"The William Knorr" is a 34' Wayne Beal. A Down East style boat designed by Calvin Beal. Built in Belfast Maine, these boats are used for lobster and commercial fishing and are extremely seaworthy. The full keel and almost flat bottom aft, produce an exceptional ride and make the boat very stable at sea. Whether we're drift fishing or anchored up 100 miles off shore there's a lot less roll with this type of hull than a typical modified V shaped hull. The sloppier the conditions the more you appreciate a Down East hull.
The vessel has all the latest USCG required safety gear. It's equipped with Raymarine 120 GPS Chart Plotter, Furuno 10" Color Sounder, 48 Mile Radar, Depth and Sea Temp Indicators, 3 VHS Radios, Auto Pilot, EPIRB and 8 Man USCG Approved Life Raft.
There's a fighting chair in the 12'-6" X 13'-0" cock pit, so there's plenty of room for six anglers and a mate. The boat is diesel powered, air conditioned, heated, and equipped with a 5KW Northern Lights generator to power a microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker. There are 2 bunks down below for overnight trips, along with a full galley, enclosed head and shower, and comfortable seating in the wheel house for the ride out to the fishing grounds.
We pick up on Long Beach Island just minutes from the open ocean in Barnegate Light NJ. We also pick up at South Winds Marina in Forked River NJ, which is less than 4 miles from exit 74 on the Garden State Parkway. So whether you're vacationing on Long Beach Island, or coming to the Jersey Shore from anywhere in the Tri-State, we're conveniently located. Our pick up locations were selected to give you the shortest boat trip possible from the dock to the action.
Inshore family fun is the goal of many who come aboard this Long Beach Island charter boat. We have a 4 hour, a 6 hour and an 8 hour trip so you can select the one that best suits your family's needs. And we can adjust the pick up time if you'd like. For those of you with small children we can fish within the Barnegat Inlet area which often produces more fish than the reef site 3 miles off the beach. Either way, the Captain and crew of the William Knorr will provide a fun day that your family will enjoy. And if the kids are new to fishing, we show them the techniques to increase the chances of catching fish.
Offshore fishing is the Captain's passion and we offer trips ranging from bottom fishing on one of the many deep water wrecks, to overnight troll and chunk trips at the canyons lasting 24 hours. We run shark trips in the spring/early summer, Tile fishing trips, and night time Bluefish trips. If an overnight troll and chunk trip is your thing this is the boat to hire. Capt Tim and his crew have the knowledge and experience that's hard to beat.
Tournament fishing charters are available for any of the New Jersey or Mid-Atlantic tournaments. Don't have a boat and want to get in on the action and fish a tournament? Call Capt Tim on his cell (908) 963-1190. He has tournament experience and can get you on the fish. We can put a crew of experienced guys together to round out the team if you only have a few guys in your group.
