What You Can Expect:

Specializing in trophy Stripers and Black Drum inshore and all Tuna species, Wahoo and Mahi Mahi (Dolphin) Offshore.

We have had one of the best Tuna seasons aboard the Hooked Up II in a long time, in 2013!  Last year the Hooked Up II was regularly catching their limit of yellowfin tuna on most charters, and we even had a run of 8 straight trips in a row where we caught Big Eye Tuna, most over 200 lbs!

Big Eye Tuna often come up from the deeper colder water, where they spend most of their time, to the warmer surface waters to feed and digest their food. Our 24 and 30-hour overnight canyon trips allow us to do this plus target other species at night such as Yellowfin Tuna, Swordfish and large Mako Sharks.


The Hooked Up II is a 55′ Carolina custom charter boat based out of Cape May, New Jersey (NJ). She is one of the newest, fastest and most comfortable deluxe charter boats on the entire East Coast.

Carolina custom hulls are known for their world-class rides without excessive pounding as well as being extremely dry boats in all kinds of sea conditions. The Hooked Up II has a huge cockpit to accommodate up to 6 anglers and crew comfortably.
