A personal bonus tag to keep a third fish is available to all individuals who register for a NJ bonus card. The cost is $2 per tag.Once used, you can obtain another, with an unlimited amount available, one at a time.

Live Bunker fishing if available will be our first approach with jigging a close second. When using live bunker it’s a team effort in the snagging of the bait. The bait is controlled by the crew in an effort to be fair for all.
A conventional 6’-7’ rod with a reel loaded with 30 -40 pound test mono is best for fishing live bunker and jigs.
A spinner with 20 -30 pound test matched with a stout 7’ rod is well suited for snagging bunker.This can also be used to fish the bunker with 30 pound test.
All tackle needed is sold on the boat: snags, rigs and jigs....
Rental Rods are available for $5 conventional and $10 Spinning.
