Congratulations to Jersey Boy Charters and their big win at the 2020 White Marlin Open this year! Out of Ocean City, MD, the White Marlin Open tournament is the world’s largest billfish tournament and draws in thousands of contestants each year. A record of $6.8 million in prize money is given, $375,000 of which was won by the Jersey Boy Charters crew. Jersey Boy is captained by Adrian Avena, a professional and recreational fisherman experienced in both saltwater and fresh.
The Jersey Boy crew battled a huge 273.5 lb. swordfish, putting their PENN Fishing rods and reels to work. The award-winning swordfish was landed by Avena’s longtime friend and fishing buddy Kyle Gagliardi, winning in the big fish category.
Professional and recreational fisherman Avena fishes aboard the Jersey Boy, a 2020 Sea-Lion 34TE, in the Atlantic Ocean out of Cape May, New Jersey. The custom built center console is equipped with triple 300 horsepower Suzuki outboards, a full second station, Lowrance electronics package, 130 gallons of livewell space including a 50 gallon in-floor livewell––all around customized to be an offshore fishing machine set up exactly the way they needed it to be successful in tournaments like the White Marlin Open.
Sea-Lion Boats’ 34TE center console is designed to brave the sea. Featuring a 22.5º deadrise and a ten-foot beam, the 34TE can take on rough waves, while maintaining a stable and comfortable smooth, dry ride. This comfort and maneuverability makes the 34TE a coveted choice for fishing and recreational purposes and one of the best boats for offshore fishing.
