Prime Time II Sport Fishing

Prime Time II Sport Fishing is at your service! Meet your guide, Capt. Steve Beer, who operates out of Wildwood Crest, NJ. You can find him on the water any day between May and late September. Capt. Steve runs fishing trips that are suitable for angler of any skill level. You don’t have to be a lifelong enthusiast to have a great day on the water.

Join your captain on his 35’ Maine Coaster that accommodates up to 6 guests. The boat is powered by a mighty 450 HP Cummins engine, to ensure you a safe and comfortable ride. There’s an enclosed cabin with lots of seating space, a private toilet, and plenty of deck room for battling huge fish.

Your catch depends on the time of year. The season usually opens with specialized Drum trips and progresses to trolling for Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and Spanish Mackerel. But it doesn’t end there! You can also try spinning, bottom, and deep sea fishing for Flounder, Striped Bass, Bluefish, and Shark.

Capt. Steeve will provide you with Shimano and Penn fishing equipment and bait. If you want to keep the catch for a meal, the first mate will clean and fillet it for you free of charge (but tips are always appreciated). Feel free to bring snacks, drinks, and sunscreen.

If there’s anything you would like to discuss in advance, just contact the captain. He’ll do his best to make this fishing trip the one you’ll never forget. Spend a day with Prime Time II Sport Fishing and discover your new hobby!

Captain Steve has been fishing for over 40 years in the area. For years, he was teaching people to fish and was taking them out on his boat. At one point, he decided to do this full time and make it into a profession. The best part of it is that you constantly meet new, fun people and catch fish at the same time.
