Just finished full day trip. Caught lots of fish. Only issue I have is, so many people smoking on lower outside deck, when they are suppose to go to upper deck. Yankee needs to better enforce.

Went on a marathon trip , booked it for 95.00 each , one for my son and one for myself. They called a week later to inform me the price went up 35.00 each because of covid 19 because of the fact they would be at half capacity. Paid the extra 35.00 each , rather be safe then sorry . Got there the day of the trip and the boat was at maximum capacity !! Nobody had masks on including the deck hands , when it was time to get the fish cleaned people were basically on top of each other and the two cleaning the fish didn't even have masks on . I called when I got back home wanting a refund of the extra 70.00 that we had to pay, I was told someone would get back to me the next day to resolve this issue , no one did so I called back a few days later , I was told the same thing , nobody ever got back to me ! My son and I have fished on Yankee fleet for the last five years, never again , the least they could have done was to return my call ! I will say fishing that day was tough , a lot of tangles and twisted lines because of all the people !!! BEWARE PEOPLE , YANKEE FLEET IS PRICE GOUGING AND USING COVID 19 TO MAKE MONEY !!!!!!

June 3rd, it was a great day to go fishing. We sailed out to Jeffrey's Ledge. The ocean was calm, the boat was clean, the crew could not have been more friendly and helpful. There was an abundance of fish to catch. I caught a keeper Cod, and 10 Haddock and thankfully only one dogfish. Other people caught their limit for Haddock. and there were a few Cusk, Red fish, and a few other types of fish to be had. The captain moved several times to keep us on the Haddock. Due to COVID-19 they only had a fraction of the fisherman on board they would have normally carried, Pre-Covid-19. I would strongly recommend them.

I had the privilege of taking my 12 year old grandson out last Saturday. The crew and fellow passengers were a friendly bunch. The equipment was in good condition and the captain moved the boat a few times until he found a good school of haddock. Also caught some mackerel and others. Lots of fun and beautiful weather.

I just want to take the time to thank Captain Tom and his Crew, Kevin & Katelyn, for a great day of fishing. We booked a 1/2 Day Trip in the morning and had so much fun and caught so many fish that we went back out with them for the afternoon. Captain Tom is fantastic at knowing where to find the fish and he didn’t hesitate to lift the anchor and try another spot if the fish weren’t biting. If you love to go deep sea fishing; Yankee Fleet is the place to call.
