A very nice boat with the best captain and a wonderful crew. the boat was clean and comfortable with nice soft seats in side.The captain was taking cement blocks out to build what he calls black fish condos. The captain and his crew helped anyone...More
I agree with other posts, Capt Monty Hawkins offers one of the best headboat fishing experiences anywhere. I've been on specialty high quality long range headboats up and down the east coast. The capt uses a pleasant eastern shore brogue to instruct customers, and the...More
Have been on head boats in OC before, first time on Morning Star, will never go back to the others. Monty will put you on fish, regular first mate was ill this day but Doug did a great job! You have room on his boat,...More
Fortunately, the weather was good and the seas calm. Even though it took a couple of hours to get to the fishing grounds, it was worth it. So many fish! So much fun! We brought back several large bags of fillets. We caught mostly sea...More
Capt. Monty Hawkins will put you on the fish and his excellent mates will keep you fishing. Rates are a little higher than other boats because he takes a max of 25 fishing on a 55 foot boat. You have far fewer tangled lines and...More
I am a Native Floridian who grew up fishing in South Florida and my very first real fishing trip was in the Florida Keys. Many years later I relocated to the Mid-Atlantic. I am a saltwater fisherman to the core but living near the beltway...More
Morning Star fishing pioneered head boat fishing that fishes like a charter. First thing Monty did when he bought the Morning Star was to rip out every other rod holder and giving anglers twice as much space to fish and reducing tangles as much as...More
Captain Monty is the best captain on the East Coast, period. He puts you on the fish. He has the most precise anchor sets of any boat I fish on, and I fish on more than a few. This is particularly important for winter tautog...More
This was a great selection for charter boat fishing. The crew is great. It's a well managed boat. Early and timely departure with a large selection of fish sites throughout the day. All you need to bring is a ice cooler for your catch and...More

Captain Monty runs year-round. When you subscribe to his email he will announce the days he's going out during the winter as he will only go out when weather permits. Winter is great for Tog fishing and he generally only takes about 12 people for the winter Tog trips. By April he will probably be fishing for Black Sea Bass. Again go on the Morning Star web site and subscribe so you can get weekly updates. He is very active in reef building and fisheries management so you will also get a lot of interesting updates on legislation and seasonal closures of some fish species. From my experience the trips are paid for ahead by calling the reservation number and are $110.00/ person. This is a great boat to go on for fishing and is well equipped but it might be a bit much for a three year old if you're out for eight hours and there is any chop (sea-sickness).
