OU SportfishingNJ Fishing Spring Preview - Delaware Bay, Inshore Wreck, and Back Bay Fishing Starts April 1!

Book Now for Best Dates!

2011 here we go!  After another long winter up here in the NE weâve been fine-tuning the Justified (48â Ocean) and Harbor Tails (34â Mirage).  Harbor Tails will be splashed April 1st and ready to go, we plan on running 5 and 8 hour Delaware Bay Striper and Drum trips to start the spring fishery off.  This spring weâre keeping Harbor Tails up the Bay, then eventually moving down to Cape May, where she ended last seasonâs Striper run.  Our goal is to keep Harbor Tails as close to the best action as possible in the Delaware Bay!  JUSTIFIED will be berthed at its home in Avalon and be available for inshore wreck trips, flounder, and blues, until it begins its offshore shark and tuna trips in June. 

Cape May Striped Bass FishingStriped Bass Trips - April 1 - June 15
Your first chance at great spring Striped Bass action starts well up the Delaware Bay.  Before the fish take to deeper water, we target them in the shallows, often sight casting to them. Whether its chunking clam or casting poppers, if the bite is as awesome as it was last year, there will be plenty of opportunities to catch that Trophy Bass this Spring in the Delaware Bay. 

Up to 6 people on our 34' Center Console

5 Hour Striped Bass Trip - $600
8 Hour Striped Bass Trip - $750


Drum FishingBlack Drum Trips: May 15 - June 7

In May, we will start running dedicated Black Drum trips in the Delaware Bay.  The past two seasons the drum bite has been red hot!  This fishery will start getting really good in late May around the new and full moons.  It will be a short run, anywhere from 3 to 6 miles to the fishing grounds.  These monsters range from 25 to 70+lbs and are fished much like Striped Bass, anchored and chunking clam.   The tides are critical, and when you get bit hold tight!  

Up to 6 people on our 34' Center Console

5 Hour Drum Trip - $600

 Wreck FishingWreck Fishing (Tataug, Sea Bass) - April 1 - June 15

While Harbor Tails is pounding the DE Bay for Stripers and Drum, Justified will be remaining in Avalon, fishing the local wrecks for tog, inshore trolling for monster blues and searching for big Makoâs offshore until mid June when the Tuna start to show up.  We have dates open for the spring season so give us a call and we will pencil you in.  If you think you might have trouble finding guys to fish with we will have an open boat list so you can sign up.  Its time to take the fishing gear out of the closet and get ready for a great spring with Over Under Sportfishing Charters.
