If you want to explore the Garden State in a completely different way, Megan Beth Sportfishing will take you on an adventure of a lifetime. Captain Dan McGivney will show you the hottest inshore and offshore game that Point Pleasant Beach can offer.

Climb aboard his 38’ Henriques Sport Fisherman powered by twin 375 HP Caterpillar engines capable of developing a cruising speed of 21 knots. The vessel was fully restored in 2018 and can accommodate up to 6 anglers of all experience levels.

When it comes to the equipment, this boat has it all - GPS, radar, sonar, fishfinder, liferaft, EPIRB, live bait tank, and ice-boxes. It also has a comfy salon, air-conditioning, AM/FM stereo, full bathroom and a kitchen with a microwave.

Inshore or offshore, the captain will show you the most productive saltwater spots teeming with various species. You’ll have the opportunity to catch the delicious Tautog and Seabass, or if you prefer big game - go after Tuna or Sharks. If you’re looking for a real adventure, Megan Beth Sportfishing can take you deep sea fishing up to 50 miles from the coast.

Live bait is included in the price, and you’ll be catching it during the trip. Quantum rods and reels, lures, and catch cleaning and filleting are also provided free of charge. There is no age limit - this charter offers an unforgettable experience for kids, beginners, and pro anglers. All aboard!

Member since Abril 2018
I grew up in the New Jersey shore area and I have loved fishing since I was a kid. I have been fishing for more than 30 years in the waters of the Manasquan Inlet, and anywhere from New York to Cape May. Fishing tournaments are my passion, and I have participated in numerous local competitions. When it comes to the winnings, one of the most unforgettable ones was catching a 456 lb Mako Shark in Jersey Coast Shark Anglers (JCSA) Mako Tournament in 1995. I am also the president of Greater Point Pleasant Charter Boat Association, RFA, NJOA, and NACO, and a former president of Jersey Coast Shark Anglers. My goal is to make sure that both my guests and my crew have an amazing time while fishing together.
