If you're on the island and you'd like to spend a day or half-day on the water give us a call. The weather has been beautiful and the fishing has been good. We have charters that will take you fishing, clamming or shelling. You can even fish along the beach on one of our Nearshore boats. A bad day fishing is better than a good day at work.
