3 or 4-Hour Inshore Trip | Light Spinning and Fly Tackle
Inshore trips typically target Striped Bass using light spinning and fly tackle. Other species available on inshore trips include bluefish, small cod, flounder, mackerel and pollock.
Since we are rarely more than 10 minutes from fishing, the majority of the trips we run June - September are 4 hour inshore trips.
The 4 hour trips typically run 7:30 - 11:30ish or 12:00 - 4:00ish. These are perfect for family trips, as well as for folks who want to experience the wonderful fishery we have.
Our basic feeling is that if the fish are biting, 4 hours is plenty of time to have fun. If the fish aren’t biting, then more time probably isn’t going to make a big difference. However, for folks who just can’t get enough time on the water, we are happy to run longer trips.
Boats accommodate 3 / 4 Adults Per Boat, but two adults is ideals for max fishing time.
Larger party = No problem: We can easily arrange multiple boat trips for larger groups. These tend to be quite fun, as we depart and return together, and can often fish together, and it can be made as competitive as desired :-) Large trips up to 30 can be accommodated. Rates are per boat.
Randy out of Marblehead, MA is the personification of what every captain should strive to be….intelligent, personable, prepared, hard-working and most importantly he delivers. I have had the privilege of fishing with great guides in Florida, the Carolinas, the Caribbean, the Arctic and up and down the West Coast, but none have come close to the experience that Randy offers. It doesn’t matter if we are digging Striped Bass out of the rocks inshore or chasing giant Bluefin Tuna offshore on Stellwagon Bank, Randy always gets us on the fish. Fishing with Randy is a must do every season. - J. Mayer

Rules & Guidelines
Number of Participants
Adults: In the 23’ – 26’ Center Consoles that we fish, 2 adults is ideal for maximum fishing time, room to move about, and overall enjoyment. Three adults is fine, thought there may be times (depending on fishing methods) where we are only fishing two rods. Four adults can be accommodated, but recognize that space gets tight, and “rod-in-hand” time is reduced.
Kids/Families: We can easily accommodate two adults and two children, one adult & three children, or four (up to six) children solo. Two adults & three children is OK, with the understanding that we are focused on creating a fun experience for the kids, so the adults should not plan on lots of rod-in-hand time for themselves.
Group Trips: With multiple boats, we can accommodate groups of up to 30 people. Group trips can be very fun, can be a great company moral booster, and are easy to organize. The above rates apply per boat.
People often ask “Is a gratuity normal/expected?”. We recognize that the cost of a fishing charter is not insignificant. At the same time, the cost of running a charter business is also significant. As a generalization, if you feel you had a memorable trip, a 10% - 20% gratuity is not uncommon.
