Open Boat, $90 Fare

Full Galley services available


July 2, 2020

Our 1.5-DAY NANTUCKET TROPHY FLUKE TRIP on June 28 was excellent
with great weather and a full boat limit of jumbo Fluke.   After a picky start in the morning, the Fluke turned on and were hungry the rest of the day.   Pool winners were Norm Steele and Tommy Hook with Fluke weighing 11.4 pounds and 11.3 pounds respectively.   There were lots of Fluke weighing between 7-9 pounds.

The VOYAGER's 1.5-day TILEFISH TRIP on June 25 was very good.   Many anglers had limit catches of Blueline Tilefish and Golden Tilefish.   The largest Golden weighed a whopping 41 pounds!

You can see photos from these trips on our Photo Gallery page.


June 30, 2020

The VOYAGER's 2.5-day Southern Rough Bottom Trip on June 21 was very good with many limit catches of Blueline and Golden Tilefish.
  A nice mix of Rosefish, White Hake and Barrelfish also came over the rails.   The highlight of the trip was on Monday, June 22 when Emil Jaskot caught a huge Broad Alfonsino (Beryx decadactylus).   Emil was reeling up a couple of Rosefish when the big Alfonsino decided to snack on one of them.

Emil's Broad Alfonsino was weighed in at The Reel Seat in Brielle, NJ at 19.7 pounds (19 pounds 11 ounces) and measured 32 1/4 inches in length and had a girth of 26 1/8 inches.   A NJ marine biologist inspected the fish and confirmed its identity and measurements.   Emil's fish crushes the current IGFA All-Tackle World Record fish (8 pounds 5 ounces) by 11 pounds 6 ounces and IGFA certification is pending.   You can see Emil's Broad Alfonsino and other trip photos on our Photo Gallery page.

We still have some available spots on our next 2.5-DAY NANTUCKET FLUKE & HADDOCK/COC/POLLOCK JIGGING TRIP.   The trip departs 5 PM SUNDAY JULY 5 and the fare is $650.   If you are interested in going, please contact Vinny at Info@VoyagerFishing.com

Our heartfelt thanks go to Mr. Kwangwoon Oh, a regular on VOYAGER Tilefish trips, for composing this beautiful heroic prose…

The Three Voyagers

Jeff, Dominic and Dave
Why did you leave the beloved fishing boat
So early, so suddenly and sadly
Tears fell down from my eyes
And didn't stop for a long while

You will never forget
The winds
The rough waves
The pouring rain
The knife-edged bow

We all remember the moments
The wide field of stars
Pulling the Moon
Breaking nights in the lonely boat
Coaxing mountains of angry waves
You were moms how to take of crying babies
You were guides of the Atlantic Ocean

You are proud families of the Voyager
Dominic, a brave harpooner
Dave, you know how to throw the fishing lines
Captain Jeff, you are Ahab of the Moby Dick
You know how to dominate the waters

We'll miss you guys forever
The stars will be looking for you
You will protect our fishing trip
You are not here anymore, but
Voyages continue
You will be with us
Forever, forever

Your friend
Kwangwoon Oh


June 21, 2020

We just got back from a 2.5-day NANTUCKET TRIP and it was very good.
   On Friday, we fished the Fluke grounds on Nantucket Shoal and had a full boat limit of jumbo Fluke up to 31 inches by midday Friday.

And the offshore jigging grounds produced all the Haddock and Mackerel you wanted plus some Whiting and Cod.

You can see photos from this trip on the VOYAGER Photo Gallery pages.

We have a couple of available spots on our 1.5-DAY NANTUCKET FLUKE TRIP departing 5 PM SUNDAY, JUNE 28.    If you are interested in going, please contact Vinny at Info@VoyagerFishing.com

Our first Tilefish & Rosefish Trip of the year on May 25 was good.
   It was breezy offshore on Monday, but in spite of the fast drift there were limit catches of both Golden Tilefish and Blueline Tilefish.   Some White Hake and Rosefish also came over the rails.   Sabrina caught the two biggest Golden Tilefish at 22 and 33 pounds.   And Emil caught the biggest Blueline Tilefish.

All Sea Bass Trips so far, including today, produced full boat limits.   We still have some OPEN SPOTS on our THURSDAY MAY 28 SEA BASS TRIP.   You can book this trip on-line from the VOYAGER Trip Calendar page.

The VOYAGER has sailed on two SEA BASS TRIPS so far and the fishing on both trips was excellent, if not downright stupid.   Everyone had limit catches in short order.

Unfortunately, the SUNDAY, MAY 24 SEA BASS TRIP departing at 6:30 AM has been CANCELED due to the poor weather forecast.

NJ Governor Murphy opened up party boat fishing this afternoon.   Despite this, we are still going to start fishing FRIDAY MAY 22 for SEA BASS.
  Tickets must be purchased online through our web site.   Tickets, if available, can be purchased right up to sailing time.

Social distancing and wearing masks and gloves will be required, so be prepared.

When we do start fishing our customer capacity will be restricted to just 32 passengers, therefore reservations by purchasing tickets in advance will be very important.   We want to make sure that you have a spot when you come down to the boat.   We don't want people traveling from far away only to find that the boat is full.   To insure that you have a spot you can now book online or you can call the office at 732-295-3019 and leave a message and we will call you back to book over the phone with a credit card.


May 14, 2020

We hope this email finds everyone well and staying safe as best they can.   We thought we were going to be able to fish this weekend but now, as per NJ Governor Murphy, it looks like FRIDAY MAY 22 will be our first SEA BASS TRIP.   Please note - May 22 is our best GUESS.

If you have already booked a trip online prior to May 22 please call 732-295-3019 or email Vinny at Info@VoyagerFishing.com to reschedule your trip or request a refund.   We are sorry for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience.

Unfortunately, due to some poor weather on the weekends, we do not have any VOYAGER fishing reports at the moment except to say that the fishing off Block Island has been good this past week for the Montauk and Rhode Island boats.   Our next BLOCK ISLAND TRIP is FRIDAY JANUARY 31.

LOST & FOUND

We have accumulated quite a bit of "stuff" in our shed that has been left on the boat over the past year.   Our storage shed is pretty small and we need the room for boat stuff.   If you left items on the boat that you confirmed are in the shed please contact us to make arrangements to pick them up by the end of the month.   At the beginning of February we will be cleaning out the shed and disposing of all unclaimed items.

2020 TRIP PAYMENTS

For those of you that have held spots for the 2020 offshore trips please note that a payment of $200 per spot (full payment for trips under $200) was due on January 17.   We are extending the cutoff date until the end of business on Monday February 3.   If your deposit is not in by then, we will be forced to remove you from the trip(s) and you will have to re-book later.   If you were applying past credits and did NOT receive confirmation please contact Vinny at Info@VoyagerFishing.com so your monies can be properly applied.
