About the Captain

Captain Nelson brings a life time of experience and 25 years of charter boat fishing knowledge to his clients. Born and raised on the shores of the Raritan Bay, Captain Nelson caught the “fishing fever” at age 3 when he caught his first fish. At age 10 he purchased his first boat and spent the summers drifting the flats for fluke, blues, porgies and weakfish. At 17 years old he started working on charter and party boats up and down the Jersey coast honing his skills to fulfill a lifelong dream of running his own charter boat. After successfully securing a 100 ton masters near coastal license, Captain Nelson introduces to you the F/V Roman ‘Round. Captain Nelson prides himself on the theory that running a charter boat is not a job but an adventure for himself, as well as those that charter him. He cherishes every day on the water. Looks forward to making new friends. And steps up to the challenge of finding and catching fish for his clients with a no holds barred attitude. Captain Nelson has an uncanny ability to find and catch fish.

At Roman Round Sport fishing charters we pay attention to all the details. Some of our returning charters are novice fisherman who appreciate every little ounce of information we can give them. While others are avid fisherman who bring their own tackle and sometimes their own favorite bait. We will never run a trip without a qualified first mate or with faulty equipment. While you are on my boat you are my responsibility. We don’t condone beer on our boat. But do not allow hard liquor, drugs or disorderly drunkenness. I hold the right to return to port if I feel necessary. Charters can only be cancelled upon my discretion when it comes to weather conditions. Rain is not a reason to cancel a trip and deposit will be kept in such cases. Charters start at time given. Not the time you show up. All state and federal restrictions on fish limits and sizes are strictly enforced.
