When selecting a Barnegat Fishing Charter, look for a captain with knowledge of fishing local waters.

Captain Tom has been fishing Barnegat Bay and surrounding waters for over 30 years. The 28 ft. vessel, Reel Chaos, is a 2014 Regulator Center Console with a full head.

July 26th Barnegat Fishing Report

Today we had a great group of guys for a 6 hour inshore fishing trip, Dan,Arnal and Chris. Dan came up from VA to celebrate his brother Chris tying the knot. Whats a better way then fishing on the "Reel Chaos".We left a little late, breaking Barnegat Inlet around 8;45. Weather service was calling for seas to be around 2 to 3ft. Looked to me they were more like 4 footers with a north wind which makes for a choppy sea. We headed out to some local reefs picking away at some small Fluke and Black Sea Bass. When I decided to make move off the wrecks and find warmer water. Water temp was 71 and fishing in about 55ft of water, we were using killie squid combo and spearing when we found the fish. From then on non stop action and mostly keeper fish. Big fish were being caught just on spearing alone. So stock up on spearing because they don`t last long on the hook. With 12 really nice fish in the box, largest topping scales at a little over 5 pounds the guys decided to go to catch and release. That`s when you no you have good people aboard. Thanks again guys. We will be heading out again tomorrow, give us a call while the fishing is hot...

Open Boat Trips!

Like to fish but your friends or family don't. You do not want to charter the whole boat by yourself.  Beginning this July through the end of fluke season, I will be running open-boat trips out to the ocean reefs.
