Why our 30 hour trip is our ONLY trip!

Experience MAKES a difference!

Know what you're getting into before you book a fishing trip with Miss Barnegat Light. Our 30 hour trips offer the best oppourtunity to catch a few different species. Since we leave on Saturday morning we have the option of fishing for tuna right away or fishing for mahi mahi or tilefish when we arrive at teh canyon. As the sunsets we get set up for the night in an area that gives us the possibility of hooking tuna and swordfish many times. The next morning we have a little time to either continue to target tuna or again drop down for tilefish or pop hop looking for mahi mahi. It truly is the best option for you the fishermen.
