Heavy Hitter Sport Fishing LLC

Join Heavy Hitter and score a home run with Captain George Smith, aboard his 35’ Bertram sportfisher. Once you hit the open waters, you’ll be pleasantly surprised with what you find! Cape May, NJ is perhaps one of the most underrated fishing destinations in the US and provides some of the best action for anglers of all levels of experience.

The captain’s boat is just the vessel you want for an offshore excursion. She comes fully stocked with state-of-the-art navigational systems and electronics, outriggers and downriggers, a flybridge, private head, bed, and kitchen. She’s also wheelchair accessible, equipped with all necessary safety equipment, and safe for children of all ages. The captain can take up to 6 people per trip and each person can fish at the same time.

Once you reach the offshore fishing grounds, you’ll be trolling for a range of pelagics, such as White Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Yellowfin, and Bluefin Tuna. For your inshore trips, Capt. George will take you on an epic battle against some hard-fighters like Striped Bass, Bluefish, and Back Drum. Some other species you can target include Spanish Mackerel, Black Seabass, and Triggerfish as well. Each trip includes top-quality Penn and Shimano rods and reels, live bait, lures, and a first mate to assist you with anything you need.

Gear into action and get ready for Heavy Hitter Sportfishing to show you what big game fishing is all about! Your fishing license is included in the trip, so you can focus more on the fishing and less about the logistics. Everything is taken care of, all you need to do is book your trip, bring some snacks, drinks, comfortable clothing, and let Capt. George show you a great time!

Captain George Smith has over 20 years of experience as a licensed captain. He grew up fishing his whole life, so making a living out of it was a natural move for him. Capt. George always goes the extra mile and he “never fishes by the clock,” meaning he doesn't leave the water until the job is complete. He genuinely enjoys taking people out and having them catch as many fish as possible. He wants his customers to know that he’s extremely honest when it comes to fishing conditions and will always let you know how it’s looking ahead of time. Join Capt. George aboard the Heavy Hitter and get ready for a fun day fishing off the coast of Cape May, NJ!
