See our RESERVATIONS PAGE to book a 2017 TILEFISH TRIP

These very special trips target Tilefish on offshore spots in depths ranging from 400 to more than 1,000 feet.
On these trips, we travel during the night and drift for Tilefish during the day.

1-day trips    – We leave our dock at 10:00 PM and return between 8:00 PM and 9:00 PM the next day.
1-day trips – We leave our dock at 10:00 PM and return between 4:00 AM and 5:00 AM the second day.
2-day trips    – We leave our dock at 10:00 PM and return between 6:00 PM and 7:00 PM the second day.
2-day trips – We leave our dock at   8:00 PM and return between 4:00 AM and 5:00 AM the third day.

A sleeping bunk is included with your fare and we suggest you bring a sleeping bag or blanket and pillow.
Reservations ARE required.   Sorry, rental rods are NOT AVAILABLE for Tilefish Trips.

For 10:00 PM trips, you can confirm the VOYAGER is sailing on a TILEFISH TRIP by calling 732-295-3019 (select menu option 4) any time after 6:00 PM on the day of your trip.   For 8:00 PM trips, call after 12:00 noon.

Recommended Fishing Tackle:

Rods and Reels – 6 to 8-foot heavy duty rod with a single or two-speed conventional reel filled with approximately 500 yards of 50 to 65-lb. test braided Spectra line.   We strongly suggest using braided line since we will be fishing in very deep water (up to 1,000 feet.)   Sorry, rental rods are NOT AVAILABLE for Tilefish.

Tackle – 16 to 48-oz bank sinkers, 5/0 to 8/0 bait holder hooks, 5/0 to 8/0 Octopus or Octopus circle hooks, 60 or 80 lb. leader material, heavy-duty swivels, 16 to 24-oz jigs.   We use 2-hook bottom rigs or 1-hook bottom rigs when there are really big fish around.   The Captain will let you know which one to use.   You can tie your own rigs or buy them on the boat for a nominal fee.
the Reel Seat
Specialty Tilefish rods, reels, tackle and custom Tilefish rigs are also available at local tackle shops such as Dave Arbeitman's REEL SEAT in Brielle, NJ.   Dave and his team are on many VOYAGER Tilefish Trips and have first-hand knowledge of what you need to get the job done.

Bait – Tilefish eat a great variety of things.   We provide Squid baits, but you are welcome to bring along other goodies too.
