I've been on many trips aboard the Rita B both commercial and sport. Capt Ed. is a top notch fisherman and mariner. He runs a safe and efficient charter. A true Mainer that always knows where the fish are!

Email (links found on our website, can't post here for some reason) is the best way to contact us. We do offer trips into October, although the weather is less predictable later in the fall.
