Welcome to Pez Machine - Barnegat Light Fishing Charters
Located in Barnegat Light, New Jersey, on the north end of Long Beach Island, Pez Machine Sportfishing offers you access to one of the finest charter boats in New Jersey. Whether it's helping your children catch their first Striped Bass, watching 4th of July fireworks from the water, or spending 30 hours offshore in pursuit of Tuna, Marlin, and other pelagic species, we will help you achieve your goal. Whether you are new to fishing or an offshore veteran, the crew at Pez Machine Sportfishing looks forward to putting you on the fish!
In April and May we begin our New Jersey charter fishing season in pursuit of Striped Bass. The coastal waters off Long Beach Island and Island Beach, New Jersey provide anglers with some of the best Striped Bass fishing on the East Coast. Charters will spend the day trolling, jigging, or live-bait fishing within three miles of the beach chasing trophy-sized Stripers.
June typically marks the beginning of the offshore canyon season and it continues well into November. Departing from Barnegat Inlet, the Pez Machine will run 75 to 95+ nautical miles to the canyons along the edge of the continental shelf in search of Tuna, Marlin, Swordfish, Wahoo and Mahi-Mahi. The Pez Machine has the range to fish the following canyons: Block, Dip, Hudson, Berkeley, Toms, Carteret, Lindenkohl, Spencer, Wilmington, Baltimore, Poormans and South Poormans.
November and December mark the return of the Striped Bass as they migrate south along the East Coast. Once again, we will offer trips targeting this popular game fish until we head south for the winter.
Pez Machine Recent Fishing Reports
4 Makos, 35+ Blue Sharks, 71 Tilefish, 38 Yellowfins, 15 Bluefins to 180 pounds, and 4 Bigeyes to 200 pounds!!
Our Monday-Tuesday overnighter saw great fishing overall!! We boated 10 yellowfins between 45-55 pounds and released 7 bluefins. The tilefishing was off the charts! We landed blueline tilefish to 17 pounds and golden tiles to 40 pounds!
We had our last striper trip of the spring and hate to report that it was horribly slow. No fish for us today. I’d say that’s a wrap.
The spring season was hit or miss outside of two weeks in May when the trolling was on fire.
