C&M Sportfishing

C&M Sportfishing is more than just a boating experience. The crew caters to anglers of all skill levels and specializes in customizing trips that can suit any fisherman’s specific needs.

Based out of Sea Isle City, New Jersey, the company is run and operated by a father-and-son team who both share the same passion. Captain Chet has been mastering the waters for well over three decades, while his son Captain Michael has over 10 years of experience. Both of them have successfully taken part in various tournaments over the years.

Your day out will take you fishing the waters up to 40-50 miles out. You can explore the waters close to shore and see what’s biting within the 12-mile range, including Seabass, Blackfish, and Flounder.

Or you could venture out to the wrecks for the likes of bigger Blackfish, Ling, Cod, and Jumbo Seabass. And finally, there is a trip for all those “Jaws” fans, where you will be able to get your hands on Thresher, Brown, Dusky, and Hammerhead Sharks.

C&M Sportfishing will take you out aboard a 27’ Blackfin boat. It is a spacious vessel that comes powered by twin 200 HP Yamaha engines and can cruise at a top speed of 25 knots. The boat has plenty of space for up to 6 anglers, a pair of GPS and fishfinders, a flybridge, and outriggers.

All trips come with the use of gear, tackle, bait, and lures, as well as licenses and catch cleaning. If needed, rods for left-handed can also be provided.

I have been fishing and boating my entire life. I love the joy of being out on the water. I fish for almost anything, if I have to pick a specialty it would be bottom fishing, Fluke, Sea Bass, Blackfishing, and other groundfish. I am also very good when it comes to Stripers.
