The weather was not cooperative when we were there, so Capt Ben called and told us to not waste our time and money (very honest!). We still wanted to go out so he gave us a cruise of the Bay and a history lesson! Who knew there were civil war forts out there and seals sunning on a rock. Very... More

Captain Ben was extremely knowledgeable, skillful, experienced, patient, helpful, and caring. He helped us find and catch the fish we were after even though it was off peak season for stripers; we caught the biggest fish of our lives. Adding to our fishing pleasure was a boat that was clean, comfortable, and well equipped. We had such a good time... More

We just had a great morning of fishing with Capt. Ben. He took me and my son out and we immediately caught 25 or 30 makerel for bait and moved onto some great cove fishing for striper bass. The fish hit all morning and we ended up keeping one monster for dinner. My son and I had a blast.

I have been out with Ben many times in Maine and once for giant tarpon in the Keys. This years challenge, my energetic 10 year old nephew this year. Ben kept him busy, engaged and my nephew loved every minute. This will be an annual trip now.
