The summer bite is on aboard the Benchmark fleet

July 13th, 2016

The bluefin tuna are in as we proved over July 4th Weekend with Kevin Rivera and crew and with Capt. Jim at the helm, going 5 for 7 on Bluefin up to 80lbs and they got a noce yellowfin to top it off.

Come join us for our 4 hr summer special trip with the family or go all out with a 12hr bluefin or 24hr canyon trip.

We look forward to seeing many new and all our loyal return customers as well.

Check out frequent pictures and posts to facebook and like us while you are there.

Call capt. Jim or myself to book your date now.

Spring has sprung, Stripers are in. Come join us

April 28th, 2016

Capt. Jim and new deckhand Dennis ran the first couple trips of the season this past weekend with a mixed bag of Striped bass and Blackfish. It wasn’t spectacular for the crew on the Benchmark but they put a catch together both saturday and sunday. The bass haven’t been found in the ocean yet but that is only a matter of days. Maybe this weekend.

Anyway we are excited the 2016 season has gotten underway, come join us. We still have some very good dates available this spring and throughout the summer.

Magic hour 3pm-8pm trips will be available throughout May and June for $850. Stripers, seabass, Fluke and Blues.

The Family 4hr trip will be offered again from May through September this season, great for beginners and kids. We stick to the 2 local reefs closest to our inlet, within sight of land and typically can catch a  nice mixed bag of Fluke, seabass, ling, blues and occasionally some Bonita and cod. You never know what you will find. 

Seabass opens May 23rd 

Fluke opens May 21st

Call Capt. Nick @ 732-547-5688 or Capt. Jim @ 201-788-2236 to book the date of your choice.
