Booking now for charters in 2024, May through October!
Booking now for 2024. For the 2023 season, we caught stripers on all trips, with bass bigger than 40 inches taken on many trips, plus many smaller ones.
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 40 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. New in 2023, a brand-new, reliable, quiet Yamaha 115.
We have the latest in fishing electronics technology. New in 2023 - Garmin GPSMAP 943XSV, with advanced fish finding capability including high-definition 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 enjoy the experience.
The boat is docked in Essex, Massachusetts.
