Get Ready for a Fight! "
Everyone who fishes in New Jersey knows about the excitement of Bluefishing. Captain Gene will get you in on the action, which at times is virtually "non-stop". Many Captains might regard bluefish as the scourge of the striper fishery. But not Captain Gene and the Phantom. Bluefish are fast, ferocious and fight to the bitter end. What more could you ask for if you want a hard fighting day on the water. No for the faint hearted at times, these fish will work out your arms as if they were 10 times their actual size. Call Captain Gene, get your friends together, and "Let's go Fishing"!
Trolling, Chumming and Jigging for Bluefish
The Art of Weakfishing
Strategy and Knowledge catch the Weakies "
Fishing for weakfish sometimes is easier said than done, especially if the overall run is not in full swing. That does'nt matter to Gene. He knows how these fish behave, and knows what they feed on and how they move. Typically wherever the blues are chopping up the bait, the weakfish school up on the bottom to take advantage of the carnage on the surface. Quiet tactics are used as Gene "sneaks up" on the school, and tosses the jig or the bait that only the weakfish will take. Share an inventive and resourceful day weakfishing on the Phantom, and learn a new trick or two from Captain Gene.
Worms, Bucktails and Artificials work the best
Relax and Enjoy the Drift
Fishing the "Deliberate Drift" "
Let's face it... anyone can take a boat ride, find a fleet of boats and drift for fluke. But with Captain Gene and the crew of the Phantom, there is nothing routine about it. Gene has been fluke fishing his entire life in the Sandy Hook area. He knows the nature of this fishery, and where the fish are most likely to be. Never counting on the location of the masses, Gene uses his knowledge and experience to find that "honey-pot" of nice fluke. Bring the family, enjoy the day...of course, but bring home some delicious keeper fluke courtesy of the Phantom!
Large Fluke don't only take big baits, remember "Elephants eat Peanuts"
