*There is no way of knowing until just prior to your trip how far we will have to run to get the best tuna fishing. For the most part the last two years the best fishing out of Cape May, NJ was an 85-95 mile run with not much in our closer local canyons except for a few good days. One of the main reasons we have caught so many tuna ( Yellowfins, Big Eyes) in recent years is the Hooked Up II has the size and speed to make the 90 mile runs if necessary to put a great catch together. We realize these trips are expensive but at times you just have to go to where the tuna are residing and there is no shortcuts if you want to have banner catches. We discuss this with all our customers prior to their trip and try our best to give them an honest opinion on all the variables affecting their upcoming offshore trip. Captain John has made over 1000 trips for tuna over the last 25 years plus and along with his crew of mates are some of the absolute best at catching all species of tuna. If they are out there we will catch them for our customers.* *These are cash prices and there will be a 3% charge for all credit card payments.*


2016 Fall Trophy Striper Rates on the Hooked Up II


Departure Length Price
5:00 am

12:00 (noon)

5-6 Hours

Up to 5 miles from Cape May Inlet Maximum

5:00-6:00 am 8-10 Hours

 5:00-6:00 am All day up to 10 Hours

Price when we run 20-30 miles to get to the best striper bite.  Most often in early to mid-November when the fish are still north of Cape May up towards Atlantic City.

30 Miles or more



Open Boat Charters*Up to 6 anglers Maximum 8-10 Hours $200/person

 *The departure time will be discussed with all our charters prior to the trip based on the best weather conditions, tides and how farr we have to run for the best striper fishing.  We usually like to depart very early to be one of the very first boats on the striper grounds.

 **The prices listed are cash prices or personal checks.  We do accept credit cards but this needs to be discussed prior to the trip with Captain John. Cash and checks are the preferred method of payment on all fall striper trips.**

We strongly suggest booking at least an 8 or 10 hour trip when targeting trophy fall stripers in the 20-50 lb plus range… We feel 6 hour trips do not offer enough fishing time and strongly suggest the longer trips to increase the chances of providing an outstanding trophy striper trip!  The shorter (5-6 hours) work best in early to mid-December when the stripers are closer to Cape May and we do not have to run as far based on the 2015 season.
