The Hooked Up II is a 55′ Carolina custom charter boat based out of Cape May, New Jersey (NJ) and departs from South Jersey Marina. She is one of the newest, fastest and most comfortable deluxe charter boats on the entire East Coast. Carolina custom hulls are known for their world class rides without excessive pounding as well as being extremely dry boats in all kinds of sea conditions. The Hooked Up II has a huge cockpit to accommodate up to 6 anglers and crew comfortably!


Spring Trophy Stripers, Black Drum on the Delaware Bay then offshore tuna starting early June. We will be targeting stripers as they exit the Delaware Bay after spawning for a few weeks starting approximately in late April and early May for a few weeks then switch over to Black Drum. Then the real bonanza starts as the very best canyon tuna fishing of the season starts up in June through early to mid-July. Do not miss out on this as our best catches by far the last few years have been in June and early July.  Check out the pictures on our web page of tuna caught during this period the last 3 years. Absolutely the best tuna fishing in our southern canyons in June.

Fishing Trips on the Hooked Up II

When fishing offshore in the local canyons off of Cape May, NJ, we target all Tuna species (Yellowfin, Bluefin, Giant Bluefin, Big Eye), Wahoo and Mahi Mahi (Dolphin).

We will also fish for Marlin/Billfish when they are present or upon request if you desire to target those species.

Fishing aboard the 55′ Hooked Up II provides maximum comfort for our customers thanks to her deluxe accommodations and world class ride.

If you are looking for a family fun trip in the summer, we offer inshore shark trips.  These trips are a short run from our dock and can be anywhere between 4 and 6 hours!  It’s fun for the whole family as we generally catch big sharks up to 300 lbs. with almost a 100% guarantee that you will catch at least one on every trip! All Sharks are released after taking pictures and offer the best opportunity to catch some of the biggest nastiest fish you will ever encounter just a few miles from shore.  We fish at the mouth of the Delaware Bay or in the open ocean on all these trips easily in sight of land.

We usually start Black Drum trips in late April around the new or full moons. We fish either on the Delaware or the New Jersey side of the bay depending on the where the best bite is.

The last couple of years the Black Drum showed up first in the shallow flats on the Delaware side because the water is usually a few degrees warmer in the spring than the New Jersey side.

We will discuss with all charters prior to departure which side of the bay has the best fishing and they can decide what works best for them.
