Trips for the hard core fisherman and those that want to fill their coolers with fillets or catch a fish of a life time.
Expect to fill your cooler with fresh haddock, cod and pollock fillets. Fast action and easy fishing is the general rule.
The giant bluefin tuna we catch are typically 400-600 pounds but ones tipping the scales to 1000 pounds are not unusual. Generally tuna fishing trips are extended beyond 10 hours to maximize potential of catching. All tuna over 73” belong to the boat per NMFS rules. When a commercial giant tuna is landed the charter party will be credited 15% of the net proceeds to the boat for the sale of the fish, up to 50% of the cost of their trip. School Tuna (under 73") may be kept by the charter party.
These trips are for those that want a chance to catch a tuna but a guarantee to come home with fish for dinner.
We will set up for stand up shark fishing and catch ground fish along the way.
Trips for the less hard core fisherman.
Close to shore family friendly fishing for the highly prized Striped Bass.
Catch your dinner and then some. With the resurgence of haddock stocks we have found productive grounds that are 5-8 miles offshore to allow you to catch good numbers of these fun to catch and tasty fish on a shorter close to home trip.
The ultimate in offshore deep sea fishing adventures. We will run to Fippennies Ledge, about 65 NM from Gloucester MA. This area is closed to commercial fishing and the last few years the cod, haddock and pollock fishing has been outstanding. In addition, most trips produce a halibut. Sharks and Tuna can also be targeted and caught opportunistically as we are ground fishing. These 13-14 hour marathon trips will be run in June, July or August (and are highly weather dependent).
Contact us by phone, email or our contact form and we will add you to our list to notify you of upcoming open boat trips as they become available (once we have 5-6 individuals signed up, charter date to be agreed upon).
Shared offshore full day fishing charter trips are $250 pp, and offer a great value if you have some flexibility with your schedule.
