Here are the 2015 fall striper rates: I would strongly suggest not doing a 6 hour trip unless the stripers are close to Cape May and at this time there is no way of knowing if that is going to be the case but last year we ended up running at least 15-25 miles to get the best bite especially in November.
On Friday’s and weekends I am only doing the 10 hour trips as boat traffic does impact the striper fishing and we often depart early or fish late after most boats have gone home and that is when the bite turns on with less boat traffic especially if we have to troll to catch them. These rates are good for up to 20 miles of Cape May.
Last fall in early November the best fishing was up off Atlantic City approximately 40-45 miles from Cape May in early November and it did not get really good until mid-November when the stripers moved south towards Cape May. Only Mother Nature knows what it will be like this year as it depends on how fast the water cools down.
There were a few very large trophy striper caught in early November last fall in the Delaware Bay bunker chunking but this bite died quickly and after that it was all trolling in the open ocean. Our early season reduced price open boat trips are for targeting trophy stripers 25-50 lbs. when they first enter the bay and hopefully there will be some showing up in early November. These trips are exploratory trips looking for bigger stripers!

Departure times will be determined once we know how far we have to run and where the best fishing is along with the tides etc. We can also schedule trips that best fit the charters schedule. We will discuss all of this prior to your trip.
