Capt. Kevin has been fishing the Navesink and Shrewsbury Rivers, the Raritan Bay and the waters along the Jersey and south shore of NY since he was 12 years old (over 45 years). Fly fishing and light tackle are Kevin’s specialty, but he won’t pass up dunking bunker for the big bass when the opportunity presents itself. In addition to his northeast experience, Kevin has also fished the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, the coastal Carolinas, the Florida Keys, the Caribbean, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Baha Peninsula. Kevin has also enjoyed the fresh water scene, fly fishing freshwater locations from Connecticut to California including the West Branch of the Farmington, the Battenkill, Pulaski, Beaver Kill, The Willowemoc, East and West Branches of the Delaware, the White River in the Ozarks, the Truckee, the Little Truckee, and the Yuba.
Capt. Kevin enjoys fishing with the most seasoned anglers as well as teaching anyone that’s interested in learning the finer points of this great pastime. New comers to NJ and families are welcomed with as much enthusiasm and passion as are his repeat clients.
Our season starts in mid April as the bunker begin to move into our rivers and back bays and the bass are hot on their tails. This will mean the bluefish are right behind them. Then in May, the fluke, sea bass and weakfish (hopefully they show up) are in our local waters. In June the bluefin and Mahi Mahi start to make a showing on the inshore grounds and can really heat up from July-September. September kicks off the albie run, and the bass and blues begin to migrate back through our area waters and will stay through December or until the water temp dips under 45 degrees.
