Currently operating two world class charter boats outfitted for offshore tuna fishing and beyond out of southern New Jersey. Berthed in Avalon and Wildwood, we are in the heart of New Jersey fishing from the spring Black Drum trips to Tuna, Marlin and Swordfish in the deepest canyons along the eastern seaboard.Get in touch
The Bodacious is a custom 55-foot Carolina sport fisher that offers an upscale interior and an extraordinary smooth ride (thanks to its world-renowned Carolina hull). The deep vee Carolina hull with the distinctive Carolina flare (or Harkers Island Flare as it is often referred to) throws water away from hull, especially in rough conditions like those seen off the Outer Banks.
Trips are typically lead by owner/operator Capt. Tim Smith and mated by Capt. Ray Pastella – a team that has been working together for over 7 years logging thousands of hours in our local and offshore waters.
You will not find a more experienced crew or more comfortable charter boat in South Jersey. We promise you will not be disappointed fishing on the Bodacious with all the comforts a hand crafted boat provides.
