2016 Fishing Season









The digital image (I love this picture and probably won't change it unless we have a better Ultra in the future - here's hoping!) above was taken during our longest offshore trip (twenty-four hours) called the ultra marathon. This one, on July 19, 2005, was one of the more enjoyable Ultras. But it will be most remembered by the number of large cod that were caught on the trip. Also, the weather was perfect with a clam ocean all day.. Some of the best anglers I have ever known appear in the shot above. From right to left are Bob Withee (NH), to his left is Don Johnson (MA), Jim Feeney (MA) appears next to Don, Fred Kunz (NH) has the blue knife on his belt in the corner and Tim Williams (CT) has just hooked into a big one on the stern. All these anglers are hooked up to cod in the 30 pound range (more or less). It was the one time this year that I had the camera ready at the right time. The Ultra is much like our other marathons with slightly less anglers and almost a full twenty-four hour day on the water. Tickets for the Ultra are by invitation only.



2016 Season Schedule and Rates

April 14 through November 1 Daily

Edited January 11, 2016
Note: Note: Reservations for the 2016 season will be commencing on February 1, 2015 at 12:01 AM local time or 0001 EST. Reservations will not be accepted "in person", "email" or "by letter" until February 2, 2015. Ticket prices have remained the same as they were last season and for the last five seasons! We reserve the right to add a fuel surcharge during the 2016 season if prices escalate to unreasonable values.

FULL DAY FISHING TRIPS - 7:00 A.M. to 3 P.M. - $85.00/person(Max 30 passengers).
HALF DAY FISHING TRIPS - 4 P.M. to 8 P.M. - $50.00/person(Max.30 passengers).
CHARTERS ALSO AVAILABLE
EXTREME DAY FISHING TRIPS - 7 A.M. TO 5 P.M. - $125.00/person (Limited to 20 passengers). These trips were new in 2007 with only 26 pilot trips scheduled for that first year. This year (2016), we have scheduled 85 Extreme Day trips. [We experimented with adding more than two extra anglers on three separate occasions during the 2007 season. This didn't work. In 2008, we went back to the maximum number of anglers as advertised with much better results. We will keep the number at 20 passengers from now on, although, I (Tim Tower - no one else) reserve the right to add one more person to any trip we offer, and that policy still stands only on the extreme day trips and the marathon trips. These trips sell themselves on the extra room and extra time fishing.]

The Extreme Day trip* dates for the 2016 fishing season are as follows:

April: 15,17,18,20,22,24,25,27 & 29
May: 1,2,4,6,8***,9,11,13,15,16,18,20,22,23,25,27,29 & 30 June:1,3,5,6,8,10,12,13,15,17,19,20,22,24,26,27 & 29 July: 4,11,18 & 25 August: 1,8,15,22 & 29 September: 2,4,5(Labor Day),7,9,11,12,14,16,19,21,23,26,28 & 30 October:2,3,5,7,9,10,12,14,16,17,19,21,23,24,26,28,30 & 31

***Note: May 8th (Mother's Day) is scheduled as a charter only. We will not sail on this trip unless a charter has booked the boat for that day.

ARRIVAL TIME: Please arrive 1 hour before departure to secure your reservation.

MARATHON FISHING TRIPS** - 5 A.M. to 5 P.M. - $170.00 per person (Max. 18 passengers). We are running 42 scheduled marathon trips this season. It is mandatory to call about departure times the day before your trip leaves. If you do not call you could be left on the dock if we leave earlier and you aren't there to leave with the boat (It has happened.). There are no refunds for missing the boat. If the weather is good and the fishing is better further offshore, we leave earlier (between 3 AM and 4 AM) in order to take advantage of calmer seas and faster cruising speeds.
Note: As was scheduled during the 2014 & 2015 season, the marathons are an event that take place on Tuesday's & Thursdays, normally. However, in previous years, most of our marathon trip charters occurred on Monday & Friday during the week. This will be available in 2016 as well, the two days normally reserved for extreme day trips. The differences include: a. This is a charter only situation. b. The date has to be free of any extreme day reservations. c. This is available every month except for July & August. d. Tim will not be the captain on this trip. The captain will be Ian Keniston or, possibly, Jared Keniston.

Charter Rates:

FULL DAY FISHING TRIPS - 7 A.M. to 3 P.M. - $2,550.00 minimum for 1 to 30 anglers.

Marathon Trips:

1. Persons must be at the dock 1 hour before departure.
2. Very large and/or empty coolers are to be left ashore.
