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!

Capt. Ed Snell is a true professional mariner and a seasoned fisherman. He will put you on the fish in the safe, properly outfitted Rita B. I recommend a trip on the Rita B. with Capt. Ed Snell without reservations.
