  • Trolling: In this type of fishing, one or more lines are baited with lures or bait fish and drawn through the water. Methods: from behind a moving boat or by slowly winding the line in while fishing from a static position. Types of fish caught: rockfish, bluefish, and Spanish mackerel.
  • Bottom fishing: A weight is tied to the end of the line and a hook is positioned about an inch above the weight. You can also use the weight to cast or throw the line a set distance. Fish targeted: ground fish such as spot, white perch, croaker and rockfish.
  • Chumming: Ground-up fish (chum) is thrown into the water to lure a variety of fish by their sense of smell. Species lured by this type of fishing: rockfish and bluefish.

Following any fishing trip aboard the head boat or one of our charter fishing boats, complete your fun-filled day by allowing us to prepare your big catch. Simply bring "ready to cook" fish fillets to the Rod 'N' Reel Restaurant and our Chef will cook it
