Booking now for charters in 2020, from May to October!



Booking now 2020!  We caught a lot of nice fish in 2019.  We expect 2020 to be even better.

 Enjoy a great fishing charter for big striped bass in historic Essex Massachusetts on the beautiful Essex River  and nearby Cape Ann waters of Gloucester, Rockport, Ipswich, and Plum Island with Captain Eric Nelson.  Captain Eric has more than 35 years of experience fishing these waters.  

 Enjoy views of the river, marsh, Cranes Beach, and wildlife while fishing.  The Essex River is pristine and mostly surrounded by conservation land.  It is described by many as one of the most beautiful areas on the East Coast. 

 We specialize in live bait fishing for stripers (there is nothing more exciting than catching a big striper on a live mackerel).  

 My boat Striper is a Parker 18 with 115 Yamaha four stroke, with tee top and forward casting platform  - perfect for the river and close in to the beach.   

 We have the latest in fishing electronics technology-the Garmin Echomap 94SV-with advanced fish finding capability including side looking sonar in addition to traditional sonar. 

 Capt. Eric caters to fishing pros as well as families wanting to have a fun day on the water.  Sightseeing trips are also available.  

We guarantee you will have a fun experience.

The boat is docked in Essex, Massachusetts.
