Ok to be honest we only caught mackerel and Pollack on our 4 hour trip but that's because the rain was coming down in buckets and we had to return after 2 hours at sea. They did not charge us and were very apologetic. Captain and crew were awesome and did their best to make the time fun. As stated... More

We went out yesterday on the inshore trip. We have been going deep sea fishing every summer for the last 6 years with them. As usual we had a great time fishing with them. They supply all the gear and set it up for you. They are really friendly and helpful. They even clean the fish if you want to... More

We had a very nice trip with three staff from Captain Satch's. Beautiful day and a lot of fun, but we were really disappointed that we didn't catch any fish. Also, our original trip had to get moved since the date we booked only had us on it and they wanted to get more people on the boat, which kind... More

When I read the 2 poor reviews, I almost fell off of my chair!!! I have fished on many boats in Hawaii, Cancun, Montauk ,Great lakes etc and understand that this is called fishing not catching. With that said, I have never walked away from a trip feeling this totally ripped off even when the fishing was at it's slowest.... More

The first mate, Joe, satches grandson was full of energy and could not be more helpful. We set out... More

I cannot express in enough positive terms how much we enjoyed the Satch & Sons 10 hour deep sea fishing trip! As landlocked Canadian city dwellers, we had zero deep sea fishing experience and were a little apprehensive about booking this trip. But right from the booking, we were made to feel comfortable and enthusiastic. Captain Satch's operation is nothing... More

We just completed a 10 hour fishing excursion with Captain Satch and first mate Keith. This was definitely our best and most memorable day in Maine so far. These guys are not only pros at what they do but they are also the nicest people you could spend 10 hours with on a boat! Time flew by, caught LOTS of... More

So captan satch seemed like a cool guy but stayed on land. The boat operator was nice but kind of an goof. Deckhand was great. Basically as said. 2 and a half hours were unsuccessfully fishing for bait when he had plenty on board already. In addition this was supposed to be just the 6 of us for a pre... More

There is limited cabin space to get out of the sun so prepare. Porta potty not so nice so I suggest toilet paper and wipes for... More

This will be the third year my teen son and I have gone on offshore fishing trips with Captain Satch in August. Every trip has been great and we're already looking forward to next year. His schedule fills up fast, but we were able to join a 10-hour offshore group trip this time. Satch limits the group trips to six... More
