About our Fishing Trips
Targeted Species Description of Trip
Fluke Fishing
Big pool winner
Nice big pool winning Fluke
" Fluke - Fluke - Fluke "

Our Half Day Fluke fishing trips put you right on fish just a short ride from the Point Pleasant Inlet, giving you the maximum time fishing. When the beaches along Point Pleasant Beach are loaded with fluke, the Norma-K gives you a great opportunity to get your limit.

Our crew will offer to clean your fish on the way back home.

Great day of Fluke Fishing on the Norma K III
Winter Flounder

" Manasquan River Flounder "

Every November and March the Winter Flounder stack up in the sheltered waters of the Manasquan River. The Norma-K takes you to where they are at. The river holds fish for most of the season and Captain Ken & Captain John know exactly when to target this tasty & fun fighting species. We will supply clams for bait. Bloodworms and Sandworms will not be provided. If you think you may want to use them for bait please get them before you come over at Alex's Bait & Tackle right on Inlet Drive.

We break fresh whole clams into pieces when we chum for flounder
Winter Mackerel
Like Fishing in a Barrel
Jigging for Mackerel
" Like Fishing in a Barrel! "

The mackerel move North in the Spring and South in the Winter. This gives us two seasons when we are able to catch mackerel. The length of the season depends upon their migration pattern. Some years they are in a hurry to move, other years they will tend to stay in our local area for about a month.

Our crew will offer to clean your fish on the way back home.
Bottom Fishing
9 pound Ling
" Mud Hole Bottom Fishing "

Fishing for ling, sea bass, pollock and cod - This is by far the best fishing to be had in our local area during the winter months. The ling bite best in the afternoon and evening, so we schedule our trips around the fishes natural activity. Early in the season the sea bass fishing is excellent. As the water gets colder the sea bass leave our area and the ling become quite abundant. A few nice cod and pollock add to the winter mix and round out our winter picture. These special trips are weather sensitive so please call the night before for further information. Despite the excellent fishing, the time of year leaves these trips UNCROWDED. If you are serious about catching fish and have not been able to make a 3PM-9PM trip, give the "Magic Hours" trip a try. You will not be disappointed.

Fresh Clams & Green Crabs available for bait.
Chumming for Blues
Pair of 17 pound blues
Pair of 17 pounders
" Night Blues "

If you would like to sail with the best boat and the best crew, we would love to have you aboard. Our experienced crew has many years behind them and they get the job done when the slammers are raging. Just because the summer is over doesn't mean the bluefishing is over, we sail every night all fall.

Night Bluefish trips begin MID MAY!
We also sail weekends through November!
7:30pm - 12:30am

Fresh Chum and Fresh Bunker make the difference
