Aboard a spacious boat, the crew and passengers embark on six- to seven-hour fishing trips at 8 a.m. The trips include all equipment, which the captain will prepare and provide instruction for when needed. During the journey, passengers fuel up with a bountiful lunch from a rotating menu, with tasty lemonade, water, and iced tea to wash it down. Trips return at 2 or 3 p.m., at which time the crew cleans and preps the fish to be transported home.
John Jack Seagoing Adventures
The John Jack is a US Coast Guard–certified, 50-foot titan of the sea, operated by a friendly crew and knowledgeable captain. Two Caterpillar engines––each producing 800 horsepower––propel the red and white ship through the waves, staving off currents as passengers embark on chartered fishing and diving trips around the Point Pleasant Beach area. It can reach speeds of up to 25 knots and travel up to 350 miles between fuel stops, so it’s not uncommon to see the vessel docked in ports at Montauk, Cape May, Virginia, or Cape Hatteras. The interior is air conditioned, and houses a refrigerator, microwave, icemaker, and power outlets. Outside, quartz halogen lights illuminate the deck, creating a night atmosphere that still provides enough light for fishing, diving, or reading Magic 8-Ball responses.
