels and rigs ready for your trip. They also check all the safety gear before we depart. During our trip, their job is to untangle lines, re-rig fouled or nicked tackle, cut bait, net your fish and give you pointers on how to catch your fish.
your safety, they are in charge of the deck area of the boat. Once we return
to port, your mate will fillet and bag all your fish. Above all, they are
there to serve you. As an added bonus, they are all boat owners,
avid fisherman for many years and most have their captains licenses as well.
Catching fish and enjoying the day safely on the water is what we are
And finally, lets talk about how they make a days pay. Mates work very hard for you. You'll see once you spend the day with us. It's a tough job and not many people can do it! My mates are some of the best in the business. I've been blessed with a top notch crew. The majority of their pay comes in the form of a gratuity at the end of your trip.
Generally speaking, mates work for 20% of the total cost of the charter. Please show your appreciation for their hard work at the end of your charter. My crew is one of hte best in the state and they will teach you how to fish during our trip together.....so please reward them for their hard work.
