February 25, 2017
Thank you to everyone who fished with us in 2016. We hope you enjoyed yourself and we hope to see you again this year on one of the VOYAGER's many fishing adventures.
In true VOYAGER tradition we have continued making improvements to the boat. For 2017 we are happy to report that we have installed four new MARINE GRADE SLIDING DOORS to the deckhouse. The new doors will keep the cool air inside during the summer and the hot air inside during the winter. We have also replaced our exterior overhead floodlights with new LED FLOODLIGHTS. These new floodlights will really light up the water during Tuna season. Lastly, we have added ADDITIONAL AIR CONDITIONING & HEAT to the below deck bunkroom.
We have just posted our 2017 OFFSHORE SCHEDULE and
YOU CAN SEE OUR 2017 SCHEDULE ON THE TRIP CALENDAR PAGE
The following are 2017 trip description highlights…
VOYAGER COD TRIPS
We are very excited to announce our 3-DAY NANTUCKET WRECK ADVENTURE on Memorial Day weekend!
On this trip we will fish legendary wrecks such as the Republic, the Pan Pennsylvania, and the Andrea Doria. We will search for Giant Cod, Jumbo Pollock, White Hake and Sea Bass and will be fishing depths from 200 to 350 feet using both bait and jigs. The trip will leave at 7:00 PM Friday, May 26 and return approximately three days later at 7:00 PM Monday, May 29. The trip is limited to just 32 anglers for your fishing comfort.
We will also be making Friday night BLOCK ISLAND AND NORTHEAST COD WRECKS TRIPS in March and LIMITED LOAD COD WRECK TRIPS throughout the spring and summer. The Limited Load Cod Trips fish wrecks from 40 to 80 miles offshore. They leave at 12:30 AM and return around 6:00 PM and are limited to 35 anglers. Please see the Trip Calendar page for specific dates. All anglers get sleeping bunks on these trips.
VOYAGER TILEFISH TRIPS
This year we will once again have 2-DAY MULTI-SPECIES TRIPS in addition to our regular 2-DAY TILEFISH ONLY TRIPS. This is in response to those anglers that want to use their time offshore to fish for more than one species. The multi-species trips this year include TILEFISH/ROSEFISH (one trip is limited load), TILEFISH/MID-RANGE WRECKS (Cod, Pollock, Ling), and TILEFISH/MAHI trips.
This year we are making two WORLD RECORD HUNT TRIPS. The first trip is a 2-day limited man trip taking only 21 anglers and the second trip is a 2½-day limited man trip taking 23 anglers.
VOYAGER TUNA TRIPS
In addition to our regular OVERNIGHT CANYON TUNA TRIPS, we are offering four LIMITED LOAD 30-HOUR TUNA/MAHI TRIPS this year. Two of the trips are Tuesday trips and two are Thursday trips.
For the extra hearty angler, we have a special COLUMBUS DAY 2-DAY TUNA/MAHI TRIP featuring two nights of Tuna fishing. This trip leaves at 5:00 PM Saturday October 7 and returns between 2-3:00 PM Monday October 9.
All Tuna trips are limited to 26 passengers unless otherwise specified. All anglers get sleeping bunks on VOYAGER Tuna Trips. Please see the Trip Calendar page for specific dates.
VOYAGER SEA BASS TRIPS
This year we will be making OFFSHORE JUMBO SEA BASS AND PORGY TRIPS leaving at 11:00 PM on most Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights in November and December. We plan to start these overnight trips in early November and head out to the eastern wrecks to "meet" the fall Sea Bass migration. All anglers get bunks on these trips. Please see the Trip Calendar page for specific dates.

As we move closer to the end of the year many folks have been asking us what we are doing in January, are we closing up shop? The answer is HECK NO!
The Voyager will be sailing COD TRIPS TO BLOCK ISLAND and some Northeast Wrecks on the first three Friday nights in January (1/06, 1/13 and 1/20). The trips will leave at 8:00 PM and Return between 8:00-10:00 PM on Saturday night. The fare for these trips is $250 per person and reservations are required. If you would like to book one of these trips, please contact us by e-mail at Info@voyagerfishing.com.
For those of you looking for shorter trips we will be running OPEN BOAT WRECK FISHING TRIPS on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday mornings at 5:00 AM. Due to current regulations, these trips will target Porgies, Cod, Ling or whatever we can legally catch.
You can check our TRIP CALENDAR page after 6:00 PM the night before these OPEN BOAT trips to make sure that the weather is favorable and that we are sailing. We do not plan to sail on poor weather days.
The VOYAGER is scheduled to go to the shipyard around the third week of January for routine maintenance and a few more upgrades. We expect to be back by mid-February and will post the rest of our winter schedule as we get closer.
