TRIPS AND RATES FOR 2022
To secure a trip, a $100 deposit for half-day trips, and a $300 deposit for full-day tuna trips is required to secure your reservation, which is transferable up to 1 year from your original booking date, if your trip is canceled due to weather or if you decide to cancel with at least 14 days’ notice. It is up to the captain to decide if your fishing charter will be canceled due to weather. Although we do go out in the light rain, thunderstorms and wind are the largest determining factor for cancelations. If we decide your trip should be canceled due to inclement weather, we will do our best to accommodate you.
If you are looking for large groups, we can accommodate you as well with our multiple boat package. Great for bachelor parties, wedding parties, or if you just have a lot of friends, we gotcha.
Dates available from April 15th - Dec 1st for fishing in Massachusetts

If you are not satisfied with the service and efforts of the 1st Mate Please let the Captain know before paying your gratuity. We want to make sure our service is up to expectations.
Where We Fish
For the local half day Striped bass trips we fish the Duxbury, Kingson, and Plymouth bays. The trip starts out with catching live bait about a mile offshore and bringing it back into the bays to "live line"
On a Race Point trip, we will head out a few miles and catch live bait, and then continue the 14 mile run across Massachusetts Bay. A lot of these trips are done with artificial lures or plugs as the fish move fast and is it the most effective way to land a large bass.
On Bluefin tuna trips we go where ever the bite is that week. Most the time we fish Stellwagon Bank, which is a large bank that starts 6 miles North or Provincetown. All Bluefin tuna trips are run using live bait. Each month we target them in different locations and with different techniques.
