– Party Boat ANGLER Sunday Report. We had a good day with the Tog today and the weather was very nice. If you looked at the weather forecast on Friday, you would say that Saturday looked best. Well it rained Saturday and today was super nice. Joe was on a busman's holiday and had some nice Tog for his birthday. It wasn't Bunt's birthday, but he also did well. Chet Turko
from Elizabeth, NJ won the pool and got a few nice keepers. Bucktail Bob had a slow morning, but the Tog were jumping on his jig during the last hour.
NOAA's forecast is for east winds tomorrow with gusts to 30 knots late morning and afternoon. With that and the crummy forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday, our next trip will be Thursday 4/27.
NEXT TRIP THURSDAY AT 7:00 AM – FIRST BOAT OUT
April 22, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Saturday Report. We went back to where we had good fishing Tuesday, but it was only a pick. Went north and ended the day with plenty of action.
Some folks did okay like Harold Sang
from Long Island who had a limit Blackfish catch and won the pool. There were a few big Ling in the mix. Clams were best, but one angler had a good bite on green crabs on our last drop.
We will be spending our day tomorrow closer to home where we should have more Ling in the mix. The weather is looking poor for Monday through Wednesday, which is not good since there are only 8 days left for Tog.
7:00 AM FIRST BOAT OUT AND GALLEY OPEN
April 18, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Tuesday Report.
Beautiful weather, a flat ocean and hungry togs... we had it all today with limits plus.
A young woman named Marissa Lollo from Stewartsville, NJ had never been fishing on a boat until
today. Well, she made her Dad proud catching fish all day and the pool fish. It was all clams again today.
Our next trip will be Saturday 4/22. We do not like the southeast wind forecast for tomorrow or the rain after that.
NEXT TRIP SATURDAY AT 7:00 AM – FIRST BOAT OUT
April 17, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Monday Report.
We tried to fish where we had a mix of Ling and Tog Saturday, but we could not keep on the wreck. After the southerly wind yesterday, there was a good-sized swell running up into the breeze and current, and the anchor lines went slack. We moved to where we had much better laying conditions. The Blackfish bite was good, but there were too many 14-inch fish. Clams worked the best today.
from Harrison, NJ took the pool with his first ever Blackfish. He also had a Cod.
We are sailing Tuesday at 7:00 AM, but we do not think we will try Wednesday with the forecast for southeast winds or Thursday and Friday with the rain.
NEXT TRIP TUESDAY AT 7:00 AM – FIRST BOAT OUT
April 16, 2017 – Happy Easter! ANGLER Saturday report...
It was nice to sail again with a good bunch of ANGLER regulars. The weather was very nice to start the day, but a southerly wind came up and it got cold. The fishing was best at the end of the day with plenty of short action along with a few keeper Tog and some nice big Ling mixed in. Richard Tasker from Warren Township, NJ had the pool beating out some jumbo ling. Clams were best.
All the reports we had were for no Ling, so we were happy to see some come over the rails and it should get better each day. There were plenty of Bergalls, which help the Ling and Tog bite.
Monday looks like the best weather day of the upcoming week and Tuesday is also okay, but we have doubts about the three days after that.
NEXT TRIP MONDAY AT 7:00 AM – FIRST BOAT OUT
March 15, 2017
– The ANGLER is fishing every day except Easter Sunday. 3/4-day trips sailing at 7:00 AM.
We have clam and crab baits on board, and our galley is open. The fare is $65 and the weather looks good all week.
7:00 AM – FIRST BOAT OUT – GALLEY OPEN
NOT SAILING EASTER SUNDAY 4/16
March 8, 2017
– The ANGLER will start its 2017 season next SATURDAY APRIL 15. Our trips are 3/4-day bottom fishing for TOG, COD and LING from 7:00 AM to 2:00 PM. The fares are the same as last year.
We are not sailing Easter Sunday 4/16.
Spring bottom fishing is very dependent on weather with westerly winds being the best, and easterly and southerly winds will often shut the fishing down for a few days.
You can call us at (732) 872-0744 for any up-to-the-minute changes.
NEXT TRIP – 7:00 AM SATURDAY 4/15
NOT SAILING EASTER SUNDAY 4/16
January 22, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER 1/21 Final Winter Trip.
We had nice weather and started the day where we caught Tog on Monday. There were plenty of eels, but the Tog would not bite. We fished some deeper wrecks and the Conger eel bite was hot with just a few Ling mixed in. We then moved inshore where we found a few Tog, but only caught shorts. Whale watching was good; there was a large Finback only 15-feet from the boat. Jim Lewik
i from Cheesequake, NJ managed three Ling and won the pool.
We were going to sail next weekend, but we do not see fishing improving given the big storm expected on Monday and Tuesday and are packing it in for the rest of the winter.
THANKS TO ALL – SEE YOU IN THE SPRING

January 16, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER MLK day Tog. We had much better fishing today after a couple of tough days. The weather was perfect and we did much better. White-legger crabs seemed best, but green crabs and clams worked too.
David Taubenslag from South Brunswick, NJ had three keepers and won his second pool in a row with a nice 9.5-pound
white chin Tog. We also got a few ling in 90 feet of water.
We are not sailing the next few days and we will post an update when we are sailing
January 14, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER Saturday Report.
It was nice getting out again to a flat ocean. We headed offshore to deeper water with great hopes. Well, it was only a pick on the Tog with plenty of eels and only a single Ling. We didn't catch any Cod or Mackerels. Timmy won the pool and the best fishing was on green crabs. We have white-legger and green crab baits. We have a few new areas to try during the next two days.
NEXT TRIP – 7:30 AM SUNDAY 1/15
WE ARE SAILING MLK MONDAY 1/16
January 13, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER update.
The weather is finally turning fishable after lots of southerly winds. We will be back sailing this weekend and the rest of January.
We expect to be fishing offshore where we may have some Ling and Cod mixed in with bigger Tog.
Today's northwest wind should take care of the big swell from this week's southerly blow.
SAILING 7:30 AM – NO GALLEY
January 6, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER update.
We are not sailing this weekend. The weather forecast calls for a gale watch, cold temperatures and snow. We will wait for better weather.
January 3, 2017 – Party Boat ANGLER updates and photos.
Happy New Year to all! We just posted the trip pictures from New Year's Eve trip (see our Photo Gallery).

December 31, 2016 – As we wrap up 2016, we just wanted to take this time to give you our sincere thanks for fishing aboard the ANGLER. We look forward to a new year of fishing and to seeing you in 2017. Thank you once again for fishing with us.
BEST WISHES FOR A HEALTHY AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Party Boat ANGLER Saturday report. We had a good day of fishing today with a nice mix of fish. The ocean was good this morning, but it got nasty in the afternoon when the south wind got cranking. Artie had four keeper Blackfish up to 7-pounds plus the pool fish. We do not like the weather forecast for the next few days and will not sail again until the end of next week.
Captain George and the Crew of the ANGLER
December 28, 2016 – Party Boat ANGLER Wednesday Tog report.
On the way out today, we saw a ton of bunker in our bay and when we got to the one buoy, we had a whale jump completely out of the water. It was only 100 feet off our bow and jumped twice. With a northwest wind and the beginning of the ebb tide, conditions were good to stop short. The Tog were hungry and eating both green and white crabs. Some folks had two or three keepers with others catching
15 shorts. It was our best fishing of the day. We only picked at them when we went south and joined the fleet. Hungsoo Moon from Jersey City, NJ had the pool with a 6-pound Tog.
Thursday will not be nice with rain and southerly winds to 30 knots. Friday is also no good with wind gusts to 40.
The next ANGLER Tog trip is SATURDAY 12/31
December 21, 2016 – Party Boat ANGLER Wednesday Tog report and update. We fished inshore and offshore today finding a big spread of fish.
There was a nice Cod caught in shallow water with a load of shorts and some nice keeper Blackfish.
Offshore, we had bigger Blackfish plus our first Ling. We saw whales and plenty of herring.
Mike the Plumber was high hook with seven keepers and Joe won the pool.
NEXT TRIP IS FRIDAY 12/23
NOT SAILING THURSDAY 12/22, SATURDAY 12/24 OR SUNDAY 12/25
NEW START TIME IS 7:30 AM – NY TOG IS CLOSED. WE DO NOT NEED TO SAIL EARLY
THE ANGLER IS SAILING EVERY DAY CHRISTMAS WEEK (WEATHER PERMITTING)
December 14, 2016 – Party Boat ANGLER Wednesday report. The day started with mostly shorts, but ended with good action and some big fish. Paulie
from Kinnelon, NJ took the pool with an 8-pound Tog. There was more wind than forecast and a strong full moon tide made for heavy weights.
We saw Bass and Blues under a swarm of Gannets on the way out and that shows the water is still warm, but this is about to change.
We will not be sailing for a while with the windy weather forecast.
December 11, 2016 – Party Boat ANGLER Sunday report. It was cold Sunday, but we had some good Tog fishing. There were limit catches with a ton of shorts mixed in.
from Palisades Park, NJ had four big Blackfish up to a 7-pound 11-ounce pool fish on white and green crab combo baits. Anchoring got tough after noon, but we still caught fish.
We cannot believe there are no Ling yet, but we do hear of a few Cod and Mackerel starting to show.
Wednesday 12/14 looks like the only weekday with decent weather. We will sail at 7:00 AM and the galley will be open.
December 7, 2016 – Party Boat ANGLER Wednesday report. Everything looked good as we made it to the point this morning. The rain stopped and the wind was down to about 10 knots out of the NNE. We still had some ebb tide left,
but we figured we would have the flood tide soon and we could start where we ended the day Sunday with good fishing. However, we had to change plans as we passed the 11 Buoy. A big swell from hell made it nasty. We never had the wind last night, but it must have been nasty offshore. The swell ruined anchoring and shut down the bite. There were a few keepers on each stop, but no good overall. Concrete Tom
won the pool and Archie was second. We don't like tomorrow's forecast of NW winds with a flood tide, but it cannot be any worse than today.
With wind and low temperatures forecast for Friday & Saturday, we will wait until Sunday to sail again.
December 4, 2016 – Party Boat ANGLER Sunday report and update.
This is normally a slow week with the opening of buck season, and the weather is not great. It felt like winter for most of the morning with a stiff northwest breeze and cold, but by the end of the day, it was flat and nice. The first two drops had action around the boat, but just a pick on keepers. When the tide changed, we moved north and had good fishing. Dave Woodson from Dover, NJ won the pool with a Tog over 7-pounds
that just beat a couple of other nice fish. Green crabs worked best, but there was some action on the whites.
The weather conditions look good for Wednesday with light east winds and a flood tide. This is the ONLY day we will sail before next weekend.
7:00 AM WEDNESDAY 12/07
December 2, 2016 – Party Boat ANGLER Update. We are NOT sailing Saturday
because of gale warnings in the weather forecast, but Sunday's weather looks good.
Just as a reminder, the ANGLER is an open party fishing boat and you don't need to make reservations. This applies to all of our regularly scheduled fishing trips. Like other party boats, we work on a first come, first serve basis, so all
you need to do is arrive at the boat anywhere from one to one-half hour before sailing time.
Our sister vessel, the VOYAGER is an 100-foot all aluminum supercruiser powered by three turbocharged diesel engines making her fast, spacious and very comfortable for deep sea fishing. Amenities include a heated and air conditioned main cabin with booth seating, a full galley, heated handrails for cold weather fishing, and an upper sundeck with plenty of seating.
sails from the dock at Fishermen's Supply Co. located at 69 Channel Drive in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ
