Our Philosophy

Bloodline Sportfishing fills a valuable niche largely neglected by today’s popular charter operations. As a matter of fact, much of what we do stands apart from our competitors in terms practice, principle, and price. First off, we sail by the tide not by the clock. Why is that important? Fish are pattern oriented creatures, schooling and feeding during specific periods that don’t always intersect with arbitrary, manmade schedules. If you’re not on the water while the fish are active, you’ll either catch poorly or worse yet, not at all. Keeping this reality close at heart, all departure times are set to correspond with prime periods of moving water, day or night, where the likelihood of enjoying productive fishing is at its peak. This is especially important for groups looking to target trophy striped bass.

Speaking of striped bass, one thing you’ll never see aboard the Bloodline is wire line rods. This isn’t a slight against those who have mastered the art of wire line trolling because it does put fish in the boat, it just simply isn’t our style. We exclusively target stripers with live bait and, when appropriate, light tackle jigging and plugging. Bloodline Sportfishing believes that fishing is meant to be an exciting, mentally and physically engaging experience. Customers hold their own rods, tend their own lines and hook their own fish. The tackle we use is also substantially lighter in hand than trolling setups which allows anglers to feel the full power of a fish and maximize enjoyment of the fight without prematurely fatiguing. 

Continuing on, Bloodline Sportfishing is 100% captain owned, operated and crewed. What this means is you get a truly individualized and intimate experience with every trip. Captain Joe is right there in the cockpit coaching, assisting and often times fishing right alongside his customers in addition to running the boat. His level of attentiveness and emphasis on angler education is second to none. He isn’t there to simply put you on fish and send you home. No, he goes out of his way to up your fishing IQ, and boost your confidence and skill levels with each successive trip. That being said, don’t be bashful about asking questions should any come to mind. Capt. Joe always relishes the opportunity to answer them. 

Finally, Bloodline Sportfishing specifically caters to small charter groups ranging from 1-4 people and tailor rates accordingly. We realize that arranging larger groups for 6-pack charters is often a difficult proposition for most anglers. In today’s busy world, finding free time for fishing trips is challenging enough without having to align one’s personal schedule with five other friends and/or family members. Popular charter boats don’t offer sympathy discounts for groups falling short of their six-person capacity so why pay to cover absentees if you don’t have to? Furthermore, Captain Joe’s hands on approach to chartering offers more than just an intimate fishing experience. Not having to absorb the expense of a hired mate allows Bloodline Sportfishing to reduce overhead costs and pass the savings onto customers. With such affordable rates it is not uncommon for Bloodline regulars to sail several trips every season.
