Captain Jay and his crew nick made this experience extremely memorable they went above and beyond on our tuna fish adventure this was my team's first boat and fishing experience by the time we came back to the dock people thought we did this for a living catching 4 huge yellow tail tuna the boat was extremely well maintained equipped and was more than comfortable for I and 5 of my friends would definitely choose captain Jay Again!

We had an awesome time. Our Captain, Jay, and his Mate, Cort, could not have been more attentive and helpful. Jay would bring us to a spot, let us fish for a bit, and if we weren’t getting any hits, he would move us to a different spot! This was our second time on this boat, and it will always be part of our vacation going forward! Would highly recommend!

Captain and crew are always exceptional to deal with. I’ve been out with these folks 3 times now and every time every one on the boat has had the opportunity to catch our target fish. While that last bit is subjective to some level of luck the crew is still friendly and fun to be around. I would strongly recommend those considering chartering out of NJ to look no further than Side Job Sportfishing .

Captain Jay and Cort made our trip a blast. The stripers weren't biting too well, but we made up for it on the seabass grounds. The boat is comfortable and the fishing is good.

Captain Jay & the side job team are the Most professional, experienced crew you can ask for !! If the fish are not biting (we didn’t have that problem) Jay will find them no doubt ! You won’t be disappointed. Top notch team!! Can’t wait to book our next trip! Thank you

Just came back from a tuna overnighter, my first time booking with Captain J on the side job and we’ll be booking again soon. Captain J put us on the best bluefin bite I’ve seen going 4 for 6 on some big overs with unders and yellowfin in the mix. Captain J puts you on the fish and we’ll be booking another trip on the Side Job very soon

Excellent captain and crew service! Over the course of the entire trip, we felt secure and at ease. I will most certainly use this crew again!! TONS of fish were involved.
