Striper season -- late May till mid October  Beverages and snacks are provided for all trips at no charge-- Saltwater license is provided for both New Hampshire and Maine waters. Captain is a USCG Capain and Registered Maine Guide --- and the boat has a New Hampshire charter boat permit along with a NMFS Permit. 
Tuna season is generally mid to late July thru Sept for Inshore Tuna. All Tuna tackle is provided which includes Fly - Spinning and Offshore Reels and bent butt rods  -- Beverages and snacks are provided for all trips. Based on Gas prices in 2014 there maybe a fuel  surcharge on Tuna Trips. I prefer to take 3 anglers on all Tuna Trips. Your Captain has a HMS Tuna Permit in the Charter/Headboat category -- the boat is permited in both in federal and state waters --- so a New Hampshire or Maine saltwater license is not required for all trips.

A typical day can start early in the morning 5 or 6 am based on tides . The Captain reserves the right to cancel or terminate trips due to weather, safety or sea conditions.
