Using a top of the line Garmin 94 SV fishfinder/GPS, TideCharters operates a 20-foot Lund Alaskan, with a 90HP Yamaha outboard for safe, fast and reliable access to prime fishing spots on the Merrimack River.The charter fishing boat is equipped and exceeds all the required United States Coast Guard safety equipment requirements.
Designed to access very shallow water, our bow-mounted Minn Kota Terrova electric trolling motor, with Spot-lock, allows our fishermen to lock and hold on a hot fishing spot where the stripers are biting.
Using flies, plugs or other artificial baits, stripers can be caught near rocks, marsh edges and in shallow water.
For bait fishermen, we start the trip by jigging for mackerel or snagging pogies (menhaden), and then use the bait to drift or troll for striped bass and bluefish. Cut bait is also an option.
