Striped Bass, Christmas Eve Special

Quick Details


Terrific action and great table fare!

Booking in advance is highly recommended. Please book early to maximize your chances of getting the day and time you prefer.

The Gambler’s 5 Hour Striped Bass Trips can be very exciting indeed. Striped bass have made a great come back over the last 20 years and provide terrific action and great table fare.

Like any other fish in the ocean, striped bass can be a challenge to catch. The Gambler specializes in seeking them out in the spring and fall and we even run some evening trips for them in the spring. The Gambler was one of the very first boats to begin targeting striped bass in the late 1980’s, and we have pioneered many of the jigging methods used by others along the coast today.

Striped bass range in size from small “throw-backs” to “cows” of up to 50+ lbs. Along with Stripers, we often catch big bluefish — also good eating fare. Incidental catches may incude weakfish.

Our spacious cabin is heated during the cooler seasons for your comfort and is a good place to relax while the captain heads to the striper grounds.

Our mates are always there to help when needed, from instruction to fish filleting at the end of the trip. We will have virtually everything you need on board. Rod and reel rental, bait (included when needed), lures, food and beverages, ice and a place to store you catch.

Don’t forget to dress in warm layers and boots and rain gear may come in handy. Taking pictures is a great idea and you can upload pictures right onto this website.

Please arrive at least 1 hour early to check-in and secure your equipment. The boat will leave promptly and can not wait for late arrivals.
