Tommyboy Fishing Charters

Setting off from Barnegat, Tommyboy Fishing Charters is ideally located to fish the inshore bays, inlets, and backwaters of the New Jersey bays protected by its many jetties and islands from the Atlantic. They’re also in a prime position to start an ocean fishing excursion, and Captain Thomas Welsh can take you up to 25 miles offshore. With over 25 years of experience in the region, he’s just the man to guide these exciting tours.

Trips take place aboard a 26’ Pursuit center console, designed to easily navigate the shallow backwaters, and drift across the bumpy open ocean. Powered by twin 200 HP Suzuki engines, it reaches speeds of up to 35 knots, getting you to the hottest spots as quickly as possible. She’s been equipped with your comfort and safety in mind, with a toilet, an ice box for your snacks and drinks, and all safety equipment needed.

In this part of the world, there’s one fish that stands out above the rest, the Striped Bass. On all tours you’ll head out hoping to catch a boatful of these exciting, not to mention tasty creatures. You’ll be handed rods, reels, tackle, and lures to cast with, with live bait also waiting for you aboard. On trips further offshore, you’ll get the chance to hunt for some bigger game fish, but whichever trip you choose, you’re in for an unforgettable day.

Children over 7 years old are welcome on board and will be provided with appropriate life jackets. Capt. Tom is an easy-going, fun-loving captain, who is passionate about fishing, and wants to see everyone enjoy themselves. Therefore, alcohol is permitted aboard, but hard liquor is not. The thrill of fishing will grip you, as you gaze at the open ocean and the magnificent skyline behind. Tommyboy Fishing Charters will blow your mind!
