Open Boat Trips

  • This is saltwater-style head boat fishing, only on a brand-new pontoon boat on beautiful Lake Hopatcong! Boat holds up to 8 anglers, each spot is open for reservation in advance of the trip. Trips are from 6 – 10 PM and dates will be announced in advanced and can be found via the Lake Hopatcong Guide Service Facebook page or by calling Lakeview Marina. Each outing will be with a member of Lake Hopatcong Guide Service’s team of guides, though their sole responsibility on these trips is to ensure the safety and enjoyment of the group. All guests are responsible for their own fishing-related activities – including baiting hooks, tying knots, removing fish from hooks, etc. The location of your trip and fishing methods are provided daily by Aaron Graybill, full-time guide and founder, based on the hottest bite on the lake.
