Welcome to J&M Sport Fishing in beautiful Monterey, California we have transformed the historic Randy’s Fishing Trips into a new business adventure.
Whether as an individual, family, group charter, corporate event, or just plain fun – there is something for everyone.
A day from which wonderful memories and tales are made! Our daily fishing trips depart from Monterey Old Fisherman’s Wharf.
Whale watching trips are still available through our sister company – Discovery Whale Watch. Please check them out at www.discoverywhalewatch.com for more information.
Current Season & Updates
Crab season is OPEN! This year the season began on Nov 7th & we will be running crab trips through the end of March. Currently we are running Sand Dab and crab combos until March 31st.
Once April 1st hits, Rockfish/Lingcod season begins! We will be offering full day trips departing at 6:30am as well as limited half day (4 hour trips) that will depart at 3pm. Salmon season also typically opens sometime in April. The season can last anywhere from the end of April to October. Stay tuned for updates!
Our four hour afternoon Rock cod trips were so popular during the Summer that we have extended them through the Fall! These 4 hour trips are mostly running Thursdays-Sundays and there are two time slots available: 8am and 2pm! We may adjust start times as the sun continues to set earlier and earlier. **Limited availability as the month of November progresses**
If you are traveling and unsure as to what to do with your fish-our deckhands can fillet your fish for you (for a fee) & you can take your fresh fillets over to our friends at Café Fina, who offer a “fresh catch” meal deal! For more information regarding this fishery please visit our “Trips” section.
**Now offering HALIBUT TRIPS and Rock cod/Halibut Combo Trips on limited availability based on the bite** (California Halibut fishery is open all year and we will open up trips based on how the bite is doing) We will also be planning a series of “exploratory” flat fish trips targeting multiple species.
On occasion, BLUE FIN TUNA even makes an appearance in the Bay! We had some successful extremely limited load trips this year run by Captain/Co-Owner John. Call to be put on a call list for this fishery!
