    What to Expect
    Your half-day of fishing starts at Miss Chris Marina in Cape May, NJ.  You will board the Miss Chris, a 75 feet long with twin 650hp diesel engines.

    Fishing is a family tradition for many in the Southern New Jersey area and this 4-hour trip is a perfect for both the novice and the expert fisherman.  

    Once on the grounds, the Captain will let you know when its time to drop down your lines. Remember to always always keep your thumb on the spool before engaging the free spool lever. As soon as it stops going out, lock up the free spool lever, your rig is on the bottom. Wait for taps, tugs, and other signs. You are fishing.

    Between drifts or whenever you bring your rig up and leave it in the rod holder at the rail, keep the sinker and hooks low. This is for everyone's safety.  The First Mate will fillet any legal sized caught fish for you.

    This trip combines inshore and some offshore bottom fishing for species like Fluke, Bluefish, Weakfish, Kingfish, Croakers, Drumfish, Black Sea Bass, and Taug. Other species you may see include, Smooth Dogfish, Clearnosed Skates, Sharks, Sea Robins, Oyster Crackers, and others.

    Return back to the marina after 4-hours of fun on the water.

    We took our two young sons for their first experience of 'deep sea' fishing. The crew was very helpful and attentive. We moved to at least 4 spots in search of the perfect catch. While our kids didn't catch any keepers others did. Our kids caught sea bass, sea robins,

    Took a 4 hour trip out with friends. Safety is lacking on this vessel. Customer was injured as boat was still tied to dock as we pulled out. No mention of being sorry for the incident just went on as nothing happened once EMS and Police took passenger off the boat. No mention of

    We took an afternoon fishing trip on Labor Day with 4 children (ages 4-10) and 2 adults. It was a lot of fun for 4 hours. The captain went to 2-3 spots in search of fish and the crew were very helpful, knowledgeable and fun to chat with. They were very patient with the children,

    While we were on vacay in WildWood my husband took a deep sea fishing trip with Miss Chris Boats. He had a great time. They offer 4 hour trips which fit in with our schedule. The mates were great. Helped bait and take off fish. And cleaned fish on the way back in to shore.

    Boat was clean and crew was helpful. Didn't catch any keeper fish which was disappointing but there never is a guarantee. I would have liked to see a third stop like other trips we've been on. But all in all it was a decent trip and nice day out with the family.
